Please Remove Unnecessary Pop-Ups!!!
I LOVE this app, and I LOVE my Lumix S1H, but… there’s a HUGE issue where a dialogue pop up box saying “Recording stopped because the camera is busy” when we start and stop recording. We DON’T NEED THAT! And it doesn’t go away until you touch the phone, that’s crazy! Sometimes I have to use my nose to get it to go away, as my hands are busy… ya know using a camera! How has no one at Panasonic thought this was a problem? So strange! Keep up the good work though, as this app is soo close to being AMAZING!
Wi-Fi connection issues
The connection between my iPhone 11, iPhone 13, iPad mini 4 and the camera/app (S5) is spotty at best. I’m a real estate photographer and rely on this process. I rely on it as much as I rely on the Lumix ecosystem and it may result in me leaving for a different system. I have to work fast and having this issue results in a lot of time lost on site.
Sometimes it takes me 20 minutes to establish a connection. I restart the camera first and that usually fixes it. If that doesn’t resolve it I restart the phone and that fixes it. I also find the range inconsistent. I will have direct line of sight 20 feet away and when I trigger a shot, it can take 20 seconds for that to occur. I know Wi-Fi inference is a thing but my godox flash system has 0 issues communicating with between the remote and flash units and those use wifi as well. I’ve been looking for alternative wireless trigger devices and there doesn’t appear to be any for Lumix cameras.
The best of the market
I have recently tested and compared the Nikon, Sony and Leica apps to this new Lumix app, and the Leica and Lumix are the two that are reliable and most stable. Read the comments here, the users who rate it 1 Star, don’t even noticed this is ONLY for the Lumix S1 camera series... i use it to do geotagging from my iPhone without the battery draining issue I had with my Nikon (850 and Z7). I use it to transfer raw files to Lightroom mobile on my iPad Pro. Yes, the 250+ Mpix high resolutions raw files transfer like a charm to my tablet! Amazing Panasonic! Thanks
