I need the program photorun.exe referenced but not found at umax.com

It is needed to convert photos taken on the Umax Photorun camera (in a *.dat file) to BMP files.

hi vickie forgive me if im wrong but wasnt the photorun series of camera shipped with a program called presto for downloading and saving the cameras images.or is it the camera drivers you are seeking.please try and add more details so we know exactly what you require and the operating system you are using it on.

That's what the UMAX (http://www.umax.com/company/press/index.jsp?yearPR=archives&monthPR=archives&rlse=photorun) website states.


PhotoRun is bundled with Presto! PhotoAlbum software, an easy and fun tool for users to manage, view and share photos electronically.

I wonder if that is/was an issue with the Windows 9X USB drivers. I remember a friend bought a new CANNON scanner. Which worked great, until you rebooted Windows. then you had to reinstall the drivers each time.
She gave me that scanner and I use it today under Slackware and OS X, it works fine.



From the UMAX website

PhotoRun ships with a 2MB card allowing 15 photos, but is also compatible with 4, 6, 8, 10 and15 MB CompactFlash memory cards allowing for up to 113 images to be stored. Users can select between two image sizes: 320 x 240 for standard image quality or 504 x 378 for high image quality.


It's an amazingly GOOD thing technology advances.
I just bought yet another point-n-click camera. 10 Megapixels, supports SDHC memory cards up to 8GB capacity. Resolution is 3678x2046. Can hold thousands of photos. Plus does Quicktime Video at 848x640 (16x9 ).

it sure is amazing,even more so the downward spiral in prices,i remember buying a kodak dc 40 the resolution was something less than a half megapixel and at over 700 i can now purchase a 12 megapixel digital slr for way less than that.where will it all end up i wonder.we have 8 megapixel here in the uk for around 75 point and shoot from good brand names as well.

Maybe one day in the near future, regular people will be shooting with something like the Hasselblad's H3D (http://www.hasselblad.com/products/h-system/h3d.aspx), a 39 Megapixel camera. Retails for a little over $31,000

Hi. Found this thread due to a google search. I too was not able to find them on the UMAX site, but it looks like it's because they didn't update thier links. By surfing the current UMAX site, I was able to find the driver file here.

ftp://67.66.169.205/dcam/dcam/drivers/

Good luck.
