    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.

    Go ahead and install it. It worked fine for me. You can check canon usa for updates!

    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.
