Canon 200D

Question

Hi
I have a Canon 200D and a trial version of backyard EOS. I know the camera is not on the supported list but i thought I'd try it anyway. It connects and recognises the camera, live view doesn't work and BULB doesn't work. I can set it for 30 second exposures and any other exposure but not BULB. Any plans for supporting the 200D.

Noticed this on Canon website: 

7 August 2017:
EDSDK 3.6.1 is now available to download by members of the developer programme.
EOS 6D Mark II / EOS 200D are supported.

Try it.  It won't work initially but you will get weird numbers like these.  Sent them to me and I should be able to make it work.

I confirmed that BYE 3.1.16 includes the 3.6.1 version of the Canon SDK which supports the 200D. I downloaded the latest SDK as of this date (12/6/2017) and compared the SDK against the DLL that is distributed with BYE. They are the same.

If you are the owner of a 200D follow Guylain's instructions above to provide him the numbers that allow him to support the 200D in BYE. The camera is also called the SL2 and Kiss X9. Typically he provides a beta version of BYE for a owners of the newly supported cameras to test with before releasing the final version. This has already been done for the 6D Mk II and it is now listed in the supported cameras list.

Well there you go... you're using the old Canon215 drivers... that will never work :)

Your 200D is a newer model, you need to use the latest Canon option when connecting your camera (not Canon2010 and not Canon215).

I'm not seeing the new driver when installing the pre-release setup-BackyardEOS-v3117-RC1?
Can it be because my previous installation (setup-BackyardEOS-v3116.exe) is a trial license?

No, it's because you told it at one point to remember your selection... which was Canon215.

Goto Settings -> Advance Settings and enable "Ask Camera Drivers".

Regards,
