I just bought my wife a Canon ELPH 320 HS, one of the first point and shoot cameras with built-in WiFi. Having become used to pictures taken with our iPhones appearing on our computers nearly instantly, we weren't going back to plugging in SD cards. People have been reporting troubles accessing the pictures on the camera from their Macs. It worked pretty seamlessly for me (on an iMac with OS X 10.7.3).
Here's what I did:
1. I installed all the Canon software on my Mac. I popped the CD into the drive and ran the Setup application. It took a while to install and required me to connect the camera to the computer via USB so it could download the appropriate software.
2. I took a few test shots with the camera. After taking the test shots, I pressed the physical playback button at the bottom right of the back panel to view my pictures.
3. There's a wifi icon on the playback screen (top left). Tapping this brings you to a semi-crude display letting you select a device that you want to transfer pictures too. All I care about is transferring back to my computer so I figure the computer icon is the one I want.
4. I tapped the computer icon and was asked to select an device. I assume this means a computer, but there aren't any shown because I haven't setup the camera yet.
5. I tapped 'Add a Device' and was magically brought to a screen enabling me to connect the camera to my wifi network. I selected the network and entered the password. I was online in a few seconds.
6. Once I was online, I was brought back to the 'Select a Device' screen where my iMac now automatically appeared as a device available for selection (this is the computer that has the Canon software installed).
7. I tapped 'Jeff's iMac' and the Canon software opened on the computer and let me import pictures via WiFi. Pictures transferred at a rate of roughly 3 seconds per picture.
Now, anytime I want to send pictures from the camera to the computer, I go to the playback screen, tap the WiFi button and the import software opens on my Mac. The Canon software does have a preference to automatically start importing pictures when it launches, but inexplicably it still requires me to acknowledge a dialog on the Mac before the images start transferring. So, I still have to go to the computer to initiate the transfer. Hopefully this gets fixed.
Technical details: I'm using an iMac (i7) running Mac OS 10.7.3. My router is a Netgear WNDR3700 v2 running DD-WRT (17201). The iMac has a static IP address assigned by the router and is connected wirelessly.
I'll post some comparison shots between my iPhone 4S and the Canon ELPH 320 HS tomorrow. I'm just glad the WiFi link seems to be up and running.
