DPP 4.0 & EOS Utility 3.0 Available for Download
« on: June 18, 2014, 11:41:36 AM »

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]


Download DPP & EOS Utility Here


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.

That 3.14 upgrade is very vague.... they don't mention what to expect...just that it will be updated.

Nice of Canon to hobble the actual utility of their downloads. Why did I bother paying for a 7D?

Maybe some hacking is in order?

This is bizarre.

So thankful for Lightroom.

Wow.  Locking out software for NEW hardware isn't a new concept, but this update had high hopes for Canon and their brand.  This could have made me less reliant on Adobe products for my photo usage, but that does not look like it will be the case.  Canon has firmly planted themselves as a hardware manufacturer with this restriction.

I love Adobe Camera RAW, but I'm on CS6.  Haven't yet moved to the Creative Cloud subscription model, but looking like the true options for my needs are thin at best.  Relying on old technology moving forward isn't going to cut it.  Watching their keynote now - may be buying really soon...

Canon has deliberately locked me, as an owner of a 5DII and 7D, out of its own software.  I can't imagine that there are specific firmware features of the new cameras that would rely on a specific version of DPP.  Even if this were the case, other processing software provides updates for specific cameras.

This is clearly a deliberate decision, probably by the marketing team.

In any case, I have Lightroom, which I've had since day one (actually before then, with Raw Shooter).
If gear matters: 5DsR, 6D, M3, Samyang 14/2.8, EF 24-105/4, EF 35/2.0IS, EF 50/2.5 macro, EF 85/1.8, EF 200/2.8II, EF 400/5.6, EF-M 11-22/4-5.6, EF-M 18-55/3.5-5.6, EF-M 55-200/4.5-6.3, Ext 1.4x, Lifesize conv, Ext tube EF25, 270EX, Godox XPro-C, TT685-C and TT600

well it does say "AT LAUNCH"

I'm sure they wanted to limit the initial launch rollout and bug fixing.  Especially on a re-write.

i suspect they'll add further support as time goes on - Alot of us are in the same predicament.  not to mention historical archives of CR2 files from as far back as the original Rebel and 10D for me.

it could be that the special algorithms in the CR2 files are different between crop and sensor cameras - who knows.  it's curious they only support full frame for now.

however I'm seriously pleased by what i see out of this - it is a dramatic improvement in speed over the orginal 3.x DPP.

Looking forward to more cameras being added in short order.

Actually it's probably more limiting the scope of the rollout after a mass re-write of the application.

Speaking from experience, you atypically don't release to 50 million customers in one shot for a major re-write. 

That would be idiotic.

this way they can work out the major kinks, and release on a more sane approach.

I don't use DPP, but have been using EOS Utility regularly for several years. I regularly shoot with a 5D3, with a 5D for backup.

The version of EOS Utility that is compatible with Windows 7/8 (I still use  7) won't recognize the 5D. So, in order to maintain a ready backup solution, I have to have a virtual machine installed on my laptop (I use VMware Player), under which I have Windows XP installed, along with the latest Windows XP-compatible version of EOS Utility. Very tedious setup.

I really don't understand why Canon chooses to follow this design route. Maybe they think it will induce their user base to upgrade to the latest camera versions. But that requirement is likely most often discovered after finding that the latest software won't work with the user's current equipment. Trying to turn a negative experience plus the requirement to expend significant additional cash doesn't translate in my mind to a satisfied customer base.

I was just at a Canon Live Learning workshop this weekend where one of the instructors talked about how we might want to give up LR & PS because Canon's software always works on all Canon cameras, no matter what, unlike LR/PP.  He was talking about new camera models, but this is still funny timing.
