Yes you can shoot tethered to a computer using Canon EOS Utility.

Hi Mike, 

 

thank you for your quick reply. 

 

How do you exactly do it? with the canon 6D mark II, when I connect the cable and start the EOS Utility doesnt work. 

 

thank you again, 

Best regards

What computer and operation system are you using?

 

Do you have EOS Utility installed?

 

Does EOS Utility start automatically when you connect?

 

If not, you can manually start it. 

 

Once you see this screen, just click on remote Shooting.

Be sure WiFi is turned off. On most (all?) WiFi- equipped cameras, WiFi will prevent a cable connection.

thank you for your time, 

Best regards,
