Don't know what it's really called, but I have a question.

I have the rebel xt and I am wanting to shoot a pic and prview it instatly on my laptop. I heard you can do this with the software that came with the camera. The thing is the software is packed up in storage. Is there another way or somewhere else I can download the software to do this?

Can I even do this? LOL! :lol:

Thanks.

It is called Tethered shooting and you need to use the EOS utility to do it. You might be able to download it from Canon.

You can find the latest version of EOS Utility on Canon US site.
If you tell me which camera you have, I’ll give you the direct link.

Two things are to be remembered, though..

- You cannot install software from Canon site directly; you have to have at least some of the original software (ZoomBrowser, DPP, EOS Utility) already installed to be able to do the update.
You can play with some Registry keys, but I am not sure if you want to do that.

- Remote (tethered) shooting will not give you the PREview of the shot.
It will be the POSTview actually, you’ll see the image right after the shot is taken.


What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

I use a 350D at the moment, and in order to shoot tethered you have to use the EOS utility like stated above, but the cool thing is that you can iuse both EOS utility and Lightroom together and have your shots go directly there.

Wow this is awesome! I wonder how they did this. Thing is, i see the pros do studio shots, and their "previews" show up on a 40" flatscreen monitor. All i got is a 14" laptop.

Did you download the software manual? It can be found by going to this (external link) page and then filling in the drop downs for what you are looking for.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Ok thanks everyone, got everything working finally!!

:)

I actually got the software installed by editing the registry and just downloading the update from the Canon site. Worked like a champ.

It's easier to hook it up to a tv imo.

I don't know about XT, but rebel take a while to sync the image especially if it's raw.

Could you tell me what registry settings you needed to adjust to get this to install? I have a Rebel XT and all the software that came with the camera but cannot get the Utility to install so I can't figure out how to do the tethered shooting. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks
Jen
