This is a re-post of a message posted in the "general" area of this forum.


I bought a Sony F717 off Ebay last week.


Even using auto settings it takes DRAMATICALLY sharper shots than my Canon A20.

Considering my limited needs I'm completely satisfied with this camera and particularilly appreciate the intuitive (for me) controls, menus, etc.

What I don't appreciate is the PIXELLA capture/edit software that came with the camera. Luckily I can download/organize/minor edit with the Canon Image Browser software, although it provides minimal EXIF(?) info for the Sony (it does however provide extensive info for the Canon A20 shots).

Other than the EXIF/Sony problem Image Browser would be perfect for my needs as I'd do more advanced editing in PhotoShop.

My question ? Might there be some way to "trick" Image Browser to more fully "recognise" the Sony ... or ... can someone suggest some simple, basic, FAST (free?) software compatible with Mac 9.2 OS and Sony F717?

If you haven't already figured it out I have very minimal knowledge of digital cameras and software so please excuse my probable misuse of terms.
