1. What are the Canon Digital Camera SDKs?
SDK stands for Software Development Kit. The SDKs for EOS Digital SLRs and PowerShot compact digital cameras are separate. There are two (2) current Canon Digital Camera SDK versions:
- EDSDK 2.15 Windows version for select EOS Digital SLRs
- EDSDK 2.15 Macintosh version for select EOS Digital SLRs
The Canon Digital Camera SDKs comprise a set of APIs, DLLs, and static link libraries that provide an interface for accessing Canon digital cameras and data generated by Canon digital cameras.
EDSDK 2.15 Windows and Macintosh version support remote control for some EOS cameras, RAW image conversion and downloading from select EOS Digital SLRs with DIGIC 4, DIGIC III or DIGIC II processors released over the past five years, starting with the EOS-1D Mark III and continuing through to the EOS-1D X.
All Canon Digital Camera SDK versions are written in C. There are no current ActiveX versions. The ONLY supported Operating Systems are Windows 7, 8, 8.1,Mac OS X 10.8 - 10.9.
PLEASE NOTE: EDSK is not 64-bit compatible. A 64-bit library is provided as part of the EDSDK, limited to the camera connect functions, as a beta version on a trial basis.
Furthermore, there is no explicit support for other operating systems or development environments including but not limited to: Windows 2000, Windows XP X64 Edition, Windows CE, Windows Mobile Edition, Windows Media Center, Linux, Sun, Unix, HP-Unix, OS/2, Free BSD, Java, Cocoa, etc. Canon Inc. has indicated no plans to develop SDKs for any of these operating systems or development environments.
Additional Notes on this release:
- 1.1 Built-in Wi-Fi transmitter of EOS 6D is not supported.
- 1.2 In the case of EOS M, remote shooting function is not supported.
- 1.3 From the previous version, it allows only to start/stop movie shooting. When using a 64-bit library, however, some low-end cameras do not display the live view image during movie shooting. Incidentally, the 64-bit library is available only on a trial basis same as the previous version.
2. Do the Canon Digital Camera SDKs replace the software supplied with my Canon digital camera?
The Digital Camera SDKs do not replace the software that was supplied with your Canon digital camera. If you have reached this page in error while looking for Canon digital camera software, please go to the following web page:
This page links to support pages for specific Canon digital cameras. On each digital camera support page, we provide a link to all Canon digital camera software available online for that model, including free updates for ZoomBrowser EX and ImageBrowser for customers who have installed earlier versions of these applications.
