DxO has announced another big addition to its collection of Optics Modules. These are used in DxO’s raw processing software, including DxO PhotoLab, PureRaw, FilmPack and Viewpoint, to correct for lens distortion, chromatic aberration and other issues. This new update brings support for a number of new camera and lens combos, including the recently released Canon EOS R8 (buy here) and Canon EOS R50 (buy here) mirrorless cameras.

The total number of camera and lens combinations now contained within DxO’s Optics Modules database is over 82,000. This data has been collected over the last 20 years to bring the best possible optics correction available to their software. As well as correcting for distortion, they also fix chromatic aberration, and vignetting as well as sharpness correction for soft lenses.

In the DxO Lab, every lens is tested in order to understand geometric distortions. Curvature is corrected, addressing the barrel distortion often seen in wide-angle lenses, and the pincushion distortion often found in telephoto optics. Such precise corrections across the full focal range of a lens mean that DxO Optics Modules can even deliver more image area than competing software.

The complete list of cameras and lenses added in the current update is as follows:

All of the new DxO Optics Modules are available to download from within your DxO raw processing software. You can learn more about how DxO tests its camera and lens combinations in order to create its Optics Modules here. And here is the complete list of camera and lens combinations supported.

    Now that we have the possibility of using lens and cameras of different brands with adapters, I would like to see DxO let the users choose their own combinations. This is already possible with independent lens brands, after all.
