Re: Geotagging and Canon Camera Connect

I have found this works well on the R.  You just have to monitor that it is still working.  As it warns on page 415 of the EOS R manual, if you turn the camera off, it can lose the GPS connection.  I found that I needed to open the smartphone again to reconnect it.  I’m not sure whether it would have done so by itself, if I had waited long enough.

When I was on a safari recently, I got into the habit of leaving the camera switched on all the time, albeit with power saving enabled.  That seemed to be an effective way of maintaining the GPS connection, though I continued to monitor it.  I was afraid the battery would run out on either the smartphone or the EOS R, but I never had a problem.
