> The Promote Control is compatible with digital cameras supporting an

> over USB interface. A non-exhaustive list of supported cameras
> includes the following brands and models:
> Nikon: D3, D3X, D2X, D2Xs, D2H, D2Hs, D200, D300, D700, D40, D40x,
> D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D5000
> Canon: 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 5D Mark II, 30D, 40D, 50D, 400D,
> 450D, 500D, 1000D
> NOTE 1: Canon 5D Mk I, 1D/1Ds Mk I and 1D/1Ds Mk II cameras are not
> supported in HDR mode. Only basic operations such as One-Shot,
> Time-Lapse and Manual Hold are available on these cameras, and would
> require a CN3 cable to be connected. Canon 5D Mark II and 1D/1Ds Mark
> III cameras are fully supported, including HDR mode.
> NOTE 2: On Canon 5D Mark II the longest automatic HDR exposure is
> limited to 30 seconds due to mechanical Bulb mode activation. A
> future Promote Control firmware update will prompt to activate Bulb
> mode manually as required. At this time using a higher ISO setting is
> recommended with Canon 5D Mark II if an exposure longer than 30
> seconds is required in HDR mode.
> (It is interesting to see the difference between the original Canon
> 5D and the 5D mkII; only basic ops on the older model.)
> I should be reviewing this for MacUser very soon. USPS tracking says
> 'delivery attempted' at the office...
