March 25, 2013 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v8.1.4 for Mac and Windows, the new version of its image processing software of reference for all demanding photographers. This update to DxO Optics Pro 8 brings support for four additional new cameras: the Nikon Coolpix P7700, the Nikon 1 J3, the Olympus XZ-2 iHS, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3.
DxO Optics Pro v8.1.4 integrates many powerful tools for processing RAW and JPEG images, including the best tool for automatically adjusting contrast and light, along with precise color management. Its unrivaled performance and intuitive interface provide a quick and smooth workflow.
11,000 DxO Optics Modules available
DxO Optics Pro v8.1.4 benefits from the continuous addition of DxO Optics Modules. More than 200 new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, offering support for additional Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Sigma, Tokina, and Zeiss lenses for numerous Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Pentax cameras.
Among the new lenses supported are the Nikon 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 (a standard lens equivalent to a 50 mm in 24×36 format), and Pentaxs recent trans-standard K-mount, the smc DA18-270mm F3.5-6.3 SDM.
The addition of these new combinations means that DxO Optics Pro 8 now has more than 11,000 DxO Optics Modules at its disposal. Developed in the laboratory using an exclusive calibration process, this unique database automatically corrects optical flaws such as distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness.
