FAQ: How do I use the bundled software to download still images or movies from the camera to a computer (EOS Utility Ver.2.10)

Helpful Information:

Solution:


This section describes how to download images from your camera to the computer using EOS Utility.
Same procedures can be used to download movies as well as still images. However, downloading movies requires a much longer time due to their large data size.
Windows Vista is used as an example, but the procedures are mostly the same if you use Windows 7, Windows XP, or Mac OS X.


ATTENTION
  • Install all software from the Solution Disk supplied with the camera before performing the following procedures.
  • When downloading images to the computer, please log on to the computer as an administrator.
  • EOS Utility is exclusively for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Mac OS X.
