Canon has announced release of updates to its Digital Photo Professional (DPP) and EOS Utility (EU) software, which will become available in ‘late June’.
Both updates will be available for the Windows and Mac operating systems and will be free downloads.
The updated DPP 4.0 software for editing CR2.RAW images delivers improved workflow efficiency and provides an expanded adjustment range for highlights and shadows, as well as enhanced basic functions.
New additions 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. An updated graphical user interface supports the ability to display up to 10,000 image thumbnails at a time (Jesus!) and view selected images for comparison in the preview window, as well as assign ratings to images.
The upgraded EU 3.0 allows users to connect a camera to a computer via a USB connection or Wireless File Transmitter for remote adjustment of camera settings and to support image transfer and capture. EU 3.0 integrates with DPP 4.0 to allow users to select and compare images, making it easier to choose the best shot, make slight adjustments to camera settings and reshoot scenes.
