DxO update provides its latest corrections to its entire software range
PhotoLab 5, PureRAW 2, ViewPoint 3, FilmPack 6 and Nik Collection 5 users can now all use the DxO collection of over 75,000 camera-lens combinations.
DxO is not the only company to create lens correction profiles, but the difference is that they are tailored to specific camera and lens combinations. DxO claims this approach assesses the true capture field at 100% without cropping generic lens profiles and with up to 10% more pixels in the final result
DxO’s profiles also use graduated sharpness across the entire frame to match the sharpness characteristics of each lens and counteract edge softness. In addition to correcting regular lateral chromatic aberrations (color fringing), DxO corrections are also designed to correct longitudinal fringing (bokeh).

This update also adds support for a number of new cameras and lenses. New supported cameras include the DJI Mini 3 Pro, Fujifilm X-H2S, Nikon D810A and Nikon Z30.
New lenses supported in this update include Canon RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM, Canon RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6, 3 IS STM, the Fuji 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR (also with profiles for use with the TC 1.4x WR and TC 2x WR teleconverters), Panasonic Lumix Leica DG Vario Summilux 25-50mm f/1.7 ASPH, Sony E 15mm f/1.4G, Sony FE 24-70mm f/. 8 GM II, Sony FE PZ 16-35mm f/4G, Sony E PZ 10-20mm f/4G, Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM.
The turnaround time for support for new cameras and lenses is proving quite fast, especially for the new Nikon Z30 and Canon’s new RF-S lenses. DxO’s corrections are effective on pro-level equipment, but the quality gain is even more noticeable with low-end camera equipment.
This is not a major version update, so it is free for all existing users, and you should be prompted to download the update the next time you use your software.
