Iridient Press Release
Iridient Digital releases Iridient Developer 2.3 for Mac OS X
Pacific Grove, CA, October 9, 2013 -- Iridient Digital, Inc. has released Iridient Developer 2.3, an update to my photo editing software for Mac OS X.
The Iridient Developer 2.3 update can now be downloaded here: http://www.iridientdigital.com/products/rawdeveloper_download.html
This release greatly expands support for RAW image information based lens corrections to numerous new cameras including most all recent models from Canon, Sony, Olympus, Fujifilm and Panasonic. The automatic chromatic aberration correction algorithm has also been greatly improved and should give better, more consistent results under difficult image conditions. Camera manufacturer RAW metadata and DNG lens profile (LCP) based chromatic aberration corrections can now be applied independently of lens distortion corrections.
Sigma RAW processing has been greatly improved for both the latest Merrill models as well as earlier generation Foveon sensor cameras. Numerous improvements throughout for Foveon processing including improved overall color noise reduction while offering even better fine detail reproduction in many cases, better deep shadow tonal gradations, better highlight recovery especially for older generation models, much better handling of super saturated colors especially with older Foveon sensors, reduced color "speckle" noise and in many cases even faster processing speeds!
RAW image support has been added for the following new cameras:
Canon: PowerShot G16 and S120
Olympus: OM-D E-M1
Sony: NEX-5T and ILCE-3000
Samsung: Galaxy NX
This release also includes several bug fixes, various overall performance improvements and updated default camera profiles and settings for some cameras (particularly the Nikon D800(E) and D600).
