Like many I chose to read through numerous photographic sites to see what applications were on the market to remove curvature from the use of a wide angle lens. Having stumbled across DxO Optics Pro 8 I decided to download the trial version. It was the answer I had been looking for, within moments I had converted some of the photos taken on a recent visit to Kimmeridge bay, and now had enhanced and level horizoned images.
Unless you have Photoshop CS3 or higher this is the ideal tool to straighten horizons, portraits and architecture shots as well as image enhancement.
Using a 10.5mm lens the distortion is very high, and I don't always want to have the mid point of the viewfinder level with the horizon, with this you don't have to.
You get a less complicated set of tools and an advanced user option, so the beginners aren't overwhelmed with options to use. The list of camera and lens combinations is excellent, and unless you have a lens from some unheard of manufacturer you should be covered, all you have to do is download the appropriate module for the camera and lens/es you use and off you go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very Good … But Missing Key Features 10 Mar. 2013
By Timothy J. Mccarthy - Published on
Last year I tried DxO Optics Pro 7.5, and tested it head-to-head with Adobe Camera RAW 6.7 and Nikon Capture NX2. I posted my review on Amazon’s Optics Pro 7 page, but in a nutshell, I liked NX2 the best. One of the DxO reps suggested I try version 8, and I’m glad he did. Version 8 has a lot of upgrades that vastly changes and improves the way your RAW files are processed. Make sure your white balance is set right, and then you can adjust your exposure and “smart lighting” either using their defaults, or manually. Then you can tweak your colors, tone, noise, sharpening, and select or deselect the corrections that DxO has for your equipment. With very little time or effort, I found I could produce images that were consistently better than NX2. I do landscape photography and upload my finished images to stock photography sites, who are very picky about what they’ll accept. I believe Optics Pro has increased my acceptance rates due to cleaner, sharper, more vivid images.

There is one “gotcha” to be aware of. After you install the program – and again after downloading any updates – you *MUST* set the program to run as “Administrator”, or it will eventually hang and not process your changes.

Why only 4 stars? Because this package is missing two important tools that prevent it from being a stand-alone image processing system. It has no red-eye correction tool, and no clone tool. So, if you’re using a flash with people, or want to eliminate small flaws or distracting objects from your shot, you have to save your work and then finish up with another package, like Photoshop Elements. These are simple tools found on even the cheapest editing packages, and really should be included here.

If you’re interested, you can – and should – go to the DxO website and download their free trial version. Make sure you get the right one: there is a “Standard” for most cameras (like Nikon’s DX bodies) and “Elite” for pro-level cameras (Nikon FX bodies).

4.0 out of 5 stars Works.. became my "go to" RAW converter 26 Feb. 2013
By Timothy Veenstra - Published on
32 bit Vista setup.

As a RAW converter, it is far superior to what I was using before, which was the software that came with my camera. Since I take all my shots in RAW, it has become my only converter. My version of Photoshop does not do RAW images..

The color correction and ability to fix horizens/parallels while still a RAW image are things I never had before.
The ability to create my own presets is something I've never been able to do before too.

In old jpgs I have laying around, sometimes I like what it does, sometimes not, but I'll look into it. It's been so powerful for me that I've been able to save a few photos I took years ago but never was able to get results that I saw when I took the shot. That, to me, was worth the price alone. lemontinphotography

Like any software, I wish some things were different. But it's possible that I can change the things I do not like and haven't figured out how to do it yet.

The one thing that I dislike is that the disk you buy really doesn't seem to have any software on it. It's basically a glorified link to the website. DxO is hardly alone in this and it's one reason I buy very little software for photography. My photo computer does NOT got online. When I buy a disk, I want a disk with it all right there. But I understand updates, and peoples ability to get the software w/o paying for it are real concerns for any company. In this case, the promise of the software was enough for me to take my laptop to a free wifi place and hookup to get it going. It was worth the effort.
1.0 out of 5 stars Wastes a lot of time because of issues! 17 Nov. 2013
By Serious Photo Enthusiast - Published on
Verified Purchase
Crashes the computer. Requires complicated readjustment, and uninstall, and reinstall, over and over for no apparent reason. Has bugs. This is really overpriced and overhyped. It works, but only if you have the time (and a lot of it to waste) and inclination to deal with the bugs and the pesty appeal by the manufacturer to sell you more stuff and now an upgrade (for an additional fee).

It seems that they are more concerned with selling than fixing the bugs.

It's funny though, I have NEVER had a problem with Photoshop (the pro version).

1.0 out of 5 stars Be Careful that it has Your EXACT Combo or You'll be SOL 26 Aug. 2013
By Craig Rutten - Published on
This product has many great reviews, including a rave one from my favorite camera guru, Ken Rockwell.

But, I knew that if it does not have your EXACT camera body and lens test results, the performance may not match the cheaper Photoshop Lightroom.

After repeated searches of their data base for my combo, I found what appeared to be it - it's hard to interpret their charts.

But, to be sure, I emailed their Support to find out that NO, they do not have what is considered to be the best buy in Camera bodies, The Nikon D7100, and the best buy in Nikon lens, the 18-200 VR II.

They've got to move into the twenty-first century if they want to survive.
