Canon Updates Digital Photo Professional 4

Canon Updates Digital Photo Professional 4

By Canon Rumors | July 16, 2015 | Canon Software

Canon has released an updated version of its popular Digital Photo Professional 4 (DPP 4) RAW processing software, which expands the support of its DSLRs to include EOS 1200D, EOS 60Da and EOS 60D as well as its PowerShot G7 X and PowerShot G1 X Mark II premium expert compacts and EOS M2 and EOS M Compact System Cameras…

The new update – version 4.3.0 – also incorporates two critical fixes, including a phenomenon in which the picture style set on the camera is not transferred to Digital Photo Professional properly and a phenomenon in which the copy and paste command using keyboard shortcuts cannot be used for the folder name.

“As part of Canon’s ongoing development of its Digital Photo Professional software, regular updates and fixes keep it up to date with our end users. Canon always listens carefully to customer feedback and this latest update is an example of that,” commented Mike Burnhill, Canon Europe’s Professional Imaging Technical Support Programme manager.

Patent: Lubricating Canon Body Cap

Patent: Lubricating Canon Body Cap

By Canon Rumors | July 15, 2015 | Canon Patents

A patent for a Canon DSLR body cap that lubricates and protects the lens mount has appeared. I’ve never personally experienced a dried out or wind burned camera body lens mount, but maybe you have?

As pointed out in the forum though, this sort of concept could be to help protect the rubber seals on lenses. They can crack over time and need replacement. Or perhaps it’s to keep the contacts on the camera body and lens clean, maybe both.

Amazon Prime Day Has Arrived

By Canon Rumors | July 15, 2015 | Ad Post

Today is the first (of many?) Amazon Prime Day, which Amazon promises will have more deals than Black Friday. The only catch is that you need an Amazon Prime membership, which is free for the first 30 days.

There’s little chance of any Canon branded items being featured, due to MAP regulations, but there should be a lot of electronics and and other photographic items on sale.

The deals today are global and if you go to your regional Amazon site, you should see some unique deals.

First Impressions: Canon XC10 by LensRentals

First Impressions: Canon XC10 by LensRentals

By Canon Rumors | July 14, 2015 | Canon Videography

LensRentals.com has posted their first impressions of Canon’s polarizing fixed lens XC10 camcorder. They’ve also posted some test video they shot during the July 4 long weekend.

From LensRentals.com:

One last note regarding the focus abilities.  I don’t feel like the focusing speed matches the shooting style that this camera would work best for.  With its small form factor, fixed lens, decent dynamic range, and ISO performance, it would work really well as a “run ’n gun” style camera.    Some people need to travel light, get in, get the shot, and get out.  Everything about the focusing system in the XC10 seemed slow. Not inaccurate, just slow. Read the full review…
