PRESS RELEASE: DxO Optics Pro celebrates its 5th birthday and now supports over 1,200 optical correction modules!
Paris, France – 15th May 2009 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of 83 new DxO optical correction modules, adding to the 100 modules recently published. These additions now extend DxO Optic Pro’s range to include over 1,200 modules covering all types of lenses on the market: fisheyes, wide-angles, zooms, and super telephotos, and most major brands (Canon, Konica-Minolta, Nikkor, Pentax, Samsung, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, Tokina, Carl Zeiss).
Over the last 5 years, DxO Labs has been analyzing camera/lens combinations so as to provide corrections that are specific to each lens. For example, DxO Optics Pro corrects the geometric distortion and compensates for the vignetting of wide-angle lenses; it increases the sharpness and corrects the chromatic aberration for telephoto shots. To achieve such results, DxO Labs’ engineers and expert photographers have interpreted hundreds of thousands of images representing all possible configurations of the cameras in use (focal length, aperture, sensitivity, etc.).
DxO Optics Pro software is the unique solution that simply and automatically enhances each photo with respect to the camera, the lens and the shooting conditions.
DxO Optics Pro is also a powerful RAW converter that delivers amazing results in terms of noise-reduction, contrast correction, and color fidelity at all ISO settings (right up to 25,600 ISO) for a wide range of digital cameras.
To celebrate DxO Optics Pro’s 5th birthday, DxO Labs offers a 25% discount for the entire month of May.
This 25% discount also applies to the DxO FilmPack software which allows digital photographers to rediscover the styles, colors, and grains of the most famous silver-halide films.
