      Google Photos can now automatically back up pictures from Canon cameras
      by João Carrasqueira



      Google has announced a new integration between its Google Photos storage service and Canon cameras. It's now possible to have photos from compatible Canon cameras backed up automatically to Google Photos, which should save users some trouble when transferring photos to a computer.

      The integration relies on the image.canon app, which is available on both Android and iOS. If you have a camera that's compatible with the app - a compatibility list can be found here - you can head into the app's settings to set an automatic backup to either Google Photos or Google Drive.

      The reason these are separate options is that Google removed the integration between the two services earlier this year, since users found it confusing. Google Photos integrates with some devices like smart photo frames so you can show off your pictures, whereas you can have random images stored on Google Drive that you don't want to be visible.

      Once you enable automatic syncing, photos will be backed up in original quality. The feature does require a Google One subscription, so it's not exactly free storage, but considering file sizes from professional cameras can be fairly large, you'd probably need more than the free storage tier anyway. Canon users get a free month of Google One with 100GB of storage, so you can get started that way and decide if it's worth it.

      How to use Canon DSLR camera as a webcam with your PC
      by Rajesh Pandey



      With almost all major countries shutting down due to coronavirus outbreak, millions of people across the globe have been forced to work from home. This, in turn, has led to a rise in video meetings and conferences. The problem is that the webcam on most laptops can be of poor quality which means that the video call quality is going to be equally poor. Then, there are people with PCs who don't have a webcam. In both cases, people can buy a webcam from Logitech or any other company to solve the problem. However, there has been a spike in demand for webcams which has led to them being in short supply and their prices increasing dramatically as well.

      If you find yourself in a similar situation and have access to a Canon DSLR or PowerShot camera, you can use it as a webcam for your PC. While it is possible to use DLSRs from Nikon, Sony, and Fuji as a webcam with your PC as well, it requires one to buy a capture card which can cost anywhere between $100-$150. Canon DSLR owners though simply need a miniUSB/microUSB or USB-C cable to connect their camera to the PC and a utility from the company to turn their DSLR into a webcam.

      Another benefit of using a Canon DSLR as a webcam is that it will offer superior video quality compared to your laptop's webcam. So, if you are giving online presentations or holding classes online, you should consider using your Canon DSLR as a webcam for the superior video quality it offers instead of relying on your laptop's built-in webcam. One thing to note is that this method will only work if you have a Windows PC because the utility from Canon is currently not available for Macs.

      The following Canon DSLRs and PowerShot cameras are supported by the EOS Webcam Utility and can be used as a webcam.



      Step 1: Go to the Canon EOS Webcam Utility page on your PC and then select your camera model to download the utility. Proceed to install the utility on your PC and restart it after everything is done.

      Step 2: Grab your Canon camera, power it on, and set it to Movie mode. Depending on which Canon DSLR you own, you either need to rotate the mode selector dial to the icon that looks similar to a cinema camera or simply toggle between camera and movie mode using a dedicated button. After that, change the ISO levels, shutter speed, etc. as per your requirement.

      Image Source: Canon Step 3: Now proceed to connect your camera to your PC using a miniUSB/microUSB or USB-C cable. After that, open the video calling app of your choice like Zoom or Microsoft Teams. Go to the app settings, find the camera option, and select the EOS Web Utility beta from the camera dropdown list.



      Step 4: Wait for a few seconds and the feed from your Canon DSLR should show up on your PC. If it does not, make sure to quit Canon's EOS Utility app if you have it installed. If it still does not work, quit the video calling app you are in and repeat the steps again.

      You should now be able to use your Canon camera as a webcam for your PC.

      Skype users, do note that the version of the app that's available on the app store and the one that comes pre-installed on Windows 10 PCs does not work with the EOS Webcam Utility for some reason. You need to download and use the version of Skype that's available on Microsoft's website.

      If you are still facing any issues in trying to set up and use your Canon webcam as a DSLR on your PC, drop a comment so that we can help you out!

      Hi, i shoot a wedding recently and downloaded all the photos (Canon raw- CR2 files) from the CF card to hard drive, all the photos have the correct file sizes and If i’m scrolling down i can see the small previews perfectly but the problem start when i open the files. 
      few days after i opened the files on lightroom and all the photos from the card are corrupted! I tried open the files in alot of programs but in every program it was damaged photos. 
      Since this wedding i shoot 2 other weddings so i over wrote the memory card so can’t recover from the card.
      I’ve tried every program that was recommended on the web include ExiftTool, cr2 repair and Hex editor but i can’t really understand how to handle file metadata.
      I read in another topic that there is a chance that the header of the file is unreadable but there is a possibility that changing the data of the file can fix the problem. !?
      I’m in desperate need for help because I'm out of options and don't want to have to tell this couple I have lost their photos. anyone knows how to handle file metadata on CR2, repair CR2,  have any recommendation on what to do or can do the work? 
      every success even b&w/ small jpeg or every thing that can be rescued will be helpful.

      I was taking photos the other day at Glacier National Park and halfway through the afternoon the previews stopped showing up on my camera. After inserting the card into my computer I found that the second half of the batch were all the proper size for a photo but are giving me the error "may be damaged or use a file format that is unrecognizable".
       
      I've tried every photo recovery software I could find and they all do not even recognize the files. I tried downloading iHex to possibly remove a damaged header but the photos show up showing only Fs' on every line (I've never used this program before so may be user error, screenshot of when I dragged the photos into the program attached). I have not done anything to the SD card itself besides make a copy of the photos on my computer. I also tried converting to JPG with no luck.
       
      Any ideas?
       
      I've uploaded 4 photos:
      https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0Bwvjk4sXOF52MUtpZXY1TTFFcDQ&usp=sharing
       
      7829 is the last good photo, 7830 is where something went wrong, and 7831/32 are screwed.
       
      Thanks for any help you can give me!!
