Is there any way to remote control a Canon Rebel T3i 600D from the computer, for example to take shots like every x lapse or something like? I also need the software to do it, I'm looking for a good software that works.
Here is a link to a video series from Canon's Digital Learning Series that teaches about using the bundled software from Canon to shoot tethered to your PC. There is a section on automated interval sequencing.
A free tethering solution http://digicamcontrol.com/ which support Nikon and Canon cameras [Disclaimer: I'm the developer]
There's also Helicon Remote software: http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconsoft-products/helicon-remote/
At right moment (2021) still the better option is download the EOS Utility from the Canon webpage.
Download the update, but if you don't have the CD or you don't have a DVD Reader (as me), then you can create the following key in the register:
- Open Notepad.exe
- Write the following code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
- Save the file as "Canon.reg"
- Double click on the file and you will be prompt if you want to run this into Register. Click Yes.
If everything fine, the installer won't ask for CD.
