EOS Remote

One of the cool new features I can take advantage of with the new EOS 70D camera is the built-in wifi functionality.  To be honest, I didn’t put much weight into the feature before buying, and am not sure I’ll actually use it much, but I thought I may as well set it up and see how it works.

The advantage to wifi is that I can set up the camera close to where something I don’t want to disturb will be, and then back off, letting that thing get comfortable.  Start the app on my phone and control the focus, aperture and everything else, then snap the pic.  Common example: a pet.  Therefore, I tested it on Chilli.

I’d read that setup was a maze, but I didn’t even open the instruction manual and had no troubles.  Seemed fairly straightforward to me.
