    That is not very helpful :(

    Is the camera connected to the PC with the USB cable?

    Did you see that in the files, that the problem is caused by the x5 zoom? Maybe you could send me a version without the zoom (if it's as easy as it sounds) and I would try/use that until you have the chance to work on it.

    Yes, to the log file seems to indicate that the error is caused by setting the position of the zoom rectangle.  I'm only guess that removing it temporarily may at least allow live view to work.

  4. The key comment is "The image that appears has a lot of noise - white marks. Everything else works perfectly."

    This means it works, you do get an image and the image BYN returns is the live view feed as is.

    What does the image on the Camera Display looks like?  Is it the same as you get in BYN?

    Hi again,

    I have downloaded the file and installed it - it works very fine. Problem solved, I would suggest! - Thank you for your quick and efficient support

    YaaaaaaaHoooooooo!!!!!

    I will try to upload a new version in the pre-release section by the weekend.

    Thank you.

     

     


  6. Sometimes dealing with mechanical hardware such as cameras where a physical movement is performed between commands (e.i. lifting the camera mirror box) the camera needs a little pause between commands.  I find this necessary in some cases if the SDK developers where not careful enough.  The Canon SDK is not supported and not well documented.  I'll add a small delay betweed the command that lifts the mirror going into live view and setting this live view zoom mode.  A few milliseconds is an eternity in computer speed and this may make the difference.  Give an a few hours and I'll send you a new download link.

    Regards,  


  7. Okay, I need to think about this one.  I'm going blind as I don't have a 250D to test with. 

    Can you confirm that imaging mode works in that you can create a plan with BULB images > 30 seconds and the download just fine?  This way I know to concentrate only the the live view issue.

    Regards,


  8. Thank you for the log file.  It looks like liveview is initializing just fine but the next command to set the liveview zoom level is failing and this seems to be the issue.

    You said you tried EOS Utility.  In EOS UItility, when you go into live view, can you change the live view zoom level within EOS Utility?

    We're slowly getting there.

    Regards,
