Just updated my versions, I personally can't understand why Canon users would want to use anything else! But there you go, hey ho

DPP saved my bacon recently after problems with LR3 - can't knock it for that reason.
LOL....Horses for courses and all that jazz.....!!!
When it comes to software in particular photo software, Many many users seem to miss the disc that comes with their new cameras.
When you think about it, Its obvious, Why would a camera manufacturer supply you with a camera, But offer no means of using 100% of its features and functions.
Software though can/does not fit everyone's taste or personal likes/dislikes, I know many Canon users who hate Canon DPP, There are even more Panasonic users who despise " Silky Pix " software that is provided by Panasonic.....!!!
Its a bit like those who hate Windows and or Microsoft, For being successful and so much better than all the alternatives...........
Whatever, Each to his own as they say.....
That said it seem odd not to at least try the free option supplied, Before dumping a pile of cash in Adobes direction....Or indeed reading the instructions supplied with any hard/softwares, Be that on a disc or on-line.....? ? ?

I did not but Sony's RAW conversion software is limited in features and those that are there are quite basic.
Still like DPP but just found out my problem wasn't with LR but a faulty card - same card used on different occasions produced some corrupted files, some were important shots from a wedding shoot - nightmare - but manged to salvage them using DPP software.

I used to be one of them. The naff software I got with the 300D has evolved into something worlds apart. A lot of haters haven't given it a proper second chance.
Would it be worth trying DPP for RAW shots taken with my S100? Thing is, I've gone so used to using ACR for everything; I can do RAW conversions almost in my sleep with that!
But I don't mind trying something else, if there is a distinct advantage.
it used to be crap not anymore just get the latest upgrade
Colin, I upgraded to the latest DPP but can't see much, or any, difference. Do you know what changes have been made so that I can do a proper comparison?
Slow, what was your previous version and what's your new version?
Very latest features are HDR and Digital Lens Optimiser. (see here)
Learn about the new and improved features in DPP v3.11 with four new videos about the HDR tool, the Compositing Tool, Digital Lens Optimizer, and more
Thanks CL. Can't remember my last version. It came with E10. But it was very out of date. I think I did look through the vids but couldn't see anything that'd be of any use to me. Perhaps I didn't try hard enough. But I do like the Clarity slider in ACR which, as far as I can see, DPP doesn't have an equivalent.
I find I prefer ACR to DPP so have stuck with that. I have occasionally popped into DPP to see if there is anything new to get me to cross over, but still find that for me at any rate, ACR is preferrable.
In Norway there is a saying: "Smaken er som baken, den er delt" Personal taste is like your bum, split down the middle.
latest here you can lead a horse to water !
I always remember the wise words of the late Stan Laurel
