any conflicts using WiFi controlled flash & simultaneously using WiFi for other function on R7?

I was just curious.

I just learned that the R7 does not have an internal flash, and the photographer is dependent on an external flash like a Speedlight.

All the Speedlights I've seen use WiFi to communicate with the camera.

Is there any conflict with using a WiFi controlled flash while simultaneously using WiFi for another function like remote shooting?

Like I said, I was just curious.

No speedlites use Wi-Fi for wireless flash. They use RF or optical communication for all wireless communication.

Demetrius,

Thank you.

It uses the same band as some WiFi, but it is a different protocol.

Yes I believe that Canon uses 2.4 GHz frequency. But there there not using Wi-Fi communication like the OP asked.
