Digital Photo Professional 4

Canon DPP 4.x

Canon has released an updated version of its popular Digital Photo Professional 4 (DPP 4) RAW processing software, which expands the support of its DSLRs to include EOS 1200D, EOS 60Da and EOS 60D as well as its PowerShot G7 X and PowerShot G1 X Mark II premium expert compacts and EOS M2 and EOS M Compact System Cameras…

The new update – version 4.3.0 – also incorporates two critical fixes, including a phenomenon in which the picture style set on the camera is not transferred to Digital Photo Professional properly and a phenomenon in which the copy and paste command using keyboard shortcuts cannot be used for the folder name.

“As part of Canon’s ongoing development of its Digital Photo Professional software, regular updates and fixes keep it up to date with our end users. Canon always listens carefully to customer feedback and this latest update is an example of that,” commented Mike Burnhill, Canon Europe’s Professional Imaging Technical Support Programme manager.

Canon PowerShot G3 X Review – Photography Blog

The new Canon PowerShot G3 X is a solid super-zoom camera for enthusiast photographers, offering a wealth of options for shooting both stills and video, excellent image quality, speedy auto-focusing, intuitive and configurable handling, and solid construction. Unfortunately, it’s rather ham-strung by the strange omission of a built-in viewfinder – trying to hold the Canon PowerShot G3 X at arm’s length whilst using the full extent of the 25x zoom lens results in too many misses due to camerashake.

Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM and EF 35mm f/1.4L Mark II coming very soon [CW4]


Russian certification authority Novocert has registration document for two Canon lenses: the already rumored EF 35mm f/1.4L Mark II, and a lens for the EOS M system, the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM. The latter never surfaced in a rumor.

The EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM could be Canon’s next kit lens for the EOS M series cameras. Back in May we had a rumor pointing in this direction, though an 18-55mm IS STM Mark II lens was then mentioned as the new kit lens. However, I would be surprised if the EF-M 15-45mm is not going to be the next EOS M kit lens. Though, an f/6.3 at the telephoto end is a bit disappointing.

The announcement of both lenses should be matter of weeks. In the past, states Digicame Info, the event of a registration at a certification authority usually anticipated the announcement for a few weeks. So, most likely these are the two lenses that will be announced August 14, 2015.

Canon patent for lubricating body cap


The Canon patent describes a body cap that keeps the lens mount of a DSLR lubricated. To be honest I can’t grab the utility of this, except that it could concern the electric contacts (keeping them clean) . Since we get this patent literature translated by a machine, I am never sure the translated words are any helpful.
