My friend with a 5D just let me know that images from a 5D look awesome in DPP2 vs. CS/2. I, too, have noticed the same. With my 1D, I prefer to use ACR to convert RAW images. They look fine with CS/2. This is not the case with the 5D.
But with my 5D, DPP2 is clearly superior. Files from a 5D need very littled done to them. With my bird photos taken with a 500 IS, the detail is incredible in the feathers . It's only seen, the difference, in DPP2 and not CS/2. Don't get me wrong 5D images look good with CS/2. They just look out of this world in DPP2. They print beautifully as 13" by 19" Epson glossys whether from CS/2 or DPP2. They just only look great on my monitor with DPP2!
I'm wondering if Canon placed new algorithms in DPP2. Ones that make color, contrast and sharpness unbelievable. This is what I see. It's very exciting. Please understand I'm no expert on PS. I love to use it but at the present time only use CS/2 to print with 5D images.
I don't know what Canon is up to but believe me that DPP2 and 5D are truly amazing. I've heard the 5D has a very mild AA filter. Maybe this in addition to DPP2 is yielding images my eyes can't believe. I was trained in night college photo classes in how to use film cameras but never imagined these results.
Can someone help me put the pieces together on this issue?
