USB 1.1/2.0 specifies a maximum cable length of 5 meters (~16 feet) as a function of a minimum required transmission speeds. That's pushing the limit, to some degree, and will be highly dependent on how well the cable is made, shielding, etc. If you're worried about reliability, I would go under that, probably no more than 3 meters (~10 feet). USB 3.0 ...

It sounds like what you want is an Eye-Fi card. This will wirelessly transmit the photos you take as you walk round back to your PC. If you go for this option though you will need to use one of Canon's xxxxD or xxxD series cameras as it's SD Card only at the moment - no Compact Flash card option... (Thus, 7D / 5D series / 50D and before / 1D series can't ...

Based on the reading of the battery spec, no. The battery pack supplies 7.4v, while USB can only supply 5v. However, you can buy the ACK-E2 wall power kit to power the camera directly from a standard outlet.

I have 2 12' long active repeater cables and a 6' usb cable I have successfully daisy chained ONE of them from an actively powered USB hub to control my Canon 5Dmk2. As far as I can tell, you can't put a second one on the chain without another power source. I have seen 16' repeaters advertised for ~20USD. So in my successful setup it was: Mac -- 3' USB ...

It's called tethered shooting, and is mostly used in studios; as you say, it's not exactly a portable setup. It has the advantage of letting you write photos direct to disk, bypassing the memory card, and as you said, you can see a photo preview large and on-screen before shooting, like a high-res version of live view. Press photographers at football ...

TURN OFF WIFI. I struggled with this too but if you disable wifi and reconnect the USB you should be fine.

You must install EOS Utility to download pictures directly from the camera. Your computer will not recognize it as a generic drive. EOS Utility will also give you the ability to shoot tethered and control the camera from your computer. Your other option is to use a card reader instead.

The Nikon P330 camera uses a Nikon EN-EL12 1050 mAh battery. EN-EL12 battery capacity is nominally 1050 mAh as supplied. After market batteries may claim higher capacities and, regardless of label, may have lower capacities. If the charge rate is not limited by the camera itself when in-camera charging, or when externally charging the battery, maximum ...

This is not a bug. On the Canon 6D, USB file transfer is disabled when Wi-Fi is enabled. Try disabling the Wi-Fi first. Good Luck!

The image was corrupted by random bytes of information being lost in the data transfer. You can tell because each time information is lost, the image shifts (because pixels end up missing as it fills each line). It's also not an even number of pixel information since some of the times that information is lost, it causes the color information to get shifted ...

An USB 2.0 port can only supply at most 500 mA of power, and that is simply not enough to run a camera on.

There are a number of software programs that will handle tethered shooting: Lightroom 4, Phase One software's Capture One (which will also wireless transmit images to an iPad using Capture Pilot. These are full blown editing suites however. If you just want simple transfer, what about an Eye-Fi card? They have a direct mode which will send images ...

Sure, there is: From the Custom menu, on the fourth page, select Save/Load settings on card. Select Save and wait for the operation to complete. Move the card to another camera and select Save/Load settings on card again. Select Load this time and choose the setting file, it will have a CSD extension. Oh, just one small detail, make sure your camera is a ...

Get a SD-Card reader (or use the one in your MacBook pro if you have one) Have you tried "Image Capture" – there's some settings that will set default behavior of what happens when you connect the camera. Have you tried iPhoto?

Seems it is not possible http://twitter.com/#!/davidobm/status/92622013805494272 "Pity that Canon's 5D MkII wireless adapter (WFT E4 II) WFT server mode doesn't support the ability to record video"

Not to supplement but perhaps to complement. Assuming you don't shoot like crazy, try to get enough cards for the photo trip. This should be your first copy of all your photos and bringing. Do not offload photos if you do not have to. Then it makes sense to have an extra backup device. Some people use a computer's hard-drive or an external one (possible ...

Tethering also allows you to capture Timelapse images if your camera doesn't support this directly.

There are two things that matter for USB hubs, latency and throughput. Latency is a measure of how long it takes for information to pass through the device and throughput (or bandwidth) is how much data can move through the device in a given time. Your exact needs will depend on what you are doing, but if you want precise timing from the computer, then ...

First of all, I always recommend a card reader instead of a direct USB connection. It will be faster, you don't need special software, and it doesn't use your battery while downloading. I prefer the current USB 3.0 readers but many options exist. This looks like what you are looking for: GNU Canon Camera Utilities - http://canoncam.sourceforge.net/ I ...

I used this to take product photos for a customer, and he could see the output on a 15.4" screen before the picture was taken. Furthermore precise macro focus can be done way easier on a 15.4" screen than on a 2.5" screen.

Generally speaking, memory cards and usb storage drives are pretty comparably priced. So the real question is which would you have more use for long term? And will you reliably have any way to transfer images from your memory card onto the USB drive? Usually that's going to require a computer, and well, if you have computer you have a number of other ...

So, after digging around all day I found my camera : Canon S70. It is the only camera that comes close to the requirement list. It is around 100$ on ebay. It does not have a power socket, but there is this : http://sterlingtek.com/st10-trav---canon-powershot-s70-power-adapter.html On a side note, one of the reason I always preferred Canon was their free ...

The magic word is "tethered." Others have named some software that will do it, but anything that lets you shoot tethered will do it.

On the Mac, preferences for what happens when you plug in a camera or a memory card, are controlled by an app called "Image Capture". iPhoto, Lightroom, etc can automatically put preference settings here, but sometimes they do not get done. Plug in your 550D, then: Search Spotlight (apple+spacebar) for Image Capture. Select it and run. You should see your ...

I have a Mac and a 550D/T2i and when I connect my camera (without having installed the software), the camera/photos show in iPhoto. Try plugging the camera in while it is OFF, opening iPhoto, switching the camera ON, and then hitting the "Play" button on your camera that you use to review photos. You shouldn't need to install the software at all. I ...

According to Page 35 of the manual, the battery can only be charged in the charger, not in the camera. (note: the linked manual says DSCT70.pdf in the link, but the manual covers 3 versions including the T200).

This is more a workaround or side effect than a real answer, but since I installed Magic Lantern to camera, I could not reproduce this issue anymore (I had a dozen of connections since). Probably counts as a possible solution. UPDATE 1 - Another workaround: Disconnect camera, take a few shots (1-3), connect, try again. I discovered this by accident but it ...

After updating all my Canon software, EOS utility did not recognize my EOS 7D. After hours of uninstalling and installing German and English old and new versions of EOS utility and reinstalling the camera driver I found FAQ-ID 8201597200 on the canon website. I uninstalled all CameraWindow Programs and EOS Utility, restarted the computer, installed EOS ...

HAD the same problem but looking through the internet I finally found a workaround. The only thing to do is to do it in the right order! Camera - PC [no connection] Open your camera [let it boot -even if you have Magic Lantern-] Turn it to M [-manual] Insert USB cable to the PC first Insert USB to camera ..it worked for me like a charm

Just had this problem myself when trying to download images from my new Canon 6D. I'm a little picky, but: 1. I want to drag and drop from Windows Explorer, not a 3rd party program 2. I've have three card readers, but they don't recognize the newer/faster SD cards. So I just want to plug my camera in. Here's the fix: - turn off WiFi as mentioned above ...
