    Hi there
    What manufacturers SHOULD do and what they ACTUALLY DO do is quite different unfortunately.

    I like Canon cameras - especially the Professional grade DSLR's but have often thought their whole I.T dept should be replaced when it comes to writing decent application software -- most of the programs supplied with their cameras are quite frankly DREADFUL although the latest version of DPP is quite good.

    I use Photoshop CS4 (upgrading to CS5 soon) for processing RAW files and save these on to dedicated USB disks.

    I Link the pics to a home grown MySQL database -- the reason for this is I can add decent descriptive data to the pics, keep the EXIF information (For non shooters this is "Metadata" embedded in a RAW file which gives you details of date, time, Lens used, exposure, camera used andf loads of decent goodies) and have the MySQL DB spanning several disks.

    The problem with things like ZOOMBROWSER is that the data is proprietary, hard to mend if it gets broken and CAN'T SPAN DISKS.

    It's OK if you only want to store fairly low rez jpgs but decent RAW pics and quality A3 (or larger) print versions with loads of layers takes OODLES of storage space.


    One of the things I do with the camera is remote tethered shooting (You use the computer to compose and view the frame and shoot -- often done with Professional grade cameras in a studio etc).

    Most of the software for this STILL only works with XP -- but after the shoot I just copy the files to W7 and use CS4 64 bit photoshop to process the files.

    I still find having an XP Virtual machine is the best solution to most of these driver problems.

    Most consumer grade cameras should be seen as external USB devices but if not a card reader is cheap enough these days to just copy your data to the computer.

    Cheers

    I have a Canon 7D and a Canon PowerShot S100 and both of them are not recognized by "Windows 7 Ultimate N x64". There is no configuration to change the PTP mode in both 7D and S100. I just can't get it to work! :-(

    Can someone help me out please?
