DxO Labs has announced the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v9.1.5 for Mac and Windows, the image-processing software of reference for photographers. This upgrade enables DxO Optics Pro 9 to offer support for the Nokia Lumia 1020, the first smartphone capable of shooting in RAW format.
The software also offers support for four additional cameras: the Canon EOS 1200D (EOS Rebel T5), the Olympus E-M10 and Stylus 1, and the Nikon Coolpix P340.
Based on laboratory calibrations of the Nokia Lumia 1020's sensor and lens, DxO Optics Pro 9 applies corrections that are tailored to this mobile phone. In addition, its tool for optimizing exposure and contrast, DxO Smart Lighting, brings out the details in the different light ranges in Nokia Lumia 1020 images - recovering details in burned highlights and in shadows, even in areas with strong backlighting. Further, DxO Optics Pro 9’s revolutionary PRIME denoising technology restores detailed textures even in images taken at high ISO.
These two technologies are a plus for the Nokia Lumia 1020’s RAW images: noise is efficiently reduced and the exposure is optimized, all while preserving colors and details, for successful interior shots and portraits.
DxO Optics Pro v9.1.5 also benefits from the addition of new DxO Optics Modules: 472 new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, which today counts more than 18,000 available DxO Optics Modules.
The Standard (US$169) and Elite editions (US$299) of DxO Optics Pro v9.1.5 are now available in the DxO online store and at photo resellers. Photographers who acquired a DxO Optics Pro 8 license on or after September 1, 2013, are entitled to a free upgrade to version 9.
