Version: Canon Remote Capture 220.127.116.11
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I hate people who complain about free software, but considering it came as a package with my G3 camera (and was a selling point) I feel I have right to complain.
I bought a G3 to use with RemoteCapture, only to find that RemoteCapture will only auto-focus on the center of the image --
THERE IS NO WAY TO FOCUS MANUALLY OR AUTO-FOCUS OFF-CENTER USING THIS SOFTWARE.
I would have given the software 5 stars, but considering it won't focus (and all attempts to correspond with their tech-support have led to generic "sorry for your confusion" replies), I give it 1 star.
The lack of control for such a basic function of the camera is a complete oversight on Canon's part, and a real bummer.
