We noticed that some readers thought our Leica M11 Monochrom samples were a bit dark. Well, part of that comes down to the fact that many of them were captured at twilight, but the lack of color can make that difficult to suss out. These monochrome-only cameras should also be underexposed in order to protect data in the too-easily-blown highlights.
Nevertheless, we ran a handful of DNGs through Adobe Camera Raw and brightened them up just a tad – mostly exposure, shadows, and highlights – and you can see these samples at the top of the gallery. And as always, if you’re really curious about the potential in these images, you can download the Raw files and edit them yourself.

The Canon EOS R10 is compact, mid-level 24MP APS-C mirrorless camera built around Canon’s RF mount. We look into whether it offers more than your smartphone.
The Fujifilm X-T5 is the company’s latest classically-styled APS-C mirrorless camera. It gains the 40MP sensor and AF system from the X-H2 but in a body with a more stills-focused slant. We’ve been putting it through its paces.
Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom impress in a lot of ways, but their noise reduction lags the competition and their lens corrections lack a real-world basis. DxO PureRAW 3 aims to come to their rescue without totally reinventing your workflow!
