May 10, 2010 — DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v6.2 for Windows and Mac, providing Mac users with powerful RAW conversion and advanced optical corrections, along with a more intuitive interface.
DxO Optics Pro v6.2 now supports Canon 550D and Sony Alpha DSLR-A450 in both its Standard and Elite editions, and the Canon 1D Mark IV and Nikon D3s in its Elite edition.
In addition, 85 new DxO optical modules are now available to DxO Optics Pro users, supporting the following cameras: Canon 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 7D,1D Mark III, 1D Mark IV; Fuji S5 Pro; Nikon D3000, D40X, D50, D60, D90, D700, D3, D3s; Pentax K200D, K-7; and Sony A450. This brings the number of lens-camera combinations supported by DxO Optics Pro to 2000, permitting users to obtain an unequaled precision of optical fault correction.
“The availability of the Canon 1D Mark IV and Nikon D3s cameras that permit access to previously unimaginable ISO settings has represented an enormous opportunity for DxO Optics Pro to utilize its technical expertise. Instead of being considered as 'emergency' settings that produce poor-quality photos, we have been able to demonstrate that photographers can use these very high ISO operational settings on a daily basis to produce outstanding, high-quality images,” explained Cyrille de La Chesnais, DxO Labs' Director of Sales & Marketing for the Photography business.
New features of version 6.2 for Mac users
Version 6 offers Mac users access to:
- The latest noise-suppression technologies, resulting in remarkably high-quality photos at normal ISOs, or even pushing the sensitivity above current limits – up to one or two stops above the usual settings, without noticeable loss of image quality
- Manual optics correction control for lenses that have not yet been calibrated, and supplementary control of high spatial frequencies for greater preservation of details in an image
- A user interface redesigned for easier handling by new users, and optimized work flow for greater productivity for expert and professional photographers
- Support for the following cameras: Pentax K-7, Sony Alpha DSLR-A500, Sony Alpha DSLR-A550, Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1.
