There are numerous useful Canon apps that will make shooting, learning and sharing easier and more fun.
If you have a Wi-Fi enabled camera, you can use the free Canon Camera Connect app to control your camera remotely from your Android or iOS device, to get yourself in the picture and avoid the chance of camera shake. With your camera mounted on a tripod, you can engage directly with the baby, monitoring your camera's Live View on your phone and triggering the shutter when the decisive moment arrives. You can also use the app to quickly import your photos straight onto your phone for easy sharing. Even some entry-level cameras, such as the Canon EOS R100, support automatic transfer, so you can review and share your images from your mobile device, straight after the shoot! Services such as image.canon are also a great alternative for transferring and storing your images in the cloud for further processing and sharing at a later stage.
The Canon Photo Companion app offers personalised tips and exercises that are suited to your specific camera model. All you have to do is select your EOS camera when prompted, and a wealth of video tutorials, inspirational articles and tips on various topics such as photographing children is available at your fingertips, allowing you to constantly improve your photography and learn on the go.
If you have a baby in your family, pick up your camera and start capturing all those precious memories and remember that instead of leaving them on the SD card, it’s worth printing them out so they can live on alongside you and continuously bring you back to those special moments in time.
