Re: DP2m Lens Distortion Problem

Today I'm into processing the 17-Mile Drive, Pebble Beach, Carmel CA, set in which MANY of my horizon lines aren't straight... either DP2Merrill or 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens on the Canon 5DII. I've found on several that the 16-35mm actually HAS some barrel distortion, which I can fix in Canon's processor Digital Photo Pro (DPP).

For the DP2Merrill crooked shots, I've saved JPEGs or TIFFs, then opened them in DPP and used the adjusment/crop tool. It has grids and I can see by laying it on the horizon of the DP2Merrill shot that the DP2Merrill horizon actually does NOT have distortion... it's just plain crooked (by my holding of camera) and I've cropped and straightened. I'll get a few of the finished photos up onto flickr.

It would be useful if SPP had a similar adjustment/crop tool as in Canon's DPP.

Best regards, Sandy
