    Default DXO Tryout

    I'm going down with cabin fever. The E-M1 is AWOL at Olympus because the body rubber peeled off, and C-AF no longer works. All approved under extended warranty, but over a month now and the parts MAY be here from Japan and installed by Xmas! Xmas is our holiday season........
    Anyway, I played with the Panny G5 my wife uses, in the garden with the Oly 40-150 pro fitted. It worked nicely, an under rated camera I think and lens focus was fine. Only problem is, it can barely focus 4/3 lenses, and not at all with an EC14.
    Anyway, using DXO Optix Pro Elite, and for the first time playing with Prime noise reduction and Lens Softness (instead of USM sharpening), I thought the result was very nice after comparing with LR. The Prime setting must be doing a heap of work because the file takes ages to save, but worth it for one-offs.
    Cheers,
    Don

    Looks good Don.
    After looking at the specs and reviews for the DXO 3 program Pro Elite suite, I think I'm going to take the plunge. Seems like a good deal @ 50% off. I just wonder if they are getting ready for an upgrade since it was released a year ago, and that's why the big discount!?
    Cheers,
    David

    Hi David. There have been regular updates but I don't know if anything is coming soon.
    It's quite likely the state of the industry at this time, too much product of all sections of photographic supply for a dwindling or slower growth market.

    I got the DXO suite of Optics Pro, Viewpoint, and Filmpack two years ago and so far all my updates to these three have all been free of cost.
