Is it possible to only download JPG's?



BYE 3.2.2, Canon M50 Mark II

I'm only asking this because the Canon EOS Utility has this option.

I have BYE configured to tell the camera to shoot in RAW & JPG. In the capture plan, it's set to PC+Camera. That works as expected in that it saves both formats to the cameras SDCard and downloads both formats to the PC.

That also causes a delay between exposures as BYE waits for the download to complete before taking the next shot. That time would be decreased if there was an option to only download the JPG to the PC and not the RAW file.

Like I mentioned, the Canon EOS Utility has this ability, so I was wondering if it exists in BYE?

I like being able to see each shot on the PC as BYE runs through the capture plan. It's a minor thing I know, but I've become accustomed to being able to keep an eye on things during my sessions, and since my only other hardware right now is the Sky Adventurer, there's no other way for me to accomplish that.

BYE displays the RAW files just fine. RAW is all I have ever shot.  You can even apply a screen stretch to make the dim details easier to see.

The only thing that I ever used JPGs for is plate solving.

Yes you're correct it does display them just fine, but I don't need them on the PC. It's the size of the RAW file being a considerable amount larger than the JPG that's causing the delay between exposures. So the RAW for example, is ~25MB and the JPG is ~7MB. That delay in downloading would be shortened if it was only the JPG being pulled from the camera.

If you save only RAW images only to the PC then you will save the download time of the JPG and the time to save the RAW and JPG to the SD card. That is the best that you can do unless you can convince the developers to implement what you are asking for. The place to do that is the suggestion box forum, but it could take several months.
