Lenses / Re: Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS Hitting Retailers
« on: June 20, 2014, 10:16:40 AM »
$125 off is better paying full price. Wonder what inside "100 Million EF Lens Gift Set"?

It's supposed to be a t-shirt, lens cloth and pin.  I'll find out when the lens ships any day now.  Buying the 16-35 f/4 IS was funded by selling the 16-35 f/2.8 II, and this is the first lens that I've ever pre-ordered.
Same here, sold the 16-35 II and first time pre-order. Waiting hopeful that it will arrive soon.

How come the new 16-35 is already for sale in Australia but not in rest of the world? Cant figure this one out…  :o
Is it always Australia that get new lenses first and sell them first?
Is it possible that there is a random choice of HQ who will get a new lens start first?
Camerashops in the Netherlands claim that - as official dealer - it is random. Sometimes shop A get them first, sometimes shop B. So maybe that also goes for National / International level?

In all of the major sporting events I have been to, this would not be possible. 
Hockey people are very easy going.  And while the World Cup is big, it's not THAT big of an event.   I'd give it a highly possible. 

BTW, how did you find it?  Looked pretty good on TV (but did not spot any 7Dmkii's in the crowd....).  Australia are playing Netherlands again in Soccer tonight.  I suspect Netherlands will reverse the Men's final result.

Hope so.
The played just a few times against eachother. Twice a drawn, one lost for the Netherlands. Never a win on Austrialia  :o

downloaded yesterday from HK site. Nice new GUI and more sliders to play with. Still it is a very rudimental software, born at least 5/7 years old. The real big plus vs lightroom and similar is optimization of canon lenses

WHen compared to ver.3 I notice a much faster loading of the high resolution image, BUT, when playing with sliders, you have to wait AT LEAST 2/3 seconds to see the effect applied to the image (5D3 RAW files). Maybe this is only a realease candidate?

I have a fast machine (win7 3930k ssd lots of memory etc.) so this thing is a bit weird. Anyone experiencing the same?

Same here. (win 8.1, AMD FX 9590 (8-core), SSD, Radeon R9 200)

That is just great! Beautiful. I wish I had this view in my garden. Yes, they are very shy - coming out in late night.
Wonderful that you were able to capture them. Beautiful those young ones.

Wonderful Menace!

Nice overview

It is a pity that in this version there is still not a "check for update" feature. Or, I did not find it.

No support for older bodies such as 1D4, 1Ds3, 5D2? Why on EARTH would they do such a phenomenal mistake? Is there ANY logic at all behind this? Like the engine doesn't work with older CR2's?

So upgrade your camera...

There is Always a legitimate reason for G.A.S.  ::)

Another 2-views (in one image displayed here) of the tool palette

I must say, I like the new version. You have to go through some small Gui changes and behaviour but this new version of DPP is moving into the right direction.

The tool palette - I placed 2 views of the palette next to eachother


I hope this is just the buggy beta version.

I managed to make up a 5D3-esque serial number, download and install DPP 4.0; but I only own a 5D2. And as a previous poster mentioned, I can't edit my 5D2 cr2s in this program. When I open it in the edit window, it is just a thumbnail of the RAW file with a symbol indicating 'uneditable'.

Canon specifically state support only for the EOS 1D C, 1D X, 5D III, and 6D.  Seems foolish, hopefully they make it fully backward compatible.

They may not.
During install it installed both the old version EOS utility and the new version. And...DPP 4.0 is installed next to the old version. I remember with previous version that it removed the old version.
It looks like the software is meant for EOS 1D C, 1D X, 5D III, and 6D and upwards.

My inspiration for photography

Very Cute, and they actually get better, mine are 20 & 15 now, they actually talk & make sense as well, mostly, sort of.
I hope so. One of mine is 12 now and doesn't make sense, mostly.... ::)
@Dylan, indeed very cute and wonderful captured.

So Viggo....what did you buy and why?
. I'm looking for the Tamrac, but it's not easy to find here, and it seems it's an older model. I have been looking at the Lowepro Urban Photo Sling 150, it seems like it would do. But I'm not in a big hurry and need the money for something else, so haven't pulled the trigger yet. Just sold my 85 today, so might buy something fun soon  ;D

the Netherlands
maybe they sent it abroad, don't know te extra costs for that....

Thanks, but 50 eur is quite expensive and I would have to pay shipping and 25% taxes in top it's twice what my backpack was, lol.
I thought the 50 euro would be an excellent price - I bought it a few years ago and it was much more expensive. But I understand it, especially with shipping and tax costs.
Hope you will find a bag that fits within your specs and like to hear what you choose and why.

I can confirm that DPP 4.0.0 does not support 7D CR2 :( But it can be installed in parallel with DPP 3.14.15 that still supports it.

That seems odd. Why would that be? Isn't every upgrade version compatible with CR2 files of existing official released cameras? That would be the 7D ::)
