Canon Camera Connect Reviews


Takes too long  @noajasmine  2 star

This app takes so long to connect to my phone now. I’ve redownloaded the app a number of times and even tried to connect it with the WiFi I always use but it still doesn’t connect.


App won’t open  rog4444  1 star

This app doesn’t work at all ! It won’t open.


New update?  AnonymousRowerChick  1 star

I used this app for years and it worked great. Reliable, simple. Great. I tried using it today and it simply does not connect my iPhone and my camera. I’m not sure what’s up with that but it makes sharing pictures very difficult :(


Nope  noxiousgoth  1 star

You guys really messed this app up it was perfect the way it was I’m unable to connect to my camera this so called eazy connect is misleading


What a pitiful joke  Demmy556  1 star

An utter mess of a disaster of a galling waste of time.


Useless…  hummersallad  1 star

This app is unbelievably bad. I am using an iPhone X (iOS 13) and the brand new Canon EOS R with a Canon 24-105 RF lens. Configuring and setting up is very easy but then the problems start. There is a lag of several seconds although I am only 10 feet away from the camera. It is impossible to make eye detection work when using the app. I have tested this extensively for self portraits but totally useless. 90% of the time” I just get the error message “focus failure” although my face is well lit. Crap!! Come on Canon, you can do better!


wish my camera model was there  rileyella  1 star

I have a canon eos rebel t3i and it’s one of slightly newer cameras that aren’t available to be connected. Is it possible to add this one?


GOOD, but could be better  InfamousE90  3 star

I like it a lot when it keeps its connection on WiFi on! I connect with it on my iPhone 8 plus and notices it cuts off connection here and there. Mind you. Im not anymore farther than 8 inches away from my camera in hand and my phone sitting there. I have no choice but to connect it again.


Very bad  cameraman3334  1 star

Camera is great and I love it but to keep it short and sweet the app is absolutely garbage and never works. It will tell me to start dedicated app on target device and I will but it will load forever to only end up telling me it couldn’t find anything. Very frustrating and I can’t imagine this can’t fixed or revised to be made easier for casual users.


Horrible  Lexialexiss  1 star

Glitchy and so annoying. Doesn’t connect and when it connects it’s only for a minute.


Absolutely useless & extremely frustrating  warwickmelb  1 star

After going through multiple, confusing connection steps, which usually produce nothing, finally, by some random luck getting the camera connected (doing the same steps, but producing a different result), then you MIGHT get to see your photos on my iPhone (although usually only some of them appear before it randomly disconnects again), and if you’re even luckier, you MIGHT even be able to transfer one or two before the again random disconnection occurs. Fix this useless app, please Canon. We buy your fancy, expensive cameras, and would like to be able to access our photos from a device... It’s utterly frustrating as it is now.



I don’t have a problem with the appZ it’s never crashed on me. But it only allows photo transfers and not video transfers which is very annoying! Please fix this


Ridiculous  MummaShoots  1 star

It won’t connect! I’ve used (an older version of?) this app a thousand times on my old phone. I updated to the iPhone 8 and I can’t connect to my EOS80D for the world!! Driving me mad.


Poor product  Adros88  1 star

I was excited to use the app, and expected the usual connection setup..... however the connection process each time is HORRIBLE !!! Why on earth is is so complicated? Why would you make it like this? Fire your developers, hire some fresh out of uni faces and make an actual working app.


More features please!  Scunf  1 star

What’s the point of rating photos on the camera when you can’t filter by Stars using the app?

Bro Brian2

Rediculous2  Bro Brian2  1 star

It is not possible to follow the prompts as the options on the camera are different to the ones in the set up guide!


Works fine for me  Pearler07  5 star

I’m not too sure why a bunch of people are whinging about this app - I managed to set it up and start shooting remotely and then transfer images to my iPhone and send via text in approximately ten minutes - and that was after a few beers and a nice red!! 😁👍🏽


Finch102034  finch102034  1 star

Absolute bulls...t - this app never works and is an entire waste of space and valuable time. Seriously Canon, just how hard is it? If I could give it no rating I would.


Horrible  Samickle  1 star

I had to delete the app because they didn’t have the ELPH 520 HS, and it says to connect using the instruction guide which I threw away because I didn’t think I needed it


Works well  audreymayday  5 star

Initially I struggled to get the app to work, so I YouTubed the step by step process. Realized that my camera was connected to my home WiFi instead of my phone connecting to my camera own WiFi. I just had to reset the WiFi settings and then my phone was able to connect with the camera. Highly recommend looking up YouTube if you are having trouble connecting

Worthless app not worth it

If I could give you 0 stars I would.  Worthless app not worth it  1 star

Frankly I’m disappointed Canon. I have owned nothing but canon cameras and they always perform flawlessly. I can’t say that about this app. It rarely connects like it’s supposed to. I just spent 10 minutes going through the easy connect app. I think this qualifies as an oxymoron. Please go back and make it “easy” as you guys have stated it was supposed to be. Garbage....I expect this from other camera brands, but not you Canon.


Why does it creates empty albums  whisoeownbshkak  1 star

I have been using this for an year then it has created more than 500 junk empty albums that nothing inside!! Super annoying


OK app but not great. Wish would I have an Apple Watch feature for remote shooting  ShelleyHB  4 star

Works OK but a little glitchy. Still worth downloading to get the job done and view pics. Really would like an Apple Watch remote shutter (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE)


*GOOGLE SPY APP*  Airobatic  1 star

To be honest, this app promises much, but delivers little. It has a crappy interface and trying to connect to your camera is kludgy at best. *More Importantly: Watch out and read carefully. They require you to give your information to Google. WHY? What business is it of Google? Who in their right mind would choose to use an app that spies on you? Big, major FAIL Canon!! Because of this, I am tempted to jump ship to a competitor that offers a better line of mirrorless cameras. As much as I like Canon cameras, if this bad app quality, and the fact that they feel it’s appropriate to share my data to a soulless company like Google is where they see their future, I’m out!


Does Not Work Since The Update!  FrankieTSM  1 star

This worked beautifully with my Canon SX720HS. Ever since the update I can not connect the camera to any of my iOS devices...not iPad Pro, not iPhone. I see the SSID on the iOS device, I can connect to the access point. It accepts the password, but when I go to the app,!


Terrible  Trin_Darling  1 star

This app is atrocious. Never connects to my camera


Wastes my time!  mare511  2 star

I have never used an app that takes so much time to connect to! I do not use it daily or even weekly but when I do I ALWAYS waste time trying and relearning with this unfriendly app! Should be easier!!!


Doesn’t work with iPhone X  Snoopyhoff  2 star

I used to use this app perfectly with my iPhone 7 but haven’t been able to to with iPhone X. Developers need to address this issue.

Who Do you Think U R!

New update makes app useless  Who Do you Think U R!  1 star

I’ve used this app for almost 2 years and have always been very happy with it. Recently I got a new phone. iPhone Xr and all of my apps updated when I synced my old phone info to my new phone, now the canon app tells me there is no connection at all and I’m doing exactly what I’ve done for two years. Fix this app canon. It’s part of your camera’s deal. If you can’t fix the app you should advertise on your cameras that they are WiFi comparable because now mine isn’t!!


Doesn’t work  Allyenne  1 star

The instructions do not match what displays on my iPhone or camera.

Cynical Potato

Cannot transfer RAW files.  Cynical Potato  1 star

I purchased an EOS R in an effort to change to a mobile workflow, using my IPad Pro and my IPhone XS Max and I am beyond disappointed. Before you mention the SD card reader dongle, I have it, and it does not work and crashes the photos app. Apple’s iOS 12 can read CR3 RAW. People also need a way to transfer their Videos through this app as well. Either: 1. ADD FULLY FLEDGED RAW ADJUSTMENT BEFORE TRANSFER IN THE APP 2. ALLOW THE TRANSFER OF RAWS WITHOUT ANY CONVERSION SO PEOPLE CAN USE LIGHTROOM TO ADJUST IT.
