Image download: EOS Remote App

The EOS Remote app is an Android and iOS application that allows a smartphone or tablet to connect wirelessly to an EOS camera with built-in WiFi. The EOS Remote App can currently be used with two cameras, the EOS 6D and the EOS 70D, and it performs two major functions:

 

An EOS Remote app screen showing the top menu, which offers application settings (top left), an In-Camera Image Viewer/Image Transferring and Saving, Remote Shooting and a WiFi Connection Guide.

1 – It allows you to view images located on the memory inside the camera and to download them to your smartphone or tablet. This allows you to check for focus and exposure on a larger screen than you have on the rear of the camera. You can also assign ratings to images or even delete them if you no longer wish to keep them on the card.

While viewing each image you can see the basic EXIF data – including shutter speed, aperture and ISO – and, if you wish, you can send the image via e-mail to friends, family or clients.

2 – The app allows you to remotely control your camera directly from your smartphone or tablet. If you are in an area with a WiFi network that you can connect to, then you can use infrastructure mode where both the smartphone and camera are on the same network. However, in areas where there is no network connection, the smartphone and camera can be connected directly using an AdHoc connection method – essentially your phone and camera generate their own WiFi network.

This means that whether you are out in the wilds, at the beach or in a basement, you can still use your smartphone or tablet for remote shooting.

With Remote Shooting, you can control many settings of the camera including shutter speed, aperture, ISO and exposure compensation, depending on the setting of the camera’s mode dial. It is also possible to activate autofocus on the camera either as part of pressing the shutter release button or by pressing the focus button, which is the equivalent of half pressing the shutter button on the camera. By double tapping the Live View display, you can magnify that section of the scene and so check for exact focus.

All of this can be achieved while the phone or tablet displays a full Live View image of from the camera. This makes it possible to place a remote camera and still monitor and trigger it from a remote location to ensure you don’t miss the decisive moment.

The EOS Remote App can be downloaded from either the iTunes store or the Google Play store, depending on the device you intend to use it with.
