DxO Labs has announced that DxO Optics Pro v4 for Windows can now process photos taken with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi/400D and Nikon D80.

A Mac version of DxO Optics Pro v4 is slated for release in late November 2006.

For the uninitiated, DxO Optics Pro v4 offers tools to combat distortion, lens softness and vignetting, plus it includes exposure and dynamic range controls, noise reduction, colour correction and RAW conversion. It comes in Starter, Standard and Elite versions. More information on the software is here. A list of supported cameras and lenses is here. A 21-day demo version is available here.
