 Post subject: D800 and Postprocessors
PostPosted: Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:29 pm 
Any speculations as to how postprocessors such as PSP or Photoshop Elements will perform with full size D800 images? I also have a number of not-inexpensive plugins (Color efex, Silver efex, etc.). I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on a D800, but have concerns about software choking on large images.

Provided the performance scales linearly, I'd say everything takes 3x as long. Really depends on if your plugins are multithreaded (can make full use of your multi-core system).

Hello spgfr, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!

As to your question: It's actually pretty easy to test by yourself. Simply scale up an existing image to 7360x4912 and try this. Or you could stitch three images together an end up at that size.
I tried it for myself but only in Lightroom3 (and PSP7) with some fairly standard processing of sharpness, noise, exposure and curves. And it was a little slower but nothing to worry about on my over 1 year old laptop with 8GB RAM.
You should also consider that you don't process every image you shoot to the a full set of layers and what have you. The more time-consuming post-processing normally is reserved only for your better photos.

Great suggestion - thanks. Everything seems to work well, and I've pulled the trigger on a D800 :D

Wow - makes me smile when I look at a resized picture of that size and then imagine the detail if it wasn't resized. :D
I really hope Canon announces a FF camera with a similar pixel count.

Ja, das hochgerechnete Bild sieht wirklich hässlich aus. Sich vorzustellen, was die D800 da liefern wird, Jiko :twisted:
Bin schon ganz kribbelig!

Ich freue mich schon mit - mal hoffen, dass es nicht noch länger dauert, als angekündigt! :D Ich will ein paar Bilder in voller Auflösung sehen! ;)

Nee, ik spreek geen Nederlands, maar Duits is vergelijkbaar genoeg om iets te verstaan. Wat zullen we drinken, zeven dagen lang - wat zullen we drinken, wat een dorst! :lol:

OK, after German and Dutch let's get back to English. :D
