  • Here's a photo from my RX100VII and processed with PL6. As you can see the colors are fine. Click on the color tab and check the settings.

    The facial needs work. In the right conditions, it works great but other times, when a subject is out of focus, for instance, it will result in a nice face with a blurry body which quite frankly ...

    I corrected my post above which should clarify. I use DXO PL6 for RAW and Topaz for JPEGs.
  • Replied in Topaz Photo AI
    I made a mistake which I corrected above. I bought Topaz for fixing old JPEGs.

    The same thing is possible with Photo AI. I do not find that to be true. In Photo AI there's a strength slider that goes from no noise reduction when set to zero to a lot when set to the maximum ...
  • The IQ and zoom in the RX10 M3 and M4 are the same. The RX10 M5 doesn't exist yet. Now if you meant the RX100 M3, M4, and M5 then all 3 have the same zoom and IQ.

    Yes, I see it now. Facial AI needs some work. Sometimes it will enhance the face while leaving the rest out of focus which looks ridiculous.

    Correct but the hair wasn't smoothed away. It was left exactly as in the original with no change. That is the flaw with facial AI. Sometimes it's best to turn off facial when it does things like this.
  • The program uses AI to recognize faces and clean them up.
  • Created discussion thread Topaz Photo AI
    I've been experimenting with Topaz Photo AI for a few days and find it's very good at cleaning up old noisy JPEGs and scanned slides and negatives. Here are a few examples before and after. Before; ...

  • Very often Topaz can make a JPEG look better.
  • Do you realize how few people using dedicated cameras actually carry all that with them? Most carry a camera with a single zoom lens attached which is not a hassle at all if a high IQ is the goal. ...
  • Considering it's cropped down to 6mp the ducks must have been very small in the original image. Taking that into consideration the photo looks good to me. Here's the photo enhanced by Topaz Photo AI.
  • I would love it if a smartphone was better at photography so no, I have no reason to not like a smartphone camera. My opinion is no more biased than yours. I am not defensive about it because the ...
  • The way phones increase dynamic range is by taking multiple shots and combining them together. The results look artificial and I don't like them. I disagree for the same reasons above. Here's a low ...
  • Yes but that doesn't matter because shooting night shots make up less than 1% of my photography. I would never consider the ability to shoot night shots the reason to use a smartphone camera ...

    But not original.

    No. There are billions of people taking photos every day so the chance of taking a type of photo that hasn't been done many times before is nearly zero.
  • The biggest problem is the highly subjective nature of discussing actual photos. This tends to result in a lot of disagreement that goes nowhere.
