WiFi - Everything you need to know!
For iPhone users, the WiFi Manager may not be needed since going to Settings>WiFi> and picking the X-T1 is quick and easy. With some Android devices I have found that getting to the settings tab and digging through to reach the WiFi settings may be a bit troublesome. If you are currently located in a highly congested WiFi metropolitan area, an app that can help you manage your WiFi connections will be handy no matter what Smartphone you have.
PREPARATION-SETTING UP Camera
NOTE: The camera name can be changed using the WIRELESS SETTING > GENERAL SETTINGS > NAME option in the camera setup menu.
- First turn on your camera and press the WiFi button or whatever Fn button you have assigned, otherwise start it from within the cameras Menu. The WiFi icon will start flashing while the search is on.
- On your Smartphone go to your WiFi manager, deselect any other network you were using and now select the X-T1 or whatever other WiFi capable X camera you are using. Exit the WiFi manager and launch the Fujifilm “Camera Remote” app.
- iPhone: If you are using an iPhone, the process is more automated since it will bypass the green Connect button and connect without even needing to press the OK button on the camera.
- Android: On the other hand, with an Android, you'll need to depress the green Connect button and then keep an eye out on the rear LCD screen on the camera for confirmation that it has found your Smartphone. As soon as your smartphones name appears, tap the OK button on the rear of the camera. NOTE: If the correct device is not displayed, press DISP/BACK and try connecting again.
- Once the connection is established, the LCD on the camera will switch off (turns black). At the same time your Smartphone will show the cameras live view feed. Now you are set to go.
- With the exception of the ON/OFF button, camera controls are disabled during the wireless connection. Sometimes if the signal is dropped or the wireless connection is otherwise disrupted the camera may fail to turn off on its own or freeze. In such a situation, turn the camera off and then on again.
- To end the connection, on your camera press DISP/BACK or on your Smartphone tap the left arrow button to exit the Receive tool. A confirmation dialog is displayed to prevent accidental exiting.
1) Close Camera Remote and return to main menu
2) Tap anywhere in the frame to focus.
3) Depending on what exposure mode the camera is set to, you will get access to the corresponding adjustments. For instance in Manual you get to choose Aperture and Shutter while in Program you get to choose only Exposure Compensation. Tap the center title to choose a control and tap the left or right arrows to adjust its values..
4) The shooting menu will give you access to such things as ISO, Film sim, WB and others.
5) Shutter button
6) Tap this to get access to the most recently selected menu item from the shooting menu.
7) Tap the Play button to view the pictures on your Smartphone.
8) Slide the red button to switch between photo and movie modes.
Connect your Smartphone and camera like before, and at the main menu select the RECEIVE tab. Once connected, scroll through your images and when you find the one you want, just hit the OK button. After a few seconds, the upload will be complete and the image will show on your Smartphone. Additional pictures can be uploaded just by selecting another image on the rear LCD and pressing the MENU/OK button to start the upload.
To end the connection, on your camera press DISP/BACK or on your Smartphone tap the left arrow button to exit the Receive tool.
Connect your Smartphone and camera like before, and at the main menu select the BROWSE CAMERA tab. Once connected, scroll through your images and select images by checking them for download. Images marked with a question mark “?” will not be downloaded. To view and download images one at a time, tap the magnifier icon.
The connection terminates automatically when you exit the Smartphone browser. Tap Exit to close the browser window.
NOTE: Under MOVIE MODE>MOVIE SET-UP it is recommended to choose HD (1280×720) or a smaller size when using the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. This will ensure better comparability.
Connect your Smartphone and camera like before, and at the main menu select the GEOTAGGING tab. Once a connection is established, you will see SEARCHING COMPLETED on the LCD of the camera. On your Smartphone select START. If you are using an iPhone or iPads the transfer begins automatically once the connection has been established. If successful, you will see "Location data upload complete".
The connection to the iPhone will end automatically when location data upload is complete. On an Android device you will have to terminate it manually.
NOTE: To add location data to pictures, select ON for GEOTAGGING SET-UP>GEOTAGGING in the setup menu (if the location info icon flashes in the camera display, the location data may be out of date; update location data before proceeding). To view location data on the camera, select ON for GEOTAGGING SET-UP>LOCATION INFO in the setup menu. During playback, location data are shown for a few seconds each time a picture with location data is displayed.
