Popular alternative to Canon's image downloading and remote control app moves to a new address...
Users of Canon's PowerShot cameras may have been wondering what happened to Cam4You, the shareware program created by Hans-David Alkenius of Sweden which serves as an image downloader and also allows for some remote control of certain Powershot cameras... Cam4You's website, which was hosted on Tripod, was deleted without any warning and a second Tripod site created in its absence met the same fate.
Hans-David has now arranged with the jpegclub.org website to provide Cam4You's new home. A few new versions of the software have been released in the last few days, and the most recent is version 2.1.0 Build 1. The program supports PowerShot Pro90 IS, G1, D30, S20, S10, S100/IXUS, A50, Pro70, A5 Zoom, and A5 cameras to varying degrees, and has gotten some new features recently, including the ability to use some of these cameras as 'webcams' of a sort.
If you own one of the supported cameras, give Cam4You a try - the software can do some pretty neat things! In particular, Hans-David noted on a post that he was looking for people with Canon's PowerShot S100 to try the latest version out and let him know how it works... Visit the new Cam4You website to get the latest version!
