Canon Wi-Fi cameras
The table below lists the required technical specifications for each type of connection and also includes important information on the use of the Wireless LAN function. It explains what type of connections are possible using a Canon Wi-Fi camera and which other mobile devices, software and services are compatible with the wireless function. Please note that Android devices will be supported after April 2012.
Wi-Fi Ad hoc mode does not require a Wi-Fi access point and allows the Canon Wi-Fi camera to connect directly to the target device. The target device must also be compatible with Wi-Fi Ad hoc mode. The Wi-Fi Infrastructure mode uses at least one main Wi-Fi access point to which these cameras must be connected in order to communicate with other Wi-Fi capable devices. Even though these cameras support connectivity to Wi-Fi access points, they cannot be used in wireless networks such as public wireless hotspots which require the use of a web browser for authentication.
