When I used to tether my 600D to EOS Utility, the downloaded images would always preserve their filenames (i.e. the camera's counter). However, when using the latest version of EOS Utility with my new 800D, the counter starts from IMG_0001 on every tethering session, even though I have "do not modify" selected in file name options.
I want the images to follow the camera's counter rather than resetting back to 1 on each tethering session. What am I doing wrong?
Several versions ago EOSU changed to save only to computer vs saving to camera. Since it doesn’t involve camera it doesn’t know the file name on camera.
What happens if you use Canon’s DPP4 Remote Shooting Option? It makes use of the EOS Utility’s GUI to capture photos. I only tried it once when DPP4 was first introduced.
