  • Interestingly, a section in the manual for the new version of Canon Digital Photo Professional provides instructions for the new Depth Compositing function to combine focus bracketed images. It ...
  • The purpose is to sell many cameras and some lenses and make Canon a lot of money. Which it will. But I think people are missing some important aspects of Canon's likely success with the RP. It's...

  • The EF-M lenses are all designed to be compact, light-weight and relatively inexpensive. Very few people in the market for the EOS M50 would care about fitting these to a larger more advanced body....

  • The EOS M50 is fully compatible with all EF AND EF-S lenses with Canon’s EF to EF-M adapter.

  • Regarding the Canon EOS M50, it is misleading to suggest that kit is incompatible with EF and EF-S lenses; those lenses work well with Canon’s simple adapter, unlike the new RF series.

  • As  you discovered, EOS Utility is not compatible with MacOS Mojave yet, and Canon Camera Connect is fairly lightweight. If you are serious about tethering, I suggest you invest in better ...
  • Apple has released a new USB-C to SD card reader: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MUFG2/usb-c-to-sd-card-reader?fnode=37 There is no replacement for the camera adapter (yet?), but Apple has ...
  • You don't need to rely on a phone or wired release, though both of these work well on the EOS R. The alternative is the Canon BR-E1 remote. It works via Bluetooth, which has the advantage of ...
  • To turn off image review, go to the first Shooting menu (with the camera symbol), choose Image Review, and set the review time to Off; this is explained on page 118 of the manual.
  • Created discussion thread DPP Express
    Canon has released DPP Express for the iPad; now available (free) on the Apple App Store. It works with CR3 and jpeg files. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/explore/solutions-servi ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon DPP Express for iPad
    Canon has released Digital Photo Professional Express, an iPad app that provides a subset of post-processing functionality of Digital Photo Professional. It's available on the App Store. ...
  • Also, the M50 allows USB tethering with EOS Utility, and you can manually step focus.
  • You can use Canon Camera Connect to manually step focus. For automated focus bracketing, you will need some additional software. One application that does work with the the M50 is the excellent ...
  • Maybe they will release Android version later. The big challenge with Android is all the different versions. With iOS it is much easier to specify a recent software version and be confident that ...
  • That is for Camera Connect, not DPP Express.
  • On further exploration I found Canon Japan web page for DPP Express https://cweb.canon.jp/eos/software/dpp-express.html This appears to confirm that the software will be released in late October ...
  • No confusion. You totally missed the point and the sarcasm. I was referring to claim that the EOS R was inferior  to the 5D MkIV in “almost every way”. The EOS R is better in many ways because it ...
  • Thanks for letting me know that I can mount the RF 50 and 28-70 on a 6 DII. That is going to save me heaps.
  • Replied in DPP Express
    Canon has been fairly quiet about this software, probably because it's not yet released. The Japanese language brochure for the EOS R definitely mentions Android. I'm looking forward to an iPad ...
  • Replied in DPP Express
    Yes. Interesting also to read about "Professional Print & Layout" which, among other things is optimized for printing DPRAW high-definition files. There are lots of good things coming from Canon, ...
