    I was reading in a book that there is software to remotely use a canon camera using a computer (mouse click as shutter, etc). I don't have this on the CDs that came with my XTi...

    I also couldn't find anything on a google search, except one on cnet for Macs only. Anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks,
    D'mitri

    That's weird that it didn't come with any... my XT did.... I haven't actually used it other than the timed shots.

    Turns out it did. I had no idea the EOS utility was the remote thing. Nowhere in the docs that came with the camera did it say that. I didn't install (or even open!) any of the disks that came with the camera, since I didn't need any of it.

    Now I know better :)

    ;) Well I gotta say I only installed it 'cause I was looking for timed release software... the second CD that came with mine was manuals for the software... I just read everything that crosses my path so I knew about it. Like I said, I haven't tried to use it yet though. :)

    Did you read the docs that come on the disk that explains what each program does????
