Original Source Press Release:
DxO ships Optics Pro v3.5|
(Sunday, November 20, 2005 - 14:48 EST)
A press release from DxO Labs has announced the release of an update to its DxO Optics Pro software.
DxO Optics Pro v3.5, adds the support for Canon's EOS 5D digital SLR that the company promised last August. The new version also supports multiple processors (allowing processing speeds up to twice as fast as in the previous version), offers a refined user interface, user-defined cropping, as well as improved control over both DxO Lighting corrections and color fringe removal. DxO also notes that up to 40% more image surface can now be retained when eliminating geometric distortion, and that image detail is improved.
Available in two versions, DxO Optics Pro v3.5 Standard for prosumer and "expert amateur" digital SLRs costs US$149 plus sales tax, or DxO Optics Pro v3.5 Elite for US$ 299 plus sales tax adds support for professional DSLRs. (That's $10 less than the pricing on v3.0 Standard, but $50 more than the previous Elite version). Users of DxO v3.0 in either the Standard or Elite variants can upgrade to the equivalent v3.5 release free of charge.
