7D tutorial videos

Canon US has posted a series of 16 Canon EOS 7D tutorial videos on their Digital Learning Center site. The videos are available for download in different sizes optimized for playback on various devices, including versions for playback on the camera's rear LCD. But of course you can watch them online on your PC too. 6 of the 16 tutorials are about the camera's many AF options, but subjects also include live view, movie mode, customizing the camera, flash and the WFT-E5 Wireless File Transmitter:

Speaking of tutorials. Especially video shooters might also find these two tutorials interesting:

In other news, Adobe earlier this week made release candidates of Camera RAW 5.6 and Lightroom 2.6 available for download on the Adobe Labs site. Both have official support for Canon EOS 7D RAW files, and the word is that they are doing a much better job than the unofficial 7D beta-support found in Camera RAW 5.5 and Lightroom 2.5. Being release candidates means that the software might not be completely equivalent to the final versions, but should be very close. Download from Adobe Labs:

Capture ONE 5 Pro released

Besides Canons own Digital Photography Professional software, RAW processing software supporting Canon EOS 7D are still sparse. But now PhaseONE has released the latest version of their Capture ONE RAW converter and workflow software which includes support for EOS 7D RAW files.

The software are available as a 30 days free trial download.

Some time ago I was at a Canon arrangement presenting the 7D, and was told that Canon Denmark and PhaseONE was trying to intensify their cooperation. So it might be software worth trying?
