    Sony RX 10 IV and Topaz DeNoise AI

    Hi,

    anybody using the combination Sony RX 10 IV and Topaz DeNoise AI with Lightroom Classic?

    Is it worth to buy the Topaz module?

    I am also considering their sharpen tool.

    The Nik Collection denoiser is much better. Dfine2.

    If you are looking at noise reduction,DxO PhotoLab and its Prime NR works very well.

    The topaz tools are great when they work, if you get a lot of use out of them then they are worth buying. They've had some complaints over their licensing model in that you buy it and only get updates for a year, after that you can keep whatever version you got up to but any further updates is a brand new full-orice purchase.

    Personally, I'd wait for them to go on sale - shame you just missed their Black Friday and new year deals, they were significant discounts.

    Much better in what regard? I've had varying results from "traditional" denoisers, but the AI tools are starting to pull ahead in everything but price, in my experience.

    Honestly I would just download a trial copy of DxO Photolab and try the PRIME and DeepPRIME NR - its IMHO the best available in the market. Its better than Topaz,Nik,etc. The original PRIME NR was very well multi-threaded and also used the GPU,and the new DeepPRIME is even faster. I have been using it for years now and pretty much ditched using Lightroom,which was terrible in comparison WRT to NR and CPU/GPU optimisations and the only advantage it has is better support for 3rd party plugins.

    Its only main disadvantage is that it won't work with Fuji X-Trans sensors,ie,its only for camera RAW made from Bayer type sensors.
