I don't use any of the services. I only use the image Sync part. Now it's time to install the "Image Transfer Utility" software on your mac if not already done. The problem is I can't remember where I got it from. I think it came along with some other app for one of my cameras.
Still haven't found what you are looking for?
It could be the "CameraWindow" app maybe. But I could not find it there when I looked today. Hopefully someone can tell where, when they find it. There will be a new icon in the menu bar on you mac. And set up the folder where you want images to be transferred. Now when you push the Wifi button on your camera there should be an icon a computer with a down arrow inside and the text "Image Sync". Selecting that and all not previously transferred images will be sent to your computer.
If you have A LOT of images, it can take some time, and it may be better to use a usb- cable.
I use this image sync all the time on all my cameras and it works very stable. I have all 3 registered and it seems like I could add more if I wanted. I don't know how many you can register. It'a bit clumsy to set up, but it is a one time prosedure for each camera and when that is done it works very very well. At least for me. My last note for now: The Image Sync sends the images to my Mac " directly" with directly I mean locally via my wifi router if my mac is on.
Very nice. I sincerely hope this writeup helps a little and maybe someone else can fill in the missing parts. I found this link to download the "Image Transfer Utility" for Mac: For Windows: It is also possible to connect via an iPhone don't know about other phones instead of a home wifi router when in the field. The key here is to turn on the Personal Hotspot option on your iPhone and connect both your mac and the camera to the new iPhone network.
And following the procedure from the first post, if not already set up. On your camera you may have to select the "Switch Network" when you use the "Image Sync" if you have previously used it on your home wifi network. It works, but it needs Internet access - it doesn't work with router or mobile hotspot that stays offline and doesn't consume traffic..
"Was this helpful?"
CameraWindow for Mac still doesn't support direct WiFi transfer on latest Mac OS version, so no any chance for wireless transfer for Mac users untill Canon fix it although after years of neglecting it looks like they simply don't care about it.. Canon support don't seem to have any interest in resolving this, I'm discussing it with them on the Canon Community but it seems this problem has been kicking around now since !!! M sending directly to computer. It works the same for my other cameras.
Image Transfer Utility for Mac OS X
It works very stable for me. But occasionally if the camera can not connect to the mac for some reason, it will send via the server on the Internet and that obviously takes much longer time. Here is the most crucial question for me, at least: On a broadband dongle it would chew the data allowance up in no time. I just don't understand why Canon seem to have zero interest in making a true direct connection work with the last four major releases of MacOS.
I will check that later and upload a screenshot.
I only did one short test in the field to see if it worked. On travel I will use a card reader to transfere to my iPad.
Now a tricky question: I don't see how this could work with an iPad.
