Support for Canon Mirrorless Cameras

Post by cpburki » 15.09.2020 00:22

When will Helicon start supporting Cannon Mirrorless Cameras or any mirrorless camera from any manufacturer? What a bitter disappointment Helicon Soft has been with their Helicon Remote product. Please don't tell me it is not possible at this time since Kuuvik Capture supports Focus Bracketing for the Canon R and the Canon RP on both the Mac and iPad and can do it using WiFi or Tethered. Canon made their mirrorless products available in October of 2018 and here we are coming towards the close of 2020 and Helicon Soft has nothing for any mirrorless product. When Kuuvik (DIRE Studio) provides support for the new Canon R5 and Canon R6 in the next couple of months and provides Focus Bracketing at the same time as Exposure Bracketing I will request a refund from you folks for such a bitterly disappointing product. By the time you people roll out support for a product it is already out of production. There, now I vented my frustration at you so back to my original questions: When will you support Canon Mirrorless Cameras and please don't give me the song and dance of "We are working on it". Just a straight answer.

And when can we expect support for the Canon R5? 2 years from now?

I have downloaded HR Beta and I can select the Canon R5. With camera in Manual mode I can change the exposure settings. I can toggle the live view button but nothing happens on my Mac (catalina) - No image is displayed and I can not take a fast preview, nor a picture

Kuuvik Capture 5 now supports Canon R5 for Focus Bracketing. It is still missing the ability to Focus Bracket at the same time as Exposure Bracketing but the developer is working on this feature. The great thing is that DIRE Studio, developer of Kuuvik Capture 5, took only 2 months to get his product working on the Canon R5 and has supported the Canon R and RP for 1.5 years now. They have done in a couple of months what Helicon hasn’t been able to do for 2 years. I hope to be off the Helicon Remote system in the next 60 days. Thank God.
