« on: November 29, 2017, 09:12:38 PM »
Canon has released new firmware for the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R.

Firmware Version 1.1.2 incorporates the following improvements and fix:

  1. Support has been added for chromatic aberration correction, peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, and Digital Lens Optimizer when using Digital Photo Professional to process RAW images captured with the following TS-E lenses: TS-E 17mm f/4L, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO, or TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO.
  2. Fixes a phenomenon in which standard exposure may not be obtained, or an irregular exposure may result, when Silent LV (Live View) shooting with the following TS-E lenses: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO, or TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO.
  3. Support for Exif 2.31 has been added.

How does peripheral illumination correction in DPP work when shooting with the TS-E lenses, but only if shot with a 5Ds [R]?

Do the lenses pass tilt & shift information to the camera, and Canon decided to limit it's recording in EXIF to 5Ds?

It looks they are updating current cameras only (but obvious defects that hinder shooting).

Whet is interesting is that is supported with the older lenses (17 and 24mm) also, not the newer one only. So the capability was already there? Why it is exploited only now?

Not for tilted/shifted

None of the TS-E lenses communicate Shift or Tilt info to the camera (there are no encoders in the lens AFAIK)

I wondered again about this when I saw the info, but since it includes the 17mm and 24mm I assume it's just making use of the lens ID

Any 'fixes' such as for CA must be carried out as  'best guess' from analysing the picture content, which might work for CA on a shifted image but gets tricky for a tilted and shifted image.

The change to exif 2.31 covers the following (from http://www.cipa.jp/std/documents/e/DC-008-Translation-2016-E.pdf )
Published Revision 2.31
 Added time difference to UTC(Universal Time Coordinated) as
tags relating to Date and Time
- Added three time offset tags respectively corresponding to
the three existing tags (File change date and time, Date and time of original data generation, Date and time of digital data generation)
 Added tags relating to shooting situation
(Temperature, Humidity, Pressure, WaterDepth, Acceleration, CameraElevationAngle)
 Corrected misprints and omissions throughout the text (Including the reflection of the contents of the corrigendum established in September 2014 to the main text)

We need someone disassemble one of those lenses and tell us. Because if it just uses the lens ID, and then everything is done in DPP, why does it need support in firmware, and it's not available for any camera? Or the camera does add some info later used by DPP?
