My parents gained a reputation for salvaging birds fallen or thrown out [birds do not care to raise deformed or otherwise imperfect progeny] and some other baby animals. This happened quite a few years ago. A neighbor ran his riding mower over a squirrel nest and killed mom squirrel and all but two babes. He, of course, brought the two to my father. One was not saved but the other was eye-dropper fed, weaned to food and kept in a cage until it was felt to be big enough to release. The cage was put outside behind the house and a couple of days later, left with the door open. At first the animal hardly went more than a few yards out, but eventually took off and was gone. Several weeks later, when my father and I were working outside a squirrel came thru the grass and stopped about 20 feet from us. My father [intuition?] decided to sit down in the grass and then the squirrel came up to him and stayed for about two or three minutes before disappearing again [permanently]. Lucky for me, I had my camera ....
Canon DPP 4 Question
I use Canon's DPP for most of my editing and was wondering if any one on here has tried the dpp 4 version and what is your assessment of it and will it work retro with cameras such as the 7d or 5dii. I know they said they have change the logarithm with RAW conversion.

Anywhere it wants to.
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens - $1300
Again, never used. Bought from B&H, put a UV filter on it and put it in my pack. Being new it has no scratches, dents or wear marks. It's pristine.
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens - $1700
Never used. Bought from B&H took it out of the box, put a UV filter on and put it in my pack.
I'll include the filter and carry bag. I"m switching to mirrorless. With original box.
Camera bag for hiking
When I am hiking I carry a mirrorless camera, one extra telephoto lens, extension tubes, spare batteries, a few filters and a few other small items. I don't generally travel with a sherpa, and would prefer not to perish of hunger, thirst or exposure on my hike. Consequently, I need a camera bag that will not only accommodate my photography gear, but also two water bottles, a snack, a first aid kit, rain jacket, an extra layer of warmth, and a tripod or monopod. Most of the camera bags that I've seen have room only for camera gear. Any suggestions?
Trying To Leave Something Behind
Elsewhere, in the Main Photography Discussion section, a topic titled "What are your plans for your images after you pass on?" was posted. After reading the post and each of the replies, I considered how, or even if, I might reply. Would I be serious? factual? facetious? snarky? outright unrealistic? I didn't know, but those considerations continued on through the night, and now, into today. I was undecided, on so many levels, until I began to process the 'take' of yesterday's travels.
Some might find what we shoot utterly fascinating, as photographs, as documents, as reminiscences, whatever; others may be completely uninterested. That's as may be, but for myself, in the end, whether there's success or there's failure, I find myself in concert with those upon whose shoulders we've all stood, and with those who've passed this way before. And I'm just Trying To Leave Something Behind.

Why did Canon quit putting viewfinder shutters on their cameras?
I just don't understand why viewfinder shutters aren't available on all dslr cameras.
My old Canon A1 had one and it seemed to work fine. Now I have to keep track of a rubber cap to do what used to be done with the flick of a lever.
Does anyone have any ideas why a camera company would stop adding this feature to their cameras?
