The new DxO Optics Pro Version 5 features a new RAW engine the company says will deliver exceptional quality especially for lowlight images. Fully rewritten, version 5 also adds dust/blemish removal, improved user interface, increased speed and expanded camera support.
With the digital SLR user in mind, DxO included in Version 5 a RAW conversion engine that uses a completely new demosaicing algorithm that produces images with much more detail and fewer artifacts.
The new DxO Optics Pro 5 will be released later in the fall. All purchasers of DxO Optics Pro v4.5 on or after August 1st, 2007 are eligible for a free upgrade to DxO Optics Pro v5.
