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

Re: yes, 100% sure

I use it very regularly, and in fact had the same question when I started out. So I looked and made sure I wasn't misunderstanding it

This is the "off" I am talking about

There aren't many settings, this is how mine is set up

Communication settings

Before being connected

Connected over BT, by tapping the little icon next to BT icon. Wifi is off.

After being connected, I can tap images on camera to browse and download jpg proofs (I shoot RAW)

Remote live view doesn't work when camera switch is at off position

Just be be clear, this is all on R5

Edit: on Android with phone supporting Bluetooth Low Energy
