DxO Labs has released version 8.2 of its DxO Optics Pro software. Both the Elite and Standard versions gain support for the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, the Sony SLT-A58, and the Ricoh GR. Version 8.2 of DxO Optics Pro also supports all features of the newly announced FilmPack 4 as a plugin.
DxO Optics Pro v8.2 supports 3 new cameras and includes the new features of DxO FilmPack 4
June 5, 2013 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v8.2, the new version of its image processing software of reference for all demanding photographers, which was recently awarded the coveted 2013 TIPA Prize in the category of Best Photo Software. This update for Mac and Windows allows DxO Optics Pro 8 to support the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, the Sony SLT-A58, and the Ricoh GR, as well as to incorporate all of the new features of DxO FilmPack 4 as a plugin.
All of DxO FilmPack 4’s creativity applied to RAW images
DxO Optics Pro v8.2 is able to combine the power of its corrections with the creativity of all the new tools in DxO FilmPack 4 (Expert Edition) in an entirely non-destructive workflow that handles RAW images as well as JPEG.
With DxO FilmPack 4, photographers can apply to their digital photos all the characteristic color, contrast, and grain of analog films that made photographic history, along with many original looks, filters, tonings, and visual effects — all of which can be infinitely combined and customized.
The new tools in DxO FilmPack 4 (Expert Edition) in plugin mode include a new range of effects that can give RAW and JPEG images an even more personal signature. In particular, such new effects as texture, light leaks, and special frames take users even further into the world of analog film photography.
Using DxO FilmPack 4 as a plugin for DxO Optics Pro 8 requires the purchase of a DxO FilmPack 4 license.
New DxO Optics Modules
DxO Optics Pro v8.2 benefits from the continuous development of DxO Optics Modules. 439 new camera/lens combinations now reside in the library, providing support for additional Canon, Carl Zeiss, Konica, Nikkor, Panasonic, Olympus, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, and Tokina lenses for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Ricoh, and Sony cameras.
DxO Optics Modules contain tens of thousands of data points about the intrinsic characteristics and flaws of each camera and lens. This database allows DxO Optics Pro to automatically correct all the optical flaws in RAW and JPEG images – distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, lens softness – with an unrivaled level of quality.\
