BUYER BEWARE!!! I purchased DxO PhotoLab 2 along with DxO Nik Collection version 1 just three months ago. DxO just updated the Nik Collection to version 2 and will not provide an update for existing owners of the Nik Collection unless PhotoLab 2 is purchased all over again (ie forcing existing PhotoLab 2 owners to buy two copies of the same software) in order to just update their copy of the Nik Collection from version 1 to version 2. Shame on you DxO, I will never purchase anything from your company again.

I am quite upset with this company and its product. I bought PL version 1 to process my Oly and Leica T files. It worked very well. It became an essential part of my workflow. I sold the T and bought a Leica CL. While the CL's files are DNGs, PL I and II fails to recognize them. It is the ONLY raw processor I have (and I have many) that does not "see" those files. I wrote to the company on various occasions over the last year. They have, in essence, blown me off. I loved the program's "PRIME" noise reduction feature, among other things, and have been unable to use it for my CL files. I will NEVER purchase another one of their products. The company is unresponsive and simply doesn't care about the needs of its customers. I really tried hard to reason with the; all to no avail. Purchase at your own risk. And, whatever you do, make absolutely sure that your camera is supported, especially if it creates DNGs. I've tried all kinds of workarounds. All failed. I'm a pro fotog, and I can't tell you how frustrating this has been. They deserve to fail.

sorry to hear it doesn't support your Leica CL raw files, DxO hasn't supported the Monochrom since it's inception nor do they plan on supporting it. And no Andrew they don't listen to requests, they are very arrogant when you talk to them

DxO PhotoLab works wonders on my Olympus .ORF files. Compared with Lightroom images are sharper, chromatic aberration is reduced and I can usually recover some extra pixels on the edges of the image. And the PRIME noise reduction is phenomenal. I used to limit my cameras to ISO 3200, but now I'll go to 6400 or even higher if I need to because PRIME is so good. I still use Lightroom as my main RAW converter, and for managing my catalogue of images, but I turn to PhotoLab once the going gets tough.

My main RAW converter. I love that it doesn't require a database and you can just point it to a folder to start working away. The lens and camera profiles are very good, and it's proprietary technologies are awesome.

I'm getting VERY annoyed that I come here to MacUpdate and the Site takes control of my Browser and opens-up these Windows that I don't care about. I can only assume your company pays MacUpdate to have them do this.

How is this any better than Capture One Pro (8.1.1) by Phase One? I have never experienced any raw converter that is remotely as good as what Phase One has done with Capture One in terms of noise reduction, sharpening and such.

Just stick with what works best for you. Don't change your workflow just because something looks better.. The only way you can ever know is to just try the demo. Photos are a personal thing and if COP works for you stay with it.

No support for the most popular and pervasive mirrorless camera system on the planet. Intentional and willful ignorance of Fuji X-Trans is a great way to avoid having me as a customer, and at these prices I'm MUCH better off with competing software.

Just because it doesn't support fuji's xtrans, giving it 2 stars is unfair. Fuji changed the color array pattern and applied noise reduction in raw file. This makes it more difficult for software company to support them. Even Fuji itself couldn't provide a proper raw editor for their customer.

You can stop blasting this software. Like 25thnan stated even Fuji themselves do no have a raw editor for their own x-trans. If you went to the DxO's site you would have seen this quip about why they will not support x-trans at the moment.

So do use another competing software. Move on. nothing more to see here. . .

Adobe does it fine. Fuji's relationship with SilkyPix has allowed them to do it fine. Even Apple does it fine. DxO is just being lazy and making a product that ignores an entire sensor, so there is nothing wrong with my rating. It does nothing for most of the RAW files I work with and can work only with those using same sensor that everyone else buys from Sony so don't sweat my two stars feel free to give your own rating. There are open source applications that can work with X-Trans files better than this $129 gougefest so it's a poor investment. I'm not adverse to software that costs more than $100, but I wouldn't light a benjamin on fire just to watch it burn.

You weren't noticing anything, you're an apologist and that's fine; but you're still completely wrong about everything you said.

I do use another application. I'd use this one but it's a 2-star failure for my workflow. Feel free to continue using this instead of something else if you don't know any better. Won't hurt my feelings.

The publisher can explain why they elect to support something, but I'm perfectly capable of leaving a low review because of it. No other application ignores the entire X-series like this and in spite of the preset system sucking in DXO I wouldn't mind being able to have it available as an option if Lightroom 6 doesn't address my needs. You don't need to sit around and whine about me pointing it out, Wethead.
