Canon Digital Photo Professional Software - DPP

"Hello Bruce

Great website. Interesting to see your product line up is similar to mine.

First camera I got was A620, a fantastic camera and still is, before upgrading to G12. Considered M5 mirrorless but the EFM lenses were somewhat disappointing and ended up getting G1x II

You mention you prefer raw processing. What settings do you use for noise reduction on DPP?

I couldn't even replicate or beat the noise reduction quality that the camera JPEG produces compared to RAW noise reduction! I noticed DPP seem to suffer some form of colour bleed when applying NR


Hi Phil,

Thanks for your question about noise reduction and Canon's DPP (Digital Photo Professional). Unfortunately, I can't help you at all. I've never liked or used Canon's software, except initially, a long time ago with my Canon 10D. I rarely use noise reduction at all, and if I do, it's in Photoshop. I generally overexpose my raw files about 2/3 of a stop over the exposure my Canons want to give me. I only use noise reduction in the event I missed the exposure and am underexposed.

I've wanted to go mirrorless for quite some time, but Canon has been way behind in investing their resources adequately to compete with the other mirrorless. The rumors of a full frame Canon mirrorless are the only things holding me back from getting a Sony.

Thanks again for your question and keep in touch,
Bruce
