gl2k: The first example image with the couple is a joke. Hopefully. No serious photog would ever place the main subject so close to the edge of the frame. Especially on a wide angle lens.
The second example can be done easily with PS which every serious photog has.
So the question remains : What is the reason to buy this extra piece of software which then has to be incorporated into the workflow.
For sure there will be problems indoors. But there is a better example on the DxO website of an outdoor wide-angle close-up wedding photo that shows how an unusable photo can be salvaged.
I don't think the first example is a joke at all. It shows that the software opens the door to new possibilities.
"My advice is to find this book in your local bookshop, and spend an hour or so leafing through it."
An odd suggestion from the employee of an Amazon subsidiary. Courtesy of your parent company, I no longer have local bookshops.
DxO announced the product will be available as of Jan 25. For some reason DPreview published the press release today instead of respecting DxO's embargo.
