Hi all

A friend is looking at buying a camera, he asked me if Apple can NFC from a camera to his iPhone, I said no, as NFC for Apple is only for Apple Pay.

 

I can't see that Airdrop will work or if any cameras are Airdrop compatible. 

 

Is anyone aware of any options, or is CCK the only option? I actually feel CCK would be a better option for speed. Are all cameras CCK compatible or will I need to check on some webpage compatibility checker?

Cheers

NFC is only used to setup/initiate a wireless connection, not actually used to transfer any data. You should be able to manually set up a wireless link between devices for the data transfer.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Googling didn't find much but its a Canon SX610HS that supports Canon Camera Connect app for wifi transfer to any iPhone/iPad, so thats good.

My Nikon D5300 supports WiFi transfer to iPhone

If/when you get Wifi support for the camera I recommend the Photosync app.

Hi - yep, sounds like you're on the right track - the Canon SX610HS has built in wifi. With Canon's free Camera Connect app on an iPhone you then use the camera as a wifi hotspot and connect the phone to its network. Start the app on the phone and it should then give you the option of browsing the images that are already on the memory card in the camera. You get the option of then downloading any of the images to the phone itself (saves them in the Camera Roll) - saves a low-ish res version of the selected images.
I use a couple of Canon cameras (with built-in wifi) in conjunction with my iPhone & iPad and it seriously expands on the whole digital photography experience.




Cheers,

Hmm, cheers for the detail. Can you not download from the camera to the iPhone as a full size untouched image?

Not AFAIK - with my 12Mpx camera it automatically transfers a 2Mpx (1600px x 1200px) to the iPhone. This is with the free Canon app.
The app mentioned by Alasta - Photosync - appears to be able to transfer a full res version - could be what's needed. A low res version has always been fine for me, and the Camera Connect app will allow remote control/communication with certain cameras.
