I myself own both the 100w solar panels from Goal Zero and Jackery, and will confidently state that the Jackery 100w solar panel is far superior to the Goal Zero one, too.

Topaz Labs – Save Over 60%!

When: November 27th to 30th

Topaz Labs have made an incredible set of AI applications in the past few years, with DeNoise AI and Gigapixel AI easily becoming the de-facto standard for noise reduction and image enlargement programs. Sharpen AI has also proven to be a wizard-like application for rescuing images that are not critically sharp due to motion blur or missed focus. The Topaz suite of plugins is the only plugin system that I use regularly in my own editing workflow.

For Black Friday this year, Topaz is offering a couple of bundles that allow you to save 60%+ on these amazing applications.

Important Bundle Information (Please Read)

  • You will NOT pay for plugins that you already own, so if you have one or two of the bundle items already, your price will be automatically reduced as long as you are logged into your Topaz account when you navigate to the special Black Friday deal page.
  • You can save a further 15% off the bundle price by using our discount code: shuttermuse

$299 – The Everything Bundle

This special Black Friday bundle deal includes DeNoise AI, Gigapixel AI, Adjust AI, JPEG to RAW AI, Mask AI, Sharpen AI, Studio 2, and Video Enhance AI for just $299! ($254.15 with our coupon code)

$199 – The Everything Bundle (- Video Enhance AI)

Deselect this option if you want to drop the price to $199.

This is the same as the Everything Bundle, except Video Enhance AI is removed and the price is only $199 ($169.15 with our coupon code). Of course, this would be the package to get if you do not ever shoot any video content.

IMPORTANT: In order to see the $199 price, you must deselect the little checkbox that says “Include Video Enhance AI”. Once deselected, the price will drop from $299 to $199.

  1. Dan the MIOPS deal on Smart+ looks good, but they just launched FLEX on Kickstarter. If you want a smart trigger now, then Smart+ plus might be the trick, but if you are looking for a more powerful tool and prepared to wait then this might be of interest:

    Of course their last project had some long delays, and relatively poor communication (pre-COVID) – so hopefully they’ll execute better this time. I decided I’d risk it again, given C360 was a pretty sweet setup.

  2. Hey Dan, you mention the Rawsie BF deal, but a quick search did not find a review anywhere on your site.
    Are you using it? Is it simply a fast DNG conversion? Why not just use the Adobe tools for this? Interested in yours and anyone here’s experience.

    • Hi Nigel,

      This is a tool that produced compressed DNGs. So their file size would be considerably smaller than the DNG produced by Adobe. I haven’t reviewed the software yet, but I’ll put it on my to-do list.
