Re: Does the iApp Canon Connect Shoot RAW?

Thanks to Stephen I’ve managed to do some further reading, which explains that the SX60 can have its functions controlled by the Canon Live Shooting Software:




Here’s the process, which I’ve followed:




So, on opening the Canon Live I get this:






And taping the Camera Settings Button, I get this:





So, the Support pages which ratify/confirm that the SX60HS can have its Settings controlled by the Remote Live Shooting, this is contradicted by the warning message above.


Please advise.

Re: Does the iApp Canon Connect Shoot RAW?

I've received an email from Canon:


"We are afraid that RAW capture is not available during Live Shooting with the Camera Connect app. Therefore, the behaviour that you are experiencing is expected."


At the very least there is a need to update the website to confirm the restrictions of the WiFi feature set for shooting live and control of the SX60HS features, there aren't any. As to expected behaviour, I did follow the instructions, as per the WiFi setup for the SX60HS and was excited to think I could.


So, to conclude in using the WiFi Feature for the SX60HS:


1] Viewing JPEGS is good.


2] Can't view any RAWs.


3] There is no control of the SX60HS controls.


4] Anything shot within a Live Shooting session will result in:


  • A restricted "Program Mode" Capture
  • ISO restricted to 1000
  • Automatic White Balance
  • Inability to shoot RAW

I do hope this will be of help to others discovering the extent of the Live Shooting with these parameters. The very best solution would be for Canon to update the Canon Connect Software to allow the SX60 to make use of the feature-set whilst in a Live Shooting Session.
