I heard there is a way to link my Canon 30D to my computer and control the shutter release with the computer. I am setting up a booth where people can have their pictures taken with models and I want to be able to take their picture with the computer, have it download directly to the computer, then be able to print out right away so the model can sign it for them on the spot and they can be on their way. How can I make this happen?

Go to CANON DWLD (external link) and download EOX UTILITY and a usb/fw cable and you're all set.

Unless I looked in the wrong places, I couldn't find anyplace where it says that EOS Utility won't work on an Intel Mac.

It's on the CD-ROM that came with your camera.

I can definitely control my XTi and now 40D with the lastest version of EOS Utility on my Intel iMac.

Call Canon customer service and I'm sure they'll be happy to sell you a replacement CD.
