Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4.0.1 Available For Download

 Digital Photo Professional
The new Canon DPP 4.x

The version 4.0.1 of Canon’s Digital Photo Professional is available since 8/7 but I totally missed it. A minor upgrade with bug fixes.

Fixes a phenomenon in which when a recipe for other images is applied to images that do not support lens aberration compensation, there are cases that these images can no longer be correctly displayed.

DPP 4.0.1 can be downloaded here.

A note. DPP 4 officially supports only Canon’s latest full-frame cameras (EOS-1D X, EOS-1D C, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D). Canon announced that support for more cameras will be added in the future. In the meantime, you can use DPP 4.x  on other cameras by applying this simple trick. RAW files from the following DSLRs can then be processed with DPP 4.x: Rebel SL1/EOS 100D, Rebel T4i/650D, EOS M, EOS 70D, Rebel T5i/EOS 700D.

A New EF 24mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens Coming From Canon?

EF 24mm f/2.8 Pancake Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens

Last week a rumor surfaced suggesting Canon may announce a new EF 24mm pancake lens. A possible f/2.8 aperture is murmured/assumed. Moreover, a new wide angle zoom might also be on the radar. Speculations point to the previously rumored 15-85 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. Finally, a no further specified standard zoom is mentioned.

The news comes from CR, where the rumor is classified as plausible and coming from a new source.

Most Canon EOS 7D Underwater Housing Are Discontinued

Canon EOS 7D

I always love to hear from the underwater photography community (thanks SevetS). I was myself a scuba diver a long time ago (when it was very expensive to shot underwater)

One more sign that the EOS 7D replacement is coming very soon. Several retailers have discontinued EOS 7D underwater housings. Check it for yourself:
