• This guide assumes that all the relevant software programs
and drivers have been correctly installed on your computer. If
you have not yet installed them, read the guide supplied with
your product and install them.
○
There are two ways to start ZoomBrowser EX: “Auto Start” and
“Starting ZoomBrowser EX from the Icon.” The “Auto Start”
method is generally the most convenient for downloading
images from the camera. Use the icon method under the
following circumstances.
• To use ZoomBrowser EX when a camera or memory card
reader is not connected.
• To restart ZoomBrowser EX with a camera or memory card
reader already attached after the program has been closed.
• To use ZoomBrowser EX when the Auto Start function has
been set to start a different program when the camera is
connected.

the Auto Start method the very first time the camera is
connected after the computer has been booted up (due to a
Windows limitation). Use the icon method in this case. You
can use the Auto Start method from the second time onward.

You can start ZoomBrowser EX with this method by attaching
the camera to the computer and preparing it to transfer data.
Set the following Auto Start Settings the first time (only) that
you connect the camera to a computer. If you have already set
them, proceed to the steps on the next page.
Your computer system
will determine which
programs appear.
■ Settings for the First Connection to a Computer
1.
Use the interface cable to connect the camera to the
computer.
Please see your Camera User Guide for information on how to
connect the camera to a computer. With some camera models,
you must set the camera to the Playback mode to establish a
connection to a computer.
A dialog similar to the following one (Events dialog) will appear.
If it does not, read the Troubleshooting section in the
Appendices.
2.

Downloading Images to a Computer (4/8)
This section describes two methods for downloading images shot from
the camera to a computer.
Using Camera Commands to Download Images
■ Downloading Images with Camera Commands
1.
You can use this method to download images with cameras
that support the direct transfer function.
■ Downloading Images with Computer Commands
This method uses commands entered on the computer to
download images from a memory card in a camera or in a
memory card reader. This method can be used regardless of
whether your camera supports the direct transfer function or not.
Read the dialog that displays.
If a Camera Control Window similar to the one below opens,
proceed to Step 2.
If your camera features a
(Print/Share) button, it will flash
and a Direct Transfer menu similar to the lower right one will
appear on the camera’s LCD monitor.

recorded using the Sound Recorder feature. The downloading
procedures are explained in Chapter 3 "Downloading Sound
Files from the Camera."
• If images shot on different days are contained on a memory
card, the images are saved into folders bearing the shooting
date when they are downloaded to the computer.

orientation. However, it does not alter the image data itself. If a
rotated image is opened in a program that does not support
rotated display, it will appear in its pre-rotation state. See
“Customizing Preferences” in the Appendices for an explanation
of how to alter the image data with rotation information so it
downloads in the rotated orientation.

• See your Camera User Guide to check whether your camera
supports the remote shooting function or not.
• On camera models with lens covers, open the lens cover
before remote shooting.
• Ensure that you turn off your computer’s standby feature
before you begin remote shooting. The results cannot be
guaranteed if the computer enters the standby mode while
remote shooting.
• Except for the shutter button, the camera’s buttons and
switches, including the zoom, cannot be manually operated
while the camera is being remotely controlled.
• The time lag between pushing the shutter button and the
release of the shutter is slightly longer for remote shooting
compared with the normal mode of operation.

Refreshing Folders
This section explains how to refresh or update a folder.
What Does It Mean to Refresh a Folder
Refreshing Folders
Click the [View] menu and select [Refresh Current Folder]. This
will update ZoomBrowser EX’s information about all the folders.
Adding, moving, copying or editing an image or a folder within
ZoomBrowser EX ensures that it is updated and appears
correctly in the Browsing Area.
However, the information ZoomBrowser EX possesses and the
actual file contents can be different when an image file is
moved or copied using Windows functions or edited with a
separate program.
In this case, the “current state of the folders” has to be
checked and updated. This is what is meant by refreshing a
folder.

to be saved. In other words, if you turn down the volume of a

when you play it, the sound will have a low volume when you
upload it to the camera. So when the playback volume is too
loud on the computer, turn down the volume of the speakers.

Converting RAW Images (1/6)
If your camera supports RAW images you can handle higher quality
images.
However, since they are a special type of image, they cannot be opened
by many image editing programs. It is first necessary to convert them
into standard image files.
This section explains conversion procedures.

Supported Image Types
The following is a list of image types supported by ZoomBrowser EX.
Readable data types
ZoomBrowser EX can read the following image types.
■ JPEG (.JPG)
Most cameras use this image type. It compresses at very high
ratios, taking advantage of the characteristics of the human
eye. However, because it is an irreversible compression method
(part of the data is lost during compression), if you process and
save an image repeatedly using this method, the image may
become rougher.
■ Video clip (.AVI)
Standard Windows movie image type. The movie thumbnail
and a movie icon show in ZoomBrowser EX’s Browser Area.
■ QuickTime (.MOV)
This is a movie which display as a movie mark in the Browsing
Area of ZoomBrowser EX.
■ MPEG4 (.ASF)
Movies that integrate multimedia data, such as video, audio
and text. Primarily used by Windows programs. The MPEG4
compression technology allows for compact file sizes and
delivery over networks.
■ RAW (.CRW)
This is a proprietary image type provided by Canon. It saves the
output of the image pixels from a digital camera without any
deterioration in the quality of the image. Some cameras might
not support this image type.
■ Windows bitmap (.BMP)
This file type comes standard with Windows. Most Windows
programs support it.
■ TIFF (.TIF)
This is a relatively popular image type. It is widely supported by
non-Windows programs (such as Macintosh).
■ PhotoCD (.PCD)
This is the image type used by Photo CDs.

In that case, click the [Start] menu and select [Programs] or
[All Programs], followed by [Canon Utilities], [CameraWindow]
and [CameraWindow].
■ Check your Computer
Ensure that your computer meets the following requirements.
ZoomBrowser EX will not operate on computers failing to meet
these requirements.
• Built-in USB ports on a computer pre-installed with Windows XP
(including Service Pack 1, Service Pack 2)/Windows 2000 Service
Pack 4 only/Windows Me/Windows 98 SE only.
■ Check the Connection between the Camera and Computer
Camera Not Detected or Recognized

How to Get Help
ZoomBrowser EX comes with a Help file. Use it when you want
to learn how to do an operation, or when you want to know
about the features of the program.
You can access Help from the [Help] menu or the [?] (Help)

■ Check the battery
Help Menu
You are recommended to use a household power source (AC
adapter) for the camera when connecting it to the computer. If
the camera is running on batteries, ensure they are fully
charged.
If the problem does not rest in the four areas above, the driver
may not be properly installed. Uninstall the driver and then
reinstall it. For instructions for this task, refer to the Software
Starter Guide.
