I prefer wireless too ...
But camranger has some issue too .. on 1Dx you have to set to 0 the picture reviewing time after shooting otherwise AF won't progress in focus stacking.
On my Ipad connexion to the wifi can be tricky because of the password. I have to cancel and retry again connection.
On helicon I can set the time between 2 pictures for leaving enough time for the flash (I use a MT24EX) to be ready, on camranger it's impossible so it's really tricky to stack pictures 2 by 2 and hopping that between the 2 pictures flash will have enough time, if I do the third picture too fast => Flash won't surely be ready.
In my case, I would love to use camranger with helicon features (parameters) Helicon is probably more mature. Actually with a 5DII and 1Dx, in my use, I have no issue on helicon.
As I said in my post I think Helicon is a bit better at Focus stacking, so we agree there, but I prefer CamRanger for almost everything else. I do think $299 is a bit steep though.
I've never had any connection issues on CamRanger but I'm just one guy so that's not really statistically relevant...
