Question

Hello-

I have seen another discussion here about the EOS-R compatibility, but I never saw a resolution.  With the EOS -Ra just out, I am wondering if BYE is indeed compatible with the EOS-R?

Thank you!

Tom M

Did you read this thread which is just below your post on the Backyard EOS main menu?

 

It asked the same question. The authors answered that it is supported in the latest BYE pre-release version.

The EOS-Ra (mentioned in the title of your post) will not be supported until Canon releases a version of the EOS SDK that includes support for that model. SDK releases are totally at Canon's discretion and may not occur for several months after a new camera model is available. For more information you should read the following post that is pinned near the top of the forum.

Typically, models are not added to the Support Grid until they are in a Release version of BYE.

Thank you for the reply!  I obviously missed that post (and hence the Paul Lorenz question) as the auto reply from the "contact us" link sent me to the forum home page to start a new question.

In any event, understood.

Since I got the EOS-R to work it should be relatively easy/quick to release a version with the EOS-Ra support once Canon releases the SDK.

In the past it took Canon anywhere from 4 to 8 months to release the SDK once a new camera was released.  However, I found that in recent years that gap has shrunk to anywhere from 0 to 3 months on average.

As the sole reported differences between the EOS-R and EOS-Ra are a changed IR-Filter (exposing Sensor to 4x Ha) and a 30x LiveView Zoom (might be an issue for Frame&Focus), it might be that the EOS-Ra is already supported in the most recent SDK (or might self-identify as an EOS-R).

It would be worth trying to connect an EOS-Ra using BYE and check the Log (once any EOS-Ra are released to the Pubilc - Dec-Jan timeframe?).

I might work, but Canon has a habit of identifying every model with a specific SDK model number and this is what I use to identify the models.  If Canon uses the same SDK internal number for both the R and Ra model then it will work, otherwise I'll have to register the new model number, recompile, and upload :)

Thank you s3igell and Guylain for your kind responses!  Guylain, your last post was my thought as well, but I just wanted to hear it from you!

R does not necessarily imply Ra. I will stick with my tried and true 6D for now...

And, thank you for all of your work in giving us BYE;  it has become just an extension of my right arm over the last four years in my work!

Kind regards,

Tom M
