  • Here is the comparison. First image is a resize from Lightroom using Gigapixel AI at 1.7x using the Low Res Model. No other adjustments have been made. And here is the Digital TC at 2.0x. No ...
  • This is correct.  I was just about to reply to this thread and relate the same type of information, and then I saw your reply.  Saved me the effort. But one thing to add to this is when we consider ...
  • Replied in How TC's work
    Actually, the TC spreads out the light so that the sensor only sees the central part of the image.  The effect is that the image will look magnified.  And the light density goes down due to the ...
  • I haven't reached a conclusion on this yet.  Have to be satisfied with JPEG only to use 2x DTC vs continuing with 16 bit results when using the TCON-17x. The distance was 45-50 feet to the top of ...
  • I did do something wrong. Now one difference is the ON1 Resize does not take care of noise and it has to be treated separately, whereas Gigapixel AI has a noise slider to deal with the noise. In ...
  • I used standard for this one.  I intend to run it again with several more modes.
  • Here is an example of an extreme crop just to push Gigapixel AI and ON1 Resize just to see which one can do their best on an impossible task.  Camera was an EM1 and the lens was an old Asahi ...
  • I search though some old images to find something with text to compare text processing from Gigapixel AI at 2x vs ON1 RAW Resize 2023 at 2x. The sign was in one corner of the image and was cropped ...
  • I have noticed this problem with lettering too.  I suspect that the AI perhaps is not sufficiently trained on letterimg. I need to do some experimenting with ON1 RAW Resize 2023, and see if it can ...
  • Look at my response a couple hours earlier than yours and I showed how to get the whole path to the executable.  This should be what you need.
  • No, this doesn't work with Affinity 2, but it does work with Affinity 1. Refer back to the picture aanogueira gave us. Note where his cursor arrow is pointing. Right click and choose "Open File ...
  • OK, Here we go. All shots at f/9. Here is a shot taken in RAW and converted to JPEG in LR with default settings And a shot using the 2x DTC. SOOC with no adjustments. And this time the RAW ...
  • I will try this shortly.  The sun is out today here in California and I will give it a try.
  • Here is something else to be aware of.  This time I used Gigapixel AI at 1x.  In PhotoAI, this is just called "Enhance" This is a 200% crop showing how using GPAI at 1x actually improves the image ...
  • I also have the Minolta ACT100 which is a 1.5x frontend TC. I find it less sharp than the TCON-17x. These frontend TC's have several strikes against them: 1. They are big and heavy 2. The camera ...
  • Based on your comment about comparing results on you small laptop, I decided to make it easier to compare results. The image on the left is the original shot with no TC and increased to approx ...
  • Why export as JPG here.  Gigapixel works much better with DNG or TIF files. Same comment here.  Why are you using JPG at this step? Make conversion to JPEG the very last step.
  • I just read Phocal's response and I very much agree. I am going to supply what has been asked for but hasn't been provided. First of all, I do not have a TC for my Olympus cameras. And probably ...
  • Replied in Two options:
    I have the Raynox 150.  And I don't like the experience when I try to use it on lenses with a large diameter.  Also have the Canon 500D in 77mm (it was offered in 4 or 5 different sizes) and it ...
  • I have had a good experience with these Mcoplus extension tubes that I got on Amazon for about $25. The coupling snaps in place perfectly, and is made of metal. Haven't had any problem with the ...
