Works with Galaxy Nexus & Jellybean but not with Nexus 5 & Lollipop Using the same camera this app works fine on Galaxy Nexus withJellybean but not on Nexus 5 with Lollipop. The camera's access point and the Nexus 5 can connect to each other but the app just freezes as soon as the connection is completed. Canon needs to fix this and also there should be a warning in the app's description in the Playstore. Canon, please fix.
Canon sucks. I've got the same problem as apparently everybody. This app just doesn't work. My phone is connected, but it tells me it isn't. I simply cannot understand how a huge company like Canon can ignore such an enormous problem. This function was the ONLY reason I bought this camera. Wish my Sony didn't break. Never had problems with their app.
I think there is a compatibility issue. The new version of the app works well with my brand new SX60 HS but will not work at all with my G16, which is itself less than a year old. The old version, pre remote control, worked fine. The equivalent app on my sony just works and is easier to connect.
Doesn't work on Galaxy Tab 4 with 340hs! Neither does Canon CameraConnect! CameraWindow worked well on my ancient Froyo Samsung Dart phone. So yes I know how to set up the app, But neither of your apps will work on my Tab 4 7.0"! Please make it compatible with my tablet!
Used to work... After I got my SX 280 HS this app worked flawlessly...then suddenly it don't work at all. Come on Canon...let's fix this. Still doesn't work after the update. I turn on my camera...open the app...both the camera Wi-Fi and phone settings are named the same...but nothing at all happens. Sure glad this is free...cause it's worth nothing.
Not working on Android L Finally an update, maybe now the app will work on 5.0..... Down load the new app... And guess what, that doesn't work either! Come on Canon sort it out! Its such an awesome app yet fails to work on the latest platforms!!!
Canon has released a new application "Camera Connect" to replace CameraWindow. Please use "Camera Connect" to connect your Canon digital camera to smartphones and tablets.
