Doesn’t work 1/5
Thanks, Canon. Your old app worked great with my G16. You forced me to use this app AND NOW IT WILL NOT WORK. Why force us onto this piece of crap?
Doesn’t support RAW over WiFi for no reason whatsoever and coverts them on the fly to JPG. It’s a toy, not a tool.
Needs updates 1/5
this app should let you VIEW THE FOCUS FROM THE APP WHILE FILMING ON ANY CANON CAMERA !! for example , the t6 doesn’t have a flip screen . we should be able to use the app as a monitor !
Does what you need it to. 4/5
Using this app with an iPhone 6 and my rebel t6 and I’ve had no issues. I can use the app as a remote when shooting with the shutter speed at bulb for night photography which is nice. Moving photos to my phone is very easy. Takes a little while to connect the devices though, also I have not found a light meter in the app if there is one. No major issues.

The app is fine, I’m not expecting much really. It does disconnect a lot, but it’s easy to fix. The only thing I truly wish I could do is get videos from my camera to my phone in this app. I’ve been using this for a year and a half and I’ve always wished for it.
Still can’t connect 1/5
After all these years, the app is still as glitchy as ever—it would disconnect the moment you successfully connect. It can’t even hold its connection once in it. It’s astonishing how Canon is still years away in this technology. I have an almost 3-Yr old Lumix Lx100 and camera connect is still flawless.
Can’t get it work on iPad Pro 1/5
This app and the whole Wifi interface for the camera is a pain to begin with, but now it doesn’t even appear to actually work with the iPad. Crazy.
Rebel T6 1/5
By D.o.b 84
Won’t connect with my Rebel T6.
Waste of time 1/5
This app literally never connects. It connected the very first time and ever since then it hasn’t worked. What’s the point of having the app if it doesn’t even work!?!?
By out of luck in CT
On iPhone 6 - this app works maybe 1 out of 10 tries. The rest of the time it comes on and then immediately or soon thereafter just shuts off. I’ve tried turning phone off then on again and this has worked a couple of times but getting this app to function reliably is completely hit or miss. Garbage.
ALL PHOTOS GOT DELETED 1/5
because of this app literally all my photos that I took for my JOB got deleted off my SD card and I have no way of recovering them. Thanks to this app I will not be getting paid
Love it 5/5
By Hi I'm Kionna
I like it but why not let this app transfer videos as well, not only to our phones but to our laptops too.
Beware: Deletes Your Photos 1/5
Words cannot describe how upset I am. After switching phones on the app through the WiFi connection, all my photos were deleted. 1000 photos of memories all gone... do not use this app.
Select All 2/5
By Novice birder 789
How does this app not have a “select all” feature!? Very tedious to individually select each photo to upload to phone!
Camera Disconnects from App 3/5
I have been using this app for a while now and everything was working great until I got a new phone(IPhone 7). I am able to see the pics on my phone for about 10 seconds until it disconnects. Has anyone been having this issue? I did some research and people on the web were saying that is due to the app not supporting the new software? I have also downloaded the app again, but no luck.
Worst App Ever 1/5
Canon should really be ashamed of themselves, I can’t even tell you how much this app does not work. It either times out when you’re trying to transfer images or it flat out does let you connect, an error called error 11? Terrible terrible app, they need to start from scratch from this one. What makes it worse is that this is the only way to get the photos off of your camera. Really sad
Needs improvement 3/5
By Camera appertizer
Drops connection with Camera intermittently. Loaded this app on the iPad and it will not connect with Camera. Doesn’t make sense that the app would load on the iPad and the app would not connect to the camera from the iPad.
Good but 3/5
By Mad customer69
Wish I could upload videos
This App is Non-functional 1/5
Download, open/crash... open/connect/crash. Open/crash. Not sure how anyone can indicate the app works, it does nothing but crash on both iPhone and iPad.
No longer functional 1/5
Used to work with iPhone, but never could get the app to connect with iPad. I was reasonably happy with functionality (hit and miss connectivity) with iPhone and Canon 5D Mark IV. However, since firmware upgrade the app refuses to recognize the equipment. I can see the Canon on iPhone and can see the the registered set on Canon, but there is no handshaking. Too many hours of trying to fuss with it anymore. I upgraded to V1.1.2 of the firmware, which is latest as of April 2018.
Recent update failed to download 3/5
As of the last update, I am no longer able to utilize camera connect on my iPhone 4. I understand it's an old phone, but I would like to use my camera with my phone just the same. Please advise.
Camera connect update appears to be working again on my iPhone 4
Doesn't do the thing I need it to do 3/5
I love this app/camera for taking photos from across the room, but I bought this camera to remote shoot video and I cannot begin shooting a video from this app. I would give anything to be able to set up my shot and begin recording within the app. Right now I'm having to set up my frame in app, turn off the wireless, boot up the camera and hit record and hope I'm in proper focus as I find my way back to my mark. Please add this function!
Just doesn’t work. Nope. Tried everything 1/5
I am not a nube. I have no problem connecting my phone to my wife’s Olympus camera. However, I’ve tried everything trick and setting with my M3 and no dice. I’ve tried connecting phone to camera AP. And it does connect. However app doesn’t seem to realise this. I’ve also connected the opposite direction, having the camera connect to my phone via hot spot. Same result. It’s a nice idea but worthless if the app refuses to play ball.
Why So Few Functions? 2/5
Don’t understand why I have to buy a $300 CamRanger to get all the usual tethering functions via WiFi on my (brand new latest model) Canon DSLR. Can’t Canon program in the same functions as a third party? Obviously not a priority for them.
As a real estate photographer, hauling a laptop to every room would be ridiculous but it would be great to have all those tethered functions. Only wirelessly, on a tablet. Sadly, this app doesn’t come close to that. Even just a “saved settings” list would be nice...
Cannot Transfer RAW Images 1/5
By jared platt
It is amazing that this app cannot allow the transfer of RAW images yet. Every app on my phone and iPad can work on raw images and yet Canon has not seen the need to allow us to transfer our raw images through the app. So I end up connecting my iPhone or iPad to my camera with a cord to get an image off the camera to the phone. That just makes no sense that Canon would have a raw image on the camera and yet transfer a jpg through their app. Not very helpful.
Where are my videos 4/5
The app is great for just pictures but I can’t play the videos on the app. Why cannon why. I was looking forward to putting my blogs on there. Please make it so videos can be saved and played back. It would greatly improve the app.
REALLY!!! Why don’t you export RAW files????? 1/5
I would give this app 5stars if only you would allow raw file exports! This makes no sense. I recently bought a canon with the intent of possibly leaving the Nikon stable... However, Nikon unlike canon does allow raw file exports in their app which is extremely important if you are even remotely serious about photography & editing! I may have to send this Canon camera back as that is a definite deal breaker!
Word of advice CANON: “RAW export is MANDATORY not optional to be neglected.”
The app itself is pretty nice and I like that I’m able to save images easily to my phone.. but you can’t save videos?
App won’t open 1/5
By Pages Terrible
Every time I try to open the app it immediately shuts down. I’ve restarted my phone and it is up to date and I have deleted and reinstalled the app. It doesn’t work. 100% disappointed.
What the heck? 1/5
Canon, dear Canon... What is this?
I really want to love this... but it's terrible. You'd think with the stupid gps-marking and other stuff in our cameras that nobody uses, you'd develop and work on the thing that would. We're obviously all on the internet, and an easy way to be able to connect to our phones, and be able to easily share images would be nice.
PLEASE. FIX. THIS. APP.
Needs a lot of improvement 2/5
Not user friendly, it needs to be more seamless.
Works, but not iphone x friendly 3/5
Most of the features work, but not well on the iphone x. Alot of the functionality is towards the bottom of the screen, which interferes with the iphone’s native gestures
This should not be that difficult. Will not connect to my phone
Good app 5/5
Haven't had any problems, app works great, very useful
Not usable anymore 1/5
By Myla W
This app was amazing when I first got it, but since then my camera will now connect for a few seconds and when I go to download the photos, or take new photos I get a “Disconnected” error on my camera and have to keep reconnecting. Literally serves no purpose anymore. Can someone please fix this.
Horrible interface 1/5
The current app does not connect easily at all - it takes multiple tries before it finally reads your smartphone (I’m on iPhone 7). I can establishing wifi connection between phone and camera but after that it rarely reads the camera and when it does, the connection disconnects quickly making any transfer of images impossible. When I first bought my PowerShot SX and download the app two years ago, the interface worked fine and was reliable. Now that the new app launched, it is extremely difficult and not user friendly. An epic failure for Cannon.
Please add histogram and AF-ON button for video 3/5
I’m looking to use this app while shooting video. Unfortunately, it’s missing functionality for the two most important factors: setting exposure and obtaining focus.
Please add the ability to view histograms on the app so we can properly set exposure. Also, please add a AF-ON button so we can obtain focus when AF servo is not an option for a particular shot.
Impossible to figure out 1/5
Will no longer connect to a T6i. It used to work, but is now to complicated to figure out.
Terrible app 1/5
More often than not the app will not even open for me. I have had nothing but problems since downloading it. Wish I could give it less than 1 star. Too many bugs. This app needs LOTS of work.
Can’t connect 1/5
Can’t connect to my EOS T6 Rebel 😡😡😡
Terrible. Only worked once. 1/5
This app is very terrible and only worked once for me. It says its connected to the wifi but it isn't connected to the camera. I restarted everything and all but it all still doesn't work. :(
so i started using this when i just got my camera and it worked fine but i deleted from my phone and downloaded it again and now it’s not wanting to connect to my phone anymore or work like it use to. helppp!!
No option to download movies? Your camera takes them? Thanks
I keep hoping it will connect and spend hours making sure my settings are correct.
They coincide with directions, but will not connect. Yes my camera is supported
The app works wonderful when it comes to down loading pictures but video. It’s impossible. I have the canon rebel t6. I don’t know if it’s the model. But why have a video setting if it won’t download videos? I’m very annoyed.
Needs RAW support 3/5
Overall the app works pretty well for me. I wish my 80d could tell when the app is connected and not go to sleep -- it's hard to use the app to capture certain nature shots when you have to get up and turn the camera back on all the time or permanently change the sleep settings more permanently on the camera.
Also, the fact that you cannot save the raw files wirelessly is a big miss. There are other solutions out there that allow you to do this, it's unacceptable that it's not at least a configuration option for the user.
Terrible app. Why do you want access to my location and access to photos that I took on my iPhone, just to be able to import photos that I took on my Cannon?
Super disappointed that you guys think this is an acceptable interface and application. It’s horrible.
Better than nothing, but not Much 2/5
By John f tx
This app is a real disappointment. Given the expense and quality of EOS pro bodies and L lenses, this program is an embarrassment.
It doesn’t work very well, drops the connection a great deal, and is glacially slow. It doesn’t really let you do much control of the camera and is really more of a mid to low range consumer application than pro.
Most of us to shoot with these cameras Don’t shoot tethered, but this doesn’t even come close to what you would get in a consumer camera.
Works (kind of) but very limited and dated 1/5
This app basically has one job, which is to transfer images from the camera to another device via wifi but it can't transfer raw files.
It is 2018 and this looks like an app built ten years ago. It is ugly, not a lot of features, and a little confusing to use. It has one job and it can't even do that completely.
Can’t even find device? 1/5
Since new update I can’t even connect the camera to my phone anymore. Very disappointed.
