How to shoot from your PC
Canon D-SLRs come with a program called EOS Utility, which you can load onto your PC for remote or ‘tethered’ shooting, via a USB cable. Here’s how to do it…
First of all, install EOS Utility onto your PC. Next, connect your SLR to your computer via a USB cable and then switch the camera on. Now launch EOS Utility and, in the program’s main menu, click the link entitled Camera Settings/Remote Shooting.
You’ll find that all the main camera information is now displayed in the control window (above right). Click one of the buttons in the bottom row for a quick preview, to take a test shot or, on cameras such as the 450D and above, to launch Live View mode.
Click the virtual shutter release button at the top right of the window to take a picture. The images you take will be recorded and automatically downloaded into the folder of your choice on your hard drive for subsequent review and editing.
