p.2 #1 · p.2 #1 · What is DPP really for??


i use it as a jpg viewer.
only wish they'd make ticking off images a bit quicker.
and the slideshow needs a way so i can abort the whole show
but still keep the selections i made in memory.

usually the selections i make are for deletions and when i end it to check something else i have to start all over again

still trying to find that perfect jpg viewer ie speed

I too find DPP 2.x an extremely useful RAW converter. The parameter tweaks are fast, the interface intuitive and the TIFF renderings preferable over PSCS for the most part (PSCS conversions usually need more post-conversion adjustments than DPP ones).

The conversion is fairly fast on my Mac G4 Dual. A screen full of thumbnails (20" Cinema Display) takes 5-10 seconds to draw. Now I thought that was slow but compared to the gentleman's laptop taking 1-2 minutes I guess it rips! DPP 2.x has come a long ways since DPP 1.0 and EVU.

RAW converters all have strengths and weaknesses and currently there does not seem to be one that combines everything. Certainly some come much closer to having it all than others but DPP is one of the "others". DPPs main strength, in my opinion, is rendering more accurate color without doing a lot of tweaking and of course it is free with the camera. However when it comes to things like workflow, highlight and shadow recovery or processing speed DPP is far behind 3rd party software.

I have on my website an article about DPP as well as some comments on Raw Shooter you may find interesting.

this pretty much says it best!!
i too blew 60.00 bucks (mainly for support of Pixmantec) for the RSP and use it mainly for converting pictures that show some CA from my 17-85 shots (only seen at 17-20mm in extreme conditions).
for all else, i can't find a better conversion than i get with DPP.
colors are perferct, and photos come out with a "pop".
converts a RAW into whatever i want in less time than any other program too.

I agree with Michael-M on this re DPP

ACR 3.3 beta is getting better, but I find myself producing tiff's in DPP, then editing with CS2

OK off topic but the question was posed so I'll answer it here.

What is 'tethered shooting'?... sounds interesting



At the moment "Tethered" means that a cable is physically connected from the camera to the computer allowing some direct control of the camera by the computer.

In the future (or maybe already) a wireless link should be able to eliminate the cable.

Tethered shooting is usually always done in a Studio or specific Client location.

The advantage is that you can review the files with the client before, during and after the shoot. -You should be able to see a much better (and of course) larger shot than what you will get on the camera's LCD screen.

Note that you can with some software actually set the camera parameters (aperture, shutter etc etc) from the computer and shoot.


"Tethered Shooting" is an invaluable technique in a lot of situations.

Cheers

Latest version of Camera Raw for CS (version 2.4) supports D350. You can download for free from Adobe's site.

Noone has compared DPP to the EOS viewer (which I find much quicker). Is the RAw converter in the EOS viewer so poor that I should be using a thrid party or using DPP?

gosh, with all the replies you still ask about 3rd party converters?
yes, i have compared the DPP converted images to that of EVU.........DPP does a better job by far.
if you want to try a 3rd party converter, then download any of them(most all have a trial period) and see for yourself................if you want us to do the work for you, then by all means email me a RAW file that you want converted and i'll do at least 3 different software conversions for you.

not sure what kind of machine you are using, but i find DPP to be the quickest of all when converting to a large highest quality jpeg ....

DPP- 10 secs.
RSE- 11.5 secs
EVU- never timed it, but it was definately slower.

Thank you for the link Joseph.

For me, Photoshop CS opens, but no image is opened with it.

Same problem here. If I try to send a converted file to Photoshop from DPP Photoshop opens briefly then crashes without displaying the file.

I can get the converted file into Photoshop by using the Photoshop File Open command.

I was able to transfer a file into photoshop in DPP by using File > Batch Process and then selecting Open image using software (I first had to "browse" to the photoshop executable file). The path to the photshop executable is saved for future exports, so this method ends up being just about as quick as Tools > Transfer to Photoshop
