 Post subject: Canon EOS software
PostPosted: Fri Jul 17, 2009 5:11 pm 
Assuming it's legal..... (Hard to tell if Canon would consider it piracy)

Does anyone know where I can download a copy of the EOS utilities without using torrents? (torrents are blocked by our router at work)

Here's my situation- I brought my camera in to work, but unfortunately I only have the manual and "Step Up Photography" CD's in my bag. Canon's web site only has updates to existing software (Won't install unless a previous version is installed).

My nice DSLR is a paperweight unless I use my home computer and/or manage to find the original CD since I shot a number of photos in RAW only.

While I'm on this topic, does anyone else think it's stupid for them to do this? Why the *&^% can't I download the full version from them? Couldn't they have done some check on the device you are connecting so it only works with Canon equipment? Will this software even work with non-Canon gear?

You could try the recipe on this Northlight Images page. The Canon downloads are the complete programs - it's only the installer wrapper which checks for a previous installation.

Bob.

P.S. Yes, it does sound stupid so my guess (only a guess) is that there's a lawyer to blame somewhere. Maybe Canon licensed some of the component software and the software license prevents them from freely distributing the whole suite.
