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.

A few weeks ago Canon released Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4.0, a completely new version of Canon’s well-known RAW conversion software. And the disappointment was big when it turned out that DPP 4.0 supports only Canon’s new full-frame bodies (EOS-1D X, EOS-1D C, EOS 5D Mark III, and EOS 6D). No support for the rest of us?

The trick is pretty simple, indeed. All you have to do is to change a value of the EXIF data. It works only for the above mentioned cameras because these cameras use Canon’s “Color Data Version = 10” (which is stored in the EXIF data). You need a tool to edit EXIF data (ExifTool by P. Harvey is a very good one). All you have to do is:
- select the CR2 file to modify
- click the “ExifTool direct” button
- Enter the following command: –Canon:CanonModelID=”EOS 5D Mark III”
- Ignore the warning
- Load the CR2 file to modify
- Go to “Your commands” tab
- In the “Parameters” box enter: -Makernotes:CanonModelID=”EOS 5D Mark III”
- Click the “Go” button
Your camera model is still stored in the EXIF, the parameter you are going to change is a specific one. It should also work if you enter “EOS 6D” or one of the other supported FF bodies. ExifTool can be downloaded here, a graphical interface for MAC OS X can be found here. A 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.
Is it worth the effort? Judge by yourself with the 2 images below, which show the results on a RAW file from an EOS M (image credit: T.K_Photo/Slrclub). The first one is DPP 3.14, the second one DPP 4.0. Head over to Slrclub to see full size images, but even from the samples below you can note that the file produced by DPP 4.0 has more details and is sharper.[SlrClub via DicaHub]
