Ratings and Reviews
I am very disappointed with this app. I hoped that a Leica app would be reliable and efficient. I have spent literally hours over weeks trying to get this to install and function. Sometimes it gets part of the way there , the app says it has paired and blue light on D-Lux 7 lights up, but it then says it cannot connect, do I want to retry? That goes nowhere. I searched online, found some suggestions ( delete app and reinstall, etc.). Sometimes that will work, but then next time it is again a mess.
It takes several minutes if I am lucky and it connects. This is pointless, as who can fiddle around for several minutes when they want to take a picture.
I wish Leica had both used the Panasonic LX100 II raw format (another struggle to get software which recognizes it), and used a clone of the Panasonic remote app, which works flawlessly on my G9.
Slow as molasses...
Love my Q! This app - not so much. It’s all just so slow - from the time it takes all the photos to load on the preview page to their download...slow slow slow. I’ve figured out if I let all my pics load in the preview section first and then DL them, it’s a little faster to DL them. But getting that preview page to load. Ugh. I’ve shot 600 pics today, and in the time it’s taken to for the preview page to load, I’ve made a phone call, written this review, gone to the bathroom, and made myself a snack. No joke.
Still not good
I love my Leica Q but this app is a big disappointment for me.
The control is ok for the now and again need for remote shutter and such, but not a big improvement over the old app.
The biggest disappointment is in file transfers. I was really looking forward to transferring raw dng files wirelessly, and out of 8 attempts to download I have one successful transfer. The other 7 attempts either caused the app to hang forever or the Wifi dropped altogether because the transfer was soooo slow. I won’t be using this app.
Unfortunately, still the only way to get raw files onto the iPhone or iPad direct is through the SD card reader. Oh well.
I played around with the app a bit more and it seems to work better. Whenever I got the hanging experience, I just disconnect and reconnect the wifi and it seems to remedy the issue.
One request— manual focus in remote control mode would be nice. When shooting long exposure shots of the night sky etc, the app doesn’t seem to allow manual focus and forces autofocus whether the focus ring is on manual mode or not. I’d like to be able to set it to infinity for that purpose.
Updated to 3 stars.
