    New 50D Software- Delete the 400D software first ?

    So I got my new 50D today .. whoo hooo.. okay had to do that.

    Now I am asking should I delete all the software on the computer that came with the 400D before I drop the 50D Discs into the computer and load them up ?
    Comments and CC welcome..

    As I recall, David, you can just install away: it's essentially the same software, just a more recent version of it. It will take care of upgrading your installations all by itself.

    It's also worth checking the Canon website, there may be more recent versions than the ones on the 50D disk.

    Nice work David, lets us know how it compares to the 400D. IQ wise

    comments and criticisms are always appreciated.
    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.

    Congrats on the 50D David

    Check here for software updates:

    I'd probably myself just install the driver and then do the updates on the canon site above for the software from the 400D
