Re: To convert raw takes forever.

You are processing way bigger files now with a 6D over a 450D. I went 400D to 7D and noticed that even with an overclocked i7 3770K, 16GB of quick RAM and most of my key apps on SSD and images on a 7200rpm hard disk, RAW conversion with DPP takes a while. It's just one of those things

It's one of the reasons I'm not that fussed about a 40mp camera either!

It would be good if Canon could make DPP more efficient but I generally do my PP, set off a batch process and distract myself with other stuff while it converts. Read DPR for example!
