I have a canon Powershot sx720 and am using the Canon Camera Connect via NFC/Wifi to transfer pictures to my Galaxy S8. When transferring pictures they end up on the S8's internal storage and not the external SD card.
How can I change the location where the pictures are stored on the camera to the external storage. It appers the default location is where the Canon Camera Connect application is loaded on the smartphone.
I have this exact problem and it is driving me crazy - does anyone know how to fix this?
I have an EOS 80D and a Samsung Tab A 10.1. Using Canon Camera Connect it transfers my photos to my tablet but always to the internal memory - not the large SD card I purchased for this purpose. I cant find any way to change the storage path.
Hello BHC and BGMURRAY,
There is no method to change the file path location within the Camera Connect Application. We regret any inconvenience that this may cause you.
This problem is now two years old and there are complaints even older than that and the latest version of the app still can't save files to SD cards.
In many cases (where the phone/tablet has limited memory) this makes the app essentially useless, and forces people to use 3rd party paid apps like "Camera Connect & Control" instead.
The Nikon app doesn't have this problem.
Canon please pull your finger out and add this feature to the next version of the app.
