Chapter 10: Using the Canon EOS 6D Wireless Features

The Canon EOS 6D introduces the first-ever built-in Wi-Fi and GPS features included on an EOS camera.

Wi-Fi makes it easy to use a smartphone or tablet to control the camera and capture images remotely, connect to and print from wirelessly enabled printers, transfer images between Wi-Fi enabled cameras, and share your images and movies on popular social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
