I’m thinking about putting a feeder outside my back porch and setting up my Canon 6D camera and tripod nearby inside the porch. The camera would be focused on the feeder. In a phone conversation with a Canon technical specialist, I believe I understood that because this camera (6D) has Wi Fi built in, I would be able to set up a smart phone to view the bird at the feeder and take photos of the bird at the feeder (or wherever) from a remote location such as inside the house.
I wonder if anyone has had any luck doing something like this and if so, how did it work out? If I decide to do this I would need to buy a smart phone. (I guess I’m the only person in America that doesn’t own one.) I wonder if I go ahead with this plan if there would be any special features in the smart phone I would need to look for?
Thanks very much for any help.
