Ratings and Reviews
Good but tricky
If the app connected to the phone and camera in a more proactive manner, It would be so nice. But I’m struggling every time to get the three synced. The wording is often confusing and lacks meaning of what it’s trying to say. It’s not very intuitive to the new user at all. I wish it functioned more like apple earbuds connecting to your iPhone but it’s more like setting up a home entertainment system in the 90s.
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
Panasonic should be ashamed of this app
Hello. 1950 calling. They want their app back!
Okay for a corporation as huge as Panasonic and designed for a camera range that starts at over $2500, this app is a joke.
If you have the patience of a saint and 45 minutes to waste you might be able to get the app to connect to your iOS device.
On my iPad i quickly found that the connection process only works in portrait mode although once (and if) connected you can use the rest of the app in landscape. This implies to me that a different incompetent wrote the setup program...
There is so much wrong with this app that I will just get to the point.
Please Panasonic hire a six year old to write you a new program, even a room filled with monkeys banging on keyboards could do better than this. This app is an embarrassment to your brand and for anyone counting on having a remote app this should be a deal breaker.
Verdict: terrible terrible terrible
On a scale of 1-10 I rate this app a 0
