DxO Labs has updated DxO Optics Pro to v7.5, which now runs natively as a 64-bit application for both Mac and Windows. The latest version can handle larger images than previous versions - the 200 megapixel limit means the addition of D800 support prove no challenge. 60 of the extra 200 lens/camera profiles are for the Nikon. The latest version is available for free to existing DxO Optics Pro v7 users, with a 33% discount available for new customers until June 30th.


Press Release:

DxO Optics Pro 7.5 moves to 64 bits for faster workflow

May 23, 2012 – DxO Labs announces the availability of DxO Optics Pro v7.5 for Mac and Windows, its image-processing software of reference for all exacting photographers.

DxO Optics Pro v7.5 has been profoundly revised to run as a native 64-bit application. This important update offers quicker previewing and faster processing speed for increased productivity.

The 64-bit version of DxO Optics Pro v7.5 can handle much larger files – up to 200 Megapixels – which notably allows it to handle Nikon D800 files. This update is accompanied by nearly 200 additional DxO Optics Modules, of which 60 are for the Nikon D800.

The laboratory: the secret to DxO’s optical corrections

Thanks to its library of more than 6,000 DxO Optics Modules, DxO Optics Pro automatically corrects all optical flaws such as distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lack of sharpness — with an incomparable level of quality.

DxO Optics Modules are developed in our labs according to a scientific calibration process for each combination of cameras and lenses. Each module contains tens of thousands of data points about the intrinsic limitations of each piece of equipment, thus allowing DxO Optics Pro to automatically apply corrections that are perfectly suited to each image.

An even simpler interface

The DxO Optics Pro v7.5 interface includes new enhancements in Windows for even smoother software use: improvement of the image filtering menu, optimization of the move/zoom palettes, visualization of processing progress in the task bar, etc.

An improved activation system

DxO Optics Pro v7.5 is equipped with a new activation system that is more flexible for customers. Using fewer memory resources, starting up in Windows is much faster, making everyday use even easier.
