    Hi,

    I've read the manual, and searched Canon's site, but can't find out how to capture remotely.

    The "Start Remote Shooting" button in the CameraWindow software is disabled, and I can't find a way of enabling it.

    Does anyone know how to make it work?

    Do I need to buy something else?

    Thanks in advance

    Possibly a lead or wireless device?

    Just had a very detailed (not) explanation from Canon support

    So my question would be:

    a) Why does the software show this option, it knows it's a IXUS 55

    b) Why the hell does their support page not list the 55 as not supporting this feature, when it does a whole range of other models.

    Not impressed so far with my Canon purchase..........
