DxO Labs announces 25% discount on Optics Pro and adds over 80 new lens modules

DxO Labs has taken the wraps off over 80 new lens modules for DxO Optics Pro, and is celebrating their 5th Birthday with a 25% discount during May. See below for the press release and full details:

Paris, France – 15th May 2009 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of 83 new DxO optical correction modules, adding to the 100 modules recently published. These additions now extend DxO Optic Pro’s range to include over 1,200 modules covering all types of lenses on the market: fisheyes, wide-angles, zooms, and super telephotos, and most major brands (Canon, Konica-Minolta, Nikkor, Pentax, Samsung, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, Tokina, Carl Zeiss). Over the last 5 years, DxO Labs has been analyzing camera/lens combinations so as to provide corrections that are specific to each lens. For example, DxO Optics Pro corrects the geometric distortion and compensates for the vignetting of wide-angle lenses; it increases the sharpness and corrects the chromatic aberration for telephoto shots. To achieve such results, DxO Labs’ engineers and expert photographers have interpreted hundreds of thousands of images representing all possible configurations of the cameras in use (focal length, aperture, sensitivity, etc.).
DxO Optics Pro software is the unique solution that simply and automatically enhances each photo with respect to the camera, the lens and the shooting conditions.
DxO Optics Pro is also a powerful RAW converter that delivers amazing results in terms of noise-reduction, contrast correction, and color fidelity at all ISO settings (right up to 25 600 ISO) for a wide range of digital cameras.

To celebrate DxO Optics Pro’s 5th birthday, DxO Labs offers a 25% discount for the entire month of May.

This 25% discount also applies to the DxO FilmPack software which allows digital photographers to rediscover the styles, colors, and grains of the most famous silver-halide films. Prices and availability during May

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
