I would not process D810 raws without PhaseOne CaptureOne (Ver. 8).  For me, there is just no contest with the other converters.....tried Adobe and was disappointed with the color rendition.

C1 Pro 8 and ACR. I like the colors in C1 Pro 8 better. Highlight and shadow recovery better in ACR. I'm no pro, so take with a grain of salt.

Thanks everyone. I used to get emails with C1 discounted offers all the time. I haven't gotten one in a while.

ACR most of the time. Iridient when the image is really important.

Always the latest version of Lightroom.

Absolutely superb programme that acts as the hub for all my photo-processing.

Can't compare it to any of the others mentioned above as I have never felt any need to try any of them.

Main selling point (maybe that should be "retaining point") for me is that LR is lightning-fast processing the 45Mb Raw files from my D810 (and the D800 and D800E), even with a relatively modest i7 PC with only 16Gb RAM.

Lightroom 5.7 ( which uses the current version of Adobe Camera Raw). I have CaptureOne Pro 8 just been too busy to learn it.

Thanks everyone.  I really like ACR.  I will have to update my OS on a couple of computers before I get LR5.  I have Final Cut Pro 7 on a couple of machines and use it a lot.  I hate FCP X.  I've tried to like it.  Anyway, I don't want to screw up my ability to use FCP 7.  I may have to buy a different computer for LR5.  In the mean time I may just shoot TIFFs until I can update everything.  Thanks again.

Not a fan of ACR.

For me, using the camera maker's RAW converter works much better as with Nikon's Capture NX-2 since it also reads the camera menu settings and controls that the 3rd party RAW converters do not.  Stuff like ADR for example, noise, and even moire are better handled since they know the processing going on where others take a "Punt approach" or "Looks good enough."

I find colour very similar from NX-D to ACR ( if you compare the camera profiles) NX-2 is not working on d810's RAW alas
NX-D has a horrible workflow and the detail sharpness is lacking -( also with C1)

so for me it is ACR

I do also own for some reason a LR 5.7 license, but I really can't find anything besides DAM that it does better than C1 Pro 8.

I get more pleasing colors, a more "natural"/more detailed demoisaicing (especially on the files of AA filter less bodies such as the D810), more natural/pin pointed highlight recovery/shadow brightening,... You don't get any of the fake/cheap HDR look often seen in landscape shots.

GPU acceleration for image output is still buggy as of C1 Pro 8.1, but the level of performance with a Mac Pro 2013 with D700 GPU is also impressive.

It really feels like the Phase One team did pay special attentiom to the D810.







Cheers,
Bernard

ACR with latest upgrade. Works just fine. I've tried several different versions of C1, but never worked for me - probably the way my brain is wired after years and years of Adobe.

Hello Bernard,
Maybe you ( or anybody else...) could post some perfect OTUS-D810-f5.6 Raw file for everybody to convert with their favourite way so this discussion gets some bones...?
(and make this forum even more interesting)

Pieter Kers
