How can I connect my camera over USB to transfer photos / videos or enable remote shooting?
After successful configuration you will be able to transfer photos / videos from your camera to your iPhone / iPad over USB. PhotoSync also supports direct transfer to Computer, NAS or Cloud from your camera without having to import to your iPhone/iPad first. For many Canon EOS cameras PhotoSync enables tethered shooting: Photos & videos are transferred to your iPhone / iPad right after shooting. Optionally, immediate transfer to remote locations (computer, NAS, cloud) can be configured, plus photo booth support over HDMI & Airplay to a big TV screen is also possible.

PhotoSync will now detect your camera and display its's name. Tap on the name of the camera to connect to it.
