Release Notes

5.6.87.90 August 8, 2021 (Current Release)

  • Fixed bug where selecting and activating a profile causes screen to maximize.
  • Fixed bug where a crash ‘List index out of bounds (0)’ could occur when disconnecting while live view is active.

5.6.55.20 August 3, 2021 (Current Release)

  • Reset the trial period so that if the trial period of a previous version had expired, you can start a new trial for 5.6.
  • Added Canon bodies: EOS M50 Mark II, EOS R6, EOS R5, EOS Rebel T8i, EOS Ra, EOS-1D X Mark III.
  • NEW FEATURE – Added @ASK1-@ASK9 tokens which allow you to enter data into the new ASK tab. This data is inserted into whereever you put the tokens (folder, filename, metadata). The configuration is stored in the profile. The @ASK data is written to each image as it is captured. You can use this to enter image data, then capture some images of a subject and have the folder/filename/metadata of those images reflect the data. Then when you are read to shoot a new subject, you enter new data and start shooting. This is different from the batch workflow in that you don’t need a pre-defined database. You can make the ASK tab visible by toggling it in the View menu. You can also set a shortcut to toggle betwen the ASK tab and the previous tab.
  • You can now inject tokens into the folder, filename and metadata boxes by using the small @ button above those boxes.
  • Added a file path preview just below the filename box. This will show you what the path will be with the tokens you have configured.
  • Fixed bug where live view may try to turn on when shutting down app, causing a crash.
  • Fixed bug where then Preferences setting Live View auto-show Layers tab didn’t work.
  • Fixed bug where sometimes if you clicked on a tab (like a workflow or trigger tab), the tabs would start flickering.
  • Changed the title bar and main menu. The program name no longer appears here, and the maximize, restore and minimize buttons are now easier to read.
  • Removed the bottom battery indicator and moved it to a small battery icon on the top of screen beside the minimize button. This free’s up some vertical space.
  • Removed the file transfer progress bar and moved it to just under the menu’s at the top of the screen. It is only visible when transferring images.
  • Moved the current profile name to the Profile group header (just above the profile list).
  • Moved the browser image number and name to be overlaid on the lower left part of the main image to free up vertical space. This can be toggled in the right-click image popup menu in the image browser.
  • Moved the browser metadata, directory tree and histogram into collapsable panels so all can be seen at the same time without needing to flip tabs.

5.5.78.90 January 26, 2020

  • Added an option in the Preferences/live view tab that allows the live view layers tab to be automatically displayed when you start live view.

  • You can now display a command toolbar in the image browser (right click on image for menu).
  • Now if you are trying to enable a speech trigger and the program doesn’t have permissions (Windows10 microphone permissions), a speech trigger log entry is displayed instead of a crash.

5.4.98.80 February 18, 2018

We are really happy to announce ControlMyCanon version 5.4.  It is a massive upgrade from version 4.3 and contains all sorts of new features.  Many thanks to all our beta testers who put it through it’s paces!

So, what is new in 5.4?  A lot.  Tons.  The best way to understand what is changed is to download the free 14-day trial, and then open up the tutorial video that we made from ControlMyNikon 5 when it was upgraded from 4.3.

ControlMyCanon and ControlMyNikon are almost identical and are based on the same code, so the ControlMyNikon help and tutorials will help you get to know the new ControlMyCanon. 

Please note that your version 4.3 ControlMyCanon product key will not work in version 5.x, as it requires a new key.  For our customers who purchased version 4.3 in the last several months, we will provide a free Standard product key for 5.4.  Just email us your current 4.3 key and the email address you used to purchase 4.3 and we will send you the 5.4 key.
