I've been using Zoombrowser since I got my first digital (Canon G2) in about 2002.
I love the program, it is absolutely perfect for my needs and I've never had any desire to use anything else. It's very intuitive, it pops ups and downloads all new pics when I plug my camera in, exports to folder or email etc etc.

Then I "upgraded" to Windows 10..........

I went to download ZB to my new OS and find out they don't make a version for Win 10.

Then I find out Canon doesn't support Zoombrowser any more. I shake my head and wonder why they do things like this.....

I have a mittful of various Canon cameras and need to easily transfer my pics to my computer.

Anyways, I'm not going to sit here and throw darts at Canon, but rather I need to find something to replace it with that does the same thing as ZB.

I've searched the net and these forums, read some stuff, likely missed the best threads on this topic, but I need a decent program to do exactly what ZB does.
I like how I can plug my camera in and it invokes the ZB download new pics screen and puts them in a folder with date time etc.

Can anyone who has found something that works in Win 10 please comment? I really don't need or want something so complicated that will do everything including change the oil in my truck. Just basic and useful like ZB was is all I want. Plug in my camera or card reader and get the pics on my Win 10 machine like ZB.

Thanks.

You want old school? I'll give you Old School , the original Non OEM RAW converter for Canon is still around, and Windows 10 compatible.

BreezeBrowser!

It will feel very familiar indeed. :)

I'm pretty sure on Win10 you will still be able to tell BB to open and download images, you may need to add this one to complete the functionality though;

Old school is ok with me.

The software bundled with the new models like the EOS Rebel T6i no longer includes ImageBrowser EX or ZoomBrowser EX. The applications being provided now are only Digital Photo Professional (EPP) and EOS Utility. To display images in a slide show, you can use other software such as the image viewing software built into the operating system to download JPGs.

Unlike the early days of digital, a number of other programs have come along that provide equivalent or better capability than Zoombrower, so Canon apparently no longer saw a need to maintain it any longer.
I can't suggest what to use for page layout printing of photos, like the capabilities of Zoombrowser. I also am unable to comment about Win10 inherent capability to recognize RAW files for file management purposes (e.g. copy RAW from camera/memory to harddrive) independent of DPP.

I see it as less of a reason to criticize Canon, but much more of a reason to criticize Microsoft for dead ending so much software (apps and drivers) which ran on Windows 7 even the 64-bit version, with the launch of Windows 10!

I actually never tried to install it. I read a lot of info that it simply won't work on 64 bit Win 10.
Maybe I should just try and see what happens.
Thanks for that.

I have the original disc that came with Canon 7D has Zoombrowesr 6.5 on it. Will it work if I use it with Windows 10 64 bit ?

Canon says no, even to version 6.9.0a which is available at http://support-sg.canon-asia.com …nts/SG/EN/02002​09401.html (external link). But if I was you I would give it a try since a web search indicates some people got it to run with Win10, but they don't specify whether 32 or 64 bit. It's a free download and the attempt only takes a few minutes.

By the way, a solution disk 31.1A that does have everything that is Win10 (64 bit) compatible is available at http://support-hk.canon-asia.com …nts/HK/EN/02004​74302.html (external link).

I use Linux, there's some really good photo apps for it, it's also quite efficient. I was reading some information about it here: https://www.1and1.com …e-alternative-to-windows/ (external link) .

Check it out, I will let you know which applications are the best alternative of Zoombrowser but for Linux.

What did you find that works? All I want is a old ZB feature that let me take a 100 RAW files I would right click chose all of them and convert to jpeg. I could choose what size file I wanted it would convert very fast. That feature is gone .
I have some old EOS Canon utility with ZB on it.

Thanks in advance

Rob

Just saw this is a revived thread. I'm running Zoombrowser 6.9.0.1 on 64 bit Win 10. I think I upgraded to 10 so the zoombrowser just came along. I would try to install it and see.
