Ratings and Reviews
Nice program, could be better
This has a lot of wonderful modern camera connection in it. I have had a complaint for years that high-end cameras do not have the connectivity or convenience of cell phone cameras. This does a lot to address it.
The really cool parts are the remote feature which even lets you look at what the viewfinder is seeing. I highly approve.
Less good is sheer connectivity. I would like automatic download from the camera into local and cloud storage.
This is so much better than use in the past, and I hope for more and more features.
A complete disaster of an app
If this app actually worked as intended, it would be superb.
Unfortunately the connectivity issues mean that it’s barely useable.
Once you finally manage to get it to connect to your camera (after the 20th attempt, and after rebooting the iPad and the camera in turn, multiple times, and redownloading the app for the 5th time), it is inexplicably slow, with data transfer speeds that would have been laughable in the late nineties.
If you want to transfer multiple photos (20 or more .dng’s) then make sure you don’t need the camera or the iPad for anything else for the next few hours. It connects via its own WiFi network so if you try and use another app on the iPad you’ll lose the connection. And sometimes it just randomly loses the connection anyway. If this happens, you won’t be able to reconnect to the camera until you’ve rebooted the camera and the iPad.
In summary: this app is a complete disaster. Save your $50.
LEICA has listened.
When this first launched, I like so many loyal customers were so put off at having to purchase an app to get full functionality of our cameras, But after a year Leica has come to its senses and has listened to its customers. Thank you LECIA .. keep up the innovations.
