  • I'm very happy with the VP2768. Needed almost no color/grayscale calibration - it's accurate out-of-the-box. Had a bit of light bleed at the edges, which I resolved in rather primitive fashion: ...

  • Hi. It's not the "Nikon Collection" - but rather, the "Nik Collection." Here are some links that explain what has happened and is happening with it: https://petapixel.com/2018/06/06/the-nik-collect ...
  • And the GH5, also.
  • Tech support: dxo.com -> Help Center (top menu) -> Product Support -> Submit Ticket The "Feedback" link at the bottom of the site page also goes here, with the option for Feedback (different from ...
  • I take this to mean that when you turn on Horizon correction for auto-correcting, the result isn't properly aligned? In my experience, the software guesses right much of the time, but not every ...
  • Something bringing the whole computer to a halt will probably take a lot of work to solve. It's a very different problem from a single application crashing. This should really be handled in the PC ...
  • AFAIK DxO hasn't announced any plans to integrate Nik with PhotoLab, apart from U-Point tech. Makes sense to me, since PL already has great NR and other processing. My guess is that it remains a ...
  • IMO, probably not DxO's fault. Although your system's been stable, something stressed it out this time, which is why rebooting and retrying didn't replicate the problem. I'm very happy with the new ...
  • Anti-malware problem? e.g., I had to restart Malwarebytes yesterday for slowing a software installation, among other things, to a ridiculous crawl.
  • Besides Capture One, I suggest looking at DxO PhotoLab for RAW processing. Word is that the latest update (version 1.2) will be released June 6 and includes some worthwhile improvements.
  • Replied in Very unusual
    It depends on how you define the problem. That the backfocusing happens with particular lenses is a fact. How much is more user-dependent. In relatively low light and at certain distances, I've ...
  • Replied in Very unusual
    I don't understand the confusion. Isn't it plain that this isn't a problem happening for everyone with every lens, but that it's specific to certain lenses and conditions with Olympus CDAF? It ...
  • I suggest that you forget the DxO forum. DxO Labs doesn't have the resources to give questions posted there much attention. If you want customer technical support, the proper route is to submit a ...
  • Very interesting. I hope you will submit a support request to DxO to have this analyzed. They will want to know (as will people on this forum) what settings you are using, camera, etc. and will ...
  • I use a Dell tower PC that needed a new power supply and video card in order to display >1080p. I imagine laptops are similarly designed to spec in order to keep costs low. Personally, for a screen ...
  • Just to clarify: Photomatix works directly with many RAW file formats. That is not the problem. The problem is that there are certain limitations. Reading the FAQ on the Photomatix web site could ...
  • +1. I've had a hard time getting good results from Photomatix with RAW files. I always feed it 16-bit TIFFs from my favorite RAW developer.
  • You might want to try different AF settings in low light (e.g., a larger AF box, turning face priority on/off...) to see if things improve at all. Also try varying other settings like exposure, ...
  • I have had this problem, too, with an E-PL5, E-M10, and E-M5 II and two lenses in particular: the 25mm f/1.4 (1 copy) and 75-300 II (3 copies). Yes, the latter is an Olympus lens. I didn't see ...
