  • Created discussions HP Deskjet 2540 ink wastage?
    I've just bought an HP Deskjet 2540 all-in-one printer mainly for documents, though I'm impressed at how far photo printing at this level has come since I last looked at it a decade ago. Given that...
  • Thanks for the reply, Yes, I'm talking about volume anamorphosis, which I usually notice a lot more in photos than videos, even when it seems the video is an ultra wide shot. I've also been looking...
  • I know what the distortions are, but it's something I don't often see in wide angle shots in movies and well produced TV shows. When I do notice it on TV, it's usually on something like the local...
  • Thanks, What's the image quality like of corrected images. Do they end up noticeably softer if you pixel peep? With Canon's DPP lens correction, it softens images slightly, but it's not too...
  • Created discussions DxO ViewPoint file formats
    I process my RAW files in Canon's DPP, export as TIFF and then finish in Gimp. I've been looking at the stand-alone version of DxO ViewPoint, which may be useful in correcting distortions in wide...
  • I stumbled across this 12mm video lens for SLRs and noticed that the stretching and distortions that become more extreme as you get closer to the corners with photo lenses such as the Canon 10-22mm...
  • Created discussions Dark Frame Subtraction in DPP?
    I have some old long exposure CR2 photos that were taken without long exposure noise reduction (I believe the camera does dark frame subtraction directly on the CR2 file). Is it possible to apply...
  • Sadly, Asda have axed photo printing in all their branches. It was great value and quality, and a nice experience to be able to enter your files, do your shop, then pick up the prints on the way...
  • I have a 1000D that has developed a few dead/stuck pixels. I found the trick to do a manual sensor clean for 30 seconds to make the camera remap the pixels, and this did work the first couple of...

  • Created questions Creating Win8 shortcuts
    In Windows 8, how can I create a shortcut to open a folder in a specific app, rather than just opening the folder by the default app (Explorer) or starting the app in its default folder? What I'm...
  • The images was from DPP, no other app had been used. I just re-opened the RAW file in DPP and set sharpening to 0. The speckling is less obvious because the image is softer, but those 1px dots are...

    Artifacts 2: Converted from RAW, no sharpening.
  • Replied in DPP Wishlist
    That would definitely be useful, as would options in the lens correction settings to 'fix' wide angle photos where things get stretched the further you go from the middle. It seems to me, it just...
  • Replied in DPP Wishlist
    I'd like the ability to copy an image in DPP to the clipboard as normal image data, so you can paste it directly into another app. This should be available from the thumbnails view or in the...
  • They may have implemented the protocols, but I still wonder whether what they implement uses the full bandwidth of the USB2 spec. As I say, it feels far too slow to me to be using all 480mbps when...
  • I don't know if the more expensive bodies are any better than my 1000D, but transferring files over a USB cable is painfully slow when plugged into a USB2 or 3 port on my computer. I'm sure it's...
  • Created discussions DPP Wishlist
    What little things would you like to see added to DPP or the other Canon software? By little things, I mean things that would be easy for Canon to add rather than major features that would take a...
  • Created discussions 1000D RAW image artefacts
    I sometimes notice black and white speckles in areas of fine detail in the RAW photos taken with my 1000D. They seem to be pure black or white pixels, so I'm wondering if this is the result of a...
