Canon updates EOS Utility for full Lion compatibility

Fixes launch bug that prevented 10.7 use

Canon has finally updated its Canon EOS Utility to launch and work properly for users of Mac OS X Lion (10.7.x), alleviating a problem Lion users have had for months with the app. The program offers two main abilities to Canon EOS camera users: an Image Capture-like ability to selectively transfer pictures from the camera, as well as an option to remotely operate the camera from a user's computer using a supplied interface cable.

Ironically, older versions of the EOS Utility program were reported to work in Lion up until the 10.7.2 update, but the older version did not support newer cameras. The new version, which is recommended only for users on OS X 10.6.8 or Lion, supports the EOS Rebel (T1i, T2i, T3, T3i, XS and XSi), the EOS Kiss (F, X2, X3, X4, X5 and X50) and the regular EOS lineup (7D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 100D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 600D and 1100D). Users who are still on 10.6.7 or older should not update and stay with the most recent version prior to the new one, which is numbered 2.10.2 according to Canon's release notes.

The new version (v2.10.4) is available from Canon's EOS Utility download page.

    Talk about behind the times...

    I remember updating to Lion back in August and then finding out that EOS Utility was not compatible with the new OS. How long had Apple made the beta available to developers? Luckily, Adobe made their Lightroom software compatible with Lion for tethered shooting. I suppose there is a reason that Canon's software is free.
