The Original Canon EOS 5D Mark I Camera

The Original Canon EOS 5D Mark I Camera

Hi
I want to shoot without a memory card and have
My images go straight to my computer.
I have no idea what to do.
My camera is EOS 5D.


Thanks for your question, Anna.

I am assuming you have the first original 5D and not the 5D Mark II or Mark III. The original Canon 5D was built in 2005 before wireless transfer of images became so much more popular and it will be difficult to rig up a smoothly working wireless set-up.

It also depends on whether you are a Mac user or PC

You can tether directly from the 5D and use the EOS utility software that comes with the camera to control camera functions from a computer which should include the ability to input directly to your hard drive.

The Camranger is a very popular wireless system but is only compatible with the 5D Mark II and Mark III.

With my particular photography style I always concentrate on shooting with the camera in my hands during a shoot and handle image transfer, back-up, and processing afterward, so I have no personal experience to draw from.

Once I bought my Canon 5D Mark III my 5D Mark I became my back-up camera.

Good Luck,
Canon Geek
