W-E1 SD Wifi adaptor for 7D Mkii
Received my W-e1 adaptor with a certain amount of excitement today.
Despite what the reviews of the Canon Connect app had predicted (or perhaps because of them) I was able to connect directly to my Samsung Note 4 with ease.
It does exactly what I want - allows me to focus, snap the local wildlife and review remotely. Perfect.
Except, when I turn the camera off it shuts down the hotspot (as you would expect) but when the camera is restarted the WiFI shows as off. The only way i have found to restart it is to go into the WiFi menu and reconnect to the phone
Not the end of the world but a bit of a pain. I'm wondering if I am missing something - I'd hoped that the WiFi would simply restart when the camera is switched back on.
Perhaps this is by design as a battery conserving measure but i would be grateful if anyone could advise on this.
