Late last week, we told readers about a forthcoming update to Canon's flagship imaging utility, Digital Photo Professional. At the time, we said that the update -- which brings a raft of new features including native 64-bit support -- wouldn't be available until this Thursday in Japan, with a European release expected by...

Canon reinvents Digital Photo Professional, promises free download by month’s end


 
 

Last February, Nikon began beta-testing an update to Capture NX, the raw-processing application it bundles with some of its cameras, and sells for others. Four months later, we hear of a similarly-major overhaul coming from long-time rival Canon, whose Digital Photo Professional app is about to have a ground-up...

Canon 6D, Nikon D4 firmware updates solve issues; D4 gets new Remote Function config


 
 

Friday has been and gone, and unfortunately with news editor Mike Tomkins overseas, this week's Firmware Friday update slipped between the cracks. Fear not, though, firmware fans.

Stylish time-lapse shows another side to one of the world’s most built-up cities


 
 

Think of Hong Kong, and the picture in most people's minds is probably of the city itself: built-up, densely populated, teeming with life, activity and neon signs.

Canon 6D firmware solves YouTube compatibility problem


Canon's EOS 6D digital SLR lowers the barrier to entry to the company's full-frame digital SLR lineup, with a pricetag well below that of the EOS 5D Mark III, and even a little less than the now rather long-in-the-tooth 5D Mark II. That's made the 6D pretty popular with photographers and videographers on a tight budget, but early adopters have...

Autofocus reality revisited: How does the Canon EOS 6D measure up?


A few months ago we published a series of articles showing that certain Canon lenses on the newest Canon cameras -- the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS-1D X -- autofocused more accurately than on earlier Canon bodies for center-point, single-shot autofocus.
