I need software that i can use for my xsi.. I want to use EOS utility.. But I screwed up and bought a dell mini 10 with a screen resolution of 1024x600... EOS utility has to run off of 728 or higher... i have no option but to keep this computer. So i need a 3rd party software.. Whos the best? Thanks!!

Easiest solution is to installed Faststone image viewer (free). Reads Canon RAW with no probs.

Hack the resolution in Windows registry as to get 1152x864. Screen won't be as crisp as the netbook's native resolution but you should be able to install and use DPP.

EOS Utility does two things; acts as the interface for downloading files through a camera to computer usb connection and for controlling the camera from the computer. If you want it for the former, your best bet is to buy a card reader. The reader will appear as a new drive and you can easily download files by drag & drop or copy & paste. Card readers are cheap and have several advantages over connecting up the camera. If you want EOS Utility for tethered remote control, Lightroom 3 will do that and I believe Breeze Systems also has a remote control program.

Than I believe you're stuck using the Canon software in order to shoot tethered.
