Re: Problems with Camera Connect App

I wanted it mostly to take long exposures and family photos without the timer.  The remote is really expensive and isn't even available at the Canon store.  Around $100 on amazon.

Re: Problems with Camera Connect App

Re: Problems with Camera Connect App

I have a new Canon SX 730- the instructions to connect my phone to my camera were bad!  So I went online to youtube:

https://www.google.com/search?ei=sEH9XKqHNKfB0PEPoMuWMA&q=connect+my+canon+sx730+to+my+phone+you+tub...

 

Luckily it worked- and when I was done tranferring all my pics to my phone and then uploading to Facebook, I turned off the Bluetooth- but wanting to ensure that I could do it again- I am travelling at the end of the month- I wanted to set it all up again.  But NOPE, NADDA, NOT AT ALL!  What is going on??  

 

I need a human to direct me to get this to work- what is the Customer Service number so I can get some directions?  

 

Thanks!

Re: Problems with Camera Connect App

I have the exact same issue with the latest release of Canon Camera Connect not able to run on my iPad Air 12.4.8. It closes as soon as I open it. I use this software for commercial photo shoots and was shocked when I showed up for a job today and was unable to connect with my camera.

Re: Problems with Camera Connect App

I have had the exact same problem this week with my iPad and my EOS R. My software version on the iPad is also 12.4.8. The Canon software previously had been working OK but stopped working when Canon pushed out their revision of Camera Connect this week. The new Canon app works with my iPhone, which has 13.7 software, however, the iPad Air latest revision possible is 12.4.8. I think the iPad Air 2 might have a higher IOS version but not everyone has an Air 2.

 

Apple Customer Service spent a couple of hours with me reloading the app (didn’t work) then saving the image, wiping the iPad and reloading, and it still wouldn’t work. The camera still links to the iPad, but the app won’t open. 

 

I do do my mobile editing on the iPad so I really need to get Canon Camera Connect to work again. I can only get my photos into the iPad now by loading through Canon Camera Connect on my phone, then Air dropping to the iPad which is very cumbersome. 

 

If Canon would offer an option to download the previous version of Canon Camera Connect, that might temporarily  solve the problem until they get the new version fixed.

Re: Problems with Camera Connect App

I was able to resolve my issue but not where I would have expected.  Turns out that my WIFI router had an update to the firmware.  I downloaded it, installed it and resolved my issues.

Sounds like your iPad is an older model.  Here are the specs for the Camera Connect App.

I do not think running an older release is the answer.  Previous versions probably do not know your camera even exists.

Re: Problems with Camera Connect App

To reiterate, this app worked fine on the iPad Air and the EOS R for a year already, no problems using the previous version of the software. The hardware still communicates fine. It is only the latest version of the software which does not open. 

 

The App Store said it would work with my version of iPad, the small print said it may not work with any listed device, lol. But the point is, it used to work with the hardware I have, and now it doesn’t.

Like I said, yoiur iPad is an older one.  I posted the link to the documentation page because your iPad does not appear to be listed as being supported by Apple.  Let me repeat that.  Your iPad is no longer supported by Apple.  

 

As you said, you cannot run the latest OS like an iPad Air 2.  That is not Canon's fault.  It is not Canon's fault that Apple only makes the most recent version available for download.  Apple controls what is available in their App Store, not Canon.
