Action to fix 5D II black dots...
Dec 7, 2008

Since it will probably take some time for
Canon to fix this problem, I played around
with Photoshop and put together a small
action that will fix the black spots to the
right of blown highlights:

Note that I did not add any examples, since
I do not own a 5D II yet. You are welcome
to try the action on all the samples in the
various threads. I have done so, and the action
seems to fix most instances.

Note however, that it is not possible to correctly
identify all instances of black spots, and thus
the action will sometimes fail to correct a small
number of black spots, and will incorrectly affect
some regions with out black spots. I have tried
to make the action as discriminately as possible
but as always your milage may vary...
