connect elph 360 wifi to mac

I can't seem to connect my new ELPH360HS to MAC. I can download photos to the Canon Gateway cloud site but not to my Mac. Followed instructions in manual but there must be some simple setting I'm missing.

Re: connect elph 360 wifi to mac

Hi Brothers,

 

Thank you for posting.

 

Because the Canon CameraWindow has not been updated for Mac El Capitan's wireless function, our cameras cannot communicate wirelessly with your computer. I regret the difficulty this causes.

 

Canon's software engineers are aware of this issue and are working on a solution. Unfortunately, we don't have an estimate for the arrival of the updated CameraWindow. I regret the difficulty this causes.

 

Until the software has been updated, I recommend transferring your images via USB, as described, beginning on page 126 of the PowerShot ELPH 360 HS Camera User Guide.

 

Your camera accepts a USB to mini-B cable.

I have been a Canon owner since 1968. The reason I bought the ELPH360 for my wife was because of the WiFi feature. I have owned the camera less than a month and I am unable to return it to the camera shop since their return policy is good for 15 days. I would have bought another model. Wish Canon would have labeled the box or informed the shop about the ELPH360 WiFi shortcoming.

Re: connect elph 360 wifi to mac

I recently bought my first, and apparently my last, Canon camera last year. Works great, but the lack of wifi compatibility on the Mac is utterly ridiculous.

 

The original post was in August, 2016. It is now a couple of weeks shy of six months later, and there is still no working software for this. 

 

Get it together. You're losing customers.

Re: connect elph 360 wifi to mac

Last night, just for kicks, I tried to connect my camera via WiFi on a laptop using Windows 10. That was a no-go as well.

 

I'm going to try to connect later this week using my girlfriend's laptop. She's still on Windows 8.

Hi Austincameraguy,

 

Thank you for posting.

 

Your camera is compatible with the Image Sync process, and that's the method that I recommend. For step-by-step instructions, please click here.

Richard, this might have been a good workaround. Unfortunately, the software download Image Transfer Utility does not work on my Mac.

 

I can get photos to upload to the Image Gateway all right, but to download them, I've got to do it one photo at a time.

 

Better than nothing, I guess. And at least I can upload a bunch at a time.

 

Thanks. I guess.

 

Mike
