Press release:


Bibble 5.1 Pro & Lite Now Available



Adding Heal & Clone tools, Perfectly Clear® One-Touch Image Optimization from Athentech, and much more.

Bibble Labs is proud to announce the availability of version 5.1 of Bibble Pro, and to introduce Bibble 5.1 Lite. This release includes Healing & Cloning, Perfectly Clear® one-touch image optimization, web gallery output, support for 10 additional RAW camera formats (including Panasonic G2 and G10, Sony a450, NEX-3 and NEX-5 and Olympus E-450 and E-600 and more) as well as several smaller features.


This release not only brings additional features and stability to our current Bibble 5 Pro users, but also introduces Bibble 5 Lite - a lower cost photographic workflow solution for those that don't need all the professional features of Bibble Pro, but still want the fastest workflow, RAW-level 3rd party plugins, and a complete selective editing framework. Bibble 5.1 is a free upgrade for all current Bibble 5 users.

Perfectly Clear ®: One Click Correction to Perfection
Perfectly Clear® is a one-touch image optimization algorithm created by Athentech, Inc which applies more that 13 synergistic corrections simultaneously. "Bibble is the fastest raw engine on the market - and in addition produces the most accurate and eye-pleasing raw renderings" says Brad Malcolm, President of Athentech, Inc. "I am delighted that our Perfectly Clear automatic correction is part of this exciting software. We look forward to saving Bibble users significant time in correcting their photos when they apply our powerful automatic image correction."


Heal & Clone Tools
The new Heal & Clone tools in Bibble 5 work in conjunction with Bibble 5's selective editing framework, allowing photographers to remove distracting elements from their images quickly and easily.

Healing Regions allow photographers to quickly remove small blemishes and spots left by sensor dust by blending away small imperfections quickly and easily. Cloning Regions copy image content from one portion of the image to cover over distracting or unwanted elements in photographs.


Bibble 5.1 Lite
Bibble 5.1 Lite offers much of the same speed, power and control as Bibble Pro, but without several of the pro-specific features at a fantastic price. Lite is designed for photo enthusiasts who demand top-quality RAW file conversion and fast, efficient and powerful image editing tools.

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…
