A review of the editing console for Adobe Lightroom

The Promise

LoupeDeck’s appeal is that you have dedicated hardware knobs to manipulate controls in Lightroom.

In Use

It took me a while to get used to having LoupeDeck as my main point of contact within Lightroom, and even now I’m not convinced that I’m working any faster than I was before.

  • I missed having Grain as an option for the C1 knob

Room for Improvement

LoupeDeck is built fairly well and feels sturdy on my desk. It doesn’t wobble or creak in use.

The Verdict

LoupeDeck costs €249 (about $300USD or nearly $400CAD).
