Using Canon Connect > DPP for RAW files from R7 to iPhone darkens image substantially!


I take RAW photos using my Canon r7.  To transfer to iphone I upload using Canon Connect and then it transfers to Canon's DPP so I can export to my iPhone 15Pro then can use Lightroom.  I have to edit the images substanitally since it is so much darker resulting in noise when lightened.



Can you share a raw file from your card (using a card reader) and one transferred from your phone?

Thanks so much!  I attached the two images. Hope you can help!!  I appreciate it!

Actually I was more interested in the raw file itself. That's why I asked about the file before any Camera connect and after when you have transferred it.

Anyway, a guess is that no tone curve is applied to the darker one.

I tried to upload directly from the SD card and it said did not accept CR3 files. There was no editing on either image. Wouldn’t a tone curve be an edit? If not, I’m sorry can you please explain how I could remedy. Thanks!

 A filehost is a good thing when you want to share large files.

Anyway, to view a raw file you need to set the black level, white balance, demosaic it, set a color matrix and crop the borders. Lightroom also removes bad pixels and adds a tone curve. The last part was maybe never done in the software you use to view the picture.

I’ve (obviously) never done this. It I’ll try!  Thank you!  I hope it works!!
