Bibble software gets new SLR support

Bibble's raw-image editing software now supports multiple new SLR cameras, including the Canon EOS-1D Mark III among others.

Bibble Labs on Friday released a new free upgrade to its software for editing raw images from higher-end digital cameras, adding support for the Canon EOS-1D Mark III and several other models.

The new version 4.9.8 of Bibble Pro and Bibble Lite supports ordinary raw files from the high-end Canon SLR (single-lens reflex) camera as well as its new "sraw" format that's half the resolution and one quarter the file size of regular raw images.

The new version also supports the high dynamic range of the new Fujifilm Finepix S5 Pro, the lower-end Nikon D40x and Olympus E-410 and E-510 SLRs, the Olympus' ultrazoom SP500 UZ and the Panasonic FZ8.

The company sells Bibble Pro for $129.95 and Bibble Lite for $69.95. Bibble Pro includes the Noise Ninja noise-reduction filtering software, features to write captions in metadata and support for multithreaded computers. Customers also get a free upgrade to the forthcoming version 5.
