Connecting to a printer and printing via Wi-Fi (PowerShot G9 X)

Solution

You can connect your camera to a printer and print using Wi-Fi.
When establishing a wireless connection with a printer, you can either use the camera as an access point (Camera Access Point Mode) or use another access point.
