Why can't I capture with my Canon EOS camera from iStopMotion?

        <div class="EmbeddedContent"><strong>Why can't I capture with my Canon EOS camera from iStopMotion?</strong>
           <p>If you have the Canon EOS Utility installed, it will open up by default as soon as you connect your Canon EOS DSLR. This will interfere with the communication between iStopMotion and your camera. Even closing EOS Utility will not solve this issue if it ran once. <br> To solve this, please open up "Image Capture" that you find in your /Applications folder, make sure your EOS camera is selected in the left hand column, then open the "Connecting options" (1) and select "No application" (2) instead of "EOS utility". <img src="http://www.boinx.com/chronicles/media/MD001518.png" width="426" height="502" \\><br> Now disconnect your camera, close Image Capture, close EOS utility and close iStopMotion. Now re-connect the camera and re-open iStopMotion. Caturing using your EOS camera should now work without any problem. Check out the original article for more information!</p>

i can not connect my EOS 600D with iStopMotion when i set like this. Can I get some help?

Did you restart your computer after setting up the Image Capture application?
Which MacOS-X Version you are using?
What is happening in iStopMotion that let you think you can’t use your camera with it?

Hello, just connected a EOS700D and still have the same experience. We are not able to bring Canon DSLR and iStopMotion together. The camera is not listed in the field “source” and whatever we do won´t improve it. EOS utility is now uninstalled and the camera setting in the “image capture” program are done as shown above. Can you give us a hint how we can get the camera to work ?

We also recognize that the “Digital camera test” will not complete with any result (feels like a loop).

If you have an detailed advice how to connect the DSLR it would be fine if you can provide one.

Unfortunately the Canon 700D isn’t recognized by MacOS 10.7.5 correctly and therefore iStopMotion isn’t able to talk to it. However I own the 700D myself and we successfully tested it on 10.8 and 10.9 systems. Which system version are you working on?

Hello again - yes we have figured out the same issue, afar reading it in an other post. On my brother´s MAC with ML it works fine, but with 10.7.5 it doesn´t. So even if all other programs running fine (we see no issues) something prevent iStopMotion from accessing the DSLR. We will upgrade our MAC this weekend to 10.8.5

hello OlliPX and Achim,

i have the same problem now. Could you find out in the end how to solve the problem? I have a canon 700D and a mac 10.8.2. The Firmware of the camera is 1.1.3 for the camera and 1.5.0 for the objectiv. i will be greatful for your advice. thanx, Tiki

I tried this and still no success. I am using the Canon EOS Rebel T3. When I click the camera in source, it will say “Preparing Source” and will stay that way forever. Any suggestions?

@MicahEstlin‌ Can you please open the “Console” application by Apple and see if there are any specific error messages popping up right at the time when you selecting the camera source in iStopMotion?

I have fixed the problem, all I had to do was take out the SD card. But I did buy this camera expecting that the live wveiw function would work with iStopmotion. I did try that though, and the console said AM mdworker: (Warning) Import: Bad Path

still any suggestions on how to get the live view working???

it is really annoying me

Hello, I have a Canon 700D which istop motion is not allowing live feed or capturing images. The first day I used Istop, it worked perfectly. The next day it started to glitch. I did the above and it worked for a day but now I can’t get Istop to allow live feed or capture. The istop viewing window says “You need to enable the live preview from the control bar below.” In the control bar below I have the overlay slider all the way towards the camera icon and in the source tab the live view button is pressed but it cannot calibrate. Also, sometimes if I change the source back to the built in camera and to Canon, then the live feed works. But if I then try to calibrate, the live feed comes through but a window pops up saying “The operation couldn’t be completed. (ISM Capture Source Error 9006)”. At this point the record button is grey and won’t let me capture images. If I don’t try to calibrate and try to capture an image after changing the source to built in camera to canon, a window pops up saying “could not connect to digital still camera. Operation timed out.” I have OS X 10.9.5. Please advice. Thank you.
