works like a charm, great contr, a quick question, do we know why the resolution is dropping down to 1056x704 (no matter which mode is setted on my 600D / T3i) ?

gumilastik Hi!
Please tell me what need make for it worked?
I use EOS 7D, connected to PC with usb, and open patch, but EDSDK node red.
Thank you =)

@isdzaurov : Isn't it a x86/x64 problem?

isdzaurov 08/01/2016 - 19:11

sebescudie i use win10 x64

nissidis 10/01/2016 - 15:48

@zeos: thx for the info

there is one more. When I start a custom made patch (with the ESDK node in it) and my camera is connected (via USB) the vvvv crashes. Does anybody else experienced that so far ?

sebescudie 11/01/2016 - 12:41

@isdzaurov : I meant the plugin version, didn't you dl the x86 version w/ a x64 vvvv ?

isdzaurov 11/01/2016 - 17:39

Ha =)
I'm stupid, i used x32 )))
Download x64 and now working!
Thank sebescudie

Thank's for this node.
But i cant shoot synchronously on multidevice? There is a way to get there ?

differ 29/08/2016 - 19:45

I need some help, I downloaded x86 but cant make it work in 32 bits vvvv, it shows a red node because vvvv cant find the CameraIn.csproj, where do I find this node?

zipclownz 28/06/2017 - 19:02

Hi guys!
I tryed to use this plugiin, but i get this message

         Node EDSDK (Canon) (D:\soft\4v\4v\vvvv_50beta35.8_x64\packs\EDSDK-x64\CameraIn.csproj) is missing.

Could you tell me,please, where i can find this file "CameraIn.csproj" ?

There is a forum thread about some bugfixes - find it here:

Update to the latest sdk:

vnm 23/10/2019 - 18:14

@nzo.nzo multidevice is tricky.
In simple case, use some vvvv instances.
I have multidevice plugin for live view, but it supports only live view and doesnt have any settings.

Yoctopory 25/02/2020 - 15:13

I got it to run with an old Canon EOS 1200D.
However, the same patch doesn't work with a new EOS 2000D.
Error-Message: EDS_ERR_DEVICE_BUSY (0x2003)

Anybody knows something about this? Does it not work with the new camera models anymore?

u7angel 29/02/2020 - 10:53


you can try this. it is compiled against the latest vvvv and the latest edsdk. drag drop the canonplugin.dll in your patch. make sure you use the 64bit version of vvvv.

i can not test this right now since i'm on the road without a canon cam.

let me know if this works.

Yoctopory 02/03/2020 - 14:17

@Zelesha This did the trick; thank you so much! You are my hero.

Yoctopory 21/05/2020 - 13:51

Sometimes, seemingly out of nowhere the EDSDK-patch freezes.
Anyone know something about that?

Also it seems like sometimes the camera is suddenly not detected by the PC anymore and doesn't react to commands anymore.

Any help is much appreciated.
