Leica Fotos vs 1.3.1

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I'd like to hold Leica to a standard of getting Fotos controls to work as well as Panasonic's for the basic operations of time reference, GPS, remote trigger, and uploading images.  Leica has the advantage of not having to do everything someone has ever told them was needed, only "the essentials," so this ought to be a reasonable goal.  I took my S1R out for an hour's walk this afternoon.  Before leaving I started Synch on my(Android) phone, without initiating either remote operation or picture review, just getting the BT-LE connection going.  I put the phone in a pocket once the display on the S1R showed BT and GPS alive.  It never showed any WiFi, which was fine.  All of my shots were accurately geo-tagged.  One tradeoff that the Lumix made is that the display stayed on for the whole hour, so keeping the BT connection alive and the geodata fresh apparently prevents going into standby mode after two minutes.  But I had only used about 20-30% of the battery's capacity in the hour with 40+ shots taken.

Thanks for posting, Scott!

If Panasonic can make it work, what's the holdup with Leica? (Rhetorical question)
