No support for any iPhone beyond the X either. I understand that Photolab cannot compete with computational in-camera processing (although Photolab would process Apple’s ProRAW merged RAWs better than anything else) for HDR but allowing us to at least shoot normal RAW mode and process it in Photolab is really the least we can ask of DxO.
Same of course applies to the Google Pixel cameras. Just don’t expect to be able to outbat computational in-camera composites for low light photography. Our phones merge up to dozens of images to create these amazing low light images. In camera, HDR panoramas also leave no conventional RAW file to process.
But for daylight images night mode and multiple photos merged doesn’t apply so Photolab could help us get much better results from these images.
What gets on my nerves is that my Photolab processing skills are pretty good now. Processing photo photos in another application is a distraction. At this point, I’ve given up and only shoot SOOC on my iPhone 11 Pro Max. But it does make built resentment against DxO over the years.
The excuse is that the results will not be worthy of Photolab. Frankly I think we users should be the judge of that. It really angers me that I am unable to use my photo editor of choice to process my phone RAW photos. I was willing to give DxO the benefit of the doubt for six months to perfect processing mobile images but after promising us RAW modules for our phones and not delivering, this is bad faith.
Between this, the Nik 4 fiasco (less compatibility with external applications, removed functionality) and what looks to be more removed support for recent Apple OS, my trust in DxO, sadly, is slipping.
