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.☹️

Well the GPS now records correctly for the M11. There are still issues with FOTOS maintaining a connection with the M11 when walking through the woods taking photographs. Getting either the M10-R or the M11 connected to FOTOS to download images is still not as reliable as one might like.

Great… until it stopped working

The app was great for the 2 years I used it until 6 months ago Leica did an update to the app and now it’s unusable for me. The update did bring some nice features that had been requested by users but with the compromise of the reliability and stability of the app. For me I can’t transfer more than 3 photos to my phone without the app freezing and sometimes crashing. What used to take a few minutes to transfer photos now takes a few hours. I’m one who would prefer to get the image right in camera, and I love how the Leica JPEGs look. Sure I can transfer the photos to my computer and back to my phone, but it sort of defeats the purpose for having this app. I’ve been in contact with Leica support for months now and no one from the company has been able to do anything to fix this problem. I have followed all of their suggestions and nothing has worked. Well I haven’t tried the latest suggestion, which was to delete all the Leica photos from the Leica gallery and storage on my phone. To me that’s an unacceptable suggestion to solve the problem. Please Leica fix your app. Your cameras are so great, but the software side of things is very unreliable and unacceptable for a company as yours.
