I have a bunch of keepers from previous photos that I have spent a few hours each tweaking to be right where I want using iphoto and later aperture. I loaded those raw files into dxo, and the "auto" mode looks nearly the same as my hour of tweaks, but the focus and noise is better, and it corected of all of the chromatic aberrations from my years of non L lenses.

Get the 30 day demo, and play with this.

The way they license it as pro version if you have a full frame sensor in your camera, otherwise you don't need the pro version.

crappy program, doesn't worth a penny. I tried this latest version, can't even load a D7000 raw file, showing error "SubsampleScale1 Execution Error"

Save your money and use rawtherapee or LR

This is simply not true. I use DxO since v5 times, it has always been my favourite RAW converter for Canon EOS 10D, 40D, S95 and now for the Sony RX100 as well. It works like a charm and produces consistently good results.

What I also like about DxO is that if they support a camera, they do it completely, or not at all. Example: Fuji X10. LR supports the X10 RAW files since v3.6, but not the 6 MP modes, which are exactly those ones which make the difference of the X10 over other cams. Then I prefer the DxO approach to delay the support (or even not support it at all).

The conclusion that it is "crappy" from a single trial is simply invalid. Did you try to contact the DxO support to resolve your issue (which might be an installation or OS environment issue)?

Nevertheless, DxO is certainly not the ideal RAW converter for everyone. it comes down to a matter of taste which workflow behind the tool matches your ideas. DxO is definitely different in that matter, compared to e.g. LR.

Thank you DxO, I for one, am grateful as I did not expect RX100 support and it is quite good!

And still, no support for the Ricoh GXR... :-(

Not even their DNG files!

This means, I still can't correct (not even "manually"!) pictures taken with the GXR, as they aren't even displayed (recognized) by DxO...

When oh when will I finally be able to use DxO with the GXR / DNG files???

Same is true for Samsung NX. Also a niche camera...?? I have written to DxO many times, but they just ignore it. Meanwhile I have dropped the idea to purchase DxO.

You can can see how DXO Labs and their deal with Canon has kept the Fujifilm X-Pro1 from being added to DXO Optics Pro. product.; shameful!

Do you have any references to support this allegation, i'm not saying that you are lying, i'd just expect some supporting evidence to back up such a claim.

This is just silly. The Fuji uses a non-bayer sensor and is, for all practical purposes a niche camera. R&D costs and the natural business decision to support more popular cameras and camera-lens combos means the x1pro is waaaaaaay down the priority ladder. Oh, I could be wrong. Maybe Canon was in on the Kennedy assassination too. And they were also behind the fake moon landing photos. After all, conspiracy theory and Canon both begin with the letter "C".

Doesn´t matter what the reason for the decision is. But for me, DXO Optics is one of the best RAW tools. So, it would be great if I could use it for my X-Pro1 shots.

Canon made a pretty lousy deal then, considering their sensors consistently are shown to be inferior to Sony's in DXO's tests.

@peevee: Gosh, how did Canon find out you were in league with Fuji and get your ISP to block your access to the DXO site while the rest of us could get to it? Sorry you got singled out for such a raw deal.
