The just-released Canon Digital Photo Professional version 18.104.22.168 does not address the Canon PowerShot G1 X RAW softness problem encountered with the DPP "High quality" (default) preference selected for processing.
Very disappointing. Here is the difference:
The "High speed" example is posted above the "High quality" example. The difference is dramatic.
I have not forgotten about the promised Canon PowerShot G1 X Review. The camera was delivered to me in Key West at the beginning of my recent Florida trip. I used it on the trip and now many of the standard tests are completed for it. These precise tests have taken a huge amount of time due to the point and shoot characteristics of this camera.
Then the 5D III showed up. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Review of course became my top priority. I hope to finish part two of the 5D III review and, when the proper DPP fix is in place, will try to complete the G1 X review.
