Camera Connect
Stay connected to your world with the Camera Connect App

Camera Connect App is your go to application when you want to wirelessly shoot and transfer photos via wi-fi to your favourite social media sharing platforms or mobile devices. It combines the original CameraWindow and EOS Remote applications.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Why does Canon Camera Connect need access to ‘photos’ on my mobile device?

    One of the main features of the app is to download images from your camera to your smartphone. In order to save the images, it must have access to your Photos app.

  • Why does Canon Camera Connect need to send me notifications?

    Notifications on your smartphone are used to send you information related directly to the functionality of the app.  It is not used as a mechanism to send you promotional material.

  • Why does Canon Camera Connect need access to my GPS location?

    If you’re using the Canon Camera Connect app with your PowerShot or IXUS camera, you have the ability to add GPS location information to your images from your smartphone.  The way this works is by enabling the ‘Location Information’ feature of the app.

  • Why does Canon Camera Connect need access to Bluetooth on my mobile device?

    Selected camera models use Bluetooth to establish a low energy ‘always on’ connection to your smartphone.  This makes it easier to quickly connect to your smartphone to download images, or remotely control your camera

  • How do I download images to my mobile device?

    Once you’ve established a connection between your smartphone and your camera, tap the ‘Images on camera’ button.  This will show thumbnails of all the images stored on your camera’s memory card.  You can download images individually, or select multiple images to download all at once.

  • How do I control the camera from my mobile device?

    Once you’ve established a connection between your smartphone and your camera, tap the ‘Remote live view shooting’ button.  This will show a real-time view of what your camera sees.  This is a great function for where you to use a tripod and a low shutter speed, thus avoiding camera shake.  It’s also a great option for where you need to mount the camera a few metres away from you.

  • What is the difference between the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections on my camera?

    Both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are wireless communications standards.  When both technologies are featured in a Canon camera, they will each be responsible for different things. Bluetooth is an ‘always on’ low-energy connection, which is used for operations which don’t require much power, and to simplify the wireless connection process.  For more data intensive operations – such as downloading images, and Remote Live View - the app seamlessly switches to a Wi-Fi connection. 

  • How do I connect more than one camera to my smartphone?

    Although only one smartphone can be connected to your camera at a time, you can have up 3 mobile devices stored in memory. Look for the ‘Set’ option in the wireless settings menu of your camera.

  • I’m having issues establishing a wireless connection – what do I do?

    If you’ve followed the instructions in the video, and you’re still having trouble connecting, we suggest you start all over again from scratch.  To do this, delete and reinstall the app on your smartphone, and also reset the camera’s wireless settings.  Look for the ‘Reset’ option in your camera’s wireless settings menu.

  • What features in Canon Camera Connect work with my camera model?

    Canon Camera Connect is an app that is compatible with dozens of past and present Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled cameras.  For this reason, there are some functions that are not compatible with all models. Refer to the compatibility information on the Canon Camera Connect app download page on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

  • What can I download to my smartphone through the Camera Connect app?

    You can download JPEG images and movies that were shot with your camera.

  • Can I reduce the file size of my images before downloading them?

    When you select the ‘Images on Camera’ option, you can choose to download files in their original size, or you can resize them to save space on your phone. The original files on your camera won’t be affected.
