Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Can’t count the times I’ve used this app during shoots. So handy & reliable... that means a lot when the camera is mounted on a crawler. I’m about to buy a new rig... staying with Lumix on the strength of the remote control app ( ok, nice glass as well)
No longer works
This great app worked until a recent upgrade or perhaps it isn’t iOS 14 compatible. In any event images no longer transfer from the camera to my iPad...
Can’t transfer any RAW files
I’ve taken hundreds of pictures that I would like to transfer to my phone but apparently the image app won’t let me download RAW Images to my iphone SE (2) so half of the usefulness of this app is automatically void. Disappointing.
