I don't think EOS Utility is getting much development resources from Canon - all they seem to do is add support for new camera models (and delete support for older models).

Your best bet is to go with a 3rd party software package that's designed specifically for professional tethered shooting. Heck, even the sample program that comes with the Canon SDK (Software Development Kit) has more bells and whistlers for tethered shooting than EOS utility does.

Thanks, I have not looked into that, but I will now.

I get the feeling that with the new Wifi functionality being launched (6D today, most cameras tomorrow), canon software will see more refinement + features. Especially EOS remote and EOS Utility, I would hope.

Edit: From a quick glance, Camranger looks promising. I'll check it out.

As a software engineer, this is a really bummer.

As WaltA suggested, maybe you should look at the Canon SDK.

I had saved that for meddling around for later, did not think I would need it for this.

Thanks.

Yeah, there's some good tethering software out there - I would go that route before trying to build it myself. Unless either there is some feature you absolutely have to have and all other software does have it or you get joy out of poking yourself in the eye with a sharp stick.

To be honest, I don't have to have this feature. I can just use the mobile app (EOS Remote) but it's slightly less convenient, and the setting seems such a simple oversight, that I couldn't let this go without making sure I'm not missing something. I mean it's probably a one line flag in some config file somewhere!

'auto_transfer_to_lapt​op' : false

C'MON!

Here's the best solution as of now.

1. Select RAW + JPEG small 3 (smallest size)
2. Select the option in EOS Utility to 'Transfer only JPEG to laptop when shooting RAW+JPEG)
3. Delete all JPEGs when done shooting.

This still doesn't solve the problem but it's the easiest thing to do right now.
