Some ImageSync questions

when using imagesync I'm only seeing Raw images and not the jpgs. So imagesync is only looking at card1. On the camera, under Memory Card Options there is a Card Slot Sequence option. I change that from 1 to 2 but it doesn't effect what imagesync sees. My questions 1) What does Card Slot Sequence do? and 2) Is there a way for ImageSync to see Card2?

Never mind about the ImageSync question. I found there is a little box in the top right, and when you click it, it toggles to Card2.

ImageSync is not very reliable with Bluetooth. Once it disconnects it hard to get reconnected and it ends up switching to wifi. I have to restart the camera and on the phone turn Bluetooth off and on to get it to connect again.

I've only ever used it with Wifi, per the usage instructions. I did not realise bluetooth was even an option.

I have zero problems with Bluetooth connections between my iPhone 8 and my K-3 iii. I only ever turn on WiFi to use the remote control with live view on my phone. (I havenít had a good reason to transfer images to my phone in the field yet, which would be faster over WiFi for raw files.)

Indeed, yes. I wonder if somehow the app "prefers" wifi to bluetooth?

The bluetooth being used is low power and I suspect that means limited distance.

As I understand it Bluetooth is for maintaining the connection, communicating, and starting up WiFi on demand. Bluetooth is not for the actual transfer itself as its to slow.

Switching to WiFi is expected and intended if it happens when you transfer.

yes, and that appears to be what's happening. That's fine, as I don't really use ImageSync for transferring much. I did notice that wifi transfer is very fast, like 5-7 secs per image. On the K-70 it was more like 30 secs per image.
