What's New in Version 2.0.3
Altered some parts of the user interface.
I have the HF-R40. When first trying to use this app I recommend going to the cd that came with the camera. There is a complete instruction Manuel on the disc. There is a section "recording movies using a smartphone". It also works with an iPad. The steps are given in order. It worked the first time I tried it. If the steps are not done in order it will not connect. Write down the SSID and password for reference before setting up he process. The second time I tried it my device remembered the info, but it may come in handy in the future. This app is nice because it is not line of sight like most remotes. I put my camera in auto on standard quality.
It works well. It wont work though till u go to your phones wifi settings and select the camcorder first as your wifi source. So steps are 1) select smartphone streaming icon on camcorder. 2) go to phone and settings and select wifi then canon camcorder. 3) run app. Good luck. oh and app will be grayed out if your camcorder is not set up for "standard recording" under recording setup.
Not the best tool for wireless view
The app comes with no explanation for its configuration and expects its users to know which models it will work with. After connecting via settings on both device and camera the functions given are minimal and offer no fullscreen modes. The disclaimer is the only function in settings gear icon. Overall this app gives you what it promises but for close proximity use it has an awful delay. For its troubles you'd best just use the built in screen...
