I have the Canon 5D Mark 2 and it does NOT have wifi. This means that I can't use the fancy Canon App on my phone to take selfies!? I know. For shame. Well, after searching the internet and trying several workarounds, because, let's face it, I really need to see what the heck I look like before I take the shot, I have come up with a solution! Before I get started with the specifics, here is my jerry-rigged setup. With my laptop precariously on top of an upside down laundry basket in a chair. I wanted REALNESS people and sometimes an upside down laundry basket is what's there.
Now for the frustrating part!!
Here's what you will need:
*A laptop (I use my MacBook Pro)
*Iphone (Or Droid)
*This App for your phone
*The EOS utility specific to your camera. Go here to download.
*Tripod ( Optional)
*A wireless remote. (Optional) I have this one.
I know. It's a lot. But where there's a will there's a way. Basically, instead of just connecting my phone directly to my camera, I connect my computer to my camera and then connect my phone to my computer.
Download the EOS Utility App
Connect your camera to your computer. Open the app if it doesn't automatically and select "Camera settings/Remote shooting"
