Windows 7: Who owns a canon camera

Who owns a canon camera

I do ! they do not have an update on software for W7. I have used Zoom Browser which came with my Camera for several years on Xp .

There are no updates shown on their web pages and MS tells me the program is not compatible with W7. gee they only had at least 8 months to update.

Oh! my camera is now a throw away just like all the other junk out there today !

If your looking for a job their web sites are excellent; for support forget it.

I don't think they give a damn and please hold the comments on how good their camera's are... I'm dealing solely with software. Of course i can download other software that is likely far better etc. That's not the point. That's what they want you to do !

Can you not install under the XP compatibility option? I have several bit's of software running under Vista and XP compatibility and they work fine.

I've got an Ixus 860, but what software is there? I just whip out my SDHC card and stuff it into my card reader and get Windows Explorer to do it's stuff - editing photos in Paint Shop as necessary...

I have a 2 year old Canon G9. I installed all software on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

It has been working great! I can confirm ZoomBrowser works. I process RAW images on the software too.

If one of your problems is that you can't install the Canon WIA driver in Win 7 to download pics from your camera, there is a work-around. In your camera's settings menu there should be an item labeled "Communication". Change the setting from "Normal" to "PTP" and Windows 7 will detect the camera and allow you to transfer files between the camera and your pc without using any Canon software or drivers.

This is what I had to do to get my old G3 to work with Win 7.
