Completely useless software.  How does one use it?  All I see are tiny thumbnails of my raw images, and I cannot edit them  Help?  A simple tutorial anyone?
Hi tgara
Chances are, you are looking at images that are not created on a 5DII or 1DX, or any of the other qualified cameras that this software is specifically targeted at. From what I see, that's what this software release is specifically targeted at.
My 5DIII raw files work just fine. My 50D ones don't.
Just as advertised.


Yep, I'm a dope.  I was trying to look at RAWs made with my SL1, and of course the do not show.  RAWs from my 5D3 work fine.

However, I do think that Canon could sell quite a lot of mirrorless system cameras if they designed a good one.  They have a large base of users that appreciates the EOS system, but sometimes wants something smaller and lighter.

Absolutely.  That's why many of us have chosen the Rebel SL1!  It's not mirrorless, but it is certainly smaller and lighter than my 5D3 (hence the SL name).  It also works with nearly all my other Canon gear, including my EX270II flash and the GP-E2 GPS unit.

Just FYI, you can see a full-resolution jpeg of the samples by clicking on:  (点击此处查看大图)  located directly below each image.
-brought to my attention by Bryan over at TDP.
Doesn't look very sharp in the corners (photo of the white house and the church). Or am I a pixel peeper now and does it look better than the 16-35 f/2.8 II?

Those are VERY complex angled scenes and who knows where they placed the focus (which matters a LOT for scenes like that).

I imported the stairs photo into Aperture and turned on the focus point overlay.  Looks pretty good to me.

If Canon is after the customer who used to buy point and shoot cameras, then offering DSLR's in multiple colors makes a LOT of sense!

Well, judging by their most recent marketing ads, you are correct about that. 


Note all the stories are from women.   :-*

I have an SL1 and I love it.  A great alternative when I don't want to schlep the 5D3.

A new Class 10 UHS-1 32GB Sandisk SD card is about $30 on Amazon.  Buy a new one and move on.  At those prices, trying to fix a busted old one is simply stupid.  IMHO, of course.   8)

no GPS? seriously!  ???

Zactly what I was just wondering... 
Don't want to carry another device to geotag after a WiFi xfer, may as well just shoot the geotagged shot w the tablet.

+1 on the no GPS!!! Why Canon? Why?

Surprised not included.    Could it be either size or cost?

You can add GPS data to the images using your phone's GPS and the CameraWindow app.  Much more power efficient and less costly this way.


Lenses / Re: Canon EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS STM Announced
« on: August 22, 2013, 10:23:11 AM »
How does STM compare with USM? (Not in technical details, but in how it performs)

As a practical matter, STM makes for faster and quieter autofocusing.  But that is only one aspect of this new lens as compared to its predecessor.  The internal/rear focusing, nonrotating front element, upgraded CPU and electronics, and full manual focus are nice improvements IMHO.  The closest focus distance is nearly a foot less than the previous version (2.8 ft vs 3.6 ft).  Plus the filter size is the same as the previous version (58mm), so I don't need to buy new filters.  And despite all these improvements, the new version weighs 15 grams less than its predecessor (375g vs. 390g).   The images it produces will tell the whole story, but on the surface, it looks like this lens was improved in every way that really matters.

Your gear won't fit, that bag is too small.  I had the 100AW and it would not fit my 7D and forget about a grip..  The 100AW is designed for the smaller Rebel series with no grips..  Get the 300AW instead.

Watch the 1978 Movie Midnight Express, and reconsider what you did.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Two malfunctions on a new 5DIII
« on: August 06, 2013, 11:30:41 AM »
Sounds like the position sensor is not working.

I'll bet the orientation-linked AF point function doesn't work either.  Orientation-linked AF point function lets the camera move the AF point to a pre-selected point depending on whether the camera is held vertically or horizontally.  It also relies on the position sensor.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Dpreview tested the 100D
« on: July 29, 2013, 02:04:25 PM »

Tried the 100D in the shop as an alternatieve body for hiking. But I was not satisfied by the IQ. I was disappointed about Digic 5 (I thought the IQ will be better than the IQ of my old 60D and 7D...

I find this hard to believe.  I have an SL1 (100D), and had a 7D before getting my 5DIII.  I can say without hesitation that the image quality of the SL1 is just as good, and may be better, than the 7D.

Maybe the unit you played with wasn't set properly, or you were doing something wrong.  Those "test" cameras are often set to crazy settings by the general public.

I would ask that if people are going to "name names" of their favorite photos, please also post a website, if possible.  I, for one, would be interested in seeing their work.


I enjoy landscape photography, and one of the most inspirational photographers for me is Adam Barker.  I find his landscape shots absolutely stunning.


EOS Bodies / Re: How good is 70D AF system compared to 50D?
« on: July 10, 2013, 12:50:37 PM »
I really just want to upgrade for autofocus, so anyone that is familiar with the 7D's system, how good will 70D be compared to 50D?

Just saw in the 70D manual it only has 3 focus types, single point, zone and all points. That's lame. No expansion.

If you want those AF features, why not get a 7D?  I can attest that the 7D AF system is superb, once you get the hang of it.
