A new release of Paris, France-based DxO Labs' flagship Optics Pro image processing application today offers something for pros and consumers alike, with support for a variety of new camera bodies and body / lens pairings.

The newly supported cameras in DxO Optics Pro v7.5.5 include the Canon EOS-1D X, Nikon D600, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5, and Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7. Note, though, that while the Panasonic models are supported in both the Standard and Elite versions of Optics Pro, the enthusiast-friendly Nikon D600 and pro-oriented Canon 1D X are only supported by the Elite edition of Optics Pro.

There are also a total of 396 new lens modules, of which some 224 are specific to the newly-added cameras: 106 for the Canon EOS-1D X, 71 for the Nikon D600, 46 for the Panasonic G5, and of course the built-in lens on the Panasonic LX7. There are also new modules for various lenses on Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Samsung, 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.


As well as the new camera and lens support, DxO says that Optics Pro includes some minor bug fixes on both Windows and Mac platforms. The company doesn't detail these, but the official release notes do state that the Mac bug fixes are specific to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

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!
