It's easier than ever to get your images from the camera. You install the software first and then plug the camera into the USB port and turn it on in Replay mode. Windows detects the camera and then installs the proper drivers that were already copied to the harddrive.

Now everytime that you plug the camera in to your computer a windows pops up and asks what application you want to use, pick the Canon ZoomBrowser and then the window shown above pops up and displays thumbnails of all the images in the camera. Select any or all and then click on "Download" button.

The selected images are now copied very quickly to the folder that you define in the options. On my Pentium III/1000MHz machine it only takes about 2 seconds per image to copy even the Large/Superfine camera images.

Once the images have been copied you can now view and manipulate them in the main window of the ZoomBrowser application.

You can also check and change the camera's time and date, set the owner's name (handy if the camera is everstolen to prove who it really belongs too), format the CF card and see the status of the battery.

If you have a computer without a USB port you can download camera images via the RS-232 serial (slow) port but you will have to buy the cable, only the USB cable is included.
