Software & Accessories / Digital Photo Professional Problem
« on: April 28, 2014, 04:41:53 AM »
Hi all,

I just installed version 3.14.15 of DPP on my MacPro (running OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks). The application works well until the moment I want to process my CR2 files into TIFF. The processing does not work, regardless wether I want to process one (cmd+d) or several (cmd+b) pictures. Earlier versions of DPP worked well under Mavericks. Unfortunately I erased the older version I used before the update to DPP 3.14.15 :-\ 
Has anyone a clue how to solve this problem?

Thanks,
Stefan

Software & Accessories / How do you get rid of debanding artifacts?
« on: October 05, 2012, 03:29:43 AM »
This might sound stupid but maybe someone can help me out: I shoot with a 7D and in RAW and even in broad daylight the pictures suffer from quite a lot of banding. I use NIK Dfine 2.0 in Photoshop CS6 to clean up noise and banding. The debanding produces strange spiky artifacts around edges though (see pictures below). Does anyone know how to avoid those or how to get rid of them?

Geotagging my photos is an old wish of mine but until now I have not found a convincing solution for Canon/Mac users.  :-\

From Canon's press release regarding the new accessories: «Compatible with the EOS-1D X, EOS 7D and new EOS 5D Mark III, the GP-E2 tags photos with longitude, latitude and altitude data as well as the direction in which the shot was taken, adding information to the EXIF file of the image.»

They state that the GP-E2 will be compatible with the 7D but on http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/gps_receivers/gps_receiver_gp_e2 they also say that half of its functions will NOT be available to 7d users: «†When the EOS 7D is used with the GP-E2 the following restrictions will apply: a) geotagging function will not work for movies while recording; b) geotagging features will not work for movies when using the Map Utility; c) electronic compass information and automatic time setting is not available; d) transmission via the hot shoe is not possible.» I'm not too bothered about the movie functions but the lack of compass information is rather disappointing – especially for a device with such a price tag (US: $390 / EUR: €279 / UK: £299.99 according to http://dancarrphotography.com/blog/)!

Are there any well functioning alternatives to the GP-E2 you guys know of? And perhaps a little less expensive than Canons' ?
