DxO Optics Pro


2010.01.19

Impressive French RAW development software.
It's no exaggeration to say that this software has led to the introduction of DSLRs.
Regardless of the sensor size, it is difficult to take beautiful pictures with the ultra-wide-angle lens around. Previously, the LUMIX G series successfully solved this problem.LUMIX G1". This is an epoch-making system that seamlessly corrects various aberrations of the lens inside the camera.
The DxO Optics Pro, introduced here, is simply a software for developing RAW files. Various camera and lens combination data is built into the software, and automatically corrects for distortion, peripheral light, chromatic aberration, and peripheral blur. This is really impressive. In addition, shift correction, horizontal and vertical fine adjustment, etc. can be perfectly and intuitively corrected.
The SIGMA 12-24mm lens I use is an ultra-wide-angle lens (so?), Which is quite problematic. First of all, the fall of the peripheral light amount is very large, and the peripheral image is also easy to flow. The distortion is very excellent, but it is not perfect because it is a zoom lens after all.
However, if you stop down to f16 and use it with this software, it will quickly turn into a superb ultra-wide-angle lens with almost no optical defects.
This software is not without its drawbacks. First, the processing speed is extremely slow probably because the correction items are diversified.
Regarding the image quality, the resolution is quite high and the finish is flashy but clear. In addition, DxO Lighting is an excellent feature, and it is very useful because it can easily be made brighter by using an auxiliary light in the reflex version. It is difficult to do honestly equivalent processing in Photoshop.
It can be said to be the strongest architectural photography development software.
