EOS Remote

Expand the capabilities of your EOS and your smartphone.

EOS Remote is an application for Apple iOS or Android smartphones. When used with EOS cameras featuring built-in Wi-Fi it becomes a powerful accessory you can carry in your pocket. EOS Remote makes taking photos and checking images more convenient.

Features

The creative possibilities for photography increases when you use the remote function with Live View enabled, making photography even more fun. The EOS Remote app provides the possibility to quickly check photos in the camera using a smartphone. You can transfer and save images to your smartphone or even share them with friends or family.

EOS Remote allows connection via access points (infrastructure), but even in environments without access points, it can be used if you have just a camera and a smartphone. It can be used in places where Wi-Fi networks are scarce, such as outside cities, on coasts, in mountains, or in basement studios, and in trains or cars where signals are hard to catch.

Group photos with the photographer in them are made easier.

With Live View, you can check images from remote locations.

Quickly check your photos without having to take your camera out of the bag.

Each of your friends can choose and save the photos they want.
