Man, all these great ideas everyone is sharing here, but is anyone submitting their gripes/suggestions to Canon? This rant and rave reminds of me of when people complain or talk about someone behind their backs. The communication never gets to the culprit and so they keep doing what they are doing and the complainer keeps complaining. An endless loop.
I do hope some of you or most of you send these excellent suggestions directly to Canon. That way they are aware of the suggestions, gripes etc and deploy these via firmware, updates, upgrades etc. if and whenever possible.
Ex. I wrote to Canon support the other day about DPP not offering a very simple command called RENAME. RENAME should appear in a right click (i.e. context menu) on a photo but does not. Each to time I rename an image I have to shell out to Windows Explorer and perform this task. (Yes I am aware of the batch process but that is multi stepped. I also know you can rename a folder but why no single photo/file?) I finally got fed up and instead of griping here I wrote to support and received the following reply from Rodney in Canon Support: "We appreciate your continued correspondence regarding the EOS 5D Mark III and Canon software. A rename option in Digital Photo Professional is a very good suggestion. We thank you for this feedback and I will make sure to pass this along towards the appropriate parties for consideration. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance with your inquiry about the EOS 5D Mark III and Canon software. Thank you for choosing Canon."
So let's take all of these great suggestions and get them in the hands of the people that can do something. To get you started here's the email for Canon support: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly (and I hope you do send your valuable comments to them) please share with us the reply you have received.
PS I am going to start this as a New Topic as well
