Hope DPP3.X can support New 1DX2, DPP4 is not good :-(

DPP3 is much more easy to use, DPP4 too many option and slow Smiley Mad

Sorry, it won't. I am pretty sure that Canon is not going to support older cameras on DPP3 - though I have no inside knowledge.

Don't know, you are certainly free to call and tell them. But many people use DPP4 just fine.

DPP4 is a decent application for use with consumer cameras.  I think a professional grade camera, like the 1DX2, is worthy of better, and more sophisticated software, like Adobe Lightroom.  Don't you?

I kinda figure it is just early in the development cycle.

"New 1DX2, DPP4 is not good"

 

If you bought a 1Dx Mk II and are relying on DPP 4 or 3 or whatever number as your editor, you have more problems than it just not working!  Smiley Surprised

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

In a word, no. It all depends on what you're requirements are. If all you're doing is cropping, rotating, applying lens corrections, and adjusting brightness, contrast, white balance, tone, etc., then DPP 4 is perfectly satisfactory and arguably supports a more straightforward workflow than do PS and LR. But for really elaborate corrections, like rescuing a horribly exposed but mission critical image, PS may be the only thing that can save you.

 

IMO, many photographers who use Photoshop don't really need it; they're using it because of its reputation, not its functionality. If that doesn't bother them, it certainly doesn't bother me.

I would say that DPP 4 with its adjustable midpoint is as good at rescuing horribly exposed images as any software out there. DPP3 on the other hand, was aweful in that regard.

If DPP4 is too slow, it sounds to me like you need a computer upgrade.
