Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens was introduced back in June 1993. It is an old lens but many photographers still like it included me. It is sharp, light, and fast. It contains two high-refraction lens elements and one Gaussian optics. It becomes 80mm equivalent with attach to 1.6x crop SLR camera with APS-C sensor like Canon EOS 400D Digital or his brother Canon EOS 40D Digital. It is a wonderful portrait lens.

As a blogger, I love to take lot of photo and video during travel. However, I don’t like to take my bulky SLR camera along when just having lunch at restaurant. But I want to take the photo of the food & drink and post it here. Apple iPhone 4 camera can record HD video (720p) @ 30 fps with audio and 5-megapixel auto focus still camera with LED flash for photo. Lastly, those Photo and video are geotagging. Can Apple iPhone 4 Camera manage to perform these tasks for me? Let’s find out…

Hmm… What is this?
Based on the name, you should know a little bit that it has something to do with images. DIM handles the copying of images from your digital camera’s memory card to your computer.

DIM only does one thing. It copies files from your camera’s memory card to a destination directory. In addition, the file can be renamed while it is copied to a more “useful” name than your camera might have provided. However, DIM does not provide for browsing, viewing, modifying, adjusting, printing or any of the other functions of the many fine image browsing and processing programs that are available.

Why do I use DIM?
Due to the slowness of Canon EOS 400D Digital USB 2.0 via EOS Utility (WIA). I use a generic USB 2.0 memory card reader to copy images from memory card to computer. It is hard to copy images manually. Therefore, a tool like DIM helps me a lot. After configured DIM properly, all I need to launch DIM and press one button in order to copy images to computer. It is just as simple as ABC. :)

Where can I get DIM?
DIM can be downloaded at DIM website.
