Earlier this week, French software company DxO Labs released an update to its flagship Optics Pro workflow app, right on its regular monthly schedule. Compared to the preceding release, DxO Optics Pro adds support for a number of new camera models including the Canon Rebel T5i, as well as adding a vast selection of new lens modules. It also fixes several problems discovered in the earlier version.

New cameras supported by DxO Optics Pro version 8.1.6 include the following

Two specific issues are identified that have been resolved, in addition to various unspecified minor bug fixes. An incompatibility issue with some recent NVIDIA graphics drivers has been corrected, as has a problem with shadow areas of images shot using the Sony Alpha SLT-A99 being rendered with a green cast.

The Canon T5i is one of six cameras newly supported by DxO Optics Pro.

The selection of new optics modules is huge, with the Canon T5i in particular being gifted with automatic lens correction for no less than 181 different lens models. There are also a dozen supported lens types for the Sony NEX-3N, and a further five for the Leica M, along with the built-in lenses of the Nikon Coolpix A, Coolpix P330, and Pentax MX-1. It's not just new cameras being showered with lens correction love, though -- a further 68 optics modules for Micro Four Thirds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic also make their debut. A full list of all 269 new modules can be found on DxO's website.

DxO Optics Pro is available for Windows and Mac computers, priced about US$170 in Standard form, and US$300 for the Elite version. More details can be found on the DxO Labs website. If you already own Optics Pro, you can find the update in the customer area of the site.
