Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

CANON! Are you aware of this forum??
If so, can you please answer our questions. Are you planing to release an app for WP. Or if you are not, please let us know that as well.

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

I'm adding my voice to those who registered just to leave a comment requesting Windows device development.

 

The reason I'm saying "device" instead of phone is because the Windows store now transcends the phones and extends to any device with store access.

 

This includes not only every Windows Phone but also the 100 million PC's that have downloaded Windows 10 as their OS.

 

Full disclosure I have an iPhone and have used the TWO apps available in the Apple store. They are clean, convenient, and intuitive for Photographers on the go. UNfortunately the screen on iphones is hardly larger than the screen on my 6D.

 

If I had the choice which would I use? Apple products or Windows? I have a Surface pro 2 and Windows 10 across 4 other devices. I would use my Win10 devices. My Surface pro is the perfect mobile companion for screen size, portability, computing power and convenience for showcasing shots moments after they've been taken.

 

Please Canon, have someone look into the untapped market and viability of developing a single app that would be universally available for any and all Win10 devices and phones!

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

Adding my 2 cents for windows phone app.. 

Its being years waiting, i can't believe Canon is so ignorent that they can't develop basic app for top 3 platforms. Or release the apis so anyone else can develop. 

 

I have to use my android tablet for remote shooting / image viewing but I can't carry it always. Lumia 1020 has long replaced my go to camera so I need it to work with my camera too.

 

 

Like me most of canon users are not professional photographers and we like to use these small apps to save time. With this attitude canon is just waiting for a new startup to comeup with a new idea and eat their market share.

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

@canon: Devices have to be connected nowdays. You better give us a windows universial app, let our dslrs plug into our phones via usb-c/3.0. As sportsphotographers and journalists have to send images right after tge shoot, why not provide a lte connection... Your next 1dx ii better should be "connectable"... But i bet canin isnt even listening to this forum. Cannon you have to become the big player again and not let sony tear you down... Not now, but they will be, because they listen to its customers...

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

Agreed, I just got the 6D and would really like to be able to use my Nokia Lumia 1320 with Windows Phone 8 to control it.

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

HI antiwo, did you get anywhere with your project? I'm interested if you have got something to share!

 

(PS: I have seen your name in another post, you're Dutch/Belgian by any chance given it's a typical name there?)

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

That's awesome man!

 

Just tested it out on my Lumia 950XL and Canon EOS 70D. Everything worked out of the box!

 

Thanks!

 

I am a programmer myself and would be glad to help if you don't mind sharing the source!

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

This is indeed welcome news. Why is it that Canon does not provide software for the windows phone?
