So... according to this: Canons pageexternal link and this Microsofts pageexternal link the 5d is fully compatible with Windows 7.

Funny, the drivers seem to be missing --or am I just missing something?

What happens when you connect your camera to your computer? EOS utility can't connect? Unsupported device popping up asking for drivers?

So far I've found Vista32 WIA drovers on the Canon-Europe site (why is the EU site so much easier to find stuff on?), but 64bit is a no-show.

i posted a thread about a win7 update that's broken both of my 5d's and my 5dmkII, but a mod moved it to RAW/post processing section, because it obviously wasn't a thread about camera bodies... :-(

thread is here.
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=781082
i think it's serious, and i'm not the only one having this problem. no idea why the mods moved the thread either. i am completely unable to tether with any of my cameras now, and it sucks.

Hi opus13
Try installing the drivers in compatibility mode. Right click the driver executable, select the Compatibility tab, check the box marked “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” and select the appropriate OS. Also, select the Run As Administrator option under the Privilege Level heading at the bottom of the dialogue.
Procedure is cited here: http://****/B0tCGexternal link
Hope this helps

On Vista64, depends on what do you want to do. Canon Ultility will detect 5D and let you download picture from it, but it will NOT let you shoot tethering.

@ Opus 13 + EOS 5D (Mk I)

Situation:
I'm using Windows 7 64-bit.
The EOS USB WIA Driver 6.0.0 for Windows Vista (VU600EN) would not install. Attempting to run in compatability mode did not help.
Can't find any other more recent drivers available right now.
Using latest ZoomBrowser EX 6.4.1.11
My PC would not recognise my 5D or download any images.

Research:
http://www.usa.canon.c​om ...egoryid=215&modelid​=11933external link
confirms the 5D should 'work' with Win7 (and Vista 32/64-bit), using Vista drivers.

Partial Solution:
Set in-camera Communication to: Print/PTP (not PC connect.)
At least I can now download JPEGs and RAW images (or use a card reader).
Digital Photo Pro 3.7.2.0 tackles the RAWs OK.

However EOS Utility and WIA driver do not work and so tethered shooting is still not possible.
I would have to return to my previous WinXP PC for tethered shooting, if necessary, and transfer the images to the Win7 PC for processing.

Presumably the old 5D MkI market is not worth expending Canon's resources on to develop new drivers.

Canon don't offer much, if any support for any 64bit OS.

The only real fix is to revert to 32bit OS.

Ever since XP64 bit people have cried out for more compatibility. No one seems to take 64 bit seriously and it appears they never will until that becomes the standard,which it sure hasnt made any big strides to become. Just about every OS has a 64 bit version, but still no major strides with manufacturers. When the majority get on board with 64bit and no ones equipment will work without manufacturer support, then you will see a lot of participation, but that doesnt seem to be in the cards. Until then you will have to count on independent hit and miss work arounds or as someone else suggested, give up 64bit. A shame considering so much computer hardware has 64bit support. Hardware pulling us one direction and software, accessories, etc holding the line on old technology.

Got capture one pro 5 on trial and thought I would shoot on my windows 7 64bit laptop but it seems like there are no supported drivers guess i'll be going back to vista for now. My windows 7 32bit pc works fine with canons 5d drivers shame.

Card reader.

You mean people actually connect their camera to DL images?

I've also come across this problem and cant shoot tethered with my 5D in Win 7 64bit.

Have all the latest software versions but no luck so far. Have an inquiry into Canon..and we'll see what they say to do.

Here's what Canon Canada says re: 5D, Windows 7,Canon Utility

Thank you for your E-mail inquiry. The operating system (Windows 7 64bit) you are running is not compatible with your camera. Even though you can put your camera into PTP mode and connect, you would require to be in PC Connect mode to utilitize the Remote Shooting feature - this will also require a driver, of which there is none due to the incompatibility.

So, it looks like no driver and no inclination to make one.
I have inquired about running in 'XP Mode'....havent tried that yet...and we'll see what they say.
