Press Release: Bibble Labs releases version 4.4 Update with support for Canon 5D & 1D Mark II N. Includes new Fill Light control and improved sharper output.

Austin Texas (October 17th, 2005) – Bibble Labs today announced availability of version 4.4 of its popular Raw Workflow software. Now supporting over 60 of the most popular DSLR and prosumer cameras, this update includes support for the new Canon 5D and 1D Mark II N cameras, as well as the Minolta 5D, A200 and Pentax *ist DL.

Using Bibble’s integrated Photoshop plug-in, users of older versions of Photoshop including 7.0 and CS can now open raw images from the latest cameras without having to pay for a costly upgrade.

The new “Full Light” Feature allows photographers to easily brighten overly deep shadows and reveal detail in the dark areas of high contrast photos. Combined with the existing “highlight recovery” feature, photographers now have two powerful yet easy to use tools to enhance their digital images .Further refinements to the raw processing engine results in sharper output then ever before

Other new features include the ability to display and export GPS position information embedded in files as well as the ability to shoot tethered on the Macintosh with all supported DSLR’s.

Bibble 4.4 is a free update to all owners of any prior version of Bibble 4.

New Cameras:

Canon 5D, 1D Mark II N
Pentax *ist DL
Konica/Minolta A200, 5D

Fill Light (Shadow Recovery)

Since the introduction of our highlight recovery feature, we’ve received many requests for a similar tool that would help restore shadow detail. Using a single slider, it is now possible to brighten the darkest portions of your images, while leaveing the overall balance of the image the same. Like th HR tool, the fill light tool only modifies a portion of the image’s histogram making it easy to quickly get the results you desire without worrying about blowing out the rest of the image.

Sharper Output

Today’s newer cameras are featuring strong anti-aliasing filters which result in images with fewer artifacts. With this in mind, we’ve provided a new option to disable Bibble’s built in artifact reduction. This is now the default and will result in sharper images with less color moiré when compared to previous versions of Bibble. Older images might exhibit slight more noise and/or an occasional artifact. Should this occur, enable the artifact reduction routines from the sharpen/noise palette.

GPS Info

Bibble now display and exports GPS position info embedded in source file.

Tethering Updated.

In addition to adding tethering support for the newest Nikon and Canon Cameras, 4.4 once again support tethered shooting on the Macintosh with canon cameras.

Availability:

Bibble is available in both “Pro” and “Lite” versions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux.
