Canon Professional Network Article About DPP 4.0 (support for new DSLRs will soon be added)

DPP 4.0

CPN Europe published a technical article about Canon’s new Digital Photo Professional 4.0, Inside Canon Digital Photo Professional 4.0:

Digital Photo Professional (DPP) version 4.0 is the latest release of Canon’s free RAW image management and editing software, and this incarnation is heralded as the first major update since the software was launched. Canon has responded to feedback from Digital Photo Professional users and incorporated feature requests and suggestions into version 4.0 to create a better looking package that offers a smoother, faster workflow. In this article CPN writer George Cairns examines how DPP 4.0 is better equipped to support your photographic workflow – as you import, browse and develop large numbers of RAW images – and investigates new features, such as the ability to make selective hue, saturation and luminance adjustments for eight colour gamuts.

The good news is that “support for more models will be added in due course“. When DPP 4.o was announced, the disappointment was big since for the time being DPP 4.0 (officially) supports only Canon’s latest full-frame cameras. However, you can already use DPP 4.0 with some newer Canon APS-C cameras (Rebel SL1/EOS 100D,  Rebel T4i/650D, EOS M, EOS 70D, Rebel T5i/EOS 700D) if you follow these simple instructions.

You can download DPP 4.0 here. Note: when you download DPP 4.0 you have to enter the serial number of your Canon DSLR. I downloaded DPP 4.0 from the EOS 5D Mark III support page using my EOS 70D’s serial number.

Canon Used Magic Lantern RAW Footage For An Advertisement (no joke)

Wow, that’s funny. It appears that Canon used footage shot with an EOS 5D Mark III and the Magic Lantern RAW Hack for an ad (video above).

While it’s well known that Canon doesn’t really contrast ML (as Sony or other companies would certainly do), never the less it’s somewhat weird that a firmware hack not officially supported by Canon was used by the company to produce an advertisement for their Bring It campaign.

ML RAW footage appears 2 times in the ad, after 15 secs (first video below) and then after 18 secs (second video below), you may miss it if you are not watching carefully.

Canon is for sure one of the most conservative brands on the globe, but as it appears also one of the most pragmatically oriented :-) Happy for the skilled ML hackers, they got the credit they deserve.

How Not To Do Camera Cleaning (aka: How To Destroy Your Camera In Few Steps)

Note: This is a fake tutorial – nothing shown in the video above is to replicate

Take the video above as humour or whatever you want to take it for, but in no case follow the instruction given in the video. It a perfect way to totally destroy your camera equipment. In the video a Canon EOS 5D Mark II is “cleaned” (= totally damaged).

Better to have a look at this cool accessory for removing sensor dust.
