How to connect Canon 7D to Computer
Important things to keep in mind before connecting Canon 7D with a computer
To transfer photos and videos from your Canon 7D camera to your computer, you can connect it to your computer. There are some things you should know before you begin the process.
1. Use a USB cable to connect the camera to your computer. It is possible for high resolution images to take too much time to transfer, so a USB cable with 480 Mbps speed is highly recommended. You can find it on Amazon
2. Before you connect it to the camera, make sure to turn off the camera.
3. When connecting your Canon 7D with your computer, it is recommended to use the AC adapter Kit ACK-E6. You can find it on Amazon. This adapter allows you to charge your camera from an AC outlet. You will be able both to prevent your battery from being constantly charged and also avoid interruptions if it runs low.
