UPDATE! Please read if you have issues!

If you have issues with staying connected via the Fotos app, and more so, viewing and transferring images to your phone, please keep reading.

If your SD card was formerly formatted by another camera besides the M11 (especially another brand with different file and folder structure), you need to format your SD card with the M11! This resolved ALL my issues with wireless connectivity and image transfer. I’m giving the app 4 stars as there are still a few small nagging “glitches” with the app, but nothing that greatly affects functionality.

Needs more flexibility…

The new version 3.3.1 still applies the wrong sign to GPS locations in North America, causing them to look like they are in the Indian Ocean.

The new version 3.3.0 applies the wrong sign to previously recorded images’ GPS locations from my M10-R Visoflex. After testing, with the latest M10-R firmware, the problem still exists. Which then moves geolocations from the mid Atlantic States to the Western Indian Ocean. I have the same GPS problem with the M11 getting data from my iPhone. This should be a quick fix.

This is a problem with Fotos. For downloading from the camera to the iPad or iPhone it works well. It is more reliable and easier to establish a connection than connecting a Nikon camera with the Nikon SnapBridge app. However, you cannot direct the images to a particular folder. The storage in the iPhone and iPad is limited, so it would be nice if one could download the images to a selected folder on an attached storage device like the LaCie SSD drive. It still doesn’t allow one to GPS stamp ones images at time of capture on the M11 while it is connected with one’s iPhone; as it was advertised it would before the camera’s release.☹️

Guess I’ll try again...

This app has not worked properly or reliably since I purchased my M10 a year ago. Lately it just freezes on the black screen with the Leica logo in the middle. My camera says it’s connected but the app just sits there. The red dot reminds me of HAL from 2001, staring at me, waiting, plotting maybe? I’d like to use it once in a while as a remote way to view when shooting from the hip or over my head. It’s not a necessity but I would like to at least try it for f$&ks sake. Good thing I went with the m10 as I was planning on the M10-d and was going to use the app often to check my exposures and view what I shot when I take my mid day break. Who am I kidding, I still wish I would have skipped a month of meals and paying my bills on time and gone with the M10-d. I’m a poor man, sold my car and Fuji gear for the M10,as a serious illness leaves the true rangefinder as my only option for professional quality cameras. Just fix the app as it’s me and the M 10 for the rest of my life unless some cash decides to fall from the sky and into my wallet. I’m proud to be the worlds poorest Leica shooter.
