Canon Digital Photo Professional 4 Splash Screen
From the Canon Professional Network:
 
Canon has released an updated version of its Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software, which now supports – in addition to its current range of full-frame DSLRs – the EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 70D, EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 7D, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 700D and EOS 100D.
 
Launched in September 2014, Digital Photo Professional 4 was Canon’s first sweeping change to its popular RAW processing software since its original launch. The latest version of DPP – version 4.1.50 – is a response to feedback from owners of older full-frame and APS-C cameras who are looking for the very latest RAW workflow solution.
 
Additionally, DPP 4.1.50 supports the recently launched EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM and EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM lenses, the profiles for which are now available for use with the Lens Correction function.
 
Commenting on the update, Mike Owen, European Professional Imaging Communications Manager, Professional Imaging Department, Canon Europe, said: “DPP 4.0 has proved incredibly popular with our customers and this latest update further extends its appeal to a wider range of users, such as those using the highly successful EOS 5D Mark II. Canon remains firmly committed to offering a complete range of products to photographers and increasingly its software solutions are playing a vital role in delivering the ultimate in image quality from capture to output.”
 
DPP 4.1.50: KEY FEATURES
 
  • Faster, real-time adjustments.
  • Improved RAW file workflow.
  • Better, more approachable user interfaces.
  • Compatible with 64-bit native environments.
  • Colour adjustments for specific colour gamuts.
  • Improved highlight recovery provides expanded tonality.
  • Improved shadow recovery function.
  • Support for movie playback.
  • Auto Lighting Optimizer can be applied to JPEG images.
  • Better integration with EOS Utility.
You can download DPP 4.1.50 now, free of charge, from Canon Europe’s support site here. Just click on your camera – EOS-1D X, EOS-1D C, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 6D, EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 70D, EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 7D, EOS 700D and EOS 100D – and select DPP 4.1.50 from the software options to download.

Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack
B&H has the Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack available for $59.95 with free expedited shipping. Regularly $109.95.
 
Note from Sean: I own and use one of these backpacks all the time. When I want to carry most of my gear, I take the Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x. But for all other times, I pack what I need into a Tamrac 5374 and hit the road running. It's been a very good bag for the outings that require less gear.
 
Don't get me wrong, though – you can stuff quite a bit into one of these bags. For my latest trip to Atlanta, GA, I planned on filming our family Christmas get-together with my DSLR gear yet I also wanted to be prepared to capture static images as well (just in case). Here's what I packed into the Tamrac 5374:
 
  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II with Battery Grip
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Battery Grip
  • Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L Tilt-Shift
  • Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
  • Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
  • Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
  • Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC
  • Canon 580EX Speedlite
  • Canon TC-80N3 Timer Remote
  • BlackRapid RS-Sport Extreme Strap
  • ND Filter and Step-up Rings
  • Flash Gels
  • Gaffer Tape
  • Microfiber Cloth
As you can see, this backpack can hold a decent amount of gear. ;-)
