EOS Utility 3 and MacBook Pro Fan Noise

darrencoleman

I use my M50 to record content through EOS Utility 3 (Version 3.13.30 (3.13.30.6) on my Mac (Big Sur 11.4 (20F71)) but the minute I start to do this the fan goes crazy consuming about 90% of the processor (as identified through Activity Monitor).

 

This renders most recordings useless due to the fan noise.

 

Is there anything I can do to reduce the fan noise? This seems like an issue with Canon software as no other software causes this issue

Okay. Long looking cable, though

Really - and would this affect the computer so require the fan to go crazy?

As a minimum you could plug your camera into one of their computers and see what happens. Right now you have one equation and two unknowns.
