Need EOS Remote help.
10 months ago

Last December I bought the 6D and love it. And one of the things I love about it is having ability to operate it remotely via an app for a smart phone. (I use the iPhone 5.) Recently I was fiddling with various settings and one of the things I discovered was when I connect the 6D to my iPhone I no longer have AF capability and it just shows MF (manual focus).

I've gone over the various settings numerous times and I have no idea what I changed that now means I no longer have AF access (with the little 'button' just off the main button on the phone's touch screen). Interestingly enough if I go into the app's settings and disable AF that takes away the second smaller 'AF' button and when I shoot remotely the AF is again activated. I just can't lock and recompose.

I've had no luck on the internet as there are only videos and manuals on setting things up but very little on what I see on the smart phone and how to use it (which is really strange).  So if someone here could tell me what I may have overlooked or set incorrectly on the camera's settings menu to cause this that would be great!
