Canon Asks CPS Users About Feeling Appreciated and How Exciting Its Products Are

Image courtesy by Photography Bay

Canon is doing a user survey (source: Photography Bay). It seems the company is responding to the criticism (by some people) of not listening to users.

A survey was sent around to users of Canon Professional Services. Questions are about cameras users owned in the past, or about user’s feelings about other brands.

Btw, I do not think Canon is not listening to their users. Maybe the ignore the more gadget oriented folks, but for sure they know what photographers want when it comes to mundane stuff like weather sealing, a highly advanced AF, and industry leading high ISO performance. Making real tools for real photographers. Yeah, I mean the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.

Canon DPP 4.x

Thanks for the tip Simon.

Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4.1.1 is listed on Canon EOS 7D Mark II’s software page. This is the first APS-C DSLR that is officially supported by DPP 4.x.

DPP 4.1.1 officially only supports the new EOS 7D Mark II and Canon’s recent full-frame bodies, (EOS-1D XEOS-1D C, EOS 5D Mark III, and EOS 6D). However, with an easy trick you can use DPP 4.x also on some of Canon’s recent APS-C cameras (see here how to).
