Home Reviews Peripherals Canon updates EOS DSLR software

If you have a Canon EOS camera you will definitely want to download the new Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4.0 image processing software for browsing, editing, and developing of digital images; and EOS Utility (EU) 3.0, which enables users to remotely change camera settings and transfer images to a computer. 

The new DPP 4.0 software brings long awaited editing of RAW1 images and improved workflow efficiency for photographers who can edit large numbers of images. It improves on the previous version in areas such as an expanded adjustment range for highlights and shadows as well as enhanced basic functions. New functions include an 8-axis colour gamut adjustment and an Auto function that automatically analyses the brightness and darkness balance of a histogram and adjusts the tones, or luminance, of an image accordingly. It can also display as many as 10,000 thumbnail images and assign ratings to them.

The new EU 3.0 allows users to connect a camera to a computer via a USB connection or Wireless File Transmitter2 to remotely perform camera settings, transfer, and capture images. It will launch EU2.14 for unsupported EOS models.

The software supports Windows 7,8, and 64-bit 8.1, Mac 10.8+ and works on Canon EOS-1D/C/X, 5D Mark III and 6D.

Comment

I have been a bit remiss in not covering much about Canon cameras. As much as anything it reflects the tenacity of Panasonic to get kit into reviewers hands – not so for Nikon, Sony or Canon.

One of my first system cameras in the late 80’s was a much-coveted EOS – no Nikon for me (probably because I could not afford it)! I proudly humped around the mandatory trunk sized aluminium carry case, flash unit, and multiple lenses until it destroyed all desire to take a spontaneous shot!

However camera technology has come a long way and digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras are smaller, lighter, and lens technology makes them less of a luggable proposition.

Today EOS is more a philosophy, a way of taking shots and covers a range of cameras including the top end professional 1 series, the prosumer high end 5, 7 and 70 series, the entry level consumer 100, 600, 700, 1100, and 1200 series and finally the mirror-less M series. All use the EF series lenses that are reputed to be the most comprehensive range in the world.
