Hi Folks...a bit of help needed here.

I tried the above steps & many permutations of the above steps but cannot get the camera to connect. I cannot get liveview on the utility.

I always get a blank liveview screen or the utility program flashes "cannot connect..."

When I connect the camera I cannot select liveview. The computer is connecting to the camera (the red led flashes) & it prompts for download of files. I shut this off & try the utility... same same ...I cannot select liveview.

For some strange reason I managed to get it to work & record once..but never again.

Any ideas????


Ahhhh ignore all the above. Installing the Canon utilities from the Canon disc fixed it all. Works like a brought one now! I leave this post as others may face the same problems.

I get 22fps on main computer & 20 fps on the lappy.

Tomorrow I'm going to get a 3.5mm mono audio jack so I can plug the camera video output straight into a portable video player. This is so I can try liveview focus on a larger screen without the lappy. Just playing around.
