Despite a non-Mac standard GUI, the results of super resolution are remarkable.

Somehow 3.013 crashes on Mavericks.

Thanks for mentioning version 3.013, Grandlepton! It led us to the update--and to a version with a quick fix for OS X 10.9 you may want to try.

Very good app, on the paper, but if you don't have your camera profile, it's useless. When i tried it with my Nikon D2X it got perfect results, now it's impossible to get something good with my Nikon D3X. I don't understand those app like DXO which only updates their app with the profiles of newcoming cameras and forget the 3years old ones.

Do non-SLR cameras (I have a Canon PowerShot SX120IS) automatically take a short burst of shots at bracketed exposures with one click of the button? If so, this software might be useful for, among other things, handling high contrast situations.

If not, I'd expect the images to vary too much.

Very good program with reach capabilities, but don't require product support. I didn't get any response for my two mails (I asked how I can upload test shots to developer server for creating a profile for Pentax K200d).

Really good stuff. So many useful tools. Among them truly amazing resolution gain, HDR and, my favorite, moving object removal.

The documentation is only online, which bugs me for some reason.

Short: very interesting and useful software for anyone who shoots anything more than "i was here" photos.

I am not a "pro" phottographer, but I have DSLR (Olympus E500) and sometimes take "a kind of professional" shots - in RAW format, using exposure bracketing, etc. So I tried this program as it offers something new to image processing.

I used demo version. As far as I understand, it works absolutely like the full version, just places a watermark in the images.

The most interesting thing which I met in no other software is "super-resolution". You take several photos and the program makes one image with higher resolution. To be honest, I did not believe that anything can increase the resolution higher than the camera sensor provides... but in my tests the resulting images certainly contained more details.

I also tried the HDR feature, but cannot tell exactly how good or how bad it this program in HDR - as I am not very experienced in this area. I can say only that it matches the images very well, even those taken without a tripod.

I did not try focus stacking, as I do not take macro photos and even do not have a lens that would allows this.

I have not decided yet does this software worth its price for me now, as I am not so keen in photography. But shall I devote to photography, I'd certainly like to use this program.

Wish list:
speed!
batch mode
