Software & Accessories / Just updated EOS Remote for 6d to 1.1
« on: July 11, 2013, 12:35:18 PM »
Is it a bit quicker in both remote shooting and viewing images cause it seems like it is for me when I updated to 1.1. I might be crazy? Did you notice anything?

 I use it once in awhile, but stopped cause I felt it was really slow all around. But now it seems decent. I'm using an iPhone 5.

I knew I saw a battery thread, but couldn't find it.

The Zeikos battery came with my 6d package. I tried charging it with the canon charger when I first opened it. It was blinking slow for 20 seconds, then started to blink fast. I charged it for a about 4 hours just to see if it worked. The battery lasted for only 50 shots. Then tried to charge it again for a few hours. After a few hours of charging, it didn't work.

I contacted Beach Camera, they sent me a new one real quick. The same thing happened.

After reading a few threads, I found that aftermarket batteries and canon chargers don't mingle well.

So I bought a cheap Opteka charger on amazon just to see if it can charge the Zeikos battery. It did, and now I can use it on the 6d.

Hope this helps anyone with same issue.
