I played around with the trial version of Photo Ninja for some days and in general I am very happy with what I see. The results are positively different from what other raw converters could do for me until now. The highlight-color recovery, though, looks pretty underwhelming on my D800E files (compared to RPP, that is). Will I buy a licence for PN? Probably yes, soon. It will give me the feeling of supporting a sympathetic start-up business and at the same time being entitled (as a stake holder) to
write them long mails with complaints
give them feedback on possible improvements.
