Have you noticed that you can connect your phone to the R5 while it’s turned off?

But is your On/Off button physically "Off" when you wake the the camera via BT, the way you described?

Yes, this is the way it works on the R (I don't have the R5). Turned off via the power on-off switch and still it wakes up when use the app to connect.

I find this convenient if I want to browse (and perhaps ) the pictures I've taken when the camera is already in the bag. Very cool on public transport or in a café (where taking out the camera might be inconvienet and/or attract the wrong kind of attention).

Thanks but I need to positively know if he is getting that behavior from the R5.


Yes, when the power switch is physically "off" on the R5, I can still connect to it via my phone.
