Rebel XT software

tim swaback , Feb 22, 2007; 08:03 p.m.

I got a canon rebel XT off of ebay but it didn't come with the bundled software. I tried searching the forum and also the canon site but cant seem to find the software i need. Ive found the drivers section, but all that is there is updates. I installed the windows XP driver and EOS capture for XP but my computer doesn't recognize the camera and when i double click on the EOS capture software absolutely nothing happens, no program loads. HELP!

Did you download the latest version of Capture from Canon (The upgrade to Capture). Also, you need Zoom Browser EX to view the photos while shooting tethered. What software are you looking for? The bundle comes with Zoom EX, DPP, ArcSoft 5.5, and Capture.

Im looking for all of the software. I didnt get it on CD when i got the camera, so im now looking for it.

Here is a link to download it. Use at your own risk...I have never downloaded from this site.

Surely the better answer is to get yourself a card reader which works much faster that cable connection to camera and Use Windows Explorer to do the transfer from card to computer.

I agree with JC. In fact, all of my Canon software (from three d-SLRs) is still sealed in the original packaging, and I'll keep it that way until I sell the camera. You simply don't need it.

Windows explorer file transfer is quick and dirty but lacks the rather helpful automatic date-based folder creation of the Zoombrowser transfer method.

But, if you want to shoot tethered to the computer, you need EOS Capture, and ZoomBrowser EX.

Not to beat this to death or anything but IMO Zoombrowser is probably the worst photo browsing software ever. All you need is a card reader and windows explorer. If you want batch renaming, just use Bridge which comes with Photoshop CS2, which is a MUCH better way to browse raw images. Adobe Lightroom just came out and is also great for organizing files and is cheaper than Photoshop. Definately worth spending a little money to avoid using Canon's extremely slow image transfering, browsing and raw converting software.
