Re: How can I transfer full size videos using Canon Camera Connect?

Pixel based display downscaling is a must from 1080 to 720 in 1:1 ratio display but can not tell the difference so as to saving space, smooth playback, and fit for mobile display.

The interface between two ends must be in harmony or else you can make your own way.

Re: How can I transfer full size videos using Canon Camera Connect?

I only use my ipad or iphone to download picture and video, and then it sync in icloud.
I have no PC.
So i want to download ORIGINAL version of the files
 
Please, add an option to do that, current setting is a complete nonsense!!

Buy a PC and a USB cable, and use it to upload to iPhoto Cloud.  Have you considered how long it would take to wirelessly transfer a video file?  It would probably take at least as long as the length of the video clip itself. 

 

These limitations are imposed by the Apple OS.  Photos cannot access the memory allocated to “Files”.  However, it is my understanding that the most recent Apple updates may allow for “Files” to be used as direct storage for media files. .

[ Edited ]

Your message about transferring fullsize videos without the infuriating cropping is over a year old so you've probably gotten over being frustrated with pointless restrictions and Canon forum admin stonewalling... BUT I was looking for a solution to the same problem, came to this thread, read your question and your patient follow-ups trying (and failing) to get through to useful info. I FEEL YOUR PAIN with the irrelevant 'answers'.

 

I'll never be buying a Canon product again.

 

If I find a solution to this video cropping baloney I'll post it onto this thread, on the off chance people are still looking for a way through. These Canons are not cheap, the hardware is decent, so it's beyond annoying when brainless unnecessary limits make obstacles where none need exist.

 

Happy holidays!

Re: How can I transfer full size videos using Canon Camera Connect?

Hi mertonfuton.  I just got myself a Canon G7X Mark II today, and found this post also looking for a solution to the same problem.  I fired up Cannon Camera Connect and firstly I found it frustrating that I had to connect to my camera's WiFi Access Point each time I wanted to connect and trasfer images.  Then I discovered all my videos were being downscaled to 720p, and my images downscaled to 2400 x 1600.  I even changed the camera WiFi setting to Image Resizing = NO (instead of "S2"?), but that made no difference.

 

My solution was to instead use the free "Canon iMAGE Gateway" service.  Once you register for this and update the camera WiFi service settings (to now have the iMAGE Gateway icon etc.), trasfering the original image & video files is now very easy!

 

I also installed the Canon iMAGE Gateway App on my iPad, which then receives the ORIGINAL images, and allows me to do a one-click download for them to be added to my iCloud photos to share with all my Apple devices (including the Mac destop).

 

I also added the ImageTransferUtility to my Mac, but that seems to be unecessary / a duplication, with the iPad / iPhone App pulling the original files into my Apple environment!

 

However, I also have a Windows 10 PC, and I noted the ImageTransferUtility can only be associated with one computer at a time. So, I just switched this over to teh WIndows PC.  Now I have my original files easily WiFi synced to both my Apple iCloud, and to my Wndows PC!  Nice. :-)

 

The only issue I've found with the ImageTransferUtility (so far), is that it would not trabsfer / sync the image files in RAW format. It will only do the JPEG files.  But I'm not overly concerned as the full sized JPEG format images are fine for my needs.

 

The other benefot of the ORIGINAL camera files being transferred (not resized), is that all the camera meta data is retained, and is also transferred into my Apple Photo library.  I'd noted this meta data was being lost when the images were bing resized by Canon Camera Connect!  So this problem is solved as well! :-)

 

PS. I think your bold font statement of "never buying a Canon product again", is a little excessive!

Personally, I have always liked Canon cameras.  This time around I bought the Powershot G7X Mark II as right now it is an exceptional value quality camera, while prices are being drastically reduced following the release of the Mark III model.

Getting the very well respected G7X Mark II model, reduced to a little over half the price of the new Mark III, was my bargain of the century! I only really need 1080p video, and I can live without an external mic socket! :-)
