I've spent a week now trying to get my Canon 600d to work with backyard. I've tried the classic version and the 3.1.3 version. I was hoping to solve this problem and so help others with a
I have two old Dell Latitude 610's, running XP, SP3, and have and tried both.
Also tried a W8 laptop.
I've tried with battery and with power pack adaptor. I've tried various USB leads (up to 2M long),
the latest a Belkin Pro.
BUT the 600d continues to play up, in spite it being new.
It's very erratic and unpredictable, although the 600d works OK with an Intervalometer.
Most times the camera is either not recognised, or if it is, it will not download images. It goes through the imaging section then freezes at DOWNLOAD,
At other times backyard displays without the 3 bottom right buttons showing ! (Capture, Loop, Preview). Sometimes even the actual laptop doesn't show the 600d !!
NOW for the good news........ I also have a Canon 450d, not new, but it works OK
on both laptops with backyard without any problems at all and is now installed on my rig.
If anyone else has a 600d and it runs OK I would be interested to hear what it is running on etc.
Finally, I consider that backyard is the very best imaging app for the DSLR on the market.......
So well laid out, ergonomically sound as one might say.
