And here comes my curiosity: I recently started using the Camera Remote App to update my cameras, and I find it so comfortable, that I was wondering if anyone else is using it. Hence, down below is a little survey where you can tell us if you use the App or go old-style via SD-card.
The Fuji Guys published a short video, where they talk about the Fujifilm camera remote App.
They say this video is for those, who download the App for the first time or if you are having any troubles with the App itself.
The issues can happen for example if you updated your smartphone.
In this case, the Fuji Guys recommend to delete the App as well as to delete the pairing registration in your camera menu connection settings.
Then download the Fujifilm Camera Remote App again and pair camera and smartphone again.
When you try to transfer images on your phone, the camera might ask you to start up the Fujifilm camera remote App. If the camera does not connect to the smartphone, click “Change – OK” on the camera.
Why this? Francis says:
because if you use the camera on your iPad and on your iPhone, you need to change the registration for which device is going to be using
Done that, click on “join name of your camera wifi network” and wait for the camera and phone to connect.
In my experience this works sometimes to get things going, but not always. Sometimes I can try whatever I want, and it does not connect. Usually I fix it by getting a beer, waiting a while, and try again. Sometimes that works!
