I have an SX280 HS which I bought specifically for its WiFi features and the great Camera Window app. As you may or may not know, it is completely and utterly incompatible with the now standard Android 5.0 Lollipop. Although the software development kit has been available since October 2014, there has been no update from Canon and no communication from Canon regarding an update.
Considering that I bought this camera for its compatibility with my smartphone, I am understandably annoyed at Canon's incompetence in something as simple as up-to-date software. Does anyone have an idea of when an update will actually come? I have contacted Canon but received only a very generic, cut-and-paste reply which tells you absolutely nothing. I'd be less bothered if there was some kind of ETA to look forward to but at this point I might just look to another manufacturer instead.
Cheers for any information you might have.
