The public beta testing period started today for users running the DxO Optics Pro v5 software on the Apple Macintosh platform. The free public beta â€” available in English only at www.dxo.com â€” will run for several weeks. Users are invited to provide their feedback.
The public beta for Mac features the new RAW converter and noise removal technology unveiled in the Windows version, support for the Canon EOS 40D, Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III, Nikon D300 and Nikon D3 camera bodies, and improvements to the existing functionality of the software.
â€œAlthough both the Mac and PC versions are identical in terms of functionalities, Mac users will be especially pleased with the consistency of DxO Optics Pro v5 in the Mac environment,â€ says Cyrille de La Chesnais of DxO Labs. â€œFor instance, the palette and tab icons follow Mac OS X toolbar guidelines and the select tab reproduces the three viewing modes that Mac users are accustomed to using.â€
