App Reviews

  • Very Useful, but don’t expect perfection

    By Quicknick7
    This app is great if you don’t expect great things out of it. It is great at allowing you to quickly access and manage your photos through connecting with the camera. This feature helps me frequently when I want to quickly access the pictures I took at that time. You can download your pictures, even raw pictures, to your device and do with them as you please. I found that videos are typically unable to be played in this app which can be upsetting, but remember, keep expectations modest. Lastly, the live view photo feature is useful and can be nice as a remote trigger for tripod use and pictures that require stability. Not great for fast tracking or professional use though as it is finicky and not perfect in some ways. Overall, the app is great for light to moderate use and for those who like to immediately or conveniently access their pictures on their device without needing to take out the card from the camera. I’d give the app 4 to 4.5 stars, but it’s current ratings aren’t accurate so 5 it is. :)
  • Could use a bit of help on the “Easy connection guide “

    By HoBo cycling
    Was able to make it work on a G1 X Mark II but it’s not intuitive. First go to your iPhones WiFi settings. Then press the playback button on the camera. Next press the WiFi button on the camera. Refresh your WiFi by pulling down on the iPhone screen. The cameras SSID name/number should show up as a WiFi point. Choose it. Wait for the blue check mark to the left to make sure you are connected to the camera. Launch the app. The camera screen should change and show a iPhone image outline. Hopefully it’s connected and the option to select photos will now be available plus the other attributes of the app. Good luck! *quick update : when connecting you want your phone open to WiFi settings. I started the camera after this recent update and had no problems. Was able to remote shoot using the app too. All good at this point.
  • Why did you have to take away the EXIF?

    By Red's mew
    I have been using this app for quite a while now, and I have done nothing but praise its performance. It isn’t the most perfect thing in the world, but it’s not meant to be. It’s fast enough, can download photos in full resolution and has no problems with connectivity. But then, about 2 weeks ago, when the last patch was released, a few changes were implemented. I’m sure it helped some other people in some ways, but in doing so, RAW files could no longer be downloaded and EXIF data was no longer available. Now RAW can be a struggle enough, but it didn’t affect me all that much. But taking away EXIF? Really? Now I can view my own smart phone’s ISO, Aperture and shutter speed, alongside its focal length, but I can’t do the same for my professional-level camera? I am thoroughly disappointed. I will happily change my review if this is ever amended, but in the mean time, I’ll be looking for another service.
  • Terrible

    By jp_camera
    Unbelievably terrible app. IPad app simply doesn't work - period. Has anyone at Canon actually tried to use this app with the iPad? The software on Canon cameras is excellent - why not asking that team to develop this interface? As a user, I am not looking for too much at first. Stable, wireless picture downloads and viewing would be great. Why is this app even distributed with the Canon name on it? Canon - are you listening? Update: OK, I was eventually able to get the iPad to work with the camera. I had used the app on the iPhone with some success recently. To make this work on the iPad, I needed to go to the camera wireless menu and delete the iPhone and add the iPad as a connection point. After some fiddling around, it did connect and work for downloading images on the iPad. OK ... up from 1 to 2 stars. Not intuitive but it did work.
  • Works pretty well, for me at least

    By Ris1306
    Personally, this worker pretty well for my Rebel T6i and my iPhone 7. It makes sending pictures from my camera to my phone really easy for sharing and posting on social media. It isn't a replacement for backing up your photos on a computer, but it honestly is really nice having all your photos at your fingertips. It took some time to get used to, and every time you use it there is some back and fourth involved with connecting, but it doesn't take forever, and actually transferring the photos doesn't take too long, provided you aren't sending over like thousands.
  • No way to save videos?

    By mumme females
    This is the easiest way to move photos directly from your camera to your phone so I can’t complain too much, but the app lacks a few features that would make it more user compatible. Also the process of connecting your camera with the app is very time consuming and stressful to figure out. (once you figure out how to do the process it’s easy from there) My #1 complaint with this app is that there is no way to save videos to my phone from the camera. I would give this app a 4/5 stars if it weren’t for this disappointment. It would be very pleasing for me to see that there’s a way to export videos. PLEASE include a way to efficiently get videos from my camera in the next update!
  • Disappointing

    By De Vanna 7654
    EDIT: note the app keeps crashing and worse, makes my camera freeze, too. So I have to remove the battery from my camera in order to get it to unfreeze, so I can turn it off. Great. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I was already bummed that there is simply no option to have a remote with my Powershot G7x. Now I learn that my absolute only option is this awful app. Connecting my phone to the camera takes several minutes each time. Once connected, there's a long delay between the camera feed capturing what's actually in front of it. I had this app once years ago, and I'm surprised it hasn't been improved in all that time. The DJI app for Osmo stabilizers is amazing, intuitive, and quick to connect. Wish THIS app was like that, especially because I need to use this remote function a lot more than I do my Osmo. Sigh.
  • Very useful app for iPad

    By Starscan
    I was shocked to read so many negative reviews on this app. I’ve been using it for several years with my 6D. I use it to review the shots as the screen is much larger; enabling better critical decisions about which images to keep and which to delete. I like to delete any bad images right away otherwise the number get out of hand. This August I used the iPad as my remote for taking shots of the solar eclipse. It was much more comfortable shooting in the shade than standing in the sun the whole time. I admit the setup is cumbersome. Often I hesitate to switch from using the iPad to my iPhone because of the cumbersome steps required.
  • Great app, but get rid of the Bluetooth notice!

    By Filmeng
    I love this app; it does everything I need it to. Overall, it’s efficient, full-featured, and intuitive to use. I appreciate the thought that went into developing it. However, it’s SO annoying that when I open the app, I have to dismiss the Bluetooth notice. Every. Single. Time. None of my accessories are Bluetooth capable, so the only thing that reminder accomplishes is to delay me from using the app. That’s bad design! Seriously, Canon, after opening the app the first thousand times, we get the point that we should enable Bluetooth to connect to our cameras. So stop forcing us to dismiss that useless notice, Canon!!!
  • No-go for Powershot G16

    By SecondChanceNance
    A few weeks ago I thought I had this sorted out, after some experimentation I got the camera to connect to my iPhone 6 consistently through my home WiFi, or camera WiFi WITH password. Otherwise the camera would disconnect after a couple of seconds... But now, it will not connect at all. I’ve tried every conceivable order of resetting the WiFi on either/both devices, restarting either/both devices, Home WiFi, camera WiFi, password, no password... the camera finds my home WiFi but cannot see the app, and my phone finds the camera WiFi but still no connection. The WiFi feature on this Canon is the only difference from the earlier model, and I paid a premium for it. Please Canon, fix this!!!
