Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Hello my system specs are macbook pro early 2015 on sierra 10.12.3, I use a talktalk router with wpa2 but my camera connects to router fine so i dont see it as a problem. I have a pixama 7550 which works over wifi no problems just the camera. Please could you post a video of canon connecting to the macbook pro with the steps you use to get this to work.
Thankyou.

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

It unfortuantate that Canon seesm to think offering ImageSync as an alternative is a solution rather than fixing CameraWindow. I think this says something poor about the culture and its relationship with its buyers.

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Hiya I dont think they are ignoring it, it seems to me as if its obsolete hardware thats just not compatible with newer wifi protocols. Don't quote is on it though but lets be honest if software engineers at canon couldn't code a little bit of wifi software by now they are in the wrong job.

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

It's March 3, two months after your post and I still have this same problem. 

 

G7 x mark ii does not connect to CameraWindow 8. The camera detects the Macs on my wifi network and after I select any one of them it says it is connecting but then shows "connection failed". The Image Capture utility on the Mac does show the G7x while the camera is trying to connect.

 

The Apple webisite says Mac OS 10.2 Sierra supports this camera. If so, then the problem is on the Canon side. There is no problem connecting to an iPhone or an iPad using the CanonConnect app.

 

Can someone from Canon support please clarify whether MacOS Sierra is supported or when it will be supported.

 

Thanks

Hi Numa1,

 

Thank you for posting.

 

For the wireless transfer of images to computers using Mac El Capitan and Mac Sierra operating systems, you must use a camera that supports Image Sync and you must use the Image Sync transfer method. For step-by-step instructions, please click here.

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Just bought my G7X II 3 days ago. I connected with my iPhone fairly easily, but for the life of me couldn't figure out why I kept seeing "Searching" when I tried to connect my Macbook Air, running El Capitan 10.11.6. Seriously, I had do a Google search to find this forum and discover Canon doesn't support it? Not cool, Canon! The ONLY saving grace is that it's so quick and easy to pull the card from the camera and plug it into my Mac to upload photos. I'm much more likely to want to use the WiFi connection with my phone. BUT, how ironic that I've paid for an up-to-date camera that actually isn't!

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Hello,

 

I wonder if anybody knows if it is possible to conect a tablet or my MacBook Pro (Sierra) to my G7X so I can use it as a monitor when shooting video. Tethering I believe is called. Not sure.

 

I really hope it works! Its a great lil camera so I am not keen to get a DSLR

 

I look forward to your answers!

 

Thank you very much!

Re: Connecting my G7X to my Mac via WiFi

Hi, I have had my G7x connected to my Samsung for a while now, worked great. Then, today I tried to connect a tablet to it. Got same problem, but then I found out somewhere on Internet that you need to Reset WiFi settings. I have done that and worked! Hope that will work for you as well! Seams Like you cant have 2 dif devices there, just one at a time so you may need to start the whole connecting procedure again for your Mac. Hope it works for u!

Hi Mihaela,

 

Thank you for posting.

 

Your PowerShot G7 X can only display images on your television when the camera is in the playback mode.
