Thread: Canons DLO in DPP

  1. #1

    Default Canons DLO in DPP

    Canons Digital Light optimisation is something new in 3.11.26 or so , just available for download.

    You can download lens profiles for a bunch of well used lenses including my 17-55,100-400, 70-200f2.8IS and mkII , 10-22, 35L etc.

    What it does is attempt to correct for known elements in the light path, the lens (ca, distortion etc but a lot more) and the sensor (aa filter etc).

    So does it work?

    Here is an image I took with the 7D and 17-55 whilst walking the kepler track in April 2010.
    ISO 100
    f7.1
    1/30th
    Default conversion with ACR 6.6 and its 17-55 profile



    Heres a crop of the lower right 100% from the image above and one processed with DLO



    Heres a lower right crop of another image:


    This isnt sharpening. I have switched sharpening off on DPP, and only the default sharpening on acr. Zoom in to 400% on the DPP effort and you will find no sharpening artefacts.

    This is taken with a 100-400L at 400/5.6 ISO 160. Same, DPP/DLO on the right.



    I've seen even more impressive things from corrections for the 35L etc.

    Looks like Canon have done a great job!

    I have seen similar results from the lens corrections module in DXO Optics - except that costs $$$

    If you send me the RAW file I can put it into DXO for comparison.

    That's quite amazing, does it take long to process? I've never used DPP would it be a simple process to import to DPP then export into lightroom?

    It takes a bit to process the image even on my 2500k (5-10 seconds - dont know if its multithreaded etc havnt looked), longer if you add on the other lens optimisations ( distortion & CA etc).

    AFIK I think it can save the optimisation to the raw file (making it bigger) and also this prevents lightroom from reading it in!

    I have been making my adjustments in DPP/DLO and then exporting a tiff to photoshop and not saving the data to the raw (I expect I dont need to go back again but can always redo this point).

    I expect I could get the ACR shots looking closer to the DPP ones with sharpening and contrast BUT I can always apply those to the DPP shot too...

    Hey thanks Rob, never bothered with that program before, but this update makes it a rather nice raw tool, has an hdr toolbox as well.

    Just played with a couple of car shots from Napier

    I think Canon just has update downloads. You can probably easily find a copy somewhere else on the net though, and then update it via Canon.

    Not sure if its piracy if the only people who will use DPP already own a canon DSLR(?).

    You get the software free with an SLR but it isnt available, legit, to download (only updates).

    If you cant find it I can dupe one of my disks.

    It still baffles me why Canon don't have all their software downloadable as a CD - after all, if you need their software you have already purchased a Canon product no?

    As it happens, all of the Canon software updates install the full product. They just check for existence of a previous install before installing.

    A quick edit of registry to create something for the software to find and you're away.

    see: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/a..._software.html for instructions.

    It may or may not matter to you, but if you want to install the Canon tools (eg. for remote shooting) on to a netbook with a display smaller than 1024 x 768, you need to plug in an external monitor just for the installation. It runs OK on the netbook display afterwards. It just won't do the installation.

    I can't find it, it is back home in the UK. I hav just bought LR, but finding it all a bit overwhelming at the moment, having never used it before. I will plod on and give LR4 a go and if get into trouble, i'll holler.

    Typical, just as DPP got quite good!

    I highly recommend getting the Scott Kelby books if you are a LR beginner, within a couple of hourse (once you have gone through all the setup tweaks ETC) you will be up and running. Can get from Amazon or Book Depository. I would loan you my LR3 book except its already with someone
