Canon ZoomBrowser EX 5.1
ZoomBrowser is Canon's centralized transfer / browsing / organization / editing and printing application. It's designed for easy of use but doesn't skimp on features. During the installation of ZoomBrowser EX three additional components are also installed:
- RAW Image Task (a plug-in for ZoomBrowser)
- Remote Capture Task (a plug-in for ZoomBrowser)
CameraWindow is Canon's launcher and transfer tool, this can be configured to automatically pop-up when the camera is connected to provide features such as image download, change camera settings, set DPOF, upload images back to the camera and start remote shooting. Options for transfer include just new images, all images, DPOF marked images, destination folder and sub folder creation (year/month/day etc.).
Clicking on the 'Confirms/change camera settings' option displays the 'Camera Settings' dialog as shown below, this allows you to set the owner's name, date & time and optionally format the memory card.
ZoomBrowser EX's default browsing mode is 'Zoom Mode' (as seen below, and hence the name) it provides an overview of folders and sub-folders with a unique automatic sizing thumbnail display. Sub-folders are shown as boxes within a box of thumbnails, you can click on a folder to 'Zoom' into it and display images under that etc. Two other view modes are Scroll Mode (a more traditional thumbnail display with collapsing folder headings) and Preview Mode (a kind of film-strip display). Hover your mouse over any image to see a larger version of it, double-click to view the image in a full size window (see below).
'View Image' mode shows one image in a large window, you can of course browse through images, magnify and scroll around the image (a navigation window opens when you do so), view images four at a time or two at a time and even lock two images side-by-side for comparison purposes.
Returning to browse mode you have a series of buttons shown in the 'Task Area', these provide access to the various features available in ZoomBrowser. Each feature is listed below:
- Acquire & Camera Settings - starts CameraWindow
- Acquire Images
- Set to Camera
- Remote shooting
- View & Classify
- Layout Print - starts PhotoRecord in Layout Print mode
- Contact Sheet Print - starts PhotoRecord in Contact Sheet mode
- Email Images - email selected images, includes resizing / quality
- Image Gateway Top Page
- Image Gateway Album
- Upload to Image Gateway
- Download My Camera Contents
