User Reviews for FUJIFILM Camera Remote

Amazing imaging but terrible app development

Another month gone by, and another hour long attempt to delete the app, reset pairing settings, and try again to connect. But no such luck. I suppose I’ll try again in a month, but I’m not getting my hopes up. For now, this app is totally worthless except for the remote shutter release. Despite “connecting” via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (confirmed in my iphone settings) the app continues to tell me “failed to connect.” This is so exhausting. If I didn’t have $5000 invested in my Fujifilm equipment I’d probably be a Sony shooter by now. This is my February 2023 update and it’s more frustrating than ever. This app often makes me want to smash my X100V amongst the pavement, but then I breathe deeply and remind myself how much I love the images on the card in the camera. When it works, I’d give the app a solid 4 stars. However, I just don’t know when it will work. Is it magic? Is it operator error? IDK, but it’s 2022, so I feel that it shouldn’t be too hard to make it work. Just last night, I drove 30 minutes and walked 20 to take photos of starts. But I couldn’t get the app to connect! I was still able to use the remote shooting feature. Please Fujifilm, you can fix this app. Your cameras and glass made me fall in love with photography again. Sharing my love will be much easier if you can get this app where it needs to be!

Fuji Almost Had It.

After using this app since 2017 when I got my XT-20, there have been many changes and some are for the worse. I used to be able to change my shutter speed and aperture within the app. Allowing me to use my camera in manual for astrophotography without touching the camera. This is no longer possible. Maybe I am missing something? Either way, this is a really big miss. Also, it would be amazing to be able to use it in landscape mode when recording. Would be an amazing feature to be able to use your phone as a full screen monitor. I miss the old version. I wish I could go back. For what it is though… I am happy with the functionality in automatic for general use. When recording myself or doing small projects it’s nice to be able to use. Please integrate those small fixes if possible Fuji. I would definitely change to a 5 star review if so.

Annoying, but try this.

iOS 14 + this app worked. After iOS 15, no luck. Don’t know if it’s iOS 15 or the Fuji app but try this.. I noticed that after my IOS update, the Fuji app no longer recognized my camera (fully). Live view and transferring pics would not work, but remote shutter would. I happened to notice that even after re-registering the relationship that when I initiated either live view shooting or image transfer that it was attempting to connect to the previous registration/relationship. While it was trying to connect, I then pressed Okay on my X-T3 to switch to the “other” iPhone (which was the same phone, but under a new registration name) and BAM. So my guess is that in my situation, after updating to iOS 15, that something in the iPhones wireless radio registration changed causing the X-T3 to no longer see it. I have restarted both devices to try and bonk it, but they are still working solid. This leads me to think that Bluetooth was still working fine, which is why the Remote Shutter in the app was working, but WiFi, which is required for image transfer and Live View, was not. I have since removed that old iPhone relationship/registration. I have not updated to the Latest Fuji 4.12 firmware yet.

Better than the Reviews

Seeing the rating and reading the reviews had me afraid to download this app! Lol But I had a few photos from a birthday party that I just did not want to plug into my computer and edit in Lightroom then have to save them to my phone to share with my friends. So I downloaded the app as a shot in the dark to see if it’ll save me time. It worked flawlessly!! Lol I just uploaded 76 photos from my XE2s to my iphone 13 pro max without any problems. I honestly think most people are struggling with the connection setup process and blaming the app because they’re not tech savvy, although the instructions are seriously simple for anyone who has connected a camera to wifi before. I’m surprised it works on a camera this old honestly. So grateful that I have this app to save me time and effort on sharing photos!

I see a lot of terrible reviews… I love the app.

It appears others haven’t had the same experience I have had with the app. It’s a little quirky but it works consistently for me. I’ve been using this app for almost 2 years.I think the connection issues other are talking about are user error… I have my camera set to tag every photo for transfer. My phone connects via BT when I turn the camera on and once I turn my camera off I get a notification on my phone to connect to the cameras wifi. (The camera stays on and flashers the led after shutting it off). Once the app connects to the phone the app transfer all the photos I’ve taken. I am currently using a X-E3 and primarily use the app for photo transfer. It works great! I have used the shutter release and that can be a little quirky… but hey. I have a wired shutter release so… Pro tip: to the users who’ve commented on RAW transfer changing to JPG… the app transfer resizes all photos to 3MB max unless you turn that feature off. Option is in…. (setup>connection settings>general settings>resize…smartphone.)

Hot trash after iOS 14 update

This app worked just fine for me for years but ever since I updated to iOS 14, I can’t connect to my X-T3 to transfer images, which I do A LOT, so this is pretty frustrating. I’ve tried everything to remedy it. Deleted and reinstalled the app, re-paired the Bluetooth registrations probably a dozen times, forgot and re-established WiFi settings, and deleted all the Bluetooth registrations in my camera. I’m not even getting the “connect to network” message. The buttons just gray out and it freezes. When I reinstalled the app and assigned my phone a new Bluetooth registration for my camera to connect to, my camera still tries to connect to the old one despite it no longer existing on the camera. Idk how it’s doing that but it is. How can Fuji make such great cameras and completely fall on their face with an app that supposed to work with them? Less than 1.5 stars on 1400 reviews is not a good look. Do better, Fuji..

Turns out Ok.

First time I tried this I gave up after a few attempts. Recently I revisited Cam Remote and admittedly with some patience I successfully linked my iPhone, iPad and X H1 camera. It works reliably for me either as a remote view/shutter release function or transferring selected images. I do not attempt to upload all images automatically. Additionally, because my camera has two SD card slots, one being Raw files I only allow the app to load the jpg images which is very effective. If the app goes to Raw files it slows down and may stop all together. So to summarize, if you want to remotely control and view with the shutter release feature and upload selected jpg images to your phone it’s definitely “Ok”.Update: It just doesn’t work anymore. I really needed to use the wireless remote today and no luck. I cannot figure this out and I’m tired of it. I’m burning this app in a few minutes. I love Fujifilm cameras and lenses but I do a slow burn with this app and just want to forget that it exist.

Not as bad for me

I’ve been wanting to transfer photos from my xt3 to my iPhone since I bought it. I almost downloaded this app a few months back but didn’t because of all the bad reviews. Then recently I read through the reviews again and the sentiment hadn’t changed. But I said screw it and downloaded it anyways. After quickly following the instructions online I changed a few settings on my camera and then paired it with my phone on the first try. Downloading photos was quite easy and fast. It also automatically updated my camera and lens firmware to the latest versions! When I don’t want to pair the two I turn off the Bluetooth setting on my camera so it doesn’t constantly try to download photos. Once you learn the correct steps to transfer photos it works almost every time. And if it doesn’t work I just follow the steps again until it works. It’s not really so difficult. Give it a try!

Good app, could be great

I started using this app the other day with great apprehension do all the terrible reviews listed here. Expecting an app that was poorly formulated and function that was even poorer. However what I ended up with was an app that has every single function that it says it has and performs quite aptly. It does take some time to get used to where everything is located and how everything works but for the most part it makes sense. It does need to have some more work done on the UI design however it gets the job done.It seems to me the many people who have provided this app with poor reviews are ones that have tried to get one thing done could not figure out how to do it. Then they just provided a bad rating and quit trying to accomplish whatever it was they were trying to do. Honestly, many of the things that people struggle with are just poor design choices. The functionality is there somewhere. You just have to find it.

It works and could work great

I use this app because there are no options and it does work. I love my XT-20 and suite of 4 fantastic Fuji X lenses, and I wish Fujifilm would build an app that were as elegant, effortless, and enjoyable as their cameras and lenses are. How might such an app work? First, it would connect via Bluetooth as simply as all other Bluetooth devices do, and it would remain connected until I choose to disconnect by either turning off my camera or by disconnecting on my iPad or iPhone. After connecting the first time, in the future I would see Fujifilm XT-20 listed among my other Bluetooth devices for easy quick selection. Once connected, the app would open automatically on my Apple device to a simple one-touch interface to display its functionality, which functionality already mostly exists in the current app. The only thing that stands between this app and 5 stars is easy connectivity and an intuitive UI. I think the smart people at Fujifilm can do this, if they start with a fresh sheet.
