The Nik Collection 2.3 by DxO now features Adox Silver Max 21, Agfa Scala 200x, Bergger BRF 400 Plus, Foma 100, Fuji Neopan 400, Ilford Pan 100 and 400, Polaroid 667 and 672, and Rollei 100 Tonal film simulations.

"Each film has been carefully selected for its artistic merits or historical appeal", explains DxO. "Adox Silver Max 21 was chosen for its fine grain and ability to produce deep blacks and a wide range of greys, making it the perfect option for portraits. Bergger BRF 400 Plus was picked for its moderate contrast and average grain, which makes it well suited for landscape photos. Foma 100, a classic panchromatic film with a fine grain and high resolution, offers a wide range of greys even in bright light, making it an excellent choice for landscape and studio photography. Finally, Ilford 100 and 400 were tapped for their versatility and sharpness, while Rollei 100 Tonal offers a fine grain and soft contrasts, which are popular among architecture fans."

Dan Hughes was entrusted with designing the finishes. Hughes is a lecturer in photography science at the Rochester Institute of Technology, a former Nik Software trainer, and the creator of the 42 "En Vogue" styles included in the Nik Collection 2 by DxO

Hmmm...£69 for 10 new film simulations?
Methinks DxO are getting greedy - you can buy Luminar 4 for £89 and that's the whole programme, not just an addition to an existing package...
