canon dpp 4 tether problem
« on: October 10, 2014, 04:46:25 PM »

Hi

I am trying out the new DPP 4 and EOS Utility 3 and having Problems

When I use Utlity as a capture program DPP doesn't show me my last capture, I have to manually advance it.

When I use the inbuilt tether function of DPP, I cannot assign a custom name to my files, it only uses the standard file name.

Any solutions?

Thanks!

c'mon… just teasing… no real harm intended

however, does any company have a proprietary program that matches LR, much less C1

unfortunately LR doesn't offer live view tethering and the hotfolder thing is quite slow.... dpp4 looks finally rather acceptable as a tethering solution.

Unfortunately, I've found a number of issues wih DPP 4 and the EOS Utility 3, but yet to resolve a number of them. I did find that tether operation was better when I launched the Utility separately, rather than trying to use the integrated function of DPP. You really don't lose anything operating that way, other than some of the hassles. My particular beef with EOS Utility 3, is that some numb-nuts in software design decided to remove the "test capture" function which existed in EOS Utility 2. As a result, when I shoot still-life (really, one of the few things for which I actually tether), I use Utility 2. I've been working on a large still-life shoots the past couple of weeks. Early on, I tried Capture One, LR5 and the EOS Utility. I abandoned all the above for the reason that they don't allow a test frame. I've ended up using a rather simple but elegant solution: DSLR Remote from Chris Breeze (of Breeze Browser fame). The biggest plus for DPP/EOS Utility is that with my 1Dx, I can use Ethernet. Nothing else allows for that.

My suggestion: If you like DPP/EOS Utility, continue to use the older Utility2. There really is no advantage, in my eyes, to 3, and it still connects easily to DPP.
