The plugin suite Nik Collection for Adobe software (Photoshop/Lightroom) that was being released by DxO, then purchased by Google that then gave it for free (our notice here), is now back in the hands of DxO, which will maintain and update it, again not free but with a much lower price than the initial one (around $ 500): it will cost $50 for initial period than $70.

Alan Dyer in its website about astrophotography has put the recent Sony A7 Mark III into test for astronomy shooting with very extensive tests on low light, noise, color fidelity and comparing it with similar priced full-frame cameras: the Nikon D750 and the Canon EOS 6D Mark II.

The Sony performs very well, on par with (4 year old) Nikon D750 while offering also low-light real time video since the shutter speed can be as low as 1/4 sec but requiring an external intervalometer (quite a miss).
