Loupedeck+ is a second generation of the Loupedeck originally crowdfunded on Indiegogo in 2016. This newer version has improved on the overall build quality while adding a few more knobs, buttons, and functions. There is also a brand new Loupedeck CT (Creative Tool) selling for $550, which is fantastic, but it is an overkill for my Lightroom workflow. I can see it being useful for music and video editing with its incredibly deep customization.
For my Lightroom editing needs, Loupedeck+ is perfect.
If I could only suggest improvement in the next version, it would be to add a light indicator for each knob. The same light indicator already used on the Loupedeck+ for changing color channel modes would do fine. This way, I could see at a glance which knobs have adjustments. This indicator would be super useful when pasting adjustment settings between different photos.
Please feel to ask any questions about the Loupedeck+, and I would happily answer them here. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this review and learned a new way of editing Lightroom fun again!
P.S. All of the photos in this review were edited in Lightroom using a Loupedeck+ 😉
