How do I apply for an SDK?

You must be a Registered User of the Developer Support Program. Registration is free with a valid business email address.

The SDK application form is available to you after you read and agree to the terms of the Canon Digital Camera SDK License Agreement. After agreeing to the terms and conditions, you will be required to fill out a request form with user information, company information, and an explanation of how you will use the SDK. Please note: public email domains such as and will not be acceptable.

Upon completion of the SDK Application form, it will be reviewed and you will be notified upon approval. If approved, you will be granted access to the SDK you requested. You can request multiple SDK’s if required. Once approved you will also be notified of updates as they become available.
