Will this Canon - Powershot SX530 work with WiFi?

Postby r1ckylol » Fri Nov 24, 2017 4:06 pm

Hi, wondering if the Canon PowerShot SX530 Digital Camera, will support both WiFi infrastructure, of letting people email their pictures while the camera is connected to the iPad?

My Sony a7ii doesn't let do both at a time, and makes it a hassle for clients that want there pictures sent to there phones right away.

Sorry, PowerShot cameras are not yet supported (but they are planned to be supported).
The EOS 750D is a good choice for what you're asking for. Black friday sales have this one on sale in case you're in North America...

Got it, and will the 750D support external flashes?

Yes it does. I use strobe flash. Note that one limitation of this camera (because it's a cheaper one), is that it cannot show the live view at one exposure setting and take the photo with a different exposure setting: the live view exposure is always locked to the same exposure the photo will be taken at. In practice, this means that if you use flash, the live view is all black (useless).
If that's bad for you, then either use constant-on lighting, or go up a camera to the 80D which DOES support having the live view having a separate exposure (ie. bright enough to see the subject)

A quick update that Wifibooth now supports Powershot cameras with the latest update (4.7.2 or newer)

No - the SX530 cannot shoot while connected over wifi, making it unusable with Wifibooth.

To be honest I am not sure. Are you able to try that camera with Wifibooth, without purchasing the camera?
