Transfer existing photos via wifi?


Recommended Posts

I'm new to the Q. My experiences so far have been positive, but I'm confounded by the wifi image transfer behavior.

 

It seems that there are two modes:

  1. Remote Control
  2. Backup

Great, this makes sense and mirrors what I expect: one mode is tethered control over a remote camera, the other lets you just download photos from it.

 

Every similar thing I've seen allows selection of photos from the existing roll in "Backup" or equivalent mode, for example using the app to pick and choose which already-shot photos to transfer to the phone. The Leica app, meanwhile, only seems capable of transferring shots taken while the camera is actively connected to the app in backup mode.

 

Is this true?

 

This is a bizarre limitation, and doesn't fit what I assume to be the common model of shooting un-tethered, then periodically squirting a few shots over to the phone to tweak or share while on the go.

 

Pointers to an obvious setting I'm missing—or confirmation that I'm not crazy—welcome.

 

Thanks!

they are full resolution, but only JPEG.   I use a variety of free apps on my iPad to create very presentable images. 

Also consider that your phone or tablet is able to back up these images to cloud storage and can be brought back to laptops etc later.  .  Lots of flexibility.

Cloud storage is preferred in these days. very convenient to browser them on different devices.

If you are in Remote Control mode you can see your images.  There is a download button that will transfer images you want to your camera roll and you can pick them from there using Photos, Lightroom Mobile, etc.  JPEGs only and I'm not sure of the resolution.

The resolution is slighted decreased after transfer.

      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?

      With my Leica M9 I just whip out the SD card, put it into the slot, select the picture file and upload it to the desktop. Couldn’t be simpler.
        But trying to do the same with the iPhone is problematic. I hooked up a USB cable, and the iMac didn’t recognize it. I had to hunt around and then could only open pictures in Photos. I just want the photos on the desktop. Yes, I can also use airdrop but you have to do them picture by picture, which is slow.    I seldom do this, but want to help a friend load her iPhone pictures (several thousand from a European trip!) onto her laptop (possibly a Widows machine). So what’s the best way to do it?

      I had connectivity problems with my Leica T and the iPhone app. Leica TL.
      I now have the TL2 and it still won't connect to my camera. I discarded the TL
      app. and re-installed. Its still won't pair. My little DXO One pairs just fine with 
      the DXO One app. on the same iPhone. Why can't Leica do it right? The iPhone
      pairing is not something I will do frequently, but it would be nice if it were available
      when I do want to use it.
       
      Is anyone else having this problem, and if so, has anyone solved it? If so, please help.
