Continuing its rapid, clockwork-like three week release schedule, Paris, France-based DxO Labs has unveiled a new version of its flagship Optics Pro image processing application. Optics Pro v7.5.3 adds support for three new cameras and an expansive list of 300 new optics modules. Various minor, unstated bugs are also said to have been fixed.
The newly supported cameras in Optics Pro v7.5.3 include the Canon Rebel T4i (aka EOS 650D / KISS X6i), the Sony A37, and the Sony NEX-F3. All three cameras are supported in both the Standard and Elite versions of Optics Pro.
Of the new lens modules, some 104 are specific to the newly-added cameras: 61 for the Canon T4i, 40 for the Sony SLT-A37, and three for the Sony NEX-F3. There are also new modules for various lenses on Canon, Olympus, Nikon, Panasonic, and Sony camera bodies. To see if your own gear is already on the supported list, or planned for support in an upcoming version, take a look at DxO's Supported Equipment page.
The previous release, v7.5.2, also added support for three new cameras and around 300 modules. In addition, it fixed a rare database corruption bug. Newly-supported cameras in that version included the Olympus E-M5, Panasonic GF5, and Panasonic FZ150.
DxO Optics Pro is priced at around US$170 for the Standard edition and $300 for the Elite edition, respectively. A time-limited trial version is available for new customers, and the update is free of charge for anybody who purchased Optics Pro 6 or 7 after September 1, 2011. More details on the DxO website!
