Thanks for posting this. I had been checking every day since Canon said they would make it Mac compatible, the one day I stop checking, they finally release it, I guess I just needed to stop checking.

Please keep checking, then stop, to see when Canon 70D and Zoom-Mojave get supported

Canon rushed this out for Windows 10 and left Mac users waiting. I will be buying a low end Canon camera to try this out. Advantages of these cameras can include manually controlling exposure, color balance and depth of field (with the right lens).

Even the 70D is not on the list. It has to be 80D or newer.

For Windows, some people reported some cameras not on that list worked certain conditions. If you have the cable, give it a try.

The software is model-specific? So if I have multiple supported Canon cameras I need to download and install software for each camera?

Great!

I finally have a purpose for the odd 5D lying about.
