DxO Labs has made available a public beta version of its soon-to-be released
DxO Optics Pro version 3.0 software. DxO Optics Pro V3.0 automatically enhances
images produced by Digital Single-Lens Reflex (Digital-SLR) cameras and their
lenses with revolutionary optics, noise and lighting corrections packed in an
all-new, easy-to-use feature rich application.



Serious photographers worldwide are invited to download and test-drive DxO Optics
Pro V3.0 from the DxO Labs Web site (http://www.dxo.com) and provide feedback
on all aspects of this landmark application.



DxO Labs' unique, automatic optical corrections are a core part of DxO
Optics Pro V3.0. Based on sophisticated models of camera and lens performance,
DxO Optics Engine together with the associated lens correction modules automatically
removes lens distortion, vignetting, lens softness and lateral chromatic aberration.
Corrections can be accomplished automatically with no user interaction required
even though the corrections required can differ greatly from one image to the
next.



Based on a set of unique algorithms developed by DxO Labs and on precise camera
sensor modelization, the all-new DxO Noise Engine automatically achieves a reduction
of up to two stops in image noise while preserving maximum detail. For example,
an image shot at 1600 ISO and processed by DxO Noise Engine will present a noise
level equivalent to an image shot at 400 ISO.



A brand new DxO technology included in this release, DxO Lighting is a unique
local exposure and dynamic range optimizer. Automatically replicating analog
film techniques known as "dodging and burning", DxO Lighting Engine
brings out shadow detail of digital image files while preserving highlights,
textures, colors and a natural look.

The colors of the kayaks looked particularly bright, in contrast to the gray surroundings. It appeared as though the sun was focusing on the only...
