What is the software that will take images from win7 and Maxim?

Basically you just have to install the appropriate camera drivers which

depend upon what brand and model of camera you use. Drivers would generally

be included with whatever camera you bought or would be on the manufacturers

website.

Marlin,



The software IS Maxim. That's what Maxim does -- it allows you to take

and save images with a long list of cameras -- and then process them.



But I'm thinking this really isn't the question you're asking.

The more delicate question is, who has actually made rebel work with Win7? .I have made all the attempts suggested long ago but Canon long ago announced they will not do a driver for Rebel in Win7. .Who has actually made a workaround for this exact combination?

While it would be nice to be able to use 7 with a 300D, since Maxim still

runs on XP AFAIK, just cobble up an XP laptop from somewhere and you're good

to go. I did this to keep my ancient EOS10D in the game and it really isn't

very hard to do at all.

If you're talking about the original Rebel 300D, then you're out of luck.

Only

Canon can solve that problem, and they have announced that they have no

intention of doing so.

I found this somewhere:



"I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT and did manage to get it to work on Windows 7 64bit:



Disconnect the camera from the computer.

Turn the camera on.

Press the MENU key on the camera.

Use the arrow keys to select the TOP BAR (TABS).

Select the RIGHT MOST TAB (Picture of tools #2).

Scroll down to the option CONNECTION

change it to PRINT/PTP.

Press menu.

Connect camera to the computer.

It should now work.



Please note you may need the Windows Live installed for the ability to download (not sure, but I had it installed).

Link thing: home.live.com/



Good luck!"

It's no problem connecting a 300D to a Win7 system for the purpose of

transferring files- as long as you have it configured appropriately, it

looks like any other USB mass storage device.



What you can't do is control the camera via USB, because that requires

Canon drivers which don't exist for newer platforms. That's why Maxim is

unable to support that camera on all systems. And actually, the 300D was

always a bit challenged in terms of USB control, requiring some hardware

workarounds for long exposures.

There MAY be some validity to this post based on the sequence of connection--I'll give it a try when I get a minute--but I can tell you that setting up with the PRINT/PTP selection did allow connection but did not allow exposure. I eventually did what everyone does and re-installed everything on my XP laptop and then after a little fiddling around to acquire the driver I was able to connect and expose. I have asked if anyone has gotten an XT to work in Windows 7 and unless this gent has a legit work around I haven't heard that anyone actually has for the driver issue everyone mentions. I am looking into running a virtual copy of XP under Windows 7. You have to check to see if your processor is VT capable and if it is this might be a possibility. You right click "My Computer" select properties and copy the numbers for your processor. Then put these numbers/letters in a Google search with the letter VT in front of them. That takes you to, as I recall, Virtual Technologies website and they will list all the specs for your processor along with whether or not it is capable of running a virtual window. Mine was, but I have not gotten around to giving it a try. I don't know that I will. There is the problem of getting a copy of XP, installing it etc. etc. By the time that all gets done the idea of finding a $100 XP laptop somewhere and installing MaxIm DL and going from there starts to sound pretty good. I know for a fact that works. None the less, if anyone has ever attempted the virtual XP thing I would love to hear from you.
