DxO LabsDxO Optics Pro version 5.2 software : DxO Labs announced DxO Optics Pro v5.2, the latest version of its award-winning flagship software application for automatic image quality enhancement for digital SLR camera users, featuring dramatic improvements in RAW conversion for images shot at ultra-high ISOs. The release of DxO Optics Pro v5.2 software is accompanied by support for three new SLR camera bodies, various improvements including the DxO Optics Pro Import plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, and extension of the free DxO FilmPack offer. DxO Optics Pro v5.2 adds support for the popular Pentax K20D, Sony-A350 and Sony-A700 DSLR camera bodies and an initial selection of lenses.

New RAW converter
DxO Optics Pro v5.0 marked an important milestone in the world of RAW converters by taking the lead in terms of noise removal and detail rendition. DxO Optics Pro v5.2 takes another dramatic step forward in noise removal for RAW images shot at ISOs as high as 25600, while improving the level of details and color fidelity in the photo. “We are facing a paradox,” says Cyrille de La Chesnais, director of the photography business at DxO Labs, “as technology evolves the number of pixels and the amount of noise simultaneously increase so that RAW conversion becomes more challenging.”

Reduce noise with DxO Optics Software
Frédéric Guichard, Chief Scientist at DxO Labs explains, “Reduction of the pixel size of roughly 35% from 2003 to 2008 and the naturally increasing demand from photographers to shoot at very high ISO reveals new problems with noise related to both the manufacturing of the sensor and the quantity of light hitting it. This means that RAW converters have to cope with higher photonics noise as well as with new sources of noise due to electronic imperfections. The ability of RAW converters to reduce noise while keeping good detail rendition is clearly the key for high ISO shooting.”

DxO Optics Pro v5.2 noise engine update
• Automatic correction of defective pixels (dead and hot pixels …)
• New chrominance noise removal in RAW format is better adapted to the characteristics of each camera body and does a better job of preserving real color nuances.
• Multi-scale RAW luminance noise removal allows the software to remove larger noise spots and results in even smaller digital grain size after correction.
• Compared with competing RAW converters, for the same level of detail preservation, DxO Optics Pro v5.2 provides a 2-f/stop gain in the shooting latitude at ultra-high ISOs.


Adobe Photoshop Import plug-in
The DxO Optics Pro Import plug-in for Adobe Photoshop is included in DxO Optics Pro v5.2. It allows users to import images (RAW or JPEG) into Adobe Photoshop via the DxO Optics Pro plug-in and thus benefit from DxO Optics Pro revolutionary RAW conversion, and exclusive optical and lighting corrections. Additionally, as compared to v5.1, DxO Optics Pro v5.2 brings a number of stability and interface improvement, and bug fixes.
