Dxo upgrade

Just downloaded the new Dxo optics pro 11 elite update.(I have the 10 elite).
Was it worth the 55.00 ? Most definitely, I revisited my Roman images and the extra detail I could tease out was substantial, using the lighting sliders I got more high light detail and far more shadow / mid tone detail. Even the low noise levels were improved. It rendered the images just as I remembered them for colour /contrast etc., all in all, well worth the update.

Re: Dxo upgrade

Yes, I only found out because I went to Dxo mark to check the rating for a lens, I had only checked the 10 for updates the day before, and it said I was up to date. I feel the 11 is so much better they are treating it as a new release rather than an update, this may be why it has a cost where updates don't.

Re: Dxo upgrade

Charles, When I checked for updates I was told I was up to date. So went to DXO Site and the New Elite 11 was for sale at 159 reduced to 119 so how did you buy at 55? Just half the price.
Colin.

Re: Dxo upgrade

I already had 10 elite and the 11 was listed as an upgrade on Dxo mark just go to your browser and put in Dxo mark. Did you check on your account page or just the "open "site?
As I said it is well worth the extra as it has loads of new features.

Re: Dxo upgrade

Charles, I did as you suggested went into my a/c and the upgrade was there for the 55 so I am now the proud owner. I wonder why they kept this secret ? I would never have known about it only for your post and if I had wanted it would have to have paid 119. huge difference So thanks again for that. Going to have a play with it now.
Colin.

Re: Dxo upgrade

Charles, Just had a quick play with the supplied demo images. I am really amazed at the improvements and additions. The Clarity slider is so much improved and does not go over the top. So much faster and the one I am sure you will use is the spot weighted tool where you select the face of a person and it corrects the exposure perfectly and balances the rest of the image to match, will suit your museum characters.
I am well pleased with the purchase and would recommend it highly to anyone wanting a RAW converter.
Colin.

Re: Dxo upgrade

Well done Colin, it is a great improvement in so many ways, I would suggest it is now the best RAW converter on the market.
I can't work out why they have not made a big thing about it either, still you have got it now so all's OK.

Re: Dxo upgrade

Charles, I have been doing some more experimenting on my own images already processed on the DXO 10 and there is definitely a big improvement and so much faster on the new version. I think it would definitely now beat Lightroom. I agree it would probably be the best on the market RAW converter.
I will try and post a before and after image later.
Colin.
