Many of us get really excited about new cameras and upgrading our equipment. New, always seems better in the tech world. Unfortunately, it generally comes with quite a hefty price. Upgrading your equipment regularly can be extremely costly and in many situations, it's not really worth it.
Over the last few years, the improvements in image quality between generations hasn't been huge. For the most part, we're seeing differences of around half a stop of low light and high ISO performance and maybe a 20% resolution increase. Yes, this is better, but it's pretty incremental in the larger scheme of things. A camera that's two generations old will only be about a stop worse at the extremes, and when shooting in relatively good conditions, the differences are negligible.
Recently, I have been testing out some software form a company called Topaz Labs. Many of their ads on Facebook and Instagram caught my attention because the claims are pretty strong. I decided to put their software to the test and I must say, I'm impressed.
In the video linked above, I test out some of the software currently available form the company. I demonstrate how they can improve your images in a way that could mean, that you don't need to upgrade your cameras.
