Remote Live View Display on a Mac

Display large, high quality live preview images on your Mac's screen with the Canon EOS-1D C, Canon EOS-1D X, Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, Canon EOS-1D Mark III, Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EOS 6D, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS 40D, Canon EOS 50D, Canon EOS 60D, Canon EOS 70D, Canon EOS 1100D/Rebel T3, Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1, Canon ESO 700D/Rebel T5i, Canon EOS 650D/Rebel T4i, Canon EOS 600D/Rebel T3i, Canon EOS 550D/Rebel T2i, Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i, Canon EOS 450D/Rebel XSi or Canon EOS 1000D/Rebel XS. The live view has two modes:

  1. Full frame display with optional live histogram display
  2. Zoomed display showing a portion of the frame at 100% magnification (actual pixels)

Please note: Some cameras ship with live view disabled and this has to be enabled before live view can be used. To do this press the "Menu" button on the back of the camera, scroll through the menus until you find the "Live View function settings", select this and then enable live view. Please also check that the exposure mode is set to one of the "creative" settings (P, Tv, AV or M) because live view is not available on some camera models when using the "subject" settings (portrait, landscape, sports etc.).
