Exactly what I needed! - Thank you, DxO! You have provided exactly what I needed. I rely upon lens corrections for my Canon EOS M and 22mm f2.0 lens–vignetting and edge distortion ruined an otherwise fast, cheap, decent quality lens, but there wasn’t an option in Photos to correct those issues easily. The Optical Corrections in this extension ALONE are worth the price. Took photos that were otherwise unusable and made them worth keeping. Beyond that, the noise reduction included in this DxO extension far outpaces what is built into Photos with a well balanced algorithm in two modes: High Quality and Prime. HQ is what I seem to use–takes less time process the photos–but if you have some very grainy, noisy photos, Prime has a good chance of saving them. And, if you want, there is also a haze removal which works well, if only in limited situations. The Smart Lighting feature is hit or miss for me. White Balance is similar to what’s included natively in the Photos App. Regardless, this is precisely what I needed. Thank You, DxO! If you are reading this, DxO and Apple, and are not in the process of doing so already, please consider adding a feature for batch processing with extensions. Processing with DxO for each photo, one at a time, is a bit painful if you have a good number of photos to go through. Thanks!

Review by Dkunesh

Only spordically recognizes my lens and camera - Only occasionally will the software recognize my Panasonic Lumix GX-7 and either my Panasonic 12-35mm 2.8 or 20mm 1.7 lenses. Both the camera and the lenses are recognized on the DxO website. Every so often an image will recognize my setup, but the very next picture taken seconds apart will not recognize. Some sort of bug which renders the software useless.
