I bought a EOS Digital Rebel in December.

Since then, I have moved - but the supplied software did not..

I am redoing my laptop and need the software - I called Canon and they will send it to me for $19.95 + shipping and handling

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the RAW processing program ? Or should I go "third party" ? Suggestions welcome !!

Many Thanks



JM

The general opinion is that Canon's software is rather bad for RAW conversion. It's interface just isn't that easy to use and the results are only OK.

I would suggest downloading the demo version of BreezeBrowser. I did a test awhile back and found it produced the best results. Better details in dark areas, better colors. But it was also the slowest. Not really slow, but speed matters for me so I keep with PhotoShop (which uses the same conversion library that Canon's converter uses.) Give it a try, you might find you like it better.

You might also try Raw Shooters Essentials (sp?). Its competely free (just some personal info, I believe.)

If you are a Microsoft Windows user I read somewhere recently that they have released their updated RAW image handler and it now handles Canon RAW files.

Go to: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

Have not tried this myself, just read about it.

all it does is allows you to look at the raw image. it is not a processor
