DxO Labs has announced the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v9.1.5 for Mac and Windows, the image-processing software of reference for all demanding photographers. This upgrade enables DxO Optics Pro 9 to offer support for the Nokia Lumia 1020, the first smartphone capable of shooting in RAW format. DxO is distributed in Canada by DayMen.
DxO Optics Pro v9.1.5 also offers support for four additional cameras: the Canon EOS 1200D (EOS Rebel T5), the Olympus E-M10 and Stylus 1, and the Nikon Coolpix P340.
The power of DxO Optics Pro RAW processing for mobile phone expert photographers
Based on highly-specific laboratory calibrations of the Nokia Lumia 1020’s sensor and lens, DxO Optics Pro 9 applies corrections that are perfectly tailored to this mobile phone.
In addition, its tool for optimizing exposure and contrast, DxO Smart Lighting, brings out the details in the different light ranges in Nokia Lumia 1020 images — recovering details in burned highlights and in shadows, even in areas with strong backlighting. Further, DxO Optics Pro 9’s revolutionary PRIME denoising technology restores detailed textures even in images taken at high ISO.
These two technologies are a real plus for the Nokia Lumia 1020’s RAW images: noise is efficiently reduced and the exposure is optimized, all while preserving colors and details, for perfectly successful interior shots and portraits.

More than 18,000 available Optics Modules
DxO Optics Pro v9.1.5 also benefits from the addition of new DxO Optics Modules: 472 new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, which today counts more than 18,000 available DxO Optics Modules.
Produced in the laboratory, DxO Optics Modules contain copious information about the characteristics of each camera and each lens so as to be able to automatically correct distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness with an unrivaled level of quality.
The capacity of DxO’s laboratories enables DxO Optics Pro 9 to quickly offer support for the latest models — for example, DxO will support the Panasonic Lumix GH-4 and the Sony A6000 in the very near future.
