One of the issues with the Canon WFT-E6 wi-fi module is configuring and setting it up to communicate with the iPad or iPhone. There are a number of variables that need to be set before it will talk to the iPad. So if you are having problems here is my guide to how I managed to connect two WFT-6s to an iPad pro.

The following photographs show what settings I have used to enable the 1Dx & WFT-E6 to work with an iPad running ShutterSnitch.

In the Communications settings menu, enable the Communication Function.

Ok so that is the camera settings done, now power up the iPad and go to settings & in Wi-Fi look for your Cameras SSID name. Connect to it, it will say something like ‘No Internet Connection are you sure?” click Yes and join.

Once connected click on the blue i next to the network name and manually enter the IP details.
