A mixed camera bag, granted.
I keep hearing about Phase 1 being a better RAW converter than Lr CC. PhotoMechanic, a better PP software.
Not being a Tech Wizard (I dropped out of Hogwarts in the first year) I was wondering what, in your opinion, is the best RAW converter?
After conversion, I would be keen to save as a dng, or similar so that, ideally, I can load into Lr CC. I can operate Lr after owning it for a while, and trust me, it took / is still taking a while.
Now, that might have some tech' giants reaching for their key pads; this is to be expected.
All that I am looking for is a possible "better" way of working in the RAW conversion. Nikon and Sony have their own RAW files, Leica shoot dng by default.
If, after hours of picture taking, I am not maximising my images or work flow? I would be keen to hear from people as it might be that Lr CC gives me everything I need in one package (which is the Adobe corporate supposition) then I can cease wondering, however, I have read enough photographers who dismiss Lr in favour of the likes of PhotoMechanic and other RAW converters, I wonder: "What am I missing which I need to embrace?".
thanks in advance.
