This Canon App is probably one of the worst pieces of software I've ever used. I've tried for hours, using both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to connect and cannot get it to work.
I have a Rebel EOS SL2 camera and a Samsung J7 Android phone. I have a fresh version of the camera app.
When I enter the SSID Wi-Fi password, it says "Waiting to connect" on the camera (see image below) and the phone app just says "when done, return to this page." (see images below) It seems like it's connected, I return to the page, but there is no "Next" button. I'm just stuck.
Enclosed are screenshots from my phone and the app.
I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the camera app. I have tried resetting the camera's wi-fi settings, etc.
Please help, the instructions and troubleshooting provided by Canon are just awful. I have also scoured this discussion board and don't see anything helpful.
I'm just showing the Wi-Fi example, not Bluetooth. And passwords aren't the issue with Wi-Fi. It connected for me ONE TIME randomly, but never again.
My understanding is that you need to use Wi-Fi in order to control the camera remotely, right?
You can control the camera with either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The primary difference is range, or distance to the host device.
