Follow-up on Barrel Correction with DxO Optics Pro

Posted by larrylohrman on March 13, 2007

Here’s follow up on the subject of correcting lens defects. My “curved wall” article I did recently was intended to highlight the issue of curved walls caused by barrel distortion. Many beginning RE photographers don’t seem to understand this subject. Several comments brought up the fact that there are more lens defects than just barrel distortion and DxO Optics Pro will not only automatically fix barrel distortion but other lens distortions like vignetting, color distortion and other lens defects automatically for you particular lens and camera body. I wanted to make sure everyone interested in DxO takes a look at Michael Reichmann’s reviews of DxO. Michael was a alpha tester of DxO and has great information and insight on these products. He has done two reviews, one in 2004 and one in 2005. DxO has a 21 day trial so you can see if you like the way it works. Since DxO has the ability to fix a whole folder of files at a time this could save you a bunch of time if your wide-angle lens has noticeable distortions.
