The latest version of DxO’s raw conversion software PhotoLab 2.2 brings compatibility for Canon’s EOS R mirrorless camera as well as the Nikon Z6, the EOS M50 and the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom drone. The update also introduces corrections for a collection of lenses including models from the Canon R and Nikon Z systems, and three lenses for the Hasselblad X1D.

The company says the inclusion of the new lenses and cameras means almost 3500 new modules have been added to the package in this update, taking the total to 46,248. Nikon Z system users will now be able to access corrections for the Nikkor Z fixed focal length lenses (the Nikon Z7 was added in the last update) and Canon EOS R users will get to work on their raw files as well as to correct the RF 50mm F1.2 and the RF 24-105mm F4L. Sony users will get the benefit of corrections for five third-party lenses and Micro Four Thirds photographers will finally be able to work with images from the Panasonic Leica DG Vario 50-200mm F2.8-4.0 ASPH.

The update is free for users already running v2.0 of PhotoLab while new comers will need to pay £99/€125 for the Essential edition and £159/€199 for the Elite. For more information see the DxO website.

DxO PhotoLab 2.2: Support added for the Nikon Z 6 and the Canon EOS R

PARIS — March 6, 2019 — DxO PhotoLab, DxO’s advanced photo editing software, continues to evolve with its new update to version 2.2. After introducing and improving DxO PhotoLibrary, an image and data management system that lets users search for, select, sort, and display images, DxO PhotoLab 2.2 adds support for four new devices: the Nikon Z 6, the Canon EOS R and EOS M50, and the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom drone.

More Than 46,000 Camera/Lens Combinations Available
DxO PhotoLab 2.2 adds no fewer than 3,472 new optical modules to its library, bringing the total number of available combinations to 46,248—among them the recent NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S and NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S, as well as the CANON RF 24-105mm F4L and the CANON RF 50mm F1.2. The software also includes modules from the Hasselblad X1D’s range of autofocus lenses specifically designed for high resolution: the Hasselblad XCD 21mm F4, the Hasselblad XCD 30mm F3.5, and the Hasselblad XCD 90mm F3.2. Further, the new version supports the Mavic 2 Zoom, a DJI consumer drone with 24-48mm F2.8-3.8 lenses. Finally, version 2.2 completes its offer for Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Pentax and Sony with the following modules:

  • Panasonic Leica DG Vario 50-200mm F2.8-4.0 ASPH
  • Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW
  • Samyang AF 35mm F2.8 for Sony FE
  • Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art for Nikon F
  • Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN C for Sony E

These optical modules are designed in DxO’s laboratories according to a proprietary scientific characterization process. They contain all the information about the specificities of thousands of camera/lens combinations. Further, they allow DxO solutions—DxO PhotoLab, DxO FilmPack, and DxO ViewPoint— to automatically correct such optical defects such as distortion, chromatic aberrations, and vignetting with a high level of quality. In addition, DxO PhotoLab is the only software that corrects the lack of sharpness in lenses without otherwise degrading the image. Thanks to its unique know-how, DxO now offers the best optical corrections on the market.
