Multiple Cameras with Connect app?


Is it possible to run 3 cameras with Connect App simultaneously? Or how hard is it to switch between 3 active cameras? Looking to do a 3 camera photo booth in a medical clinic (capturing both side profiles of a face and front on). Trying to make this as painless as possible on staff and have it all controlled by an iPad. I have remote triggers that can be used in conjunction with Camera Connect, but looking to have the 3 cameras send the photos back to the iPad with relative ease and not be too clunky. 



Hi, b_rad!

So that the Community can help you better, we need to know exactly which Canon camera models you're using. That, and any other details you'd like to give will help the Community better understand your issue!

If this is a time-sensitive matter, click HERE search our knowledge base or find additional support options HERE.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hey Danny,

It's more a proof of concept at this point, looking to see how much of a nuisance it will be to switch any 3 compatible wifi cameras (T7 or cheapest best bang for the buck) Cameras just need to have wifi and be able to be remotely triggered (with 3rd party transceivers).

Hi b_rad,

The Canon Camera Connect app can only be connected to one camera at a time. There isn't a way to simultaneously control multiple cameras through the app and have the files from all three cameras sent to the app.

It is possible to have multiple cameras fire at the same time using our Speedlites. You can put a Speedlite 600EX II-RT in the hot shoe of each camera, set one flash to be a transmitter and the others to be receivers, and set them all to linked shooting. With that kind of set up when you take a photo with the camera that has the transmitter flash in the hot shoe it will also fire the receiver cameras. The photos would be saved to the memory cards and would need to be transferred from each camera. You would be able to have use that Speedlite set up with an EOS Rebel T7.
