DxO Optics Pro v4.2 Broadens Support to Include 3 More Cameras

Paris, France — May 22, 2007 – DxO Labs announces today that the award-winning DxO Optics Pro v4.2 software now supports the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro and FinePix S3 Pro as well as the Pentax K10D Digital Single-Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras. Support for these three new cameras and their associated lens correction modules are available in the DxO Optics Pro v4.2 Standard and Elite editions. Upgrades to this latest version of the software, including support for this new set of digital cameras, is free for all DxO Optics Pro v4.x users (Standard and Elite editions).

DxO Optics Pro processing specifically tuned for the Fujifilm Super CCD sensor

- DxO’s image scientists paid particular attention during the development of the new software to the processing of RAW files produced by the Fujifilm Super CCD sensor technology featured in both the FinePix S5 Pro and the FinePix S3 Pro digital cameras. DxO’s proprietary demosaicing algorithms were fine-tuned to maximize image detail while avoiding unwanted artifacts when processing files from these Fujifilm DSLRs.

- Thanks to advanced features such as DxO Lighting (exposure optimization) and Automatic Highlight Recovery, DxO Optics Pro is able to fully utilize and optimize the dynamic range captured by the Fujifilm Super CCD sensor technology. DxO Optics Pro intelligently blends images from both layers of the sensor to produce optimal results.
