USB Auto Download

Canon PowerShot S45

When you connect the S45 to your computer via the USB port it will automatically
initiate the download application as shown above. (These screens were taken
from our G3 review, the S45's software is the same.)

You can select what folder to send the images to and optionally create
a new folder based on the shooting date or download date.

The USB 1.1 port transfers JPEGs in 3 secs and raw files take about 7 secs.
