"Only the "update", and loaded with malware"

February 22, 2013  |  By IHKumicho

 |  Version: EOS Utility 2.8.1

Pros

Avoid at all costs. If you just need the update, get it from Canon. If you need the full version, look elsewhere.

THIS WON'T WORK WITHOUT AN EARLIER VERSION

Cons

Doesn't work

Summary

I expected better from CNET, instead I get a worthless file that's available off of the Canon website WITHOUT the ton of malware that CNET's trying to shove down my throat.

"Works well for tethering, but not with RF Remote."

December 23, 2011  |  By 1inthelight

 |  Version: EOS Utility 2.8.1

Pros

Easy to install (yes, with previous version installed). Worked flawlessly with my Canon 40D using live view. Easy to setup the utility to handle files.

Cons

Will not work with RF Remote Shutter release, apparently the EOS utility overrides the RF.

Summary

This is what I use for shooting tethered, it works great. BUT, when I tried to use it with the RF Remote, it would not work. I ended up having to use the video cable to a TV using live view to accomplish that. I would like to have been able to choose to use the EOS shutter release button or antoher shutter release method, but apparently that is not an option.

"really useful"

December 19, 2011  |  By kayfenton

 |  Version: EOS Utility 2.8.1

Pros

It works! I had struggled with tethering my canon camera to my laptop. Despite numerous attempts to download working progs from canon site and losing hope - this came up trumps. Not only that, but it was free.

Cons

I had to rid my laptop of a few similar canon downloads and reinstall others. More space on a filling hard drive!

Summary

Thanks, really useful.

Summary

This is an upgrade only.
