DxO PureRAW 2: Better integration, more speed, and better Sony support

Recommended Posts

French software house DxO introduces a new version of DxO PureRAW. The main changes are practical enhancements to bring the power of DxO PureRAW into the workflow, as well as support for some Sony cameras:

  • Sony A7 IV
  • Sony A7R IIIA
  • Sony A7R IVA
  • Sony FX3

DxO PureRAW 2.0 focuses on the first and most important steps of RAW conversion:

  • Denoising
  • De-mosaicing
  • Optical corrections and
  • Sharpening

For further processing PureRAW passes the file as DNG to the RAW converter of your choice - e.g. Lightroom, alternatively as a developed JPEG.

One of the innovations concerns this workflow:

RAW files can be developed in the background directly from Lightroom or from Finder/Explorer via context menu. The results are then available in the form of DNGs for further processing in the file system or directly in Lightroom.

  1. RAW conversion can be triggered directly from the Windows File Explorer and macOS Finder, the user simply selects which algorithm should be applied and whether the output should be saved as JPG or DNG.
  2. The integration in Adobe Lightroom is similar: With one click, one or more files can be converted into pre-processed DNGs, which are available directly in the Lightroom library.

The second major difference from the previous version is good news for all owners of Fujifilm cameras with X-Trans sensor:

DxO PureRAW 2.0 now supports all RAW files from Fujifilm X-Trans cameras - not just current models, but for a total of 28 models all the way back to the Fujifilm X-Pro1, which was introduced 10 years ago.

Other changes include processing speed and support for HiDPI displays. In addition to the 28 Fujifilm cameras already mentioned, several cameras from other manufacturers have also been added, including…

  • Nikon Z9
  • Canon EOS R3
  • Sony A7 IV
  • Leica M10R and Leica SL2.

DxO PureRAW 2.0 is now available for download from the DxO Shop.

The full version costs 129 €, and the upgrade €79.

Here is a screenshot comparing the results of Lightroom to DxO PureRAW:

DxO PureRAW 2: Versatility, speed, and support for Fujifilm X-Trans cameras

A revolution for RAW files, DxO PureRAW 2 now allows users to pre-process images without leaving Lightroom and offers significant speed improvements. Support arrives for X-Trans cameras, offering Fujifilm photographers excellent image quality, and improved OS integration brings access via context menus.

Awarded the EISA Best Advanced Photo Software 2021 upon its release, DxO PureRAW set a new standard in RAW conversion through its pioneering use of artificial intelligence, establishing superior image quality at the beginning of the editing process — all without disrupting photographers’ existing workflows. DxO PureRAW 2 builds on this success, offering new features and greater efficiency.

New integrations offer a smoother workflow

DxO PureRAW 2 acquires two new integrations to make the workflow even smoother. In Lightroom Classic, users can right-click on a number of RAW files and have DxO PureRAW 2 process the images, creating newly enhanced Linear DNG files back into the same folder, without having to step outside of the application. Similar functionality is now integrated into Windows File Explorer and macOS Finder: simply right-click files and choose from the context menu to start the process.

Support for Fujifilm X-Trans cameras

DxO PureRAW 2 now supports RAW files from X-Trans sensors, bringing the significant benefits of DeepPRIME to Fujifilm XT photographers. Expect clean images, free of noise and artifacts, with deep, vibrant colors even at high ISO levels.

Faster and more efficient

DxO DeepPRIME receives a significant upgrade in speed. Not only more responsive, processing and export times have been improved — up to four times faster on Apple Silicon machines and up to 1.5 times faster on the latest Windows computers.

Support for HiDPI displays and a host of new camera/lens combinations

HiDPI displays are now supported, offering greater comfort to photographers on Windows machines.

Updates to DxO’s Optics Modules brings the total number of supported camera and lens combinations to more than 70,000.

Support for even more equipment

DxO PureRAW 2 supports 40 new cameras:

  • Canon EOS R3 (Canon RF) - Bayer Sensor
  • DJI Mavic 3 / Mavic 3 Cine (Drone) - Bayer Sensor
  • Fuji GFX 50S II (Fuji GFX) - Bayer Sensor

About DxO PureRAW 2

DxO PureRAW uses convolutional neural networks to perform the demosaicing and denoising processes of RAW image conversion simultaneously. Having been trained using millions of example images, the network is able to produce results that far exceed those made by human-designed algorithms, giving users Linear DNG files that have all of the flexibility of the original RAW file but with the best possible image quality in terms of color, noise, and fine detail. In addition, DxO PureRAW uses DxO’s highly regarded Optics Modules, a database of more than 70,000 lens and camera body combinations that provide the highest levels of lens sharpness, corrections to geometric distortions, vignetting, and aberrations.

Price and availability

DxO PureRAW (Windows and macOS) is now available for download on the DxO website (https://shop.dxo.com/) at the following price
