Question about Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon utilty program freezes then wont close when remote shooting

Using a Canon EOS 5D - when I connect the computer to the camera (tether it via USB) to trigger the shutter remotely, the program gets the camera to take one or two frames then freezes. The program wont shut down even with task manager, computer then also wont shut down so I have to remove the battery to force a shut-down (which Vista doesn't like).

I'd like to put Canon EOS 7D video to iPad?


Like the 5D Mark II the 7D shoots H.264 codec. This must be compressed to a smaller size for iPad syncing or converted to a friendly codec for iMovie.

For iPad,

1. Transfer .MOV files to your Mac via USB.

2. Use Canon MOV Compressor to slow the 60fps down to 24 using frame controls.

3. Sync converted movies to iPad via iTunes

For iMovie,

Just convert Canon 7D to AIC for iMovie editing. iMovie supported best video format is AIC Codec MOV format, you can edit video with this format in iMovie smoothly without rendering,

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

The camera has no built in memory, like all DSLR's. If you shot pictures without a card, the pictures were not saved.
