With the Canon Eos 5D and E100 mk3 cameras, Canon has provided a wide array of cameras with built-in Canon-specific software that allows the user to control Canon lenses, such as the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED IS USM Lens.
But Canon also offers built-ins for many other cameras, so if you’re interested in controlling Canon lenses on the EOS5D and the E100mk3, it’s worth checking out Canon’s built-out Canon Camera Control Suite.
To set up Canon Camera Controllers for use with Canon EOs cameras, you’ll need to download Canon Camera Software from the Canon Camera site and install it.
Once installed, you can then launch Canon Camera in the menu bar, and click on the “Software” tab.
There you’ll see a list of all of Canon’s Canon Camera Controller (CC) programs available for use on your camera.
From here you can download a copy of Canon Camera and set it up as a Canon CC remote control.
If you want to install Canon Camera on your computer, download the Canon Remote Controller Package, which is compatible with the Canon 5D Mk3 and 5D MKII and the Canon 10D Mark IV, and set up the remote control for Canon cameras using that package.
If you’re familiar with the previous Canon camera setup guides, you may find Canon Camera’s Canon Remote Control Suite easier to navigate than the Canon Software suite.
But if you’ve never used Canon Remote Controllers before, then it’s not an easy transition.
The Canon Remote controls all Canon cameras that are not Canon CC cameras, but the Canon remote control suite doesn’t include the Canon lenses and software that you’ll use to control your Canon lenses.
This section describes how to set up a Canon remote camera control suite on your EOS cameras.
To access the Canon Canon Camera remote control software on your cameras, head to the Canon Cameras menu in the Menu Bar.
There, you should see the Canon camera control menu, which shows the menu items for the Canon cameras and software you’ll be using.
After you’ve clicked on the Canon “Control” icon, the CanonCameraRemote software should appear.
You can then download the package, which allows you to set your Canon camera to use the Canon CC Remote.
