Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Let me first say this is my first Canon, and my second day of using it. Not very impressed so far after reading this, as well as experiencing problems connecting to my MacBook as well.

 

im having the same problem as all of you, only I just recently bought a G9X and having issues as stated above. Connected to my iPad no problem, as well as my iPhone. I have no luck connecting to MacBook however.

 

first of all, I'm pretty sure that I've read somewhere in Canons website that connecting to CameraWindow on Mac requires 10.9 or later. If I didn't already waste my entire morning (2 1/2 hours to be exact) I would trace back and find the link the states this. 

 

Second of all, if it was clearly stated on the website that I read that my version of OS X wouldn't connect with my G9X, I wouldn't have wasted my entire morning, and I would be about 300% less aggravated then I currently am. PS I'm running El Captain 10.11.6. 

 

Third of all, I'm very happy to say that I recently purchased this, as I can easily return it. I agree with everyone above, that this is an absolute disgrace to the community of Canon users that this matter hasn't been resolved in over 6 months, when it was very clear that Canon was aware of the problem, yet refused to address it. That is a clear sign of terrible customer service....it's not like I'm trying to upload images onto my Atari....were trying to connect our camera on a system that's only a mere two years old.

 

this camera is great, takes great photos, all in a package that fits in your pocket. However, I cannot say the same for the lack of service.

 

end rant. Thanks for ruining my morning, Canon

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Apr 4, 2017 loaded the latest version of Camera Window ... WiFi still not working w/ Mac OS Sierra. Canon still has a note on the download page for Camera Window ... " (Wi-Fi connection is not available with 10.11/10.12.) ". Come on Canon, it can't be that hard to fix.

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

It's July, 2017...Apple has a new Operating System coming out and Canon still haven't got the G7X working with Sierra. Great, time to move to Sony, I think.

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Any news on this issue? The provided links to the workaround "Image Sync" do not even work any more...

UPDATE!!

 

Now Sierra and High Sierra are incompatible with your Canon Powershot. Wifi won't work, neither does the USB cable. The only way I can get images off now is by using an external SD card reader, or taking them off to my phone. It's pathetic, annoying and I'll never buy Canon ever again.

 

[EDIT] Oh and the links to ImageSync no longer work (as said above), so you're [...] out of luck completely now.

It looks like their software issues aren't just for PowerShot users either. They don't care about any of their customers, check out the EOS software:

 

Poor software

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Hi Richard,

 

Can you please let me know if there's any way of connecting my G7X to my MacBook Pro (either though WiFi, Cable, Blootooth ..anything!) that will allow me to the camera display onto my laptop screen. So that I can see how the shot looks on the big screen?

 

I really, really hope there is a way!

 

Thank you so much, I look forward to your answer!

 

Best Regards,

 

Mihaela

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

So what you’re saying is, the only way to make this work while I’m out taking photos is to upload them to a remote service and then download them!?

That’s abysmal, especially if I have to tether through my phone while I’m out and about.
