Re: connect elph 360 wifi to mac

Hold the door ...

 

I am able to download a bunch at a time. Yeah, this'll work. Frankly, USB is faster, but this will work great when I'm on the road.

 

Okay, Canon. I'll stay with you.

 

Cheers.

Re: connect elph 360 wifi to mac

Just to be clear:

 

• I cannot connect my Elph 360 to my Mac -- or my Windows laptop running Windows 10 -- via WiFi.

 

• I can, however, connect to the cloud via WiFi and upload to Canon Image Gateway, Facebook, Twitter, and even Canon's Image Sync.

 

• The Image Transfer Utility software will not work on my Mac (didn't try it on my Windows laptop) so I can't automatically download to my computer. But I can go to the Canon Image Gateway website and download from the photo gallery. In some ways this might even be better since I can cherry pick the ones I want.

 

Unless I'm on the road, I'm inclined to upload via USB, but the ability to post to Facebook and Twitter from the camera is very cool.

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

Hi Austincameraguy,

 

You should be able to connect to your Windows 10 machine. What happens when you try this connection (errors, etc)?

Just bought the ELPH 360 HS. No luck connecting to a mac. I can join the network fine, and I can see my mac, but when I run the the CameraWindow app on the mac, it just says no camera found. 

 

How can they release software that just doesn't work? Do they not test it at all? 

 

Running macOS 10.13.3

If you look at how it's launching the actual app in terminal, there are errors:

 

/Applications/Canon\ Utilities/CameraWindow/CameraWindow.app/Contents/MacOS/CameraWindow ; exit;

/BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppleFSCompression/AppleFSCompression-96.30.2/Common/ChunkCompression.cpp:50: Error: unsupported compressor 8

Common Cannon. Get with it. How are you releasing software that fails on launch. Very unimpressed. :-(

Get this, canon support replies with

 

"Your Canon camera wifi function is not compatible with latest versions of the MAC OS 10.11 10.12 and 10.13."

 

Basically, you have to be running an outdated old useless version of macOS. Nice job canon. How about releasing software that works with recent versions of operating systems.

The canon camera window app in the -add a device folder- of your computer maybe not be a complete software  ( needs driver ) thats why when you open it - it will not work - and it says " no camera found " 

 

Search how to download manually the camera window app. Compatibility issues is rarely the cause.

I've tried running every version I can find. Simply does not work. Dissapointing for sure.
