OPT USB Cable & Driver for Images Plus Software
OPT USB Cable & Driver for Images Plus SoftwareFeatures
This 20 foot cable was designed for use with ImagesPlus Imaging Software. For downloading images, ImagesPlus software connects to the camera via the USB cable that came with the camera, allowing you to set capture mode, ISO settings, etc. However the camera's USB control is limited to 30 second long (or less) exposures. While the camera has a "bulb" setting for unlimited manual shutter control, it is only accessible through the camera's remote shutter control port. This port is intended for connection of external timers and switches that simulate a cable shutter release in a conventional film camera. This is where this special cable is required between a PC and the camera. ImagesPlus supports control of the camera through a PC's serial or parallel port. But what do you do if you don't have either? This cable is the answer. Load the included driver and you'll have complete control of your camera's shutter to take long exposures using ImagesPlus' Bulb Capture capabilities.

- Molded connectors with integrated strain relief
- USB connector for the PC and a 2.5mm stereo-type connector for the camera shutter control port

Product QuestionsQuestion by: Paul_V on Aug 22, 2014 12:03:37 AMQuestion by: skyman on Sep 23, 2014 8:08:47 PMNo. For all Canon cameras after the 5D MkII/40D/450D (which came out in 2007 and 2008), you only need the single USB cable that comes with the camera to image longer than 30 seconds. Just set your camera to Bulb mode (either the B on the dial or M with exposure scrolled past 30 seconds). This cable is for cameras earlier than that like the original 5D, the 10/20/30D and the 300/350/400D and requires a special remote cable with a 2.5mm female jack.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Sep 24, 2014 5:01:51 AM
