how to keep liveview on in my pc using EOS Utilty 2

Liveview shot.tif

I just installed EOS Utility 2 on my macbook air and am pairing it with my T3i camera, when I go into Liveview through my pc, it keeps shutting off after 15 seconds or so.

Is there any way to keep this on?

I keep having to click 'Depth of Field' preview on and off, and actually it shows live when it's clicked off (blue), but again, it shuts off too quickly.

 

Thanks!!

Hi traveler582!

 

Thanks for posting.

 

After about 30 seconds of non-operation, the camera will turn itself off to conserve battery power.  You can then wake it up by pressing a button, typically the shutter button halfway pressed works the best.  I recommend that you change the Auto Power Off setting so this does not happen so often, or at all.

 

  1. Press MENU.
  2. Select the [Tools #1] tab.
  3. Select [Auto Power Off].
  4. Select [Off] or another desired setting.

How about I say, your response, in addition to Canon's rsponse, which was for me to install:

 

"EOS Digital Solution Disk Software 29.0A".

 

made it possible to now work beautifully!!

 

Thanks
