I'm just trying to use my S2 and my lappy for remote capture. I have the beta version of PSRemote which is OK. But I have 2 questions.

1) what is the best stand alone software to use for remote capture with the S2
2) can I have live viewfinder images on the lappy prior to taking the shot.

Here is a 3rd party solution that is designed to work with the S1 IS to provide similar functionality to Canon's software (live preview of viewfinder display,remote control of some camera operations, etc.):


Some of the Canon models reviewed here included a software section that reviewed some of it's functionality. Here is an example (Canon G6 review):

Thanks jim,

I tried the PSremote app. beta version 1.5 beta2 but couldn't get the live viewfinder to work. Might have been me. I'll check again.

I also downloaded Canon Remote Capture 2.7.5 (free) which does the live preview ok. The GUI is a bit rough but it seems to work.

Does remote capture support movie recording to the the computer's hard drive instead of the mem card?
