Question Digital Shots onto Computer....

I was wondering if someone could assist me please...

At a photo expo I attended here in Australia one of the photographers held a seminar about using Lastolite studio flash equipment, and he had a photographic model for the shots.

Anyway, he had his Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III camera attached to his laptop computer and every time he took a photograph the image appeared on his screen.

I have three questions in relation to this...

1). How did he achieve this i.e what program would he have used (if any)?
2). Is the program included with the camera when it is purchased, or, is it an extra?
3). Do the images still save to the camera memory card, or; are they saved into the laptop somehow?

Thanks for reading this and the ever helpful advice that I receive from Pixalo members.

Cheers
Dean.

Re: Digital Shots onto Computer....

I have done this. Just trying to remember how

Ah now I remember. If you open Canon EOS utility (provided with the camera) with camera attached you can set the options there. Look in the "Control Camera" tab. It is possible to save both to card or computer or either.

You can also do it wirelessly but the kit to do this is a bit on the pricey side.

I also think there is a Canon utility called "Remote Capture". This may have been superseded now but if not should be available for download if it is not on the disc.

Hope this helps

Roger

Re: Digital Shots onto Computer....

Dean as Morlandroger say,s open canon EOS utility thats if you use a canon camera and have the discs that came with it. Go to camera settings / control camera remote shooting. You have to connect your camera to the PC from there you should be able to access the what the camera see,s and you can even take pics from the pc with this utility.

To add.... I believe you can set Both, or either/or.....

I have not tried this btw....I dont use the USB leads, as I have a multi-card reader, and the software I had kept falling over every time microbodge did update tuesday...

I believe my modest EOS350D can be set to trigger by Computer Control, and "Shoot without card" can be set in the camera to enable the images to go straight to computer.
Its is s USB connection, and then the Camera becomes a peripheral, the back screen on the camera can be either "Echoed" by your computer screen, or replaced by, and supplied drivers from the software disk will take control of the buttons on the camera...

Your camera, (5D mk2...?) according to this...
(source= Canon 5D full-frame 12.8 megapixel information, reviews and specification D5 , about half-way down the page)
Quote:
A USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface allows rapid transfer of images from camera to computer, ideal for shooting straight-to-hard-drive with the camera tethered to a computer in a studio environment, thus providing full screen previews of images as they are shot. The EOS 5D also has a Video out interface to allow playback and review on a TV monitor, and is PictBridge compliant to support direct printing to any compatible photo printer without the need for a computer. It takes both CompactFlash Type I and Type II cards, including cards of 2 Gb capacity and larger.

New software

The EOS 5D is supplied with the EOS Digital Solution Disk v11, which includes a new version of Canon’s Digital Photo Professional (DPP) RAW processing software – now at version 2.0. DPP now supports RAW images shot on all EOS digital cameras from the EOS D30 onwards, and includes support for Picture Styles. Improvements and additions are aimed at improving functionality and workflow efficiency for professionals, and include: easy image selection with three levels of check marks; real-time adjustment of sharpness; improved image correction (Copy Stamp); enhanced image transfer function –single image transfer to PhotoShop is possible; extended colour space support, now including Apple RGB and ColorMatch RGB; and improved usability of the CMYK simulation function.

Also provided is on the EOS Digital Solution Disk v11 is ZoomBrowser EX (PC) and ImageBrowser (MAC) v5.5 for managing images, EOS Capture v1.5 for remote shooting, PhotoStitch v3.1, PhotoRecord v2.2 (PC) and RAW ImageTask v2.2. The EOS 5D is compatible with CANON iMAGE GATEWAY , which provides a 100 MB online photo album.
This indicates (in red) that the program on your supplied software disk, EOS Capture v1.5, will do the job for you...

Although, as disks are notoriously so far out of date, as in, the drivers on mine were so old there was an interface for the Ark on it, check here
EOS Capture
for updates.
