I got an old Canon PS 3500 IS, camera

It always connected well via WiFi to my Samsung GN3 Android through Canon Camera Connect app. It showed 4 rows of pictures and I could select <= 50 pics for download.

Now it only shows two rows of pics and all goes in slow motion, fading in each picture. (Still using Camera Connect app, I don't know why it changed behavior. I don't know if it updated for the worse.)

I always connect directly to the phone by setting the camera as an access point.

(In the meantime I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Canon Camera Window app which I believe is unrelated)

The version is build 437

How do I get back the quick efficient picture transfer via WiFi?

    I don't have a WiFi enabled DSLR – but you're welcome to check my list of Camera remote control apps. Maybe there's some other app doing a better job. – Izzy Jan 13 '17 at 11:10
  • Thanks. I'll check it out. My camera is not DSLR, it is just a simple compact camera, but I like it and I have used it a lot. / It can not be controlled remotely, just download pictures. – ycc_swe Jan 13 '17 at 11:13
  • Not being a DSLR might be limiting features – but basic stuff like photo preview and download might still work. Worth a try at least. // BTW: I'm just updating the linked list, so if you didn't find anything now it might be worth to check again in a few hours :) – Izzy Jan 13 '17 at 11:15

    Afraid you might be right, there was an update on January 4th. One of the reasons I don't use auto-update (I always check the changelog first). You could try restoring a backup if you have one – or get the APK of the previous version to give it a try (see e.g. APKPure) – Izzy Jan 13 '17 at 12:46

    May I suggest you carry the install issue over to our Android Enthusiasts sister site, as that's off-topic here? But before asking, check these posts (you're obviously not the first with that issue). My guess is you first need to uninstall it (downgrade not allowed). – Izzy Jan 13 '17 at 13:57
