Release and Preview Buttons
|Top Previous Next|
Click on the Release button (or press F8) to take a picture. The picture is automatically downloaded to the PC, displayed in the main window and saved to disk. Images can be stored on the PC's hard disk, on the camera's memory card or both. When DSLR Remote Pro for Windows is run it always defaults to saving images to the PC only. Please select the appropriate option from the "Camera" menu if you wish to use a different setting.
Note: No picture is taken if the camera is set to auto-focus and is unable to focus.
Click on the Preview button (or press F9) to take a picture in preview mode. The picture is taken as a small JPEG with normal quality so that it is downloaded to the PC quickly. The picture is not stored on the PC's disk or the camera's CF card.
Shutter Release Button
The shutter release button displayed below the histogram simulates pressing the shutter release on the camera and is only available with the Canon EOS 50D, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS 5D Mark II and later cameras.
Remote Manual AF Mode
Recent cameras with live view have the option to take pictures without activating the camera's auto focus. To use this option set the AF mode to "Remote Manual" in the "AF Mode:" dropdown list in the main window.
