Thanks for that. Now I understand why Canon gives everybody a run around on the lack of connectivity.
Can you not publish this in mainstream media ?
As long as we're being brutally honest, let's acknowledge that WiFi is not, nor ever was, a particularly good way to communicate with a camera.

Hi, I recently purchased an EOS 7D Mark ii with the added WiFi card. I installed Camera Connect and have successfully paired the camera with my iphone 6, and am able to see the camera photos on my phone. I am UNABLE, however to save any of the photos to my phone. It just continuously spins on my phone, and the camera shows a Busy..... message. Does anyone have a thought on how to fix? Very frustrated...thank you.

I have been able to get my 7D Mark II connected to my smartphone. Camera connect has been installed and everything is fine up to the point when I want to use remote shooting. The screen to use appears and all the camera settings are displayed but the screen is black and it keeps flashing busy the same with the camera-it says it is busy. I press the button to yake a picture and nothing happens. The scene I am trying to take a picture does not appear on the screen. It remains black and flashes busy. I can view images I have on my memory card but they are not images taken with remote shooting. What am I doing wrong. The camera is set to P and live view on the menu is enabled

My 5D MK IV connects every time to the Connect App however only about 10% of the time does a live view screen appear. I can always control the functions like record, iris, and shutter but the live view screen is usually BLACK.
iPhone 6s and iPad Air
Newest Version of Canon Connect app
MK IV Firmware 1.0.2
It defeats the purpose of having the remote shooting functionality if you can't see the live view.
Has anyone had this issue?
