  1. We are currently conducting a large customer survey on the topic of connectivity! All camera manufacturers (including Leica) seem to agree that these functions are one of the most important future topics for cameras. We now want to know… If you agree How intensively you already use these functions and what exactly is important to you Your answers will help giving camera manufacturers clear guidance on what is important to you and what features should be implemented in new cameras. The survey has only 10 questions, your answers should take no more than 5 minutes. » Take the survey Many thanks for your support!

  3. French software house DxO introduces a new version of DxO PureRAW. The main changes are support for Fujifilm cameras with X-Trans sensor and options to integrate the power of DxO PureRAW into your workflow. DxO PureRAW 2.0 focuses on the first and most important steps of RAW conversion: Denoising De-mosaicing Optical corrections and Sharpening For further processing PureRAW passes the file as DNG to the RAW converter of your choice - e.g. Lightroom, alternatively as a developed JPEG. One of the innovations concerns this workflow: RAW files can be developed in the background directly from Lightroom or from Finder/Explorer via context menu. The results are then available in the form of DNGs for further processing in the file system or directly in Lightroom. RAW conversion can be triggered directly from the Windows File Explorer and macOS Finder, the user simply selects which algorithm should be applied and whether the output should be saved as JPG or DNG. The integration in Adobe Lightroom is similar: With one click, one or more files can be converted into pre-processed DNGs, which are available directly in the Lightroom library. The second major difference from the previous version is good news for all owners of Fujifilm cameras with X-Trans sensor: DxO PureRAW 2.0 now supports all RAW files from Fujifilm X-Trans cameras - not just current models, but for a total of 28 models all the way back to the Fujifilm X-Pro1, which was introduced 10 years ago. Other changes include processing speed and support for HiDPI displays. In addition to the 28 Fujifilm cameras already mentioned, several cameras from other manufacturers have also been added, including… Nikon Z9 Canon EOS R3 Sony A7 IV Leica M10R and Leica SL2. DxO PureRAW 2.0 is now available for download from the DxO Shop. The full version costs 129 €, and the upgrade €79. Here is a screenshot comparing the results of Lightroom to DxO PureRAW: DxO PureRAW 2: Versatility, speed, and support for Fujifilm X-Trans cameras A revolution for RAW files, DxO PureRAW 2 now allows users to pre-process images without leaving Lightroom and offers significant speed improvements. Support arrives for X-Trans cameras, offering Fujifilm photographers excellent image quality, and improved OS integration brings access via context menus. Awarded the EISA Best Advanced Photo Software 2021 upon its release, DxO PureRAW set a new standard in RAW conversion through its pioneering use of artificial intelligence, establishing superior image quality at the beginning of the editing process — all without disrupting photographers’ existing workflows. DxO PureRAW 2 builds on this success, offering new features and greater efficiency. New integrations offer a smoother workflow DxO PureRAW 2 acquires two new integrations to make the workflow even smoother. In Lightroom Classic, users can right-click on a number of RAW files and have DxO PureRAW 2 process the images, creating newly enhanced Linear DNG files back into the same folder, without having to step outside of the application. Similar functionality is now integrated into Windows File Explorer and macOS Finder: simply right-click files and choose from the context menu to start the process. Support for Fujifilm X-Trans cameras DxO PureRAW 2 now supports RAW files from X-Trans sensors, bringing the significant benefits of DeepPRIME to Fujifilm XT photographers. Expect clean images, free of noise and artifacts, with deep, vibrant colors even at high ISO levels. Faster and more efficient DxO DeepPRIME receives a significant upgrade in speed. Not only more responsive, processing and export times have been improved — up to four times faster on Apple Silicon machines and up to 1.5 times faster on the latest Windows computers. Support for HiDPI displays and a host of new camera/lens combinations HiDPI displays are now supported, offering greater comfort to photographers on Windows machines. Updates to DxO’s Optics Modules brings the total number of supported camera and lens combinations to more than 70,000. Support for even more equipment DxO PureRAW 2 supports 40 new cameras: Canon EOS R3 (Canon RF) - Bayer Sensor DJI Mavic 3 / Mavic 3 Cine (Drone) - Bayer Sensor Fuji GFX 50S II (Fuji GFX) - Bayer Sensor Fuji X100F (Compact) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X100S (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X100T (Compact) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X100V (Compact) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X20 (Compact) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X30 (Compact) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X70 (Compact) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-E1 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-E2 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-E2S (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-E3 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-E4 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji XF10 (Compact) - Bayer Sensor Fuji X-H1 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-M1 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-Pro1 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-Pro2 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-Pro3 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-S10 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T1 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T10 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T2 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T20 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T3 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T30 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T30 II (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Fuji X-T4 (Fuji X) - X-Trans Sensor Leica M10-R (Leica M) - Bayer Sensor Leica SL2 (L-mount) - Bayer Sensor Leica SL2-S (L-mount) - Bayer Sensor Nikon Z9 (Nikon Z) - Bayer Sensor Ricoh GRIIIx (Compact) - Bayer Sensor Sigma Fp-L (L-mount) - Bayer Sensor Sony A7 IV (Sony FE) - Bayer Sensor Sony A7R IIIA (Sony FE) - Bayer Sensor Sony A7R IVA (Sony FE) - Bayer Sensor Sony FX3 (Sony FE) - Bayer Sensor About DxO PureRAW 2 DxO PureRAW uses convolutional neural networks to perform the demosaicing and denoising processes of RAW image conversion simultaneously. Having been trained using millions of example images, the network is able to produce results that far exceed those made by human-designed algorithms, giving users Linear DNG files that have all of the flexibility of the original RAW file but with the best possible image quality in terms of color, noise, and fine detail. In addition, DxO PureRAW uses DxO’s highly regarded Optics Modules, a database of more than 70,000 lens and camera body combinations that provide the highest levels of lens sharpness, corrections to geometric distortions, vignetting, and aberrations. Price and availability DxO PureRAW (Windows and macOS) is now available for download on the DxO website (https://shop.dxo.com/) at the following price DxO PureRAW 2 129 € DXO PureRAW 2 Upgrade 79 €
  4. Topazlabs has introduced a new version of Gigapixel AI, an image editing tool to upscale images - without losing quality. The new version 3.8 is available for the reduced price of $79.99 (instead of $99.99) until February 18, and with the savings code FORUM it's even only $67.99 (22% savings). You can save even more with the Image Quality Bundle, which includes Gigapixel AI as well as tools for reducing noise (DeNoise AI) and sharpening (Sharpen AI) images. Instead of being around $260, it's available for $160. With our savings code FORUM the price is reduced by another 15% to $136 (approx. 48% savings) New Features in Gigapixel AI v5.8 Improved face refinement pipeline Gigapixel AI will now do a much better job detecting human faces more often and delivering more realistic results. Tiny background faces especially should see a noticeable improvement in quality. Significant image quality improvements with Windows GPU You’ll notice much better image quality across all models in Gigapixel AI when using GPU-powered Windows machines. Reduced memory usage We’ve streamlined how we cache and utilize image data through the entire editing pipeline, resulting in less memory usage and faster importing and exporting of image files. Lots of usability improvements and bug fixes We’ve improved the post-processing resize algorithm, optimized how we compress JPG, PNG, and TIFF files when exporting, and squashed a bunch of annoying bugs. » More information and sample images on the Topazlabs website
  5. Dear Forum Members and Readers, I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Good Rest and a Happy New Year! Enjoy the time with your loved ones, feast and drink (in moderation) and above all: Stay healthy! Greetings from Andreas & the Moderator Team
  6. Hallo und willkommen, du bist hier im internationalen – englischsprachigen – Fuji X Forum gelandet. Mehr deutschsprachige Antworten bekommst du hier: https://www.fuji-x-forum.de Zu deiner Frage: Das lässt sich aus mehreren Gründen nicht so einfach beantworten. Es fehlen technische Infos Welche Kamera benutzt du? Was für eine Blitzanlage nutzt du? Wie sind Kamera und Blitzanlage gekoppelt? Du kennst offensichtlich Kamera noch nicht so gut Studiofotografie mit einer Blitzanlage ist kein Hexenwerk, aber man muss schon die Grundlagen verstanden haben, wie Blende, ISO, Belichtungszeit (eher wenig), Blitzleistung, Abstände etc. miteinander zusammen hängen. Zwei konkrete Tipps: Tipp 1: Try & Error Bau eine Lichtsituation auf Mach so lange Testaufnahmen, bis die Belichtung stimmt: Blitzleistung runter regeln so weit es geht Blende schließen ISO reduzieren Tipp 2: Lieber Dauerlicht nutzen Gruß Andreas
