Loved the review for the A650 IS - so much I bought one. Very pleased with it, easy to use and great results.

However - quoting from the review - "The DIGITAL port connects USB 2.0 (high-speed) to the computer for download and camera control with the RemoteCapture software"

The Remote capture feature is the sole reason for buying another camera. This is not a faeture of the A650 IS. Canon have confirmed this.

The PS remote doesn't seem to do the job either.

Does the reviewer know something I don't or a way of achieving this, or was it an incorrect assumption?

Thanks, Tony
... seriously, any ideas???



Come on Steve...!!!

What page are you looking at? I can't find what you're referring to from a quick skim through the review. Are you sure you are looking at the correct review?

This is what I see on page 2 (it specifically mentions that this camera does not support RemoteCapture). Unless it's been fixed since you originally looked at it (and mistakes do happen), I don't see a problem anywhere unless I'm just missing something.

The DIGITAL port connects USB 2.0 (high-speed) to a computer for downloading you images and movies. It also allows for Direct printing to any PictBridge compatible printer, Canon Card Photo Printer or Bubblejet Direct photo printers. Unlike the A640, the A650 IS does Not work with Canon's RemoteCapture software.

It did say "The DIGITAL port connects USB 2.0 (high-speed) to the computer for download and camera control with the RemoteCapture software"


...and so it must have been fixed in the last few days, if I look at the Cached Google page it is still the old version as above.

Thanks for fixing the error, sadly too late for me

Real shame, I absolutley love the camera, and it looks like I wil have to bite the bullet and buy another one - I guess the A640 which does have the remote capture but not as good as the 650

the review says:

Quote:
Movie mode produced above average results for a consumer model. You can choose a resolution of 1024x480 (15fps) or 640x480/320x240 (30 fps) in Standard mode.
Could someone confirm that the Canon A650 really records at 1024x480 (15fps)? I didn't find that information in many other websites. And 1024x480 makes a very strange ratio.
