Canon See Impossible Explained

Canon See Impossible Explained

From AdWeek
“As smartphones continue to erode sales of cameras and equipment, traditional brands are building digital platforms that double as marketing assets. Today, Canon launched the multiyear “See Impossible” campaign, shifting the marketing focus away from products and onto customers’ stories.

Canon’s campaign centers around a new microsite, which houses a series of digital videos that highlight how customers use a range of products. One 45-second clip shows how an author used the technology to self-publish her book. Going forward, Canon will expand the site’s content to include submissions from consumers and clients.”

Canon Professional Network Publishes DPP 4.0 Preview

Canon Professional Network Publishes DPP 4.0 Preview

Canon has launched Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4.0, the first sweeping overhaul of Canon’s RAW processing software since its launch. The latest version of DPP – available for download at the end of June – has been updated with a raft of key changes to satisfy the most demanding of digital photographers.

Canon software engineers – having the unique advantage of being able to directly harness the power of the Canon sensors, DIGIC processors and lenses – have made the all-new Digital Photo Professional 4.0 a much faster, more dynamic, linear and feature-packed image editing software solution, thanks to the ability to fully utilise 64-bit architecture. The latest version of DPP has been designed and developed from the ground up, tailored to the workflows of professional and high-end amateurs to help them realise the key EOS System concepts of speed, ease of use and high image quality.

New, improved Canon algorithms have been optimised to make the most of the wealth of information delivered by the camera sensors, while productivity has been increased thanks to improved speed of RAW image display and developing that makes real-time image adjustment a reality.

DPP 4.0: ALL-NEW KEY FEATURES

  • Faster, real-time adjustments.
  • Improved RAW file workflow.
  • Better, more approachable user interfaces.
  • Compatible with 64-bit native environments.
  • Colour adjustments for specific colour gamuts.
  • Improved highlight recovery provides expanded tonality.
  • Improved shadow recovery function.
  • Support for movie playback.
  • Auto Lighting Optimizer can be applied to JPEG images.
  • Better integration with EOS Utility.

DPP 4.0 & EOS Utility 3.0 Available for Download

DPP 4.0 & EOS Utility 3.0 Available for Download

Download links to the new EOS Utility and DPP have been posted by Canon Australia. You must enter a serial number from a “compatible body” to download the programs. For the moment, only the latest full frame bodies qualify for the free download.

Compatible Bodies

  • EOS 1D C
  • EOS 1D X
  • EOS 5D Mark III
  • EOS 6D

I had expected that all EOS DSLR users would be able to use the program, but also assumed there were some features that would only be available to “compatible body” users. Unfortunately, it looks like I was mistaken. DPP 4 will not open RAW files from incompatible bodies. So if you do not own one of Canon’s current full-frame bodies, you’re stuck using version 3.x instead.

From the viewpoint of someone who uses a 5D Mark III as a primary body and a 7D as a backup, I find this to be very inconvenient. It means that I have to keep two versions of DPP installed on my computer if I want to use the latest features while still being able to edit my backup body RAW files.

I hope Canon reconsiders this new software strategy. [Sean]

DPP 4.0 will only be compatible with a 64-bit OS, such as Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, as well as Mac OS X 10.8 and 10.9.
