DPRSplit Beta 0.8.4: Now with Initial Support for Canon CR3 Format

In this versions of DPRSplit we've added initial support for Canon CR3 format (Canon EOS R):

  • It has only been tested on a very limited sample set;
  • EXIF/Makernotes data records are not transferred to output DNGs (CR3 files store metadata differently, in a way that is not directly mappable to DNG files).

The Unbearable Lightness of Mystic "Exposure" Triangle

We should begin by saying that the point of all of this is not just to criticize one of the most repeated photographic myths out there – that's just a tool, because an incorrect understanding of the way that exposure and ISO work, as well as their roles during the shooting process, leads to a falloff in the quality of shots that photographers get.

So our goal is to show how, by rejecting this myth, you (the now-enlightened user) will be able to more fully utilize the capabilities that your camera has, as well as to improve the quality of your photographs.

Red Flowers Photography: Now It is Easy to See the Real Picture

Some time ago, we published a couple of articles ("Red Flowers Photography: Real Problems or Deceptive Previews?" and "Forcing a Raw Converter to Render Tones Accurately") demonstrating a multi-step procedure that allows one to prevent Adobe raw converters from showing false highlight clipping.

Now, with the settings that allow one to cancel the baseline exposure compensation and support Highly Linear Mode that are being introduced in FastRawViewer 1.5.2, this process has become much more automated.
