DXO Optics 8 review at PC Pro: "This software isn’t as multitalented as Lightroom, but it’s more streamlined and just as polished"

'Streamlined'? Last time i gave it a try, I was forced to hop back and forth like a rabbit, but that last time was also my first time with image editing software from France. Maybe, after so many years, i should give it one more try. The reviewer is Ben Pitt, and the edition he is reviewing is the Plebs 'Standard' one, meaning it doesn't support any full frame Dslr cameras, nor any Leicas:

"DxO’s Organise module gives direct access to your PC’s folders, so there’s no need to go through a convoluted import process. Sorting and filtering options are limited, and it’s possible to create virtual folders inside Optics Pro to bring photos together from disparate sources. A star rating system is used, but the ratings we’d added in Lightroom and embedded in the files weren’t recognised. The lack of a visible undo history is also disappointing. All edits are non-destructive so it . . . read more

DxO Optics Pro: 98 new lens & camera combinations added to module database and available for download.

The good news: DXO keeps churning out new camera/lens combinations for its DXO Optics raw edit program on a regular basis. They do a very good job of supporting very old Dslr cameras with new lens combinations, like the Canon 20D and the Nikon D200. 
The bad news: I believe they need to overhaul the core of the program really soon, it is still ages a bit behind its main competitors (Lightroom, Capture 1 and Aperture) when it comes to speed and user interface. Also, still no support for Fujifilm's X-Trans sensor based cameras. Worse news: I have no clue about where to send the pitchfork and torch wielding mob, lies the blame for the lack of X-Trans support with Fujifilm or DXO labs? 

From DXO Labs:

98 new lens / camera combinations have been added to the DxO Optics Modules library, providing supports for Canon, Panasonic, Sigma and Sony lenses, for Canon, Nikon, Olympus and Sony cameras. Newly added camera body and lens combinations: . . . read more

DPreview's Chaps and Lads turn into Homies and Dudes: Raw Converter Showdown time Capture One Pro 7.02 VS. DxO Optics Pro 8 VS. Lightroom 4.3

Yo Phil, that place ain't what it used to be, eh? The move from London to the Wild West may have dented the lingual footprint of the site, but cultural fusion can have some wonderful effects too: Here comes a comparison SHOWDOWN of epic proportions, showing off some nice reviewing skills by Amadou Diallo. I would really have liked to see what Bibble-in its new 'Aftershot' persona, is up to nowadays, but this review is very large as it is, spanning 6 pages that share tons of information between them. Some snippets:

"For my money, Capture One Pro 7 produces more realistic skin tones for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Nikon D600 shots seen above. DxO Optics Pro 8 delivers more faithful results in the Olympus EPL-3 and Sony SLT-A57 images. I'd rank Lightroom 4 the most accurate in the Canon EOS T4i portrait. This is an admittedly subjective ranking, and the differences are fairly subtle.

DXO Optics Pro version 8.1.2 released, adds support for the Canon 6D, Sony RX-1, Nikon 1 V2, and surpasses the symbolic milestone of 10.000 available optics modules.

From DXO Optics:

Since the previous version, DxO Optics Pro v8.1.2 has added nearly 300 new camera/lens combinations to provide support for additional Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Sony, Tamron and Tokina lenses for Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras.

DxO Optics Pro achieved the goal it set in early 2012 to have 10,000 DxO Optics Modules available by the end of 2012. Developed in the laboratory using an exclusive calibration process, DxO Optics Modules contain tens of thousands of data points about the intrinsic characteristics and flaws of each camera and lens. This database, unique in the entire world, allows DxO Optics Pro to automatically correct all the optical flaws in RAW and JPEG images – distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, lens softness – with an unrivaled level of quality. . . . read more

DXO ViewPoint review by Vincent Oliver at Photo-I: Quick and easy to use, choice of Keystoning corrections, but ultimately not enough unique corrections to make this worth having.

"DXO Viewpoint produced the required corrections, even on difficult subjects. Aligning the lines is simple, although the Anchor circle can be difficult to see, especially if you have a complex image with lots of detail.   Similar corrections were made on the same images in PaintShop Pro (a similar priced product) and although the DXO Viewpoint application produced a quick result, the results obtained in PSP were, on some images, noticeably better. The advantage Viewpoint has is it gives you the option to perform corrections in the Vertical or Horizontal plane rather than presenting a . . . read more

DXO Mark in depth analysis and explanation at the Luminous-Landscape: It works, and it is accurate, but you have to know what you're looking at and how to read it.

"At present, Canon cameras underperform on the Dynamic Range test or, more precisely, on dynamic range measured at low ISO settings. At high ISO, the Canon 1Dx actually has a better dynamic range than the D800(E), and the Canon 5D3 matches the D800(E) at high ISO. This confirms that newer Canon models like the 5D3 and the 1Dx are state-of-the-art as high ISO cameras.

But the problem with Canon (and all tested sensors except those with the latest and greatest Sony sensors) is that the . . . read more
