Ratings and Reviews
This app has a lot of the same issues the Leica M app does. It takes too many steps to connect the camera, especially when the camera has already been connected to this app. If the connection is lost, it’s a laborious process to go back and re-connect, when it should be automatic. Photos are not cached, so if the connection is lost everything needs to be reloaded. It would be nice to be able to use this as an alternative to wired tethering, but that’s not realistic, given the limitations of the program.
Works great, one big flaw
The app is easy to connect to the camera and works great... except (and I hope you read this Leica) you cannot zoom in during the live view for critical focus like you can on the camera. It will, however, display the zoom if you manually apply it with the camera joystick, but that involves the camera again, somewhat defeating the purpose.
Doesn’t Stay Connected
Connects and then freezes. Contacted Leica and was told to wait for update. It’s been months since.
