Lightroom 3 “like switching to a new camera,” says DPReview
The difference between high ISO images converted using the new 2010 process compared to the older 2003 algorithm is remarkable, both in terms of detail and noise reduction. It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that at high ISO settings, switching to the new RAW processing engine is like switching to a new camera.
Elsewhere, Bright Hub gives the software a perfect 5 out of 5 “Excellent” rating and concludes, “This product stands head and shoulders above the competition in an increasingly crowded sector.”
Excellent; thanks, guys.
In other news, the LR/Enfuse multi-exposure blending plug-in has been revved to version 4. The concept is similar to HDR imaging, but the plug-in authors say their approach produces more natural-looking images.
