Canon software to upload to camera

Andy Hansen , Jul 24, 2006; 11:27 p.m.

I recently purchased the Canon EOS Rebel XT camera, just to get me started with a digital SLR, and the software the comes with the camera apparently has an option to "upload images to the camera", but it is grayed out, as is the "Set DPOF".

I've heard that one should have a card reader instead of using it in the camera, but why offer this program if it doesn't work? I've installed, uninstalled the software, just to make sure I picked all the options and still nothing.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure , I think that feature only works for the 5d, I can't find my manual for my 350d. So just read your manual. But again, I'm not sure:)

"I've installed, uninstalled the software, just to make sure I picked all the options and still nothing."

Why do you want to upload images from your computer into your camera? Normally we want to go the other direction.

The Zoombrowser EX software is for all Canon EOS DSLRs, not just the Digital Rebel. The feature you mentioned, which allows the user to upload customized white balance files to the camera, is only available for the 5D and 1D series.

Thanks for the information.

The only reason I have to upload them to the camera/card is so I can take them to local photo shop to print them out. I can upload them online to their website and print from there, but easier to have on the compact flash card.

Would having a stand-alone card reader work?

"Would having a stand-alone card reader work?"

Yes.
