Canon RAW (*.cr2) codec in x64?
Has anyone anything new information about Windows 7 x64 and Canon RAW codec? I mean thumbnail view in explorer. Canon has it's own editing software, Digital Photo Professional, and that works fine. So editing is not my problem.
Hello friends I am thinking to buy Full HD Camcorder and found Canon LEGRIA HF R16 better in price range. What you think about it? Is it good to buy or Sony HDR-XR150 is better. Please comment.
