Canon DSLR - getting started

Canon DSLRs are a great way to connect to Eclipse.

(Note, they do not work with Eclipse SD)

 

New Canon DSLR cameras have "live view". Live view is a direct live video image from the camera, streamed over USB2. Eclipse interfaces with this live view and controls the camera.  Watch the video above to see how to connect a camera.  There are tutorials below on how to shoot and export RAW images.
