How to Wirelessly Transfer and Share Pictures from DSLR

If Christmas is all about making memories, capturing them is often half the fun. And though your smartphone makes sharing photos with friends and family extremely easy, the reality is you'll get much better photos using a traditional DSLR camera. Fortunately, the Canon EOS Rebel T6i’s Wi-Fi functionality means you don’t have to choose between the convenience of sharing and the best image quality possible.

Seamless Sharing

With the EOS Rebel T6i, you can share where and what you want, with streamlined connectivity directly from the camera (no computer required!). Email photos and videos to your loved ones, near and far. Upload holiday pictures and video directly to Facebook and Twitter with the tap of a button. Send favorite shots wirelessly to a nearby networked Canon PIXMA Printer or PictBridge-compatible printer, then create and mail high quality prints.

Moving Memories

This camera puts holiday slide show direction in your hands, too. At the end of the day, when the festivities are over and your family is winding down, fire up your Canon EOS Rebel T6i and wirelessly transfer still images and videos to compatible media players and smart TVs. Together with your loved ones, you can recreate your memorable holiday moments with a one-of-a-kind holiday slideshow. All that’s missing is some hot cocoa and holiday cookies.

There's an App for That

The Canon Camera Connect app turns your Android or iOS mobile device into a remote control for your camera, giving you an additional screen for composing your shot, zooming and focusing, and setting self-timers. And while you can certainly share to your network directly from the camera’s digital display, the Camera Connect app also pairs the EOS Rebel T6i with your Android or iOS mobile device and transfers images wirelessly, too. It’s a great way to get in some last minute edits, add a photo filter or create a collage before uploading and sharing your images.

Hashtag It

Now that your camera has taken your holiday photo sharing to a new level, it's time to get all of those pics organized and keep the holiday memories going. How do you do it? With hashtags! Trendy social networking identifiers (like #TeamCanon) will help you round up all of the holiday photos you and your guests take, and make it even easier to share the collection with others. Or create your own fun, festive hashtag that's easy to remember and unique to your family, and include it in all of your holiday photo posts. Then encourage your friends and family to hashtag their own photo updates, and invite them to tag themselves in yours so your photo sharing reach grows even bigger.
