I'm most likely going to purchase a Canon Powershot G6.

In the box, I will be supplied with the WL-DC100 Wireless Controller. I have visited over 20 sites and can't find a clear description of how this controller operatesspecifically withthe G6.

I will be taking a lot of photos that include me in the shot, and I need to be able to take multiple shots at a time. For this specific need, the self-timer is inadequate, as going back and forth to the camera interferes with what I do. The time-lapse feature is also inadequate, as the minimum increment is too long. RemoteCapture is ruled out because I need mobility.So, the wireless controller is my next option.

These are the things I need to know:

Which modes & settings disable the camera from responding (releasing shutter)to the wireless controller?

Does the controller onlycommand the cam to release the shutter when the camera is in wireless mode?

If so, does the wireless mode switch off after you take 1 shot using the controller, or does the camera remain in wireless mode until you manually switch modes, allowing you to take many shots without having to return to your camera?

If anyone has used the WL-DC100 Wireless Controller with the G6, I would GREATLY appreciate it if you could tell me EXACTLY how it operates.

Thanks.

You can find the manual for the camera here:

Hopefully that will answer your questions.

Thank you very much for that manual... it still wont tell me whether it can shoot multiple shots or whether you have to keep resetting it to wireless over and over. Grr!

Odd, it doesn't address the issue. Okay, well try sending your question to canon technical support. If they cannot answer it, then no one can.
