Also here's an e-mail I sent to email@example.com. I encourage you to send e-mails to them too, this thread clearly doesn't get any attention from decision makers.
EOS Remote app is currently available only for iPhone and Android.
There is huge demand for a Windows Phone app, you are severely underestimating the customer market who buy an expensive Canon DSLR camera and use a Windows Phone.
See the forum thread for details:
By not investing in a Windows Phone app, Canon is:
* losing new customers
* losing existing customers
* creating negative PR for itself
* decreasing customer satisfaction
* missing out on positive PR it would have gotten from the cheering Windows Phone fans
In other words, Canon is harming its own business, losing money and customers.
I am planning to develop the Windows Phone app because Canon is missing a huge opportunity there. With a Windows Phone app, you can increase customer satisfaction, attract new customer base and gain free positive PR in the Windows circles.
I personally have over $10k invested in Canon products. That's not including my consulting work and purchases for my company. Thanks for the kick to the backside Kirill, I was looking at the C100 for my video work - but I'll certainly fire off an email and look elsewhere in the meantime.
Canon, don't do the Nikon to me, that's what made me jump ship 10 years ago.
I wrote an email to Canon and this was their response:
In response to your enquiry regarding the Camera Window software for a Windows 8 phone, we regret to inform you that the drivers and software for this operating system have not been developed at the moment.
Canon are currently working on development of these Camera Window software. Unfortunately, we do not have a release date of when this will be.
So maybe we'll get it sometime in the future.
Adding my support for this. Just got a 70D and would love the remote app on my Lumia 820. I find it really bad that Windows Phone doesn't get the attention it deserves.
Make sure it's available in the UK too
I too registered though I have been a Canon owner for several decades (yes back to the film days). Please make a Windows Phone 8 or 8.1 app for the many of us that use Canon gear. Sony has apps available. Not having one makes it appear you are unable to keep up. I'm sure that's not true, right?
