Windows 7: Professional Tethered Photo software W7

Professional Tethered Photo software W7

Hi all
To any Pro (or serious amateur) photogs out there.

I'm currently still using XP (as a VM) on one computer for "Tethered shooting" (Camera is a Canon 1DS M3).

Fortunately it still works as a Virtual XP machine

I haven't been able to get any tethered software to work on W7 yet -- anybody else suceeded yet.

Tried the Canon EOS utility -- Not supported for this OS

Tried this in "compatability mode" -- also no go.

DSLR Remote Pro - Remote Control/Tethered Operation of Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, EOS-1D Mark III, EOS-1Ds Mark II, EOS-1D Mark II, 5D, 30D, 400D, DIGITAL REBEL XTi, 20D, 30D, 40D, EOS-1D, EOS-1DS, 10D, 350D, DIGITAL REBEL XT, Kiss Digital N, 300D, DIGI

I need tethered shooting when working in a Studio.

Anyone else had any luck -- doesn't have to be this camera model but any CANON that is "Tetherable". Nikon stuff may work but I'm certainly not switching Camera systems.

Hi Jimbo,

Bibble runs on Windows 7 7077 with no issues and includes tethered shooting control for Canon cameras, although have not used it

Bibble Labs: Download or Purchase

They do a trial so you could check it out, if suitable it's just a case of sourcing a copy at the best price, on the net :)

I've tried both Nikon's and Bibble's (mentioned above) camera control functions with my Nikon bodies and both seem to work as claimed (I do not normally shoot tethered - just tried it to see if it worked). Hopefully, the Bibble solution will work for you.

Hi all.

Bibble works fine -- will probably go for it until Canon fixes its stuff (Canon is ALWAYS slow at this however -- I think they've just come off Windows 2000).
