question about new T7

Question

I've been away from BYEOS for a year or more. My old T3 stopped communicating with the laptop and I could not afford to by a new camera. Now I'm looking at an updated T7 cameras, but now they are WiFi capable. My question is when using the newer cameras are they still using the USB port to the laptop or does BYEOS now use a WiFi connection?   Sorry for having to ask such a  beginner question. Brian

Brian,

BYE uses the Canon SDK which does not completely support using WiFi for camera control. However, some people have been able to connect BYE and the Canon SDK with their camera via WiFi after pairing the two devices using the EOS Utility or some other application. Apparently Canon does not provide information to 3rd party developers about how to accomplish this. You may find useful information about how to wirelessly connect a camera to BYE in the archives of this site.

If you are using the USB connection, WiFi must be disabled by you via the cameras menus.

I will say that a wired USB connection will be faster and more reliable than the wireless connection. The SDK does not tolerate even a momentary connection loss. This loss can cause BYE to hang if it has called an SDK method that never returns. The only way to recover is to kill the BYE process via the task manager and restart.
