I swear I read somewhere people were using their iPhone or ipad with the 6d as a remote via wifi. I've done your setup and had my camera pointed at a bird bath and used my wireless remote to take photos of birds without scaring them off. But I would like to be able to live view on my ipad or iPhone and control settings remotely via an app.

The 6D absolutely has WiFi built in

Many other cameras dating back years can use the WFT transmitters, though they are pricey and often not intuitive. Cameras with Ethernet ports like the 1DX can eve be used with very cheap wireless accesories.

Can't you do that with the 6D?
There's not much range on the little canon remote, plus you have to be in front of the camera. It's nice to stay hidden, 30 or 40 feet away, and be able to see what the lens sees.... You should be able to do anything over wireless that you can do tethered, plus using the tablet to do intervals, trigger on sound, changes in exposure, movement......

He's not talking about the Canon remote shutter, he's talking about the 6D's integrated Wi-Fi. Canon has released an app for Apple and Android devices called EOS Remote, which can remotely control the 6D completely from the phone.

6D wireless works very well with Canon's EOS Remote app on my Android phone - I assume the iPhone app works as well.

For my needs and wants, a 7DII must offer two things over the current model:
Iso noise which is a lot better (I'm talking about a huge disparity between a 5DII and 7D) and the general per pixel image quality. When compared to the output from a 5DII/III the 7D was often left wanting. The rest of the original 7D is still very competitive and very usable...but anything over Iso 400 wasn't for me.
I loved the AF system, the 8fps, the handling, everything except the sensor...the most un-Canon camera Canon have made!
