Works Great for importing Photos Quickly!

I’ve had my Canon Rebel T6 for a couple year now and I’ve been using this app to import my photos directly to my iPhone. The app is easy to figure out and use! I love that I am able to import the photos to my iPhone and keep the quality of the photos, it’s also very useful to quickly delete any unwanted photos on your camera. I definitely recommend this app whether you’ve had your Canon Camera for awhile or are just starting out with your camera!

Fails to meet basic needs of professional photographers

I was hoping to use this app to turn an iPad into a dedicated high-res viewfinder to inspect shots immediately after shooting them, to verify focus, and check for any little details, which often go unnoticed on the small screen on the back of the camera. Unfortunately, this app fails to meet this need in a most frustrating and ridiculous way… Of course, the live view image is significantly reduced in size. This is expected. What surprises me is that after taking the shot, the app insists on displaying a low resolution version of the image and sticking it in this tiny window that cannot be expanded,. And when I click to download the full resolution image, it doesn’t display it! Instead, it offers to open it in another app, or download it to my iPhone Photos. And if I do that, it bounces me away from the Camera Connect app, and when I switch back to the Camera Connect app, it has disconnected from my camera! And so I must renegotiate the camera connection after viewing the full resolution image in another app. This is totally unworkable. This app assumes that I am some kind of social media influencer, not a professional photographer doing critical work. Very unfortunate. I’ll have to stick with desktop based solutions.

I see the same complaints 10 years ago

This app is a complete waste of time. I was so thrilled to upload my photos wirelessly on vaca as a backup. It is cumbersome to figure out, insisted on uploading to google photos and google wanted access to all of my photos. Figured out how to transfer to my iCloud instead (could not tell you how, but I did it). Takes forever, even on my home wifi that is Fast for everything else. The biggest problem is that it doesn't transfer sequentially, neither by date/time or by img #. There are skips, uploads 10 in a row, skips one, 2 more uploaded, skips 10. Then it numbers them with a (2) that puts it all out of order. This is the same complaint from a review from 10 years ago. Why, canon, why? Fix this thing, or don't offer it. I have 3000 photos from a long vacation with intermittent missing photos. I have spent a week trying to figure out which pix are missing. I'm giving up and buying an sd card reader. The positive reviews must be from canon employees. Cannot fully express my disappointment in this app. (Love my Eos R 10, but maybe I should have bought a nikon)
