This update allows DxO Optics Pro 8 to support the Canon EOS 6D and the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX1 full-format cameras (Elite Edition only), as well as the Nikon 1 V2.

Based on a unique approach of prior calibration in the laboratories of DxO Labs, DxO Optics Pro 8 includes numerous powerful and automatic RAW and JPEG image-processing tools. DxO Optics Pro 8 offers the most advanced optical corrections on the market, the best tool for automatically adjusting contrast and light, and precise color management. Its unrivaled performance and its intuitive interface provide a smooth and fast workflow.

10,000 DxO Optics Modules available for exceptional optical corrections

DxO Optics Pro v8.1.2 benefits from the continuous addition of DxO Optics Modules. More than a hundred new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, supporting additional Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Sony, Tamron and Tokina lenses for Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras.

DxO Optics Pro achieved the goal it set in early 2012 to have 10,000 DxO Optics Modules available by the end of 2012. Developed in the laboratory using an exclusive calibration process, DxO Optics Modules contain tens of thousands of data points about the intrinsic characteristics and flaws of each camera and lens. This database, unique in the entire world, allows DxO Optics Pro to automatically correct all the optical flaws in RAW and JPEG images – distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness – with an unrivaled level of quality.

The opening of a new lab in Seattle in fall 2012 has strengthened DxO Labs capacity in terms of calibrations and measurements. Now with six laboratories located in Europe and the United States, DxO Labs is looking to double its production rate of DxO Optics Modules in 2013
