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).

All EOS 7D Mark II coverage here. The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is shipping in the US:
