Re: DPP 4.7.1 Crop Settings

I took those 2008 with a Canon Rebel (the original from 2003.)  I notice the same thing with stuff taken with my Rebel 400D.  To be fair, I haven't tried to edit anything in between those dates and stuff I shot last month.  I'll just have to do some tinkering and see what I can figure out.

As Waddizzle pointed out, the Exif data in those early Rebels probably don't include aspect ratio, since aspect ratio wasn't a selectable option on most Canon DSLRs until much later. So if current versions of DPP are trying to default to the aspect ratio to which the camera was set, the best you can hope for is that the program will realize, in the absence of any relevant Exif data, that you were using a camera on which 3x2 was the only possibility.

 

That said, it would be nice if DPP let you set the default to "free", since some users say they prefer it, and to manually add aspect ratios to the list. But neither of those options appears to exist.

I think your complaints are without merit.  What camera are you using NOW?  There are menu options in many models to include cropping info, or to leave it blank.  You should read the instruction manual for your camera, because I am betting this is the issue.

Re: DPP 4.7.1 Crop Settings

I'm using the 650D now, I thought I indicated that already, maybe not. 

 

Are you talking about the menu options within the camera or in DPP? 

 

 

I went through all of my preferences in DPP, but I see no mention of cropping.  I do like how I was able to set it up so that my sharpness is default setting is at 7.  

 

My in camera aspect ratio is set at 3:2 which is where it should be, correct?

Yes, 3:2 is the aspect ratio that uses all of the camera's pixels.

I was referring your camera, not DPP.  I think there is info in the EXIF data that describes the aspect ratio.  I do not have your cameras, so i cannot check your model.  I have newer models  BTW, you mentioned 20D and 7D, and now it is a 650D.

My 7D Mark II gives me the option to include/exclude cropping information in the EXIF data, for example.

Re: DPP 4.7.1 Crop Settings

Re: the 20D and 7D:  No, I think another poster who replied to this thread mentioned that he had some experiences with those bodies, but that was not me.  I've only had the 650D.  

 

I'm thinking that as long as I use this software, I'm just going to have to just spend the extra few seconds to change it every time. It is free, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much.  

 

Thanks to you and everyone for your responses.

This is why it is a bad practice to hijack other user’s threads.  Not only is it confusing to people trying to reply, but it can send email alerts to the original user about your issue, which IMHO is impolite, at best.
