Dual Pixel RAW was one of the big things of the new EOS 5D Mark IV at the launch, but since then it’s gone a bit quiet. I took a look to try and show you how Dual pixel RAW changes your photos.
There are three effects that can be applied in Canon’s DPP software to a dual pixel RAW image
- Focus shift
- Bokeh shift
- Ghosting reduction
I ventured out with a bag of fast prime lenses and the amazing Pomegranate Wolf. Once I’d processed the files I realised you’d need to see them moving so here’s the short video

You can process a dual pixel RAW image normally in Lightroom, but without the focus and bokeh shift or ghosting reduction that is possible using DPP.
