I just updated from an iPhone6 to an iPhone14 and am unable to get a Blue Tooth connection between my camera and my new iPhone. All goes well initiating the pairing and the Camera Connect software sees that I am trying to pair with an SX70. But as soon as I select "SX70" which is the name of my camera, it immediately fails. So I have on the screen "Detect camera" and "Choose a camera for pairing" and then "SX70." Nothing happens until I select the SX70 and it says "Pairing failed SX70 "Use your smartphones Settings app to delete the Bluetooth pairing information and then perform pairing again. Close" I've tried this many, many times and it still fails. Please help. I need to get the GPS data from my phone onto the metadata for my camera photos. Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your camera does support Camera Connect, DPP Express and image.canon apps.
What FW version are you using? As of this writing v1.1.1 is the latest. Consider upgrading to it if you are running an earlier release.
Then see this:

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, the Camera said it was pairing but the phone would just disconnect as soon as I touched the name of the camera. I finally figured it out. I needed to delete the SX70 entry on my phone's Blue Tooth and start over. Apparently this entry was left over from when I transferred all my settings from the old phone to the new. Anyway, that fixed it and I now have a nice Blue Tooth connection. Many thanks.
