Win one of the most advanced noise reduction programs out there!
Posted on 01-19-2013 in Pentax Events,
ArcSoft (a company specializing in post-processing software) has recently announced a new noise-reduction program called low-light NR, which introduces a feature called multi-frame noise reduction on top of conventional noise reduction algorithms. They are giving away 5 free copies of this software through an exclusive PentaxForums.com giveaway, and it only takes a few minutes to enter, so we highly encourage you to do so. Details on the giveaway are found here.
Below is an example of how this new noise reduction technology outperforms traditional algorithms:
As you can see, noise is obliterated and details are retained almost perfectly.
The reason this works so well is that multi-frame NR collects pixel data from multiple consecutive photos of the same subject. Such photos can be obtained by shooting in burst mode or using exposure compensation. Since the noise patterns will differ slightly from photo to photo, the software is able to recover detail lost in your original photo by looking at the other frames.
Our Low Light NR giveaway raffle will close in 3 weeks, so enter today if you're interested in winning a free copy of this $80 software! No purchase necessary. You can also try a free trial of the software while you wait for the winners to be announced.
In case you weren't aware, ArcSoft is also the developer of some of the software that Pentax bundles with their cameras! If you are interested in any ArcSoft products, the coupon code PENTAXARCSOFT will save you 25%.
