Used to work for me I'm having issues with it not detecting the camera at all now I've reinstalled it and when the camera tells me to open the app I open the helicon one yet never detects my camera yet my phone is synced w my camera. I can close I don't have this problem with the EOS Remote app but like the intervalometer on this, also wish you could change the Picture Style and Shooting mode such as 2 sec delay. Please fix this as I want to use this. Also experience much more lag in this app and longer manual focusing times.

It would be great if it could be registered I blew $75 for the license. There is NO way short of blowing another $75 for another license!

Doesn't work. I wanted to try this app to help with auto focus motor noise in videos, but it just doesn't work. I tried this app on both of my phones and cameras, both are supported but it never connected. I have all the adapters needed but it still did nothing. I wish this would work, but sadly I cannot recommend this app.
