That part is a rather s h i t t y behavior by Canon.

Why?

I hate having to enter my serial number every time.

123412341234 works.

Hmm, for testing purposes there is an equally easy way to get a fast Number:

That part is a rather s h i t t y behavior by Canon. It's totally legitimate to download software for a camera that you don't own. It could be old, sold, rented or borrowed gear or cameras belonging to clients or friends that made the captures that you are to process. No serial number should be required if they have decided to make the soft free.

The soft are not really for the cameras but for the files! :-ppp

HTH

Not really. I am just not sure why you referred to it as 's h i t t y ' behaviour - that suggests they are treating people badly if they want to download it. It is their software and they are free to allow access in any what they want, and as above there are ways round it.

"Popular"???

Dang, I guess I am getting so old, I have missed out on whats cool again!

I always start in DPP to process RAW files and then make TIFFs of some files to work with elsewhere. In addition to the RAW conversion, the DLO feature really sharpens up some files. I'm no post processing expert, but DPP has become intuitive for me and generates good final products or files to work on further elsewhere with minimal effort. Any improvements are welcomed by me.

I'm sure alternative workflows may be as good - but I hate having to stumble through the learning curve.

I download DPP - to have it should I need it. Have not actively used DPP since i moved to Lightroom.

Reason: unfortunately even DPP 4 is still missing at least 2 key features that I need all the time in my workflow:
* no keystone correction - not auto, not manual. only crop/turn/mirror
* no selective application of effects to parts of image. only global settings

Wish Canon would add this, so I could kick Adobe in the head and wipe their software from my PCs.

Hi bsbeamer.
I don't know about the dates, but I checked the 40D support page only a couple of days ago to see if it was supported by DPP4 and it was still showing only DPP3 as available.

I shall be downloading it and trying it now I don't need different versions for different cameras, I tried DPP3 before and couldn't make any sense of it but that may have been because I didn't know what I was looking for!  ;D
Edit,
I have just checked the 40D support page and sure enough DPP4 is available there now so maybe they didn't announce it until they had changed all the support pages.

Cheers, Graham.

is this a NEW release, or just a late announcement?

The previous version 4 of DPP supported the Rebel Xsi (450D) but not the Rebel XT (350D), The latest version does support the XT so I am assuming that almost all Canon digital cameras will now be supported by this one version.

Hi Brian.
I just checked for my 300D (not that I use it now) and that is not supported, doesn't even have Windows 10 supported software! I'm guessing that one is being left behind!  :'(

Real Bummer, Graham. Maybe in the next version. I did notice,though, with the XT (350D) my 200mm f/2.8 II, 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro and other lenses will not register lens data, and I cannot do any CA repair or peripheral correction with this camera. I could with the Xsi (450D).

Have now tried this version of DPP and it behaves as before but covers my old 40D and so I've dumped the second earlier version.  I really like DPP for what it does and as Vern says for lens specific adjustments I doubt that anything beats it and it's easy to use.  It was never trying to be PS so I see no reason to knock it at all.

Every shot I've ever posted on CR has been via DPP.

CR, thanks for the hint.

Tried the new DPP version yesterday on a 2nd gen. Core i5 equipped Notebook (~2011-2012 introduced) and it is really fast and well sorted ... it will be used on my main computer, a 3rd gen Core i7. Expecially sharpness settings and global corrections work like a breeze and do not need special popups any longer.

I have used DxO but it is really slow compared to the DPP and doesn't have too many interesting functions for my use. To use my 5D I had to upgrade to the Elite (?) version, never done that, to much hassle for some minor benefits.
DPP isn't that capable too to correct a lot of parameters of an image, and is has no local corrections. But I try to simulate the "slide photography" with my 5D: Try to get everything right from the start. On the other hand I profit from the benefits to correct colors, contrast, and some other minor GLOBAL tweaks.

After taking photos on a birthday festivity for a family member I had the comment: "People had fun to be photographed and felt very comfortable. The photographs show that!" - this took me down from all the tech/feature talk to the basics of photography. Not that I do not like tech and features, I recently upgraded to the IS version of the f/4 70-200 and the IS is a great tech/feature that helps me to get photos that aren't possible without IS.
Most used tools: EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro & EOS M i + 2.0 22

I installed the 4.5.20 from the canon.eu site yesterday - works fine, and very nice that I also can open raw files from my (very) old EOS 400D.

However it is still a bit frustrating that DPP4.x does not read DPP3.x receipes , crops etc ,and even more frustration that DPP4 does only read the "starrating" from DPP3 not the "checkmark". For that reason I have still DPP3.x installed alongside DPP4.x

Alt that being said, I am glad for the DPP4.x it works great, and I have not yet used the "lightroom" software I bought alongside a new computer.

Only have 4.5.10 on the Canon.us site. Oh well - they'll probably come around to make it available there also in due time...  :P

They have fixed something that bugged me a lot - the crop ratio used to revert to "free" constantly.

The new version  (4.5.20) is crashing on my constantly. I can't even edit one photo with it.

I'm using it on a 32bit Windows 7 running in a VirtualBox. Every time I change the shooting distance in the lens section it crashes. If I don't change that then it crashes when pasting a recipe to other photos.

Since this is in a VM I took a snapshot before installing it, going back to 4.4... everything works just fine.
