Hello,
*
I was wondering if I should buy a used Canon t3i/ 600d in great condition, but without the CD software?
*
I'm concerned that I won't be able to download the software on the internet since it won't come with any software cd and I don't have any previous canon software on my Macbook Pro.
*
Can anyone help me on this? I need to know asap!
*
Also, it's in spanish. How can I change the language on the camera to english without the cd?
*
Thanks

Heya,

The software is free on Canon's website. So don't worry about it. You just enter the Camera's serial number in, and they give you access to the software to download.

The EOS software will allow you to change language, name, etc.

Very best,

And if you can't install it on your computer because it needs the cd, jsut do a search for the registry hack.

I never use cds to install software. here is link to software and drivers. in the camera settings will be a place to change language. by using pics in manual you can change language.

The software sucks anyways so you wont want it. Get lightroom/Photoshop.

What is? The Canon t3i?

Someone wants to sell it to me, with canon zoom lens efs 18-55mm lens, for about $270 US dollars. That seems pretty cheap to me. Am I wrong?


Also, some people are saying that I need the software cd first before being able to download any software updates online. Wonder what the real story is.

Anyone bought a used Canon WITHOUT the cd and was later able to download/update software online?

By the way, I will mainly be using this camera for hd videos.

Don't worry about the software, if the camera is at a price that works for you then you should be good to go.

I don't see all the fuss about software there are more cameras for sale without software than with.
If your getting the body,lens,battery and charger and your happy with the condition it should be a done
deal at that price. As someone already mentioned the language is within the camera menu. Manual and
software easily downloaded go for it. I should have spelled out used cameras for sale.

I don't believe you can download DPP and install it from the Canon site, those links are (were) only updates when I last tried. The others I think you can.

There is a registry hack for windows that I can confirm works, not sure if there is something similar for a Mac.

The other alternative is to do some searching for a download of the original version and then apply the update from the Canon site.

Interesting, they have added that option since I was last on the Canon site. Thanks for the heads up.

Yeah they started doing that 5 or 6 months ago. You have to enter a valid serial number - well I guess it has to be valid - never tested a garbage number.

And the serial number doesn't have to be for that model. In the T3i screen I put in my 5dc serial number and downloaded the software.
