ShutterSnitch and ethernet connection

Hi, I’m Roberto, photographer in Milan, Italy, I’had already asked You some months ago if it was possible to connect my Canon 1Dx Mk2 with the iPad Pro with a ethernet cable instead of with Wi-fi. You replied me that at that time it was not possible but now a friend of mine who works for an important photography agency told me that now it is possible. Is it true?
Thanks.

Your previous question was about importing via a USB cable, which is not supported.

If you connect your iOS device to your camera via an Ethernet cable that’s another story. As long as the communication happens over a TCP network there’s a chance it’ll work. I don’t have a 1Dx Mk2 but since your friend says it’s possible maybe they can help you set it up?

No, my friend can’t help me. But can I give an IP address (not wi-fi) to ShutterSnitch?

Hi, Brega, you most certainly can get an Ethernet-only connection to work with ShutterSnitch. I can walk you through the cabling tricks required, and if you shoot Nikon I can help you with the settings as well. I also teach networking at a university, so hopefully can eliminate any clouds around addressing and such. I use my setup to post a few branded images during sports events to a dropbox folder that is monitored by/shared with the sports communications directors at games that they can attach to their tweets live. It's a learning curve and I'm sad to say the documentation is just nonexistent / unhelpful, but it works. I shoot with Nikon D5s with built-in Ethernet.
