How to Connect Your Canon EOS 6D to Your Smartphone

Would you like be able to take a picture by waving your hand? You’ll have to settle for a smartphone connection to your EOS 6D. But, it’s almost the same. After you have the Canon remote app downloaded, you can easily connect your camera to your smartphone by following these steps:

  1. Launch the EOS app on your smartphone.

  2. Use the Multi-controller to navigate to the Camera Settings 3 tab.

  3. Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight Wi-Fi Functions, and then press Set.

    The Wi-Fi functions are displayed.

  6. Use the Multi-controller or Quick Control dial to highlight OK, and then press Set.

    You camera is now available to your smartphone.

  7. On your Smartphone EOS Remote app, click Connect to Camera.

    After you connect to the camera, you can use the EOS Remote app to trigger the Shutter button and view images stored on the memory card on your Smartphone.

This option is wonderful for the busy photographer working on location with the camera on a tripod. The photographer can work with subjects, showing them how to pose and so on.

It’s also great for a photographer photographing still-life images. The photographer can make changes to the still life and then use the Smart phone to take a picture. After the picture has been taken, the photographer can review it on the smartphone instead of walking back to the camera. This app saves time and shoe leather. How cool is that?
