Do you know that your Digital Compact Camera can perform new functions when paired with a smartphone?
Like cheese and wine, smartphones and the latest Digital Compact Cameras are designed to complement each other and to work together.
We didn’t know about it too until we gave the Canon PowerShot G7 X a trial run. Now, they are features I can’t live without.
Function 1: Remote Shooting App
Actual remote controls are a thing of the past. Now, we have smartphone apps that we can use to remotely control our cameras.
We introduce the Canon Camera Window, an app to make transferring and viewing high-quality images and videos on your Digital Compact Camera fast and easy.
With this app, you can take photos with your Digital Compact Camera and immediately upload it to your social media platforms without going through the hassle of using a laptop or computer as a medium. This makes forgetting your transfer cable much less painful indeed!
Function 2: More Selfie Opportunities
With the 180-degree LCD touchscreen, selfies have never been easier. Not only that, the app also allows you to preview the photo screen and, at a click on your smartphone, the shutter on the Digital Compact Camera would snap simultaneously.
Now you can adjust your position to the background more easily, before activating the shutter. This is particularly useful for group photos at beautiful, wide settings. Expect to get some great shots!
