    Hello Max,

    for me the DPP picture looks a little bit brighter. Maybe you can play a little bit with the exposure and contrast in C1 to get more details.

    Gruss Leif

    As far as I can see there is some difference, but have a play with DSLR noise suppression and Banding suppression as well.
    What I would worry about more is the slight blue tint of the DPP image.

    I spend a huge (too much) amount of time comparing DPP, PSCS and C1. One factor that makes it almost impossible to compare several images is that it is nearly impossible to get the same image processed by all three applications to look exactly the same. Therefore it really depends on the individual image colors and light source.

    As an example I compared a set of 27 basketball pictures; On my calibrated desktop monitor the C1 versions looked the best with DPP and CS following in that order. On my almost-calibrated laptop the DPP versions look better than those developed by C1. Because of the difficult lighting situation that gyms present CS was the worst of all.

    Each application has its advantages depending on the subject and lighting in my shots.

    I agree with fargo but with the reservation that skintone is the hardest but also the most sensitive from a prespective point of view, you can ever shoot when it comes to colour accuracy.

    Hey Max, Fargo,

    Try looking at the noise in DPP, especially the blue channel....its, well, interesting...😉

    Skin tones can be tricky and try processing more than one output file as well

    best,

    Hello!

    I compared some more outputs of my images (portrait) and produces 2 outputs (one of dpp and one of c1 3.6) that have about up to 100% same colour. But the c1 image looks more blur, a little bit less detail. I specially mean the sharpness, not the colours. The DPP has more fine details, compare the thin hair (the eyebrown for example. All the lines in the crop look \"thinner\" and also a little bit sharper. I think the problem is already there by just importet the cr2 file, so that the perhaps perfect c1 sharpening algirithm has no chance because before the sharpening process beginns the image is already too unsharp. How do i describe the problem the best way (sorry, i am german any more 😊 )

    I think, the c1 crop has a little bigger sharpening range (a negative point)
    Playing with adobe CS and sharpening with a radius more than 1 lets the picture looking more blue and unsharp. That perhaps is the reason, dpp crop has thinner lines!

    What do you think?

    As a conclusion i would say: The problem of c1 is not the charpening algorithmus you can choose BUT the converting, before you do any changes on the image... I hope you mean what i want to say 😊

    Greetings

    I can't agree with you. For me the color looks different between dpp and c1 3.6. I use an Samsung LCD 191T(calibrated). Also I can't see more details in the eyebrown in your dpp crop.

    Hello!

    I want to report, that i made a mistake by generating the crops, after reinsalling 3.6, i forgot to put the dslr noise-reduction on \"low\", now the c1-crop looks better and more sharpen and more detailed than the dpp 1.1 crop!

    I'm very very sorry about that!
    Forgive me 😊

    Greetings
    Max
