Another disappointment with Sony:software - toni-a - 02-16-2018
Quote:A classic example of vendor lock-in.
Well Canon way is a very ethical and efficient way to keep their customers: They offer you free software that works only on their products.
It's like a special offer with every Canon camera you buy (new or used) you have a free software bundle. Without any monopole plenty of alternatives out there.
For me it works, I am missing DPP and zoombrowzer..

Absolutely, this is why it's a very bad idea.

Me too. I was pissed off by Nikon software in 2003 and since then never looked at manufacturers' software. Not only I was not pleased by features, but quality was very bad. It seems that as they might be good in making hardware and firmware, they aren't in making "regular" software (which puzzles me, because I believe they outsource regular software development. Or they should).

I am a happy user of Canon's DPP too.

It seems Canon DPP is much better than other camera manufacturers software.
Let's not forget that capture one is the manufacturer's software for phase one cameras...
I tried software that came with other cameras I bought (olympus, fuji and Sony) Canon is miles ahead
Canon DPP skin tones are excellent and you will find plenty of Canon users using it
