Question

I have been using BYE for years on t3i/t5i, a recent problem with the t5i; it disconnects after going to live preview.  Then, after reconnecting, it will usually take only a shot or two before disconnecting again.  No such issues with the t3i so I assume this is a camera problem but I'd like to know if there are similar experiences.  Is there any way to default preview to something besides max ISO?

The more immediate question:  I just bought an 80D and found an upgrade to BYE on both of my computers was in order.  All went very smoothly...except for one thing:  BYE (and confirmed at the camera) is set for RAW+JPG.  However, the jpg is not saved, only the RAW file.  ANy suggestions?  Thanks much.

So, I assume that you mean LiveView when you say "live preview". You can uncheck the Maximum Sensitivity setting to keep BYE from changing to the max ISO.

I have a T5i and have no problems using it with BYE. Disconnects are usually cabling or connection issues.

I can't help with the JPG image not being saved as I never shoot JPG with BYE.

Correct, live view.  Thanks for the max sensitivity tip! I probably would know that had I taken advantage of available resources... This is a full-spectrum mod camera, so I've been a little suspicious of that as a possible root cause, although it worked well up to a point, confirmed that it's not cabling.  I do a lot of lunar as well and that's where I want jpg, as the RAW image view on my computer leaves something to be desired, and I like to roll through the frames in progress to double-check quality and get a general idea of whether I need to reshoot a sequence.

To clarify, I dump the jpg's later.  They are useful to me only during the process of shooting and there I find them very useful.

If this usage of the JPG is because you don't have anything on your Laptop which can display the CR2 Files that you've shot, consider IrfanView (it's one of the quickest Image Viewers that I know).  And while I don't know for the recent DSLR Releases such as the 80D, but there was a generic Codec for display of Canon CR2 and Nikon NEF files that allowed Windows File Manager to display such Images itself.
