6D & EOS Utility pairing

[ Edited ]

Has anyone had success with this? It seems to pair with the computer, but not with EOS Utility.


I get "Connection target not found" Then EOS Utility cycles in opening and closing.



I cleared all the settings twice and entered the key correctly.

In WFT Pairing Software, I connect, EOS Utility pops up, then "Camera Settings/ Remote Shooting" remains grayed out.

Also the Camera disappears within WFT Pairing Software.

Any  ideas?


Here is a screen capture of what I'm getting: [IMG][/IMG]

Hi Derekp13!


Thanks for posting.


I need some additional information from you to help determine what is causing this.


  1. What version of the Mac OS are you running?
  2. When was the last time you updated the Canon software?
  3. Are you connecting via Infrastructure or Ad-hoc?
  4. Are there any other devices connected to your computer wirelessly?

If this is a time sensitive-matter, additional support options are available at Contact Us.

Re: 6D & EOS Utility pairing

We got it figured out on Friday, the software that comes with the camera doesn't work with it.


Upgraded to's newest software and it all works good now. Doesn't seem to be great

for switching between computers, but for one its decent.
