Which software for tethering EOS1200D

ClaireK

I have an EOS1200D and am wondering which software to download to my laptop so that I can tether my camera. I have found the software download options but my camera is not listed.  My laptop is Windows 8 and I'd rather not have to update it if I don't have to.

Can anyone advise please?  Thank you. Claire

Download the digital image of the camera CD (if you don't have the original) and install EOS Utility.

EOS 1200D - Support - Download drivers, software and manuals - Canon Europe (canon-europe.com)

Then install the update to EOSU from the same website.

If you want the best get Lightroom. It isn’t free but the best usually isn’t. If you want free do as JH suggests.

Lightroom is great product. I have used it since the original initial public beta was released. But, it is a photo editing product with tethering capability. I would not recommend someone get involved in the monthly Adobe subscription process just for tethering. EOS Utility provides more capability that LrC. A very interesting product, for less than $50, is Control My Canon. 

I think this is OK to post since it doesn’t link to the site. It is from a tethertools.com software comparison.
