Important message about the image Sync iOS app.

with the current 2.0.0. version, there were serious bugs
within the app under iOS 12. The app is expected to be
re-released within the next 7-10 days.

The 2.0.1 version still does not support reading from slot 2. As a default setting RAW+ shooters end up with the jpg saved to SD2 and logically it would be the best format for quick sharing by mobile device. Waiting for 2.0.2....

I have tried this App for the first time with an iPhone SE. I wanted to transfer one single picture to my phone and send it out by social media.

The connection with camera wifi was ok, the app detected the camera without any problems. But when I used the function "Cam Images" for transfer, the app started at once to make a preview of the whole SD card ! Hundreds of pictures on a big SD card ! No return within a resonable time !

Is there any possibility to select one folder before starting the preview ? Or to type in just the number of the picture I want to get ? How can I avoid the preview of the whole SD card ?

Did you try the app "Pentax Photo Sync"?

I had an earlier version of the app and it worked fine, but now it will see my camera's wifi but won't connect. Strangely it worked once and then I couldn't get it to work again. I'm using a nexus 5 with android version 6.0.1

I'm not opening a new thread - there's an updated Image Sync, which apparently works (attempting a file transfer didn't crash it).
Oh, I'm using Android - I don't know about iOS.

I've been shooting photos on the iOS version with no difficulty this past week, and I have been able to navigate to SD 2 from the App (which is where my lower rez jpg is being saved) Things seem to be working fine.

Thanks for pointing it out, I hadn't even noticed it! Yes, it seems to work fine on my K70, no crashing when I click on the images (haven't tried downloading yet).
I never even got to put Image Sync through it's paces on the last version because I noticed the crashing immediately.
One thing I'm a little disappointed about is the fact that when viewing the live image on my Android screen I'm not able to zoom in to fine tune focus. Still, the fact that it actually works means I can use the Image Sync app in my own workflow out in the field. I can develop some images and save as JPG on the camera, download to my phone, and post to social media.

New Version 2.0.3. for iOS is online

Works fine with nearly empty SD cards and iOS.


Same old problem with cards containing several hundreds of pictures, no return from loading the preview. Now way for selecting as special folder of SD card and go ahead. Hopefully next version.

I'm surprised. Do the engineers on this app really not understand such a common design pattern as lazy loading?

I'm not. I get the impression that it's interns, not engineers, who've written it. Moreover, ones who have a lot of other stuff to do, no support from UI/UX specialists, and certainly no opportunity to do beta-testing with real users. Bugs do happen, but design flaws like the ones in Image Sync require a significant lack of interest or resource on the part of Ricoh.

I cant understand why it doesn’t have a landscape mode. I have the 13” iPad Pro with a Logitech keyboard case. Spends all its time in landscape mode, but fire up image sync and I have to take it off the keyboard and hold it in portrait mode.
I mean, come on, auto app rotation has been in iOS since the beginning. I’m starting to wonder if the author of this app actually uses it.
