Customer Comments and Press Reviews for Breeze Systems'
Family of Digital Workflow Productivity Software Programs.
"Chris Breeze's BreezeBrowser is an excellent choice in
"alternative" software to use with your Canon EOS Digital
Rebel image files. It can be used with any JPEG image or Canon
RAW (CRW) file from any Canon digital camera. BreezeBrowser is
reasonably priced and the support is direct from the author. Chris'
software has been the choice of many Canon dSLR users for quite
a while now, the RAW conversion options are excellent."
"BreezeBrowser 2.9 is a low-cost image browsing application with hidden depths. Simplicity and flexibility are its strengths. It's easy to use and to navigate around, yet at the same time offers a range of viewing and display options, the ability to output contact sheets and web albums, and a highly sophisticated RAW conversion process for Canon digital camera images."
Digital Photographer - UK digital photography magazine for enthusiasts and pros
"A feature-rich program for transferring photos from a Canon
digital camera or any card reader to a Windows computer...the
program offers a wealth of renaming and sorting options, lossless
rotation of vertical JPEGs from cameras like the EOS 10D that record ororientation information in the picture file, automatic embedding of ICC profiles in JPEGs (once you've associated a camera model with the profile to be embedded) and more."
"When Chris Breeze, creator of the amazing BreezeBrowser program (http://www.birdsasart.com/breezebrowser.htm) that I use every day of the year, told me to try Downloader Pro, I should have listened. But I didn't, and as a result I wasted hundreds of hours downloading my digital images"
From Birds As Art Bulletin 142
Arthur Morris, Nature photographer, "Birds as Art"
"Downloader Pro - - I can't live without it, and neither should you!"
Short review of Downloader Pro
Michael Furtman, Freelance writer and photographer
"Downloader Pro is still excellent value and is a must-have for PC users of a digital camera."
Roger Cavanagh (User review)
Remote Pro for Windows - Download and Try Risk
"While some manufacturers of 35mm DSLRs do provide rudimentary
remote capture software, there's nothing on the market at the
moment like DSLR Remote Pro from Breeze Systems. Chris Breeze
has produced a masterful bit of programming that every studio
and technical photographer who owns a Canon DSLR will want to
The first thing to do is to download an evaluation copy of the
program. It is available on a 15 day free trial. When you want
to purchase it (and you likely will) the price is U.S. $129.
Even if you're not a studio photographer I urge you to download
DSLR Remote Pro. Used properly it's like having a teacher setting
beside you. And if you are a studio or technical photographer,
there no question that this program will solve a lot of problems
for you. What more can one ask?"
Reichmann at Luminous Lanscape
"DSLR Remote Pro is a great program and for certain applications, the software is almost indispensable."
Pixelmania www.pixelmania.nl (review in Dutch)
"If you need to shoot tethered more than once, you need to take a serious look at DSLR Remote Pro, from enthusiasts to seasoned pros, DSLR Remote Pro is an excellent tool."
Kerry Garrison, L7Foto.com
"This is an excellent program and I'm sure that once you
have tried it on your computer you will be happy to send the author
the registration fee."
BreezeBrowser Pro - Download and Try Risk Free
"I can't say enough good about Downloader Pro and BreezeBrowser Pro. Great products which I use all the time and recommend highly."
John Shaw, Professional nature photographer
"For the past six years or so, Breezebrowser (and then BreezeBrowser Pro) has
been my daily companion. Virtually every camera and lens I've
reviewed has had its pictures sorted, edited, organized, etc. with
BreezeBrowser. Every review I write relies on this program for preparation work and I have recommended it to professional
photographer friends for many years. Chris Breeze has also been quick to respond to support for new cameras and new features. For my own
workflow, there are three indispensable programs on my editing
computer: BreezeBrowser Pro, Capture One Pro and Photoshop. I highly
recommend Chris Breeze's very intelligent and useful program. "
"BreezeBrowser Pro and Downloader Pro are awesome tools! While I use Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Bridge for most of my workflow, I find myself heading off to BreezeBrowser Pro every time I need to get something done fast. Your software is so quick at browsing compared to all the other products out there, that it has become the only tool I use on the road on my laptop for downloading from media cards and image viewing."
Gregory Georges, Photographer and author
"I have been using BreezeBrowser Pro and Downloader Pro for almost a year now and I love them! When I began I knew nothing about how to put together a website. But with the help of Frontpage and your wonderful templates, it was actually very easy. Also the RAW converter in BreezeBrowser Pro is terrific! It made switching from shooting film to digital a snap and with so much more control."
Ken Harris, Ken Harris Photography
"I'm loving BreezeBrowser Pro - point it at a directory with 1,200+ images and it handles them with ease."
Frank C. Brants, Photographer
"BreezeBrowser Pro is the best browser I have found, and I have tried a lot of them. It is much faster than Bridge. The interface is clean and it is not bloated with a lot of 'cool' effects. It is a working tool - and I like that. I also use the HTML function for sending submission proofs. Again, just what I need without a lot of 'fluff'."
"Your browser is incredible"
David Alan Wolters, Professional Photographer
"I purchased BreezeBrowser Pro in July and really love the software - I am a wedding photographer and use it to edit an organize all the images from my weddings."
Geoffrey Tischman, Professional Wedding Photographer
"I have to tell you what I think my favorite feature is so far with BreezeBrowser Pro - it's the way you can have a split screen and examine two or four pictures at the same time, as close up as you want to. What a great thing! I take lots of multiple shots and that is just so slick to be able to compare images side by side to see the sharpest etc. GREAT idea!"
Nancy Ryan, Photographer
"As far as I'm concerned this is the best software out there for downloading your images from CompactFlash cards (or other media) quickly and easily. It provides powerful automation and a wide range of "tokens" that can be used to customize the filenames of downloaded images (if you want to)."
"This is software I highly recommend"
Tim Grey, Digital imaging expert
"A big thanks. I am soooooo happy with Downloader Pro. It is the perfect tool to download CF card images to my hard drive. I use the camera mapping to channel images from several different photographers to different folders and it works great."
Nati Harnik, News photographer
"I can only say WOW again - I am really impressed and can see right off the bat that this will definitely make my life even easier.
You can bet I will keep on sending everyone I know to you for these excellent tools.
Thank you so much for making such great products and for continuing to make them better and better. You are awesome!"
"Just a quick note to say what a brilliant and useful program Downloader Pro is. I just wish that I had discovered it earlier. With my Canon 10D counter approaching 9999, I now have an effective mechanism for continuing the numbering sequence beyond 10000."
Tim Mimpriss UK
"I love your new Downloader Pro and use it multiple times a week with a CompactFlash card in a "reader" slipped into my PC Card slot. It works great and is so efficient."
"I wouldn't leave home without Downloader Pro"
"Downloader Pro and BreezeBrowser Pro are an integral part of my workflow. I bought Downloader Pro as part of a package because it was not that expensive, now I could not imagine what it would be like without it. Being able to download all my images into one folder and date code them at the same time is an incredible time saver."
Tony Bruguiere, PRCA Photographer
"Great, thanks! DLPro rocks!!!"
"Great, Chris. We use breezebrowser and downloader pro daily and appreciate your products very much."

"I use DSLR Remote Pro with my Canon EOS 5D. My favorite feature is the time-lapse, and I've been capturing some stunning visuals in Vancouver, BC. Coming from a long background in software, I appreciate your robust - feature rich application. It is an absolute pleasure to use."
Jim Hejl, Director, Rendering Technology, Electronic Arts
Example time-lapse sequence: "Solstice", 26 June 2007, Vancouver, BC (6Mb file)
"I used DSLR Remote the other day on a major job with a Canon 1Ds and it was fab."
"Whenever people see me using my Canon digital camera and viewing images on my Sony laptop, they never ask about the camera or laptop but always about the DSLR Remote software that holds it all together. I say it's the best - and cheapest - part!"
"Your remote access software is what the manufacturers should have thought about & provided from the start. It broadens the scope of the camera tremendously. For example our usage is in the scientific field and so will be using it in an indoor situation. The ability to be able to control & dump images directly to a PC is just what we need."
Dane Gerneke NZ
"I've been using DSLR Remote Pro onstage for dance performances and I like it very much."
"Besides Remote Pro's ability to display the image full-screen instantly, I love the option to convert to b&w on the fly. In what I'm doing now it emphasizes the separateness of the image and contrasts with the actual dancer."
"I'm using Remote Pro a lot. The dancers are delighted with it; they love the feedback from seeing themselves and they like to interact with their own images."
Steve Clark, Steve Clarke Fine Art Photography

"I love your DSLR Remote Pro which I use with my 1Ds... By the way I own all your products and enjoy using them."
"We bought PSRemote and we're very happy with it! Fantastic job guys!"
Raphael de Borman, www.eventattitude.com (photo animations for events, Belgium)
"First of all, I'd like to say that PSRemote is really a FANTASTIC piece of software. The onion skinning feature and overall picture management features blow Canon's Remote Capture out of the water!"
"I just wanted to send you a short message to thank you for developing PSRemote. Our research lab uses digital cameras to monitor the progress of our experiments by taking an image every 20 minutes over several days. ..... We recently decided to image two sides of our experimental system, but Canon's Remote Capture software wouldn't allow us to run two cameras from the same computer. Someone on a Digital Photography Review (DPReview.com) forum suggested we try your product. We downloaded a copy of your software and were successful at operating our A70 with Breeze Systems' PSRemote while simultaneously operating our S45 with Canon's Remote Capture from the same computer. This means we don't need to tie up a second computer to monitor the experiment which saves us some much needed benchtop space."
Joseph A. Pedit, Ph.D.
NKRemote is a cool little program. I haven't read the docs or help file....
I just opened it and let it rip. I had plugged in the camera and had it
turned on, when I opened NKRemote. It immediately recognized the D700 and
lens. All of the functions were easy to use and see. Captures to the hard
disk were extremely fast, which rather surprised me....
Just a quick note to thank you for all your help. I have just returned from my trip to Antarctica and the remote access software for the D90 worked flawlessly ....... I particularly loved the flash compensation adjust, which really helped to get the lighting correct using my new speedlights.
Eric Lazo-Wasem, Peabody Museum of Natural History, Yale University
Once again I must thank you for your excellent customer support. I have not run into the issue that you notified me about, but thank you for the update and most of all the communication. Your customer service and support is unequaled in the industry... I have been a consultant in the Pro Audio, Music & Computer industry for over 25 years and you are the best!
As the volunteer photographer at the Dorset County Museum UK I was faced with the prospect of photographing 900 bronze hand axes or parts thereof, about 8cm long! Having just bought a Nikon D90 I came across a reference to NKRemote and decided to try (and buy). It is a great piece of software and has worked faultlessly on all 900! I can't imagine how long it would have taken peering through the viewfinder or how many batteries live view would have needed. Now I have got axes out of my system I am looking forward to trying the focus stacking on some of our exhibits and auto bracketing for the strange lighting that we often have in museums.
Thank you for an excellent product,
Hello to Chris and team from a snowy, blowy Canada.
I have been using my paid for version of your Nikon product the past two Sundays, taking photos of members of our church for a directory. Having the ability to immediately show the picture on my laptop monitor is fantastic. I just can't imagine having people running behind the camera to get a peek at their picture on a 3" screen on my Nikon D300 and possibly tripping over strobe light cables etc. Everything has gone extremely well and I am totally pleased with your product.
Thanks very much for providing a great product, something I've longed for but didn't want to give up on my ability to continue using Nikon products.
"It's simple. I could not exist without BreezeBrowser. When folks watch me edit my digital images using the slide show mode, they are blown away by quickly BreezeBrowser loads the images. In addition, the conversions are great and there are lots of great features (Show Focus Points, the High Quality option, and Show Flashing Highlights) that make my life easier."
Arthur Morris, Nature photographer, "Birds as Art"
"This is absolutely the most cost effective photo download and management software on the market. For Web graphics, the exposure compensation and HTML tools are worth the price of admission alone!"
Alan Wilson, Amateur nature photographer
"I bought the very first version of BreezeBrowser and it was worth every dollar spent. I believe this is still the best raw digital file converter available for the money today. The menus are very straightforward and easy to navigate. For the professional, this usually results in spending less time processing the job just digitally captured"
Nate Engram, Nate Engram Photography
"Just wanted to say a big 'thank you' for creating such useful software. BreezeBrowser is saving me such a lot of time it's incredible. From the proofing feature, which enables me to quickly and easily prepare submissions for image stock libraries (complete with IPTC data), to the HTML generation system which quickly optimises all the images/pages and adds copyright watermark etc. I have also customised your template so that it will pull the IPTC caption to populate the meta description, and pull the IPTC keywords to populate Meta keywords which means I don't need to manually edit each webpage to optimise for search engines. And then there's the excellent RAW file conversion aspect!
Craig Mackintosh, Wild Images Photographer
"I am a professional photographer and I use BreezeBrowser with Canon D60, 10D, and 1Ds.
I just wanted to let you guys know that you did a fantastic job. WOW, what a great program.
Good and consistent results!"
David Waterman, Ph.D. - D2 Digital Photography
"BB is probably the only reason I won't buy a Mac Powerbook - it's not available for OS-X. For me, BB is simply indespensible"
Chris Valentine, Freelance Sports Photographer
"I have to congratulate you on the quality, performance and user-friendly interface of this software. It is a brilliant piece of programming and even my relatively old and overloaded 800MHz Athlon processor generates pages of thumbnails with remarkable speed."
Roger Angold, Technical Director of Pyxis CSB Ltd
"This is just a note to say "thank you" for a great program. Breeze Browser has made my transition to digital capture great. My work flow is great and the time I save selecting photos for presentation is unreal.
I have been using your program for a bit over 1 year (I think) and I would recommend it to anyone involved in digital capture."
Photography by Jerry Head
"I've had this software since the beginning and continue to use it all the time. It's a great piece of work!"
"I just upgraded and can't stand other conversion software! I thoroughly enjoy BB and think it's the best RAW conversion software in the world."
Stuart Nadelson, Photographer for more than 45 years
"I have been a satisfied user of your excellent RAW conversion software (BreezeBrowser) since my first digital SLR, the Canon D30, in November 2001. I have used a D60 and for the last year a 10D."
"I continue to be very impressed with the level of support you offer. BB was, and remains, one of the best software investments I've ever made"
"By the way, I plug your product everywhere I go, and just about every Windows-based professional photographer I meet eventually starts to use it.:)"
Eric Cheng, Photographer and Software Engineer
"I absolutely love breeze browser ......
I personally photographed 30,000 images (weddings and portraits)through 2
10d's last year and all the images went through breeze browser, I make my
fellow wedding photographers purchase it when I consult them on their work
flow. Great job now!!!!!!!!!!! I can't thank you enough."
Jack Hecker Photography
"I just had to let you know:
YOU HAVE CREATED A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF SOFTWARE !!!
I have just been doing some "captioning" (IPTC data entry) and the "EXIF copy' feature and the ability to open multiple instances of BB have been a real life saver!
Your program has a very simple interface, is largely easy to use, has many wonderful features, and works very quickly! A programming masterpiece!"
"... I also wanted to thank you for your excelent product.
I truely don't know what I would do without it and many of the other people I told about it feel the same way.
You are to becommended many times over for your continued efforts. The updates alwaysmake an already great product that much better.
Thanks again, Happy Holidays,"
"Appreciate your help and I love your browser!"
Bruce Berg, M.Photog, Cr.
"Great, Chris. We use breezebrowser and downloader pro daily and appreciate your products very much."
"Thank you for your quick response and the new codes. You folks have one of the best, easiest to use and understand programs available. It has always served me well!!"
Steve Samoyedny, Four Seasons Photo
"Thanks for your money saving reply.I am a registered user for a couple of years and will download.
Delighted with Breezebrowser as an adjunct to my D-30 for that time and am sure that it will give me the same satisfaction with the 1Ds. "
