Hi all,

Guylain, I downloaded the pre-release v3.2.1.RC3 and installed it on Win 10 on my laptop.  I was able to connect to the R6, but when I started a single capture I got the following message on the log file.

Perhaps this will help you.

Not yet.  Please download the latest release 3.2.1 and try it.  

It will not connect but you should be getting something like this displayed in the message center, send me those numbers; they will tell me your model is supported by the current SDK, and we'll take from there.

14:26:58  DEVICEINFO DESCRIPTION IS MTP USB Device
14:26:58  DEVICEINFO NUMBER IS 2971957769.
14:26:58  YOUR *REAL* MODEL NUMBER IS 2147484722(80000432)

According to this it is current SDK supports it since it is connected.

The R6 has a 'B' dial mode for BULB.  Make sure you set it to B when taking bulb images, I suspect it might not.

Hi All,

I have been able to use BYEOS v3.2.1.RC3 with my R6, using Bulb setting not Manual. However, using that mode my settings were not saved when closing the program down.  Thus, each time you open BYEOS you had to reset all of your settings for that session.  My friend who helps me with computer issues found a work around for that problem.  I will touch base with him and see if he can share the steps to do this with all of you.  I am sure he will share that, I could try and walk you thru it but I might miss something.  I will contact him today.

 

Godspeed,

Glen

@AZstarman and @admin, confirming that I also was able to connect my Canon R6 through the Bulb setting. So, that was one step forward.

Unfortunately, I am also experiencing the same problem of the application not retaining settings from the previous session.

Additionally, the application crashed last night during a session with an “This is embarrassing” error message.

Will attempt to get more info later.
