The ImageSync process over the internet with the necessary up- and downloading of many tons of images seems to be a rather far-fetched solution to a banal software compatability problem.
While Canon does not solve the Mac-compatability problem Canon camera users will have to put up with the old low tech camera-to-computer via USB-cable solution.

Hello Tim! Why are you, as a Canon product expert, trying in your answer to distract from the simple fact that Canon Wireless CameraWindow is not compatible with the current mac os (Sierra 10.12) as is confirmed by Canon's own compatibility chart? https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/

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.

The Canon CameraWindow DC 8.10.10b updade from today 2/22/17 is STILL NOT COMPATIBLE WITH macOS Sierra 10.12
In the Canon release notes it says: „Wi-Fi connection is not available with 10.11/10.12“
Why is Canon ignoring the WiFi compatibility issue with macOS Sierra 10.12?

Facts on the Canon CameraWindow update history for macOS Sierra 10.12:
1. Canon states in its own release notes for the new (today) CameraWindow DC 8.10.10b update: „Wi-Fi connection is not available with 10.11/10.12“ (quote).
2. Canon own web site list all recent CameraWindow software updates for macOS Sierra 10.12 (versions 8.10.5a/8.10.5b/8.10.7) as incompatible: „Unable to connect with USB and Wi-Fi“ (quote). https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/
3. Canon CameraWindow release notes do not mention any kind of „obsolete hardware“ in connection with CameraWindow’s macOS Sierra 10.12-incompatability.
4. macOS Sierra 10.12 does not run on „obsolete hardware“. Older Mac-computers only run on older versions of Mac OS X.
5. Canon Wireless CameraWindow software has been incompatible with macOS Sierra 10.12 since the operating system was released in September 2016.
From these facts I can only conclude that Canon is constantly ignoring the WiFi compatibility issue with macOS Sierra 10.12. To quote contributor PhilipNB: „I think this says something poor about the [company] culture [of Canon] and its relationship with its buyers.“

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.
