OK, clear, thanks.

Agreed, the way OoF areas are noise reduced in your sample shows the appearance of some banding. It would be interesting to see how they look in low ISO images of the same scene shot on tripod, but I know you don't have those. :)

In some areas, the "banding" seems to correspond to the transition line between lit areas and shadows, but that is probably not the only problem indeed.

Cheers,
Bernard

Grain shows more profound on screens than in print. For that i do not mind some grain.
I always print everything 150dpi-124cm wide - to see what happens
Personally i do not like at all the way noise reduction programs in general handle the image; smearing all the details.
But i do think the d810 high iso files does need chromatic noise reduction.

DxO + film pack may have become my favourite B&W conversion application recently.

A couple of examples shot with a D750 + 85mm f1.4 AF-S.

Those are two rather beautiful images Bernard! Fantastic work! (The blown highlight on her left wrist in the first is a little distracting, however.)

Having experimented, I find myself turning to DxO 10 for problematic files, such as from my 5D days, whose high ISO performance by today's standards is poor. This CR2 from 2007 was badly under-exposed. In 100% view the girl's hair is a mushy mess but that's a limitation of the data in the CR2, not the processor.



Another use for I find for DXO 10 is where clear view can do a good job nice and quickly.  As an aside, I'm finding that in the trip back to LR, the color rendering in LR is considerably more subdued.

Meanwhile I still use DPP and LR for plenty of images too. I still maintain nothing touches DPP when it comes to certain lenses like the EF16-35 f/2.8L. And I also still make a lot of use of Topaz, Nik and Piccure+ plugins too.

Thank you Damon, it is easy with a cute model! ;)

Nice image!

Yes, same here. It works very well with files of the RX100 as well for instance.

Bernard

Jack:  As with the other respondents to your query,  I use Lightroom for my raw conversions, no matter which of my cameras I'm using.  However, to get around the DxO inability to convert my GXR DNG files, I will occasionally convert the DNG file to tiff (either in Lightroom or Photoshop) and then send it to DxO for processing when I still want to utilize some of the advantages DxO offers.

Hello,

I am new on this forum. Sorry for my english (I am french)

For all of you frustrated to not be able to use DxO with your Ricoh GXR, I have used free DxO 8 to convert GXR DNG.
I have done the test with my A16 24-85 and A12 28 modules by I think it should work with all others modules.

Here is the procedure :

- download ExifTool http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

- modify the exifs of your DNG files to make DxO think it can convert it (DxO can convert Ricoh GR)
use the command : exiftool.exe *.DNG -Make="PENTAX RICOH IMAGING" -Model="GR" to modify all the DNG in the directory.
ExifTool make a copy of the original file with the extension _original.

- you can use DxO with the new DNGs ! do not use optical correction (distorsion ...)

Totoche:  Your remedy sounds fascinating.  However, even though I am mildly conversant with the workings of exiftool, I am unable to get your solution to work.  Per your instructions, I have downloaded and installed the latest version of exiftool (even though I had an earlier version already on my hard drive), and installed it in my "pictures" directory (where all my DNG files reside).  But when running the command line it comes up claiming not to find a qualified file.  I hope to use your method I don't have to run the tool picture by picture.  Can you please give me more detailed instructions?  You may send me a personal message, so we don't unnecessarily burden this thread with too esoteric information.  Thanks, Jim

Did you download this http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/exiftool-9.75.zip ?

Rename the exe to exiftool.exe, normally it should work.

(sorry but time to go to bed in France now  :) )

try this command instead :

exiftool.exe -ext dng . -Make="PENTAX RICOH IMAGING" -Model="GR"

Your mythical perception that DNG is an accepted standard is what has clouded your mind to think others who do not use DNG files are inferior or deranged. Have a nice day.
Congratulations on missing the point and then completely misrepresenting what I wrote and think.

I realy don't understand this jjj, he is spending so much time writing about something what he dont like.
What you like jjj? taking pictures when you are not busy troling in the forum? "testing" software in the free download period? Maybe something else?

I was reading this to find out something more about DxO, but what I get its only your shit.
So, do you think people are only allowed to post nice things and if they are critical of a flawed product, then they are a troll? Which apparently then means you can be abusive towards them. You seem like a lovely addition to the Forum.  :-\
I simply tried the software again as a new version was out to see if I could add it to my toolset, disappointingly I found it still lacking in many areas and said what I thought. Others [fanbois] got upset that I dared to point out flaws and came out with all sorts of nonsense and misreading of posts to justify DxO, I simply replied.

As to what I do, I'm a professional photographer and occasionally when I have some free time I pop in here. So what do you do when you aren't being rude to others?
