WiFi on the T

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Well I am a new owner, lovely camera and lenses, just loving the colour renditions and ease of setup and handling, a revelation almost a revolution in ease of use and control.

 

The one fly in the ointment is the WiFi, and the useless T-App (without the WiFi connection, the application will not work) - yes I can use the USB cable or remove the SD card to move the images to my Mac. However with WiFi, It refuses to connect to my iPhone. It refuses to connect to my Mac. It refuses to connect with my Mobile Hotspot. The whole camera freezes with a bottom half of the screen purple. The only way to unlock the camera and take pictures or move them, is to remove the battery, I would rather not have the WiFi option and shall ignore completely this option, so a little disappointed at this, but I have the two other options, USB and SD removal. This should not happen on any expensive camera.

 

Having said that all is not lost because I never successfully connected a Sony A7RII to WiFi either!

 

So if I was Mr Leica, I would either fix the T-App or quietly drop it.

This does not sound like the normal behaviour of that camera. Have it checked by your seller.

I have mentioned it to the Leica shop. To be honest I am not a great fan of WiFi, but also it is extremely useful at times when one does not have a SD reader handy or the cable. These are the only times really when I would use WiFi, so not very often.

 

More important as a new feature in an upcoming firmware update for me would be the ability to add my copyright information writing in the camera. That's one thing the Sony A7 beats the Taifun on.

Hello, I still have the version of 1.41 and wifi connection to app was working perfectly. Today I could not get the camera to connect to my wifi network. Has anyone had the same issue?

As I mentioned in the other forum, I am having problems even with the latest app. 99% of the time, my iPhone doesn't find the camera! 1% of the time, when the two are connected, the iPhone LCD is black, I don't see anything (for shooting)!

 

In other words, so far for me, the T WiFi and the app are garbage!...  109 made by Panasonic worked perfectly well from the first try! ... Maybe the re-branded cameras are not that bad after all!

      Does anyone know of a way to connect the Q2 to a laptop via wifi? It seems like a big oversight not to be able to transfer photos from my Q2 to my phone but not my machine.
      I work in Lightroom for post and would love to save time and steps.
      Thanks all in advance.

      Have connected the camera to my iPhone through the Leica Fotos app. and successfully uploaded some images. Lately, however, the two devices connect, but I am unable to view images in the Fotos app or upload images. Any thoughts/suggestions?

      Hello, first off, just got my first Leica, an M10 the other day and am a new forum member. I look forward to being a member of this group.
       
      I am trying to set up the wifi on the camera. My camera finds tons of neighborhood wifis but not my home wife. Is that normal? I was, however, able to connect my iPhone to the camera). My network is a WEP network not a WPA. However, none of my other wireless devices (Google home, soundbar, etc) have any trouble finding or connecting to it.
       
      Wondering if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks in advance for the help.

      I can connect my M10 to a WiFi network, but I can't see any pictures from my camera in Lightroom's import window. The camera appears in the side panel, but there are no images. I have tried formatting the SD card, and I have tried on several WiFi networks. I have also connected my Mac to the camera's own WLAN, but nothing helps.
       
      Anyone who can help with this? It is not a big deal to put the SD card in the Mac to transfer the files (and probably much faster with many pictures), but at least it would be nice to try out this feature.
