DxO Announces New Camera and Lens Profiles for Photolab 6, and 369 Optics Modules

 In its July update, DxO is releasing 369 new Optics Modules.

What Is PhotoLab 6?

PhotoLab 6, is a comprehensive raw processing solution, and it's something I've been using for some time because of the superior results over Lightroom and others. Also available from DxO Labs is PureRAW 3, a raw image preprocessor that incorporates noise reduction.

Also available is Nik Collection 6, a suite of renowned creative plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, and now, Affinity Photo. In addition, they also publish DxO ViewPoint which enables photographers to achieve what they claim is geometric perfection in images. Then there's the popular DxO FilmPack which provides authentic renderings of classic film stocks as well.

What Do the 369 New Optics Modules Do?

The Optics Modules created in DxO’s laboratory are unique in that they apply lens sharpness by measuring each lens’ performance from center to periphery, and at all focal lengths across a zoom's range. Whereas, other software packages apply a single generic correction. The modules download each time you open a photograph with a different camera and lens combination.

The DxO Optics Module Installer

The preciseness of the data held in these modules is why it is a program popular with professionals. The software accurately removes chromatic aberrations and provides an intelligent answer to lens vignetting that takes the varying focal lengths into consideration, thus enabling the photographer to keep more of the picture inside the frame; programs such as Lightroom often apply an unwanted crop.

When I started using Photolab two years ago, it was daunting, almost overwhelming, but its capabilities were obvious. The way I use the program has changed as I've learned more about it (of course). It's amazing. Two caveats: first, on a PC, Photolab needs lots of RAM and processing power; second, the organizer function is weak. I look forward to organizer improvements and the inevitable AI-features found in stand-alones like Narrative and Aftershoot.
