Paris, France—July 10, 2007 – DxO Labs announces today that recently released DxO Optics Pro v4.5 adds support for the Canon EOS 1D Mark III and Nikon D40x Digital Single-Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras and debuts support for fish-eye zoom lenses by adding the Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fish-Eye AF 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 lens to its library of available lens modules.
DxO Optics Pro is the award-winning digital image enhancement tool incorporating revolutionary optics, noise and exposure corrections in an easy-to-use, feature rich application for Mac and PC users. DxO Optics Pro software improves the image quality of Digital SLR cameras and advanced digicams.
Support for the Tokina Fish-Eye lens begins the inclusion of more of these creative types of lenses into the DxO Lens Correction Module library. The Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fish-Eye AF 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 lens is a full-frame fish-eye that gives photographers a 180° field of view – a dramatic fish-eye effect – and allows the photographer to capture a view that’s wider than the human eye can see.
“We are very excited to add support in DxO Optics Pro for this exciting lens by Tokina. Properly supporting full-frame fisheye lenses is a challenge in itself and doing so for the first time with this Tokina fish-eye zoom lens was a groundbreaking achievement by our technical team. This confirms that DxO Optics Pro remains the undisputed leader when it comes to enhancing the performance of Digital SLR lenses through software,” says Luc Marin, vice president of the DxO Labs Photography Business unit.
Support for the Canon EOS 1D Mark III is available in the Elite edition of DxO Optics Pro v4.5 and support for the Nikon D40x is available in both Standard and Elite editions. The Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fish-Eye AF 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 lens is supported in both Standard and Elite versions of DxO Optics Pro v4.5.
