Nik Dfine 2 vs Topaz Denoise AI – WHICH IS BETTER?

224

In this video I compare Dfine 2 by Nik Software to Topaz Labs Denoise AI by using them on the same image and comparing the results. The image I used was shot at an ISO of 12,800 and was not processed at all before sending it to Dfine 2 and then independently to Denoise AI.
