DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v9.5.2 for Mac and Windows, the image processing software of reference for all serious photographers. This upgrade allows DxO Optics Pro 9 to offer support for the Nikon D810 (Elite Edition only) and to surpass the milestone of 20,000 available DxO Optics Modules. DxO is distributed in Canada by DayMen.
Unparalleled highlight management and color rendering
Thanks to its exclusive DxO Smart Lighting feature, DxO Optics Pro optimizes the overall contrast of an image by intelligently adapting to its contents. Details in the four different light ranges, once thought to be unrecoverable, are revealed, even when the information was missing in the original RAW files. This makes it the perfect tool to use with the Nikon D810, which offers a great depth of color and very large dynamic range, resulting in subtle gradations of tone in both highlights and shadows.
20,000 Optics Modules available for unequaled optical corrections
DxO Optics Pro v9.5.2 also adds 894 new camera/lens combinations to its library of DxO Optics Modules, thus providing support for Konica Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, Tokina, and Zeiss lenses for numerous Nikon, Panasonic, and Sony cameras.
DxO Optics Pro has surpassed the milestone of 20,000 DxO Optics Modules. Developed in the laboratory through an exclusive calibration process, DxO Optics Modules contain all the information about the characteristics of each camera and lens. This database, unique in all the world, allows DxO Optics Pro to automatically correct distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness with an unrivaled level of quality.
With five laboratories throughout Europe, DxO Labs has greater capacity for calibrating and measuring cameras and lenses, thus ensuring an even higher production rate of DxO Optics Modules.
