In the end I bought a cable that fixed my frustration and anger in seconds. Why is it everything is made so over complicated. I was told in stiore there is a constant stream of peole buying leads for cameras and printers.

I would like to point out that in other threads in this forum Canon product experts have confirmed that Canon cameras do not connect wirelessly to Mac computers running on macOS 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra because Canon Wireless CameraWindow application is not compatible with macOS.
Canon states in its own software release notes for the latest CameraWindow DC 8.10.10b update: „Wi-Fi connection is not available with 10.11/10.12“ (quote).
The Canon web site also list all recent CameraWindow software updates for macOS 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra as incompatible! https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/self-help-center/canon-software)
Canon Wireless CameraWindow software has been incompatible with macOS since macOS 10.11 El Capitan was released in 2015.
Canon is wasting the time of thousands of its customers as Canon does not make it clear at the time of camera purchase that Canon cameras do not support wireless connection to Mac-computers.
There is still no clarification from Canon about when OS El 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra will be supported, - or if the company will ever support mac OS in this matter.
You claim that Canon does not makeit clear "at the time of camera purchase...." Unless you bought your camera directly from Canon, then Canon was not involved "at the time of camera purchase."
And, if you bought your camera from Canon, there is a disclaimer. You can read it at the above link. Please, tell the class what it says about MacOS. Here's a hint. It makes no mention of MacOS.

That was THE answer to the question! Nobody would think that "Media streaming options" is the software to get a Canon camera connected to your PC unless you would know this. I was looking for Canon software everywhere. Thanks.
