  1. I've given up,have headache will be throwing it out of the window shortly,bought the wrong camera I think

  2. I got the SX610. Yeah the wifi is impossible to set up. You do what the video says and the camera says look for the cloud symbol in the wifi menu. As far as I can tell there is no wifi menu. All my choices are either a cell phone or the computer symbol which if you pick that your back at the select the cloud symbol in the wifi menu. Vicious circle.

  3. Okay have to say they told me how to fix it. And yes I now have a wifi connection. Thank you Canon and the employee that never gets credit for the fix. May you be blessed.

  4. This goes too fast … I am having trouble with all the things I am told to do, I have to keep closing this window I am used to connecting with a USB… I am too old for this. I might just use card reader. I am going to try the support team when I get a chance. I am happy to see I am not the only one frustrated with this

  5. I have a SX610 HS but no smartphone. I'm asking if I can remotely shoot videos with my laptop instead of a smartphone ( as I don't have one). The features say shoot remotely with smartphone but wondering if it's possible with a laptop? Although the app seems to be for android and ios so really don't know. Thanks..

  6. I have been at this for hours. Each time, I get a little farther along. Then the video fails to match my situation and I have to employ "guess and check" until something on my computer or camera happens to match. The camera interface designer should be forced to endure this sort of labyrinth to get lunch.

  7. NOT HAPPY – tried to follow instructions to download software but can't find it for my mac OS 10.11, I have a feeling they don't support a Mac desk top. This sucks!

  8. Why can't the cameras work just like the Eye-Fi cards from 10 years ago? Super simple. Turn on camera and any new photos copy to computer. Done. They even transferred as you took them if you were in Wi-Fi range. Yes there was some setup to be done but you only did it once. If the card was more than 2GB I'd still be using it.

    That said thankfully I found this video. Computer Engineer with 20+ years of experience (30+ with computers) and nothing made sense about getting this to work, it was like Canon was trying to force me to sign up for their online service I knew I didn't want.

  9. I am returning the Canon I just bought. This would make three cameras that I can't get working with wireless. I don't know why I bought another. But no more Canon for me.

  10. I have been at this for a couple of hours. Was finally able to download the photos I wanted but now I have no idea how to go about it the next time. I have a "Map" icon on my desktop which is of no use. When I try to use the Image Download Utility (under Canon Utilities) absolutely nothing happens. NOT HAPPY JAN.

  11. Spent over 4 hours trying to setup this camera for WiFi. No USB cord provided so you are stuck. This youtube video is useless as their onscreen does not match my Windows 10 and it appears that you would have to be a software programmer to decipher the myriad of instructions. Why did you need to make a one touch camera so complicated and only suitable to a NASA engineer??? I was forewarned to stay away from Canon PowerShots for this very reason. Back to Hunt it goes.

  12. It would be easy for all of us if you just installed a USB connection so that we can plug-and-play immediately to our PCs/Apples etcetera. But this is beyond the limited commonsense and even more limited abilities of your boardroom-level techies: wealthy backgrounds not healthy talents got them their jobs. Technology should be progressive and make life easier, not unduly complicate things.

  13. I have this camera and the correct wifi connection, but sometimes it is searching forever, and then said "device" not found. I would prefer to have a cable connection as an option, but it is not included in the sales. I hope Canon will make both wifi and cable connection available in the future. Many of your costumers are not computer experts.

  14. This is the worst camera I have ever owned. What happened to jut plugging in the USB cable and it works, this wi-fi Cloud crap sucks. I have been trying to get this stupid thing to connect to my work network for 2 hours… If if plug in the camera it showed it their but it says it has no new photos. now I have incident photos that I need to get off and I cant. Cannon can Kiss my Ass.


  16. I also tried but came to a stand still when I couldn't open the downloaded canon instruction, HOWEVER, if you take your memory card and pop it in your laptop you can transfer your photos that way!!
