Olympus auto Color Balance, Text enhance

I know, it’s a gimmick. However, it works. Olympus includes a colour balance and text enhance in their default JPG processing in-camera.

It isn’t possible to steal their algorithms, but ON should offer a variety of them, especially the colour balance. I’ve tested it and the GIMP auto white balance is often the closest (although not exactly the same) so, perhaps add that in and offer other options.

The text enhance has been super-handy too. Nice that the JPG has it without me even running it through a processor. However, for colour depth sometimes (rarely) Olympus misses the mark so I’d love to go back to the RAW. It’s a battle sometimes to get even close to the clarity on the text. So, serious need something like that.

    An option to have a good auto white balance feature is what all RAW processors lack. If it could have the ability to recognize pure white, pure black or medium gray and choose any of them to balance off of, it would have the capability to do fairly accurate white balancing, maybe not perfect, but reasonably close enough to be credible for a lot of jobs that do not need to be absolutely perfect. This ability should also lend itself to acheive fairly close to accurate auto exposure adjustment This in my opinion is what is necessary to attract me. I have tried and spent money on all to many RAW converters that really offered no more than ACR and were non intuitive to boot. The lure of no cataloging is not important to me as we already have that with Photoshop CC and Camera RAW. Don’t need bridge for ACR in Photoshop. Just drag your files into it and save them as whatever you want or open them in Photoshop. What I need is to be able to batch process with reasonable white balance capability. If I have to individually white balance each photo then there is no reason for me to use anything but ACR as it is absolutely perfect for my use if I have adjust each photo individually anyway. I am not being negative, I am just tired of paying for that perceived perfect RAW converter and being frustrated with how difficult it is to understand and use, and then wishing I had saved my money as ACR is always superior, at least in my opinion. With that being said something really spectacular will be required to really stand out, and good auto white balance is the only thing that will win me, a non Lightroom user, over.
