As a recent convert from the dark side (Knickers or something like that :rolleyes: ) and now a proud 5D owner I have to express my disappointment with Canon's RAW conversion tool. I thought Thingy Capture was slow and clunky but the end result was pleasing. Is it me or is there genuinely no chromatic aberration tool in DPP. I would appreciate some guidance from the more experience Canon digital shooters. I use ACR but consider that a part solution as well. Apart from this it's nice to be back with Canon.

DPP is a nice tool for those who don't have or can't afford Photoshop CS and ACR.

There is no single post-processing application that does everything well. The last batch of shots I processed using no less than four software applications to go from RAW to print-ready JPEGs.

Have you tried Rawshooter Essentials 2005?
I'm just trying it now, and its had very good reviews in UK magazines and on this forum.

Even better, its free.

I use Phase One C1 and batch process my RAW. Start it and walk away. I don't know about CA but I usually just adjust WB and Exposure and both can be grouped to adjust same in situation/locaton w/ just a few click. Adjust one and select al similar shots and apply adjustment.

Phase One's Capture One won't handle 5D RAW files until later this winter... I use it FAR more than I use PC-CS2.

Oh... and you are DEFINITELY not alone in thinking the Canon software tool is a piece of crap. It is the most user un-friendly thing I have ever come across.

I used DPP once or twice, now only use Raw Shooter Essentials. It's a free download from Pixmantec
MUCH better than DPP

RSE won't do him much good unless they've added 5D support in the last 12 hours (last time I checked).

Just a quick question - how do you guys save an image after processing in DPP, Capture One, or Raw Shooter? As a jpeg, tiff or what before reopening in photoshop?

I notice DPP has a 'Transfer to Photoshop" menu option but it doesn't work for me. Photoshop fires up but closes again before the image in DPP gets loaded.

I think I read somewhere that DPP has a bug and will just close Photoshop.

Just curious, but what do you feel ACR is missing? I've been pretty pleased with it myself, but there are a still few things I would like to see including being able to see the AF points like with EOS Viewer Utility.

I'm sorry, but I can't agree.

DDP 2.0.3.7 is MUCH MUCH MUCH better than Raw Shooter Essentials 2005 in my opinion. I've downloaded RSE after reading your post and I noticed that the RAW treatment into RSE is so "urgh!" and its speed is so slow. So, your image will look much better when treating it into DDP.
