Bingo!  Smiley Happy This is where it belongs and the fact Raw doesn't support it.

Re: In-camera distortion correction

Sorry, no offense meant. If you would have asked "Does the T5i offer distortion correction" you would have had your answer in the first reply. Remember, we are users just like you.

Right, sorry, I sometimes write things faster than I think.

 

Thank you for your answers, I just checked the 80D's manual and it also has distortion correction Smiley Very Happy

 

And I'm aware that post-processing with a proper program will be better.

Michal,

Your fellow users are happy to help and answer questions, (so am I) but product research is to a certain extent on you.  Take a little ownership, dowload an 80D manual and look for the feature.  We've given you the tools, now use them. 

 

This is not ment to be harsh, but your question is like asking what the specs are of a particular model and then expecting someone else to look it up for you. 

 

Some of the best lens correction is provided in post processing software, LR, PhotoLab, Affinity, etc.  If you rely soley on in camera correction, you may be disappointed.

 

Welcome to the forums, hope to see more of you here. 

 

I'm really glad I came across this thread before I purchased the Canon T7i. I only shoot jpeg. I have no interest at all in any computer software. That's a different indoor hobby. Since I'll be disappointed in Canon's jpegs, I'll go with another camera that I'm looking at which produces great jpegs. Thanks for the heads up!

It may not have data for all Canon lenses.

Any lenses not pre-installed can be added by the Lens Registration Tool or EOS Utility.

One crucial point that has not been pointed out is that in-camera lens distortion correction only applies to Canon lenses.  If you use any third party lenses, the camera can read the lens make and model number, which it writes out to EXIF data.  

 

But, the Canon camera will not apply lens correction of any kind to a third party lens.  Not even the free Canon DPP software will process third party lenses.  For third party lenses, you need third party software to perform lens correction.

One big disadvantage of performing in-camera distortion correction is you will forfeit any AF point data.  The image content is being re-arranged when distortion correction is applied.  The correction can cause the original content under the AF point to shift slightly, which means the AF point data may no longer apply.  

 

Last I checked, the Canon DPP software will not display AF point data for JPEG files with in-camera distortion correction applied.  However, other third party software applications just may display them, anyway,  This can be misleading, but AF points are larger than the little red boxes that you see in the viewfinder and AF point displays on a computer.
