>promote is nikon only...Some Promote Systems products are Nikon only, but the Promote Control
works with Canon as well - as long as you order the right cables.
Here's a bit from the Promote web site
The Promote Control is compatible with digital cameras supporting an
industry standard PTP/MTP protocol for controlling camera functions
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...
