    Dan, like you, I'm not a Lightroom user. I tried DxO for a few years (with m4/3) and was mostly satisfied with it, but eventually switched to Capture 1 due to the fact that DxO did not handle Fuji X files at the time I switched to Fuji equipment. Recently,…

    Hello, again!!! I have watched your argumentation and I've found it flawless. I use for noise reduction the RawTherapee free software which deliver super results. I have used early versions of Lightroom which I think were absolutely awful... For the my little Panasonic GX800 I use the Panasonic SilkyPix software.…

  • Noise Reduction Software Comparison

    In the last year or so, we’ve seen some incredible progress in almost all software noise-reduction tools. That being the case, I thought it might be a good time for a noise reduction software comparison. For several years, my favorite RAW converter has been DxO PhotoLab. But most others, including…

    Lumix G9ll

    The Lumix G9ll Finally Announced Finally! Panasonic is getting serious about a quality autofocus camera in the world of Micro Four Thirds cameras.
