Canon Digital Rebel XT

I recently took some photos in the RAW format with my new Canon Digital Rebel XT. I discovered that Photoshop won’t open them, yet. I never thought to use Canon’s software—Digital Photo Professional. Neither did David Pogue of the New York Times (see his article titled, A Cumbersome Picture)

Pogue took a bunch of photos in RAW format and couldn’t open them afterward. It turns out that and old shareware application, Graphic Converter can open the Digital Rebel XT’s RAW files. Maybe Adobe should hire them to work on their RAW plug-in support.

If you’re interested in digital photography you may want to read Pogue’s review of digital cameras a from a couple of weeks ago. He has a slideshow comparing images shot with the Canon Digital Rebel XT and the Nikon D70S.
