Hi geologic,
Are you saying Wifibooth doesn't work with the X-T30? What doesn't work -- does the camera not connect? or it connects but doesn't take photos?
the camera does not connect to Wifibooth the iPad is properly connected to the camera's wifi

Hi Geologic
Sorry it isn't working for you. Please can you try this for me:
1) make sure wifibooth is not running (ie. kill it, if it is)
2) Open Settings App -> Wifibooth, turn on the switch "Slower camera"
3) Turn off camera, turn back on. Important: when you go to the fuji camera's wifi screen, make sure you hit MENU/OK to forget the last pairing the camera had.
4) Try to connect Wifibooth again

Did that help?

Yes, start with small JPG and see if the quality is sufficient.

Hey Tim,

I´ve got the same problem. Gear I use:

Fuji XT-2 (with DC Adapter)
Ipad Pro 2018
WifiBooth

All the latest firmware versions.

The Problem is that sometimes I can connect and sometimes I can´t. Once they´ve found each other and I turn my camera off, they need to pair completely from scratch and then they won´t connect. I´ve already put hours of research into that problem, but did not find the conclusion or a system behind the error.
After a while I also sometimes get the Error 1001 cascadable.

Here´s what I´ve tried so far:

- formatted SD card with one JPG file
- different iOS devices
- turn everything on and off
- having no wifi nearby (in case of signal errors)
- settings to "slow" camera

It is really a bummer- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn´t. The worst is that I found out about this error on a wedding where I first used the setup (with my freshly built booth) in field. When I tested it at home, everything worked fine (not for such a long use).
According to that, I had close the booth and refund the client his money for the service- not to talk about the immense disappointment...

Finally, here´s my question:
Do you have any tips for me, I haven´t tried so far that may help? I wanted to refund the app via the App Store but unfortunately I can´t since I´ve already "used" it (ha ha). Anyway, at the moment it´s just a 43€ worth piece of trash on my iPad, since I can not use it (sorry for the language but I am really annoyed about this).

Any suggestions for a solution for me?

Thank you very much in advance for your help, I appreciate it!

Best

Moe

Hi Moe
Sorry to hear it isn't working well for you.
I have the Fuji XT-2, and although it can sometimes be a hassle to get the initial connection, it does work well.
If you see the error that you described (cascable error):
1) turn the camera power off
2) kill wifibooth (swipe it away)
3) turn camera power on, go to wifi, important: once you are already on the wifi screen, hit MENU/OK again to clear the last pairing of the camera (even if the last pairing was wifibooth)
4) connect wifi of ipad to camera (settings app)
5) start wifibooth and connect

Also please note this camera can have problems if you use both cards in the camera. If you still have issues make sure you only have one memory card in the camera.

These issues are unfortunately Fuji problems with their firmware, hopefully they fix them one day ...

Hi 😊 I want to purchase the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS to pair with my Apple 10.2-inch iPad (7th Gen) & use it with your app. I saw the SX730 was compatible, but the SX720 isn’t listed. Can you please let me know if it will work?

Thanks so much!

Annie

Hi! Does wifibooth support the Canon EOS M6 Mark II? I am having issues connecting the camera to the app and see that the Canon EOS M6 is supported but the EOS M6 Mark II is not listed. Thanks!

Support for the EOS M6 Mark II is coming soon. If you'd like to be one of the first to try a beta build please send me a private message with your email address.
