M5 Connectivity and Control?

The M5 manual implies that the camera cannot be controlled remotely by EOS Utility (EU). The manual says:

EOS Utility

-- Import images and change camera settings


There is no mention of camera control from a "full" computer. I find that odd, given that the camera is fully controllable via WiFi with iOS. As someone said in another thread, there is an app for Mac OS and iOS called Cascable Transfer that can download photos from the M5 (and many other cameras of varying brands) to the Mac as well as to iOS. It can download RAW files to iOS, which I con't think that Canon Camera Connect can do. Otherwise it doesn't add much to what the Canon app does.


My M5 does everything it should do when connected to iOS on WiFi, but it cannot do anything under DPP/EU. If connected via USB it can download photos.
