Setting the communication protocol to PTP is fine for simply downloading pictures from the camera to the computer. However I need for my application to use the remote capture to take pictures from the computer. I use the camera for some data acquisition and I need the computer to be able to control the camera.

Does anyone know how I could get this to work with windows 7? My IT manager decided to upgrade all machines to win 7 and doesn't want me to get a machine working with XP or earlier.

PTP means Picture Transfer Protocol. Technically it is a means for the camera and a printer or mass storage device to directly communicate together without a computer USB host.

Most modern operating systems will allow picture transfer to the computer under the "normal" setting but some (XP and OSX mostly) don't work quite right but work well when the camera is set to PTP instead.

i would just install eos utility. that way you can shoot tethered. meaning you can control and operate the camera while connected to usb. it is convenient for studio work. you can also use the camera normally and preview shots instantly on a real monitor with adobe bridge or preview or whatever. very useful on shots that are important.
