Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

Before I buy this camera, I wnt to be assured that it is compatible with my MacBook. I understand the software is not compatible. Will I have problems downloading photos to the Mac Book?



Answers :

You didn't specify the model of the Sony camera, but I'm going to assume it's a relatively current mode.\012\012\012

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Does Canon have a problem with their software? When I try to download photos the camera is recognized by the software but then the window does not provide software available to download, even though I have downloaded tons of photos prior to this problem. The computer was sent to the shop and the Canon software was uninstalled and then reinstalled. The tech cleaned up some other issues, but is at a loss to figure out why the software will not download photos. We have spent litteraly hours on this
