I have a T2i, and never installed the Canon software before. But now I have a new Windows 7/x64 computer, and would like to install Canon's stuff on it. But I'm confused about the two Browser programs. The Downloads page shows both as available for my camera and O/S, and it's not clear which one I should use. Can anyone explain what the difference is, and which one I should use?

If you need software for post-production, just install Canon's DPP.

Otherwise, I would ignore the rest.

Peabody, that's a good question that has often puzzled me. I hope some one can elaborate a little further than Mclaren.

I like the old Zoombrowser to find photos. It brings up all the file folders by date. I loaded up the new software when I got the T4i a few weeks ago. It said some of the old program had to be removed. Not sure what it removed. Zoombrowser was still there and Imagebrowser was there too. I opened Imagebrowser and it found every image on my computer, even pics from emails, I just wanted my old file folders by date. I have to learn the new program I guess. I hook up the camera, Imagebrowser opens and I tell it to transfer my photos. I close it and open up Zoombrowser and look at my file folders.

This is my first time here so I hope I'm writing this in the right spot! :-)

From 2006 through 2012, I used Canon digital non-SLRs. I've organized and saved many thousands of photos in ZoomBrowser for years. ZB works/worked great and I love my files organized by date taken. I use ZB for simple editing, red eye, etc.

I bought a T4i in Dec. 2012. When I upload from my Rebel T4i to ZB the photos transfer but not the videos. So, I installed ImageBrowser EX. All my photos in ZB transferred in IB. So now I have photos in both ZB and IB. There are aspects of IB I do not like. I am panicking that some of my photos are showing up in windows "pictures" but not in ZB, in IB but not ZB, etc. And IB has placed edited photos into date folders based on dated edited, not shot. I just really, really want all my photos in folders by date shot, with limited editing, and with the ability to upload video and stills at the same time with a simple command.

Can I just delete IB and stick with my beloved ZB? If so, how can I upload videos to ZB? Help please.

thanks!

ps - I do not shoot in raw.

I believe that ZB uses EOSUtilities to download photos from the camera(connected by USB cable to computer) into folders organized by date shot. If you simply use EOSUtilities by itself without going through ZB it will do the same thing and will also download your videos.

Once the photos and videos are downloaded you can then open ZB and use it however you wish.

I used to use IB to download and DPP to edit. ZB would always pop up after the download was complete. Now I use Lightroom as I am also shooting with a Nikon.

I still don't like Imagebrowser. It makes me connect my camera every time it wants to upgrade, and doesn't run very well on either of my fairly fast machines. I use ZoomBrowser to quickly cull the bad shots and then load them into DPP, although DPP is being replaced by Lightroom.


Photography is just a hobby for me.

Thanks. Hi rrblint - i've read here a couple times about downloading with a USB cable to the computer. Does it make a difference if I just stick my SD card into the SD card slot of my Lenovo desktop? thnx BTW - I just found EOS Utility on my desktop...I've never seen it before. I will try downloading using that. Thanks.
