My EOS 70D is not recognized by EOS Utility 3.
I can connect my camera to my computer and access it through EOS Utility 2 as expected, but when trying to "force" start EOS Utility 3 (double click on "EOS Utility 3.exe" in the EU3 folder) I just get a message saying "Camera is not recognized"
I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the EOS Utility program with no effect.
Does anyone have any idea on how to get this solved.
Solved! Go to Solution.
So, I am have the latest firmware 1.1.3 on my Canon 70D. I installed EOS Utility bundle V3.15.0 on my macOS Catalina 10.15.6 and yet I get the message "Camera is not recognized", just like pnordestgaard.
I have tried multiple USB cables as well.
Now you say the 70D Camera is not supported yet the downloads page has it listed https://Canon.us/ctb9a
Although it notes that it is a "Recently Added Camera", Great! So why is it not recognized? Does "Recently added..." mean "Not compatible yet"? Could you please elaborate as to why the 70D is not recognized, especially when the Canon site is claiming the software is "Now compatible with over 40 Canon cameras", one of which the 70D?
If possible, do you know if Canon is aware of this issue and if there is an updated version of the software coming that addresses this...or a patch? Something?
Thank you for any further information that you can provide. If I can get this to work it will be a godsend.
Despite what the support page states, the manual doesn't list the 70D as compatible and your experience bears that out..
You need to use EOSU2. The installer should have installed it along with EOSU3.
Go into you Applications folder, find Canon Utilities and open that folder. You should see a folder for EOS Utility. Open that folder and you will see EU3 and EU2 folders., Open EU2 and run EOS Utility 2.
The EOS Utility launcher should start the appropriate version, depending on the camera it sees, but that doesn't always work.
