PSRemote Features

Please note: PSRemote was withdrawn from sale on January 1st 2018 and there will be no more releases to support new cameras or new versions of Windows. Registered users may continue using any version of PSRemote released within one year of their purchase for as long as they like.

  • Take control of your Canon PowerShot camera from your PC
  • Photos automatically downloaded to the PC and displayed in a large preview window (see below)
  • Fullscreen mode for large, uncluttered display of images

  • Live viewfinder display on PC screen with optional 2x, 3x, 4x or fullscreen scaling
  • Optional cropping of images by defining the crop area in the live viewfinder window
  • Time-Lapse feature allows the number of photos in a sequence and the interval between shots to be specified over extended periods
  • Photo booth mode for weddings, parties and other events
  • Automatic processing of images for product shots and online auctions such as eBay (resizes, auto levels and sharpens the image)
  • Motion detection using the live viewfinder display - ideal for wildlife photography and security cameras (requires separate purchase of Webcam ZoneTrigger)
  • Auto bracketing of exposures by varying the shutter speed or aperture for taking pictures in tricky lighting conditions and for high dynamic range (HDR) photography
  • Photos are saved on the PC's hard disk and can also be saved on the memory card in the camera
  • Grid overlay display for accurate alignment of studio shots. The size and color of the grid is user definable
  • Automatic screen blank option - blanks the screen before taking a photo so that the light from the PC display doesn’t affect the subject lighting
  • Choose to take photos from the camera or from the PC
  • Automatic edit option - automatically loads the image after downloading into the editor or program of your choice
  • Automatically stores a short comment in the shooting data of images for easy identification e.g. the person’s name when taking id photos
  • Optional flashing highlight display to make it easier to identify over exposed areas
  • ‘Onion skinning’ option in live viewfinder display. ‘Onion skinning’ superimposes the live viewfinder data over the last image taken and is a big help when creating animations
  • Full size preview window can display a critical area of the photo e.g. the eyes and face of your model during a portrait shoot
  • Remembers camera settings and restores them when the camera is next used with PSRemote

Interface with other applications

PSRemote also includes a DLL and a sample program (complete with C++ source code) which allows other applications to release the camera's shutter and adjust the shutter speed and aperture. This opens up many exciting possibilities such as movement or sound sensors being used to trigger the camera for taking wild-life shots with this remote capture tool. Please see the online help pages for details.

See the online help pages for screenshots and a detailed description of what PSRemote can do.

PowerShot cameras supported

After the release of the G10 at the end of 2008 Canon stopped including the ability to control PowerShot cameras from a PC and none of their current models support this. If you are having difficulty purchasing a PowerShot camera that supports remote capture it might be worth considering a Canon EOS DSLR and our DSLR Remote Pro for Windows software.

The most recent Canon PowerShot models that can be used with PSRemote are the G10, G9, SX110 IS, SX100 IS and S5 IS.
Please note: The Canon PowerShot G9 and Canon PowerShot G10 do not support shooting in raw mode when connected to a PC.
