I've request the Canon EOS SDK to see if it gave the possibility to develop a Windows Phone & Windows RT application that could replace the official EOS Remote app.
Unfortunately, the SDK does not support Windows Phone and Windows RT but only Windows 8 and MAC.
Furthermore, it seems it allows only direct connection through USB and not through Wifi.
The only application that can be developed is on Windows 8 (not RT) with USB connection...
I don't know how we can push Canon do to something for their Windows Phone & Windows RT customers...
Windows Phone is almost as popular as IOS now:
So, if you think IOS is worth supporting, why not support the OS having the phones with the best built-in cameras, which is therefore especially attractive for photographers? 😉
So basically, I can get more remote function from a $300.00 GoPro than I can for a $2,000.00 Canon? Well, that is a deal breaker for me, I'll just have to look at other brands and options. I was considering adding the 70D to my pair of XF105's. I can't find the app in the Windows store at all for my laptop to even look at and it won't work with video anyway so, no Canon DSLR for me. Thanks.
