Canon's software for their EOS cameras is quite useful, and there are regular updates available, but the problem has always been that they are only updates - you need an original version of the EOS software installed, before they will install. It also looks (2014) as if Canon has appreciated this problem for people with computers with no CD drive and that actual install disk images are available - we'll add links to this, as we find them. It's important to note that you only need to have one bit of Canon software installed and then you can use any other updaters quite normally. This article is one of hundreds of reviews and articles on the site - See our Articles Index Page for the latest. If the tips and info here help, please do let me know, or possibly buy something (anything) via one of our links, things cost no more, but help me run the site.
If this page wasn't of help - do let me know, there may be extra info we can add to improve or clarify what's written. If you have no previous version of the software and can only find an updater, you will need to cheat somewhat to install it. This varies with Canon site around the world, so for example, in September 2014, the Canon 6D page on their US site has two versions of the Disk.
You may need your camera serial number (I used a 5D3 serial found on the net [082024001216], since our EOS 1Ds3 serial number didn't work). If for some reason, you've only got an updater and can't get a disk image, then you need to look at using the updater and fooling it, through a simple registry edit. Windows PC registry modification is not without risks - this is a simple process, but you do this at your own risk.
Note that once you have installed one bit of Canon software following these methods, you will be able to use future Canon software updaters without going to all this trouble.
Since the updaters contain full versions of the software, it's possible to convince the installer that the software is already installed by adding appropriate hkeys to your windows registry.
Note that the items you need to enter depends on the version of windows you are using - do read right through the information below to make sure what you are doing is clear.
Use the same process with the data further down the page for whatever system you are using. The articles and reviews are written in my spare time - I really appreciate all the people who have taken the time to write to me to say when they have been useful. BTW If you've just found the site via the rumours pages - please do have a look round the articles and reviews, since they are far more important to me, in helping people get more out of their photography. Note that you only need the entries for the software you want to install, but there's no problem setting up everything.
You can now install any further software update, without having the original installed, or going through this process. I'm told by one user (thanks) that the version of the text that worked for them was the one below, however several others have said that the one above works for win 7. Note - I'm not a Windows PC user, so if someone would like to clarify this, please do let me know?
If someone clould clarify this, it would be of great help, we have no Win PCs here to test.
Run the Install.exe you find in that folder and the program should get installed with no problems. If for some reason, you've only got an updater and can't get a disk image, then you need to look at using the updater and fooling it. There are a number of techniques for installing the software if you've no CD, but they do vary as Canon seems to change the install process every so often. Some Canon sites do have a CD image to download (see sidebox) but the links change, so you may need to do a bit of hunting around, or use the process below. Remember that you only need have one bit of the Canon software installed, to use the updaters (more info). The system generates a dialog box that gives no choice but to trash the entire app, thus preventing installation.
I'm also hearing of other general install problems with 10.8 and Canon software - please let me know if this works for you, or you still have problems? The installer looks for previously installed Canon software (any of the Canon software will do, so you only need do this trick once). For the latest DPP, you will need a slightly different approach which is covered further down the page.
Note: If you are installing on a very old Mac, there are some alternative approaches that worked on old software described in some of the earlier techniques below. You need to download the appropriate files from Canon - any file will need the minor alteration applying before you install, if there is no other Canon software in place.
You need to modify the contents of the UpdateInstaller file, for it to run as an installer, without checking for old software first.
This is the file that stops you installing the software without a previous version installed. Remember that you need to be working on a copy - you can't delete it in the original disk image.
Note that once you have installed the software, you will be able to use future updaters and installers without going to all this trouble.
Note that not all software requires this updated technique - EOS Utility, for example, currently needs to be installed with the earlier method. You can of course use an older version of the installer to install the latest version of DPP, Then you use a newer updater, which should work fine. Remember that you only need one of the bits of Canon software installed to use any of the updaters with no modifications. However if you copy the installer from the disk image to your deskop, as in the process below, and look at its contents, there is a new file in this latest installer that you can delete to make an installable version of the updater.
Future updates and any other Canon software should just install normally, without the need for any of these procedures. If you're not sure about doing this, I've tried to make the instructions as clear as possible - read through everything and get an idea for what it is you are doing. A huge thank you to the many visitors to this page who have bought some item (however small) via one of the links below. 2008 We were sent details (thanks) of how to modify an existing application on your disk, to fool the updater. Corrects shooting date error in other manufacturer`s image files when sent to Easy-PhotoPrintEX from Digital Photo Professional via plug-in print. Fixed a phenomenon where the cameraa€™s serial number that is displayed in the shooting information of the image is not displayed correctly for some of the EOS 60D. Fixed a phenomenon where the buttons for HDR tool cannot be displayed under specific settings of the display. Fixed a phenomenon where check mark or rating that is set using Quick Check Tool may not be displayed correctly. Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when processing RAW images, the original image characteristics could not be obtained. Fixes a malfunction that occurs when using the quick check tool to check a large volume of images. Dieser Inhalt ist auf Englisch, Deutsch, Spanisch, FranzA¶sisch und Italienisch verfA?gbar. Canona€™s Digital Photo Professional (DPP) is a free, and surprisingly powerful, image organising and editing application that ships in the box with every EOS camera. If you consider your RAW images files as digital negatives then, like traditional negatives, they need to be processed in order to reveal their true colours and tones.
Digital Photo Professional is specially designed to work closely with your Canon EOS camera and lenses, thus enabling you to correct more challenging problems such as chromatic aberration and lens-related artifacts such as distortion and vignetting. You can ask Digital Photo Professional to open specific file types a€“ such as JPEGs, RAW files and TIFFs a€“ after EOS Utility has imported them. To download an update for DPP (or install it from scratch) just click here for the Canon Europe Download Centre, then select your product type and camera model details and select the software option. Once DPP and the EOS Utility have been installed, plug your Canon EOS camera into your computer. The Quick Check view in DPP enables you to assign Check marks or Ratings that enable you to organise your photographs. As your digital collection continues to grow it can be an increasing challenge to manage it. Use the Sort menu in DPP to display files hierarchically according to their assigned star rating. Once youa€™ve rated or check marked your imported shots you can then use the a€?Sorta€™ menu to display the highest rated images at the top of the main window, or display them by their numerical check marks. After sorting through your photographs youa€™ll discover that some images may need a bit of processing to make them look their best. Common photo fixes, such as cropping and straightening, can be performed from the Tools menu in DPP. You can manually hide artifacts such as sensor spots by using DPPa€™s a€?Stampa€™ tool to clone adjacent patches of pixels over them.
To access more of DPPa€™s RAW processing tools, click on the a€?Edit imagea€™ window icon and then click on the a€?Tool palettea€™ icon. The RAW editor mode in DPP enables you to change the cameraa€™s White Balance or Picture Style settings with ease and see the results in real time on the screen. If you cana€™t find a suitable White Balance preset, you can use DPPa€™s a€?Click white balancea€™ eyedropper to sample an area that should be a neutral white. Therea€™s also an Auto Lighting Optimizer control that enables you to quickly auto correct problems with brightness or contrast.
ALO analyses contrast in captured images and modifies both shadows and highlights via tone curve adjustments to minimise loss of detail in contrasty light conditions. In DPPa€™s Edit window you can use the RGB taba€™s curve tool to improve contrast (or restore tonal details) by manually re-shaping the curve. One of DPPa€™s most powerful image adjustment tools can be found in the a€?Edit imagea€™ windowa€™s RGB tab. Digital Photo Professionala€™s relatively new Compositing tool (first seen in DPP 3.11) opens up some creative layering possibilities. Using the Compositing Tool of DPP software you can quickly and easily import and mix multiple shots together to produce creative composite images.
Available from the Tools menu of DPP, the Compositing Tool allows multiple images to be combined with specific controls to determine how each individual layer will build on the ones lower in the overall composite.
With some of the newer EOS DSLR cameras featuring built-in High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging functions (first introduced in the EOS 5D Mark III in 2012), DPP additionally offers HDR image processing for all EOS camera owners. By shooting a series of bracketed shots you can capture both highlight and shadow detail in a high contrast scene and merge the shots together using DPPa€™s High Dynamic Range (HDR) command. DPPa€™s HDR menu command has controls that allow fine-tuning of brightness, colour and details. Brightness, saturation and contrast sliders can be used to adjust tone and colour, plus strength, smoothness and fineness alter the detail enhancement, so therea€™s plenty of control over the final image.
In DPPa€™s HDR menu you can start off with presets, such as Art Vivid, and then fine-tune the slider settings to tweak tone, colour, details and alignment.
After mixing tones and colours from the source images you can create a composite HDR image which takes the detail from highlight and shadow areas.
In the Lens tab of DPP, there are two different tools that are designed to overcome a host of lens-related aberrations.
You can use the Lens aberration correction tools of DPP to counteract common lens-induced artifacts such as distortion and vignetted corners.
The newer versions of DPP software (from 3.11 onwards) also include the Digital Lens Optimizer in the Lens tab, thus enabling you to counteract a wider range of lens aberrations and, in turn, produce better looking shots.
Field curvature a€“ blurring at the edge of the image produced by the lensa€™ curved focal plane. Comatic aberration a€“ colour blurring appearing at the edge of the image in a radial direction (like a cometa€™s tale). Chromatic aberration of magnification a€“ misaligned and blurred colours at the periphery of the image. Axial chromatic aberration a€“ this is mainly purple coloured blur that occurs in the centre of an image where there are strong specular highlights. You can apply the DLO by clicking a€?Tunea€™, ticking the Settings box and then increasing the strength of the slider.
To get DPPa€™s Digital Lens Optimizer and Lens aberration correction tools to work, youa€™ll need to download your camera lens data by clicking a€?Updatea€™ and ticking the appropriate box for each lens you own. The Digital Lens Optimizer does a better job than the Lens aberration correction tool at removing axial chromatic aberration. Note: Digital Lens Optimizer is not available for images taken with an extender mounted on a compatible lens. Once youa€™ve organised your photographs and edited them to your satisfaction using DPPa€™s collection of image processing tools then ita€™s time to share them with colleagues or clients. You can print hard copies of your edited shots directly from DPP, as wells a creating contact sheets. Via the Batch option you can convert multiple RAW files to re-sized JPEGS so you can put them online or share them easily via e-mail. When working in tandem with the Canon EOS Utility software, Digital Photo Professional can empower you to organise, fix and share your images effectively.
The details you provide on this page will not be used to send unsolicited e-mail, and will not be sold to a 3rd party. Canon photo software suite : Canon announce that its Pixma All-In-One and Photo Printer ranges come bundled with a smart software suite that includes Easy-PhotoPrint EX and Easy-WebPrint EX - two applications that make it easy to produce great-looking documents and photos.
The latest version of Canon Easy-PhotoPrint EX photo software includes Auto Photo Fix II, which offers intelligent correction of underexposed images, enabling anyone to produce great-looking results from digital photos that have been taken either in low-light or without adequate flash illumination. New to Pxima is Canon Easy-WebPrint EX, intuitive, powerful software from Canon that makes it simple to select and print text, images and content in internet web pages. The intelligent clip handling in Canon Easy-WebPrint EX software gives users complete control over the way information gleaned from the internet is selected and presented. After you've successfully installed the print driver and software, the Canon Solution Menu EX software screen pops up on your desktop.


Bottom line - Canon has created a very appealing large carriage printer with their new PIXMA Pro-1. The EOS Utility application is fully compatible with all EOS DSLRs, right back to the EOS D30 from 2000. Depending on your camera model it will need to be connected to your computer by either USB or Firewire cable, through the cameraa€™s WiFi mode (on the EOS 6D) or via WFT transmitter. Clicking on the a€?Starts to download imagesa€™ button downloads all the images and video clips on the cameraa€™s memory card to your computer. The EOS Utilitya€™s Preferences button enables you choose a different Destination Folder (such as one on a portable hard drive).
Customise Preferences to name your files in more useful ways, such as including the camera ownera€™s name. You can customise the Download Images Preferences to import all images on the card, images that have yet to be downloaded or even images whose print order settings were specified with the cameraa€™s menu settings. Downloading all the images on the card can be convenient, as you can do other things while they import. A drop down filter menu at the top right of the EOS Utility enables you to fine-tune your import criteria.
Click Download and watch a preview of each photograph as EOS Utility imports them into your computer. EOS cameras have increasingly sophisticated options for setting picture styles, white balance presets and other menu options. Save time inputting information using the cameraa€™s fiddly text input method and type into the EOS Utilitya€™s Camera Settings menu using your keyboard.
Your EOS DSLRa€™s Picture Styles feature provides a powerful way to enhance the look of your images. EOS DSLRs such as the EOS 650D have a My Menu settings tab that stores your six favourite menu commands. Customise the look of your EOS DSLRa€™s particular Picture Style from the comfort of the EOS Utility and send it to your camera. Choose your favourite six menu commands from a list of options so that they appear in your Canona€™s My Menu settings screen. One of the most useful and powerful functions of the EOS Utility is a feature which allows you to remotely control properties such as your cameraa€™s aperture, shutter speed, ISO and shutter button from your computer. Thanks to EOS DSLRs with Live View, you can click the EOS Utilitya€™s Live View Shoot button and view the video feed in the Remote Live View window on your computer.
You can also jump to Remote Movie Recording mode to record video via remote control and even take control of audio recording features such as sound levels. The Compose window enables you to overlay image files and aspect ratio guides to help with composition. Double click on part of the image to check focus with the Zoom View function, a useful feature when your camera is tethered. After setting up the chosen scene on your computer you can record it as a movie on your EOS DSLR. Before recording video clips you can use the EOS Utilitya€™s Remote Live View window to manually set sound levels. Use the Timer Shooting window to capture a series of stills at set intervals so that you can run them together as a timelapse sequence.
If you want to capture a series of stills taken at precise intervals and then run them together as a timelapse sequence, you could spend money on a programmable remote control timer device. Once youa€™ve decided on a timer interval just click Start and let the application do the rest.
You can also use the Timer Shooting window to remote control the duration of your EOS DSLRa€™s Bulb exposure and capture moving lights from passing cars for example, or star trails in the night sky.
The EOS Utilitya€™s Accessories tab enables you to launch other Canon apps such as the Picture Style Editor. Enhance your in-camera slideshows by copying music tracks to your camera via the EOS Utility.
The EOS Utilitya€™s Monitor Folder option is designed to work with dedicated Canon Wireless Transmitters such as the WFT-E1, WFT-E2 and WFT-E3. If you want to enhance your in-camera slideshows with music, then click on the Register Background Music label in the EOS Utilitya€™s Main Window. There are several ways to transfer the images from the media card of your camera to the hard disk of your computer. Connecting the camera directly to a computer using the supplied interface cable is one way of transferring the images from the media card.
When downloading direct from the camera using ZoomBrowser or ImageBrowser, the images are displaying in a window where you can make a selection before strating the transfer. After transfer, the images will appear in the main browser window where it is easy to view, organise and edit your images.
Once the images are downloaded to the computer, you can view them in the ZoomBrowser or ImageBrowser display. Transferring images from the camera to computer by a cable connection has the advantage that everything you need is supplied with the camera. A card reader is often faster and more convenient device for transferring images files from a media card to a computer hard drive. When you insert a media card into the reader, an image of the card appears on the computer desktop, just as if you had plugged in a second hard drive. If you copy the image files from you will then be able to access them from the Canon browser. EOS Utility also allows you to remotely operate the camera from your computer using the supplied interface cable. Canon software is found on the EOS Digital Solutions Disk supplied free with EOS digital cameras. The advantage of shooting RAW files is that you take control of the image processing, with the option of making different adjustments to those given by the camera processing. Some EOS digital cameras give the option of shooting RAW and JPEG images at the same time, giving the best of both worlds.
If you replace a digital EOS camera with a later model, files from the more recent camera may not be compatible with the original software. Every time you make an exposure with an EOS digital camera, a mass of information is recorded with the image. If the software will install - then you just need to get an updater from the Canon web site, which will update the software to the new version. Remember that the software is often not specific to a particular camera, so if there is nothing for your model, look for another one. The software is not locked as such, but you could think of the process below as 'unlocking Canon installer software'. When it finds the correct one it will assume that you already had the software installed at some point and will go ahead and install the update (actually a new full version of the software). Some content a€“ such as product descriptions, recent product launches and some technical articles a€“ is also available in German, Spanish, French, Italian and Dutch.
Alcuni contenuti come descrizioni di prodotto, lanci di prodotti recenti e alcuni articoli tecnici sono disponibili anche in tedesco, spagnolo, francese, italiano e olandese. Bepaalde inhoud, zoals productbeschrijvingen, onlangs gelanceerde producten en sommige technische artikelen, zijn ook beschikbaar in het Duits, Spaans, Frans, Italiaans en Nederlands.
Youa€™ll find DPP on the EOS Digital Solution Disk alongside other very useful Canon developed software, such as EOS Utility. DPP has all the digital darkroom tools youa€™ll need to claw back highlight or shadow details, banish colour casts and crop to improve composition. In this article wea€™ll take you on a comprehensive tour of the powerful features of this Canon image processing software.
The latest version supports new Canon lenses and recognises RAW format files from the more recent Canon EOS DSLR cameras. The menu will offer a variety of downloads such as ImageBrowser EX, EOS Utility and EOS Digital Solution Disk Software, so scroll down and click on the appropriate link to download DPP for Mac or Windows. If youa€™ve already opened DPP you can choose a€?Tools > Start EOS Utilitya€™ from the main windowa€™s menu. By default most image processing apps display photos according to shooting date and DPP is no exception.
Add a star rating (from 1 to 5) to highlight your favourite photographs, or assign a numerical check mark to sort shots by theme or type (such as landscape or portrait).
You can also choose a€?View > Thumbnail with informationa€™ to list metadata alongside each image. Although DPP will happily edit JPEG files youa€™ll get the best results by working with RAW files.
This enables you to quickly crop the shot using a variety of preset aspect ratios, as well as using the Angle slider to straighten any uneven horizons. The White Balance or Picture Style preset that you used to capture the shot is indicated by a little camera icon.
This enables you to reduce chrominance or luminance image noise in either RAW or compressed images by tweaking slider settings. This tool does the same job as the ALO feature in your Canon DSLR (it is in all current EOS DSLRs), which is designed to even out contrast by selectively adjusting areas of the image. In-camera there are three levels of setting strength a€“ Standard, Low and Strong a€“ which can be used at any ISO speed, as well as the ability to turn the setting off (known as Disable). Here you can place points on a tone curve and then drag them up or down to change the shadows or highlights in an image. After selecting your main image you can import a background shot and then use the Composite Method drop down menu to adjust the way the photos mix together (in a similar way to Photoshopa€™s layer blending modes). There are four fixed types of composites: Add, Average, Lighten and Darken, plus the useful Weighted option that provides precise control over which layer of the composite is more or less transparent. Image layers can be individually adjusted for position relative to other image layers, if required.
Similar to the in-camera HDR processing of the EOS 5D Mark III, the HDR command in DPP processes and combines three images to create an HDR composite. It takes the chosen images and processes them using the default a€?Naturala€™ profile to produce quite subtle results.
You can also select from different presets such as Art Standard, Art Vivid, Art Bold and Art Embossed. Older versions of DPP feature a handy Lens aberration correction panel that targets and fixes problems relating to Peripheral illumination (darkened corners), Chromatic aberration (colour fringing around high contrast edges), Colour Blur (noticeable red or blue blurs at the edge of bright areas) and Distortion (curved lines at the edge of wide-angle shots). The Digital Lens Optimizer is a special kind of image processing that achieves ideal optical characteristics by processing optical aberrations, image softening due to lens diffraction and the effects of using a low-pass filter with a CMOS image sensor. You cannot use Digital Lens Optimiser with multiple exposure RAW images created on the camera. You can export an edited RAW image as a JPEG or TIFF using the Convert and save command in the File menu. Because DPP is designed to work closely with your Canon EOS cameraa€™s menu settings and lenses, you should be able to produce better looking results than youa€™d achieve with third party packages a€“ especially thanks to the powerful Digital Lens Optimizer in the Edit image windowa€™s Lens tab.
Canon’s Pixma All-In-Ones are also bundled with MP Navigator EX -a program that enables anyone to easily scan, copy and file a wide variety of documents.
Easy-WebPrint EX photo software includes Auto-Clip, which automatically detects individual text, and images in a web page before enabling users to print. Users do not need to print internet advertisements, navigation and other web page elements, unless required.
This printer would make an excellent choice for both professional and semi-pro photographers, and even those enthusiasts with deep pockets. In this article wea€™ll take a look at how the Utility software can be used to import photographs and movies from your Canon DSLR and even control various camera settings remotely. If your camera doesna€™t talk to your computer then you may need to ensure that the correct setting is selected in the cameraa€™s communication menu; normally this will be set to a€?Normala€™ or a€?PC connecta€™ (it's worth checking your user manual to be sure).
By default, images are saved in your Mac or PCa€™s Pictures folder and sorted by date into sub folders. This is useful, as your computera€™s Pictures folder will soon get clogged up with high-resolution stills and video clips. You can also use Preferences to fine-tune the way EOS Utility works in Remote Shooting mode, such as getting it to sync with the camera when you start or stop Live View.
You may save editing time a€“ and hard drive storage space a€“ by using the EOS Utility to select and download the best images to your computer (while leaving the unwanted shots on the card). You can select all protected images from the camera, for example, or choose shots that you rated in-camera instead.
A dialogue box will appear, enabling you set the destination folder and the file naming convention. While it is possible to set all options in the camera menu, ita€™s often more convenient to work on the larger computer monitor and make the changes remotely using the EOS Utility. When working with JPEG files, the changes to colour, tone and sharpness are made a€?permanenta€™, but by shooting in RAW and opening the images in Digital Photo Professional (DPP), the look of the files can be edited. The EOS Utilitya€™s Camera Settings tab enables you to customise your My Menu command with ease, thanks to a handy list of all the menu options available. This is especially useful if youa€™re shooting in a studio and want to preview your tethered cameraa€™s composition on a larger screen and control other camera settings from your Mac or PC. You can use the Remote Live View window to make the camera focus on a particular object just by clicking on it with your cursor. You can even activate a wind filter when shooting outdoors with your camera tethered to a laptop. Alternatively, you can tether your camera to a laptop, fire up the free EOS Utility application and click the Remote Shooting label.
You can then stitch the series of stills into a timelapse movie using software such as iMovie. One end plugs into the digital socket of the camera, the other has a FireWire or USB connection that plugs into a computer.
Providing the interface cable is connected, and the camera switched on, the computer will be able to view the files on the media card.


The browser allows you to perform many of the basic functions found on Adobe Photoshop, such as cropping, converting JPEG and RAW images and adjusting contrast and saturation. This is not a major problem if you only have a few image files to download, but cable transfer is not recommended for more than about 20 image files at a time.
You do not want to lose power part way through a transfer, so either make sure the battery is fully charged or run the camera from a mains power supply using an AC adapter kit. All EOS digital cameras accept CompactFlash (CF) cards; some also accept SecureDigital (SD) cards. Now you can open up the card and its folders and drag the image files to a new folder on your computer.
You can fire the shutter release immediately, with a delay of up to 30 seconds, or automatically at intervals (5 seconds to 60 minutes in 1-second increments). In addition, changes are made only to a copy of the RAW file, so you can always go back to the original file to try a different set of adjustments. However, you can load the software supplied with the newer camera and use this with files from the older camera.
You can check the focal length used (even with a zoom lens), the amount of exposure compensation, the ISO speed setting, aperture and shutter speed, use of flash, and much more. Choose your language from the list above and all content that is available in your language will automatically be displayed in your language, otherwise the default language will be English. Seleziona la lingua dall'elenco in alto e automaticamente si visualizzeranno tutti i contenuti disponibili in quella lingua; diversamente la lingua di default sarA  la€™inglese.
Kies de taal uit bovenstaande lijst, waarna alle inhoud die beschikbaar is in de gewenste taal, automatisch in die taal wordt weergegeven. If youa€™ve got an older version of DPP already installed on your computer ita€™s free to update it.
In EOS Utility, go to a€?Preferencesa€™ and choose a€?Linked Softwarea€™ in the drop-down menu. However, DPP enables you to sort imported images by assigning ratings or check marks to them.
Here you can zoom in to check the focus a€“ and even discover which autofocus point was used when capturing the shot.
An optional overlay grid enables you to see true horizontal and vertical lines so that you can adjust the angle with precision. You can use drop down menus to experiment with other White Balance or Picture Style presets and change the colours and tones of your shot in a couple of clicks. It is especially useful when using flash or with backlit subjects as it can detect faces in the frame and brighten those areas to achieve a better result. Ita€™s quite easy to go over-the-top when manually editing points on a curve, so you can try and improve contrast automatically by clicking on the tone curve assist icons. You can use the Weighted slider to make one image more dominant than the other and adjust the position of the overlapping images by tapping on arrows.
The source images for the HDR process can be captured using the cameraa€™s auto-exposure bracketing function. If the images were taken with the camera mounted on a tripod then they should all be aligned, but if the camera was handheld then the HDR Tool can be set to automatically align the frames. Since the presets change the settings of each of the six sliders they let a photographer quickly achieve their intended results. To speed up your output workflow DPP offers a Batch process tool icon in its main window toolbar. If, for some reason, youa€™ve so far ignored the EOS Digital Solutions Disk that came in the box with your EOS DSLR ita€™s a good idea to download and take all of the available software for a test run. As well offering print options such as paper type, selection and size, Canon Easy-PhotoPrint EX delivers plenty of creative options to Pixma owners, including the ability to produce borderless photos, albums, calendars and even photo stickers. Canon Easy-WebPrint EX also allows users to collect, combine and edit web content from many different web pages; for example, users could take a description of a location from one web page, and combine it with a map from another. Additional Reduce-Page-To-Print, Multi-Column Printing and Auto-Duplex printing options help save paper, waste and energy.
Under Photo Print, you have various printing options, including still photo, Movie print, a calendar, etc.
During our tests, the Pro-1 was able to produce stunning prints from 4x6 inches all the way up to borderless 13x19s, with color saturation and black density that is unmatched in this price range. You can also refine how an imported shot is labelled a€“ in the drop down menu go to Destination Folder, click Customise and choose labelling criteria such as Shooting Date and Ownera€™s Name. The a€?Lets you select and download imagesa€™ button provides thumbnail previews of all the images on the cameraa€™s memory card and allows you to tick boxes to indicate which shots should be downloaded.
Once youa€™ve selected the desired thumbnails you can choose to show only the selected images in the EOS Utility window. EOS Utility enables you to customise in-camera Picture Styles by clicking on the Shooting menu tab.
The Remote Live View window even supports Face Detection and Tracking if your camera has those features. When youa€™re happy with your sound levels, click the red recording button in the Remote Live View window to start EOS Movie recording.
A little stopwatch icon launches the Timer Shooting window and from here you can set your camera to shoot at regular intervals, from one shot every five seconds to a single shot every 99 minutes and 59 seconds.
You can click Add and browse to other audio files on your computer, too a€“ just click on a track and then click the arrow icons to move it up or down in the playlist. You can create and print personal photo albums, or create panoramas from multiple images with PhotoStitch (also included). Windows XP offers the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, while Mac OS X users have the iPhoto application.
It is possible to open JPEG files in software such as Photoshop and make changes, but you are working with data already modified by the camera. But for around €15 you can buy an adaptor that enables CompactFlash cards to be used in the PCMCIA slot. You will also find a copy of DPPa€™s manual, which will help you to further maxmise all of the functionalities of the software. You can summon the shota€™s metadata too, which helps you discover if a fast ISO speed setting is likely to add noise, for example.
You can also save specific files from any folder into the a€?Collectiona€™ tab so they can be easily found later. When editing in RAW format you can restore cropped detail at any time, as DPP makes non-destructive changes to the original RAW files. You can also manually tweak properties such as colours, tones and sharpness using the RAW taba€™s sliders. You can build up multiple layered effects by clicking a€?Continuea€™ and importing new shots. To get the Digital Light Optimizer (or the Lens aberration correction feature) to work, you first need to download your lens profile to DPP. This enables you to take a folder of RAW files and output them to a more shareable JPEG or TIFF format. Mons and Hagen owners can also use the application to print directly onto inkjet-compatible CD-R and DVD media. On the right hand side of my desktop, I noticed a new widget with four options; Layout Print, Photo Print, Show Main Screen (which is the one displayed above), and Hide Shortcut menu.
While this printer is no slouch, our timing test results were a bit slower than past models we've tested; which comes as a surprise to us since the ink tanks no longer ride on the print head, thus shedding some additional mass. Click a€?Control Cameraa€™ in the EOS Utilitya€™s main window and the program provides two options for downloading files from the camera a€“ it will download everything as a batch, or you can manually select which images or video clips to import. After the batch download has been completed, the images will be displayed in the main window of Digital Photo Professional for you to then edit. This is a handy option if several photographers are shooting in the studio and downloading their images to the same computer.
A Quick Preview window will then show you a larger version of each photograph as it is downloaded from the camera into the relevant folder on your hard drive.
You can then click on the Picture Style label and modify default styles such as Monochrome. Other changes that you make to Picture Styles or copyright information will also be uploaded to your camera. You can also remotely control White Balance settings, turn on a depth-of-field preview and use the Compose windowa€™s tools to overlay a photo from your hard drive into the Live View scene to help with composition. EOS Utility will record your series of shots straight into your Picture folder, so you dona€™t need to worry about the cameraa€™s memory card filling up. When youa€™ve chosen a playlist, click Register to transfer the files to your connected cameraa€™s memory card.
Think of JPEG files as the equivalent of transparencies from a film camera − your scope for making changes is limited.
WA¤hlen Sie in der Liste oben Ihre Sprache aus, damit sA¤mtliche darin verfA?gbaren Inhalte automatisch entsprechend Ihrer Wahl dargestellt werden. Click a€?Registera€™, choose the file types that you want DPP to open as soon as the EOS Utility has imported them, then Click a€?OKa€™. Alternatively, you can warm up or cool down a shot and banish colour casts by clicking an eyedropper on an area that should be white. You can also re-size them en-mass, change their resolution and give them new file names too. This is a handy little widget that allows you to quickly start printing, and I was glad to see a hide option.
The PIXMA type body is stylish, and uses the same compact technology that we've become accustomed to from this line of printers, with the printer folding up into itself leaving you with a stylish cube on your desk when it's not in use; well rectangle actually.
It will then automatically create and name folders for you to then store your imported photos and video clips. You can also set the Linked Software preference menu to make EOS Utility launch alternative Canon applications such as ImageBrowser EX. This provides a quick and easy way to fine-tune the Monochrome Picture Stylea€™s Contrast and Sharpness sliders, as well as changing filter effects to lighten or darken greyscale tones of specific colours in the original scene. Therea€™s also a selection of aspect ratio overlays available to help you compose your shots, as well as the option to summon a handy Rule of Thirds grid. The CompactFlash card appears as an icon on the computer desktop and can be opened to access the image files inside. You can then sharpen the shot, but you wona€™t need to sharpen it as much thanks to the improvement produced by the DLO. Selection the Photo Print option from either the main menu or the shortcut widget will bring up the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint EX software. Furthermore, with a MSRP of just $999 USD, which includes ink, the Pro-1 is quite affordable when you consider the output quality of this rig.
This mimics the traditional technique of placing coloured filters over the lens when shooting in black and white. The first screen gives you a file tree on the left for you to navigate to the folder that contains the photos you want to print. That said, we give the Canon PIXMA Pro-1 a glowing recommendation for anyone who's looking to create photo lab quality prints from their own home or office, while not breaking the bank with the initial investment.
Clicking on a thumbnail will add it to the queue along the bottom, and under each thumbnail is a counter that allows you to choose how many prints of that particular photo you want printed.
The order that the photos are displayed in the queue below is the order in which they will be printed.
Once you've made all of your selections, be sure that you have the correct paper in the printer, and click the Print button to begin. Steve's ConclusionCanon's PIXMA Pro-1 is a professional series ink-jet printer that is designed for a wide variety of photogs.
Whether you're a seasoned professional or a budding semi-pro, the Pro-1 gives you the ability to display your work on your own walls, present it to clients, or the local photo gallery with quality that meets or exceeds your local or online photo lab.
Like all of Canon's PIXMA models, the Pro-1's rear feed and front paper trays fold into the body, giving you a that compact appearance, which is helped with its black and dark grey color scheme.
Weighing in at 60+ pounds, you need to make sure you have a beefy table or desk to hold the printer up. We also recommend you have someone lend you a hand when initially unboxing the printer, or anytime you plan on moving it. I wasn't fortunate enough to have help, and my back was not happy after lugging this thing to my office and unpacking it.Setting up the printer and installing the driver and Canon software was simple and straight forward.
Thank to the handy Getting Started guide that's supplied with the Pro-1, anyone can easily setup this printer.
It took us about 45 minutes to an hour to setup the Pro-1 from start to finish, however this time included taking some of the product photos, along with the screen captures needed for our Print Driver and Software pages.
The 12-color LUICA ink system provides a color gamut that is unmatched by any other printer in this price range in our opinion, and the new Monochrome ink set produces rich blacks, greys, and metallic tones.
Lastly, Canon's Chroma Optimizer helps ensure your prints are the best that they can be by reducing any differences in ink droplet dimensions, giving you a more uniform pattern that appears flatter and smoother. While we believe that print quality and cost are the most important aspects to consider when looking at a printer, speed is also important. However, Canon made claims in the Pro-1's press release, and on their website, that the Pro-1 can spit out a 13x19-inch (bordered) print in just 4:20.
Either way, the Pro-1 can churn our some amazing prints in no time at all, however it's not going to win and land speed records. Below is a break down of the timing results we achieved using various paper types and sizes, printing full resolution images from my personal Canon EOS 50D, Sony's SLT-A77, and NEX-5N.
