Remote Capture for Canon PowerShot cameras is a tool for controlling Canon PowerShot cameras. It has been tested with the following Canon PowerShot cameras: S50, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A510, A520, G6, S400, S410, and S500. The main advantage of Capture compared to gPhoto is that the consecutive shots are taken without the camera lenses being closed and opened again. When taking several thousand shots in a row, this indeed lets the camera live longer. If you do not need this feature, gPhoto is sufficient.
