Thanks guys for your responce to my questions. I will have to try that topaz, i have used some of there software and its pretty good. So is the topaz thing a final run thru on the files, how do you process your raw files ?. I think for portraits and landscape i should be fine. Im also considering the nikon D810, good used one is on par price wise with 90d. I want video though, i really want to get into video also, so 90d fits better. Im hoping somebody can answer this one, just heard it tonight on a video on youtube. I guess you cant send 24fps to a external monitor or recorder thru hdmi, you can only record 30 fps externally. That alone is almost a deal breaker for me, canon gives you 24fps finally, then you cant send it out thru hdmi, bad bad. I just a video solution and still camera all in one, also considering Fuji xt 3.
Wow i went and tried that Topaz denoise, its amazing, it really sharpens and cleans up the noise. I just did a quick check and ran a 90d file and im impressed, have to play with it more.
Yeah I don't know much about video other than I personally wish the 90d offered something faster than 30fps at 4k, but the R5 I think can do 120fps at 4k thus you can render at 30 fps for some slow motion action sequences...
Topaz works wonders, just don't monkey around with it's "resources" folder placement as it can cause issues, so just let it install everything on your typical default c drive directory ( I was trying to free up space and was moving things around = issues ). Try the AI Clear on your images as sometimes that looks better than AI Denoise, it's kind of a toss up from one image to the next. If you have time to burn, Topaz also has one called Gigapixel AI, which it really depends/case by case with this one, but it can up size some images effectively.
For the 90d I've been doing the following:
Import images to Lightroom, edit
Export to .jpg (largest file possible)
Edit in Elements
Run Topaz, then back to elements to downsize and add watermark
now... some have said you can right click in lightroom and hit "edit in..." and select Topaz
It will then take a second or two, and create a Giant .Tiff file which Topaz can edit
Then once you're done it puts you back in Lightroom with that same .Tiff file, where you can make final adjustments and export as a .jpg
I went back and fourth between both editing sequences and didn't really see a noticeable difference to warrant the extra time spent, but I'd encourage you to try both and I could totally be Wrong here!!
Also: As someone mentioned above, the 90d and lens choice is and shooting technique is paramount to yield best results. I've had great results with the 100-400 II on the 90d.
