Exclusive in DxO
DeepPRIME noise reduction:
Would you like a new sensor in your camera? One that delivers finer detail and less noise? It sounds impossible, but this is effectively what DxO’s unique DeepPRIME and DeepPRIME XD technology delivers. Here’s how it works.
Converting the RAW data captured by your camera’s sensor involves a sequence of complex processes, most of which go completely unnoticed.
Two of the fundamental steps are demosaicing and denoising. Demosaicing is the process of converting the values of individual pixels for red, green, and blue and turning them into accurate colors. Denoising is the removal of inaccurate pixels that are generated by interference and heat inside your camera — something that becomes more pronounced when shooting at high ISO levels. These processes are critical in extracting the best possible quality from your RAW files.
DxO breaks new ground
Denoising affects demosaicing and vice versa, and no matter the order in which they are performed, there are compromises — until now. DxO has always been at the forefront of progressing this technology and in recent years, artificial intelligence has opened up new possibilities.
We already had countless photographs available to us as a result of calibrating cameras and lenses in our laboratory and

DeepPRIME removes noise and recovers information without losing detail, creating more natural transitions and textures. The results are spectacular, and as detailed below, the introduction of DeepPRIME XD pushes the boundaries even further. Compared to conventional RAW conversion technology, DeepPRIME delivers the equivalent of an extra two stops of ISO. With DeepPRIME XD, it can be 2.5 stops, sometimes even more.
DeepPRIME XD: Another level
There are two levels of DeepPRIME processing available in the latest versions of DxO PhotoLab 6 and DxO PureRAW 3: DeepPRIME and DeepPRIME XD (which stands for eXtra Details). Both will reduce noise, increase clarity and purify results from your camera’s sensor, but the newer DeepPRIME XD mode uses an even more intensive approach.
DxO’s original DeepPRIME processing remains a choice for images where a certain degree of detail extraction is desired, whereas DeepPRIME XD, with its more exhaustive and effective processing, delivers even finer detail and contrast in both high or low ISO images. Expect photos free from noise, with smoother bokeh, finer textures, and more realistic and natural color.
Both DeepPRIME and DeepPRIME XD are compatible with all major manufacturers’ cameras, including Canon, DJI, Fujifilm, Hasselblad, Nikon, Panasonic, Pentax, Olympus/OM System, Sony, Leica, and more.
Noise reduction has never been better.
