Sad to say that the MP-E is definitely not for me. With the ring lite, it’s rather heavy for me to hand-hold due to shaky hands. Even without the flash, pretty hard at 5x magnification. I’d definitely need a tripod and macro rail for this combo., personally. Props to those that can use it without support! :)

One shot with it, taken inside, as it was just too windy outside.

Tripod / rail are not the only ways of support.
5x magnification "pretty hard' - of course! 2X is hard enough.
Even at 1X, outdoors, some type of steadying the subject is desired. ie shooting a bug on a stem, hold the stem with your left hand, hold the camera with your right hand, resting part of the camera / lens on your left forearm. Now most of the movement is in sync, ie any movement in left arm will hopefully be transferred to the stem and the camera.

I used the MP-E65 for years and 3X was about my limit for hand holding using method above or similar and keeper rate would be much lower than at 2X. With the flash close to subject the flash duration should be very short eg in the range of 1/2000 second to 1/10000 sec or even shorter so some movement is no problem at all, as long as the movement is not resulting in the subject moving out of the incredibly small depth of field.

Unique flower. What’s it? Nice, regardless. :)

Has any one had any luck with anything but photoshop reading the raw files from the R? I’m on windows and I can’t get windows or Lightroom to open the raw files.....

I use DPP. I have not continued to check with various software but when I did comparisons a few years ago DPP does a better job, not surprising really. Canon knows it's own files better than others.

You need the CC version of Lightroom to read CR3 files, but Adobe's free DNG converter will convert CR3 to DNG, which anything can read. In addition, FastRawViewer now supports CR3 directly for quick viewing or sorting/rating.

More than likely, if you remove the battery, and click all the buttons after removing the battery, this may do it. I don’t see one of the tiny pen type cells in the body, at all. Otherwise, you could try doing a software update, or, clearing all camera settings, etc. Not cool to have to go thru this in vacation. :(

I have been using Lighroom for years, but just for fun, tried DPP last week, downloaded the latest version, but it doesn't seem to work. For example, if I use the shadow slider to bring up shadows, the shadows get brighter for a second and then returns to the original brightness, but the slider stays at +5 or whatever. This is true for shadow, hightlights and brightness, have not tried all the sliders. And if I try to use auto lightning optimizer, the program crashes.

Anyone knows what going on?? Well, I like lightroom, so this is not a problem, just though it would be nice to try the DPP. I used it some ten years ago before I had lightroom.

DPP works fine for me.

Ok, thanks. I just tried DPP on some older files, taken with 7D, and it works just fine. The problem seems to be with the files taken with the R. The DPP version is 4.10.20.1 and it should support the files taken with the R
