How to use your laptop as a preview monitor for your EOS Camera

If you’re a Canon EOS owner, there is a free tool that turns your laptop or desktop into a free preview monitor and camera control unit. I have found this to be incredibly helpful in numerous situations, including but not limited to the video linked in this post!  This utility is software that comes with every EOS camera and allows you to be in front of and behind the camera at the same time by using your laptop as a means to view the image from and control your camera.  It works for both video and stills, and will allow you to create time-lapses as well.
