Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4.1.1 Supports Canon EOS 7D Mark II

DPP

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).

Ever Thought of a Canon DSLR as Action Camera? EOS 7D Mark II Skydiving Auto-Focus Test

When you think action camera you think small gear like GoPro’s Hero cameras, right? Think again. There is people wanting to try the EOS 7D Mark II’s auto-focus while skydiving with the DSLR mounted on the helmet (found at Action Camera Rumors).

Christian Anderl and Wolfgang Lienbacher, both Austria based photographers, together with the Red Bull Skydive Team, got the point:

[…] if this Autofocus works while you’re jumping out of a plane with it, chances are high it will work everywhere

Curious? Watch the EOS 7D Mark II‘s auto-focus performance while falling down to earth at about 200km/h (124miles/h). The 7D2’s AF holds up to what you expect from a game changer. Once more Canon is showing what they do best: cranking out real tools for real photographers (you’re right Wade).

More about the story behind the video at Christian Anderl’s blog.
