Sony A99 greencast in the shadows is fixed so I’m happy

I like my DXO 8 even more now…no need for CC.

But mmmhh…the box cover looks outdated with this “unbranded” “pro” camera on it 😉

Please DXO: do an update and get a cool box cover now!


Well if DXO supports your camera. Then you still need editing software. (Yes, Gimp and Paint.net are freeware places to start, but neither is great.)


It’s a good choice for CS7 cloud alternative 🙂

No it’s not. It’s an alternative to Lightroom (and not a great one at that) not CS7.


And still no Samsung NX cameras.


And still nobody cares. 🙂



That’s right, because now new NX cameras ship with Lightroom.

The point is that DXO is lazy, they’ve also decided to ignore Fuji XTrans filtered raws.

The reason to care about Samsung NX cameras, is given the lens quality they’re a serious alternative to Sony’s Nex system, better menus too.

A reason DXO should make an effort, is that DXO gets a bad reputation for support and then people ignore the software–it took several years before DXO bothered with raws from Leica Ms.

Aftershot, and as best as I know CaptureOne, don’t ignore Samsung and Leica, yes I know Aftershot doesn’t do Fuji XTrans raws yet.

Aftershot hasn’t been properly updated in a very long while. They don’t support new-ish cameras like the Canon 6D. Just head on over to the Corel forums to see loads of people whining about it. DXO is lightyears ahead of Aftershot when it comes to supporting current cameras.
