    Hi,
    I'm in my 9th decade but am still interested in techniques. I can connect my camera to my computer by USB cable. That, of course, limits the range of any photographing. I enjoy photographing birds, and would like to have some remote control. How easy is it to use WIFI?

    Hi, Clive. I use a small PC laptop connected to my 1D mark 3, this gives a larger image to view and other functions that come in handy. This is a ideal setup if you are in a hide or just sitting and watching.

    Canon Connect supports the 70d, and would allow for wireless shooting and file transfer using the camera as a wifi signal.

    Many thanks again. Weather far too wet at the moment. Perfect time to look at the options available.
    Good night.
