Image Sync - no live view

Update to my post above:

Both K-S2 cameras show live view on the iPhone Image Sync app.

Neither of them show live view on the app on several android devices, the icon is always greyed out, even though the remote control functions work OK.

My conclusion - the Android Image Sync app is broken on some Android versions. All the phones and tablets we've tried have been Android 5.1 upwards, with a Nexus 5 running Android 6.0

Redimp, if I can help to get this working in any way, in collaboration with you/Ricoh, please let me know.

Thanks, I had the same problem the next night.

Went to a local reservoir with my daughter to get a good shot at 23:30 when the next high pass was due.

I was looking for the glow from the city in the west about 20 miles away + a little thin cloud to get the colour + reflections in the water + a nice long trail in a portrait shot.

There was too much cloud and I got cocky thinking that I could estimate where the ISS trail would be in the shot. In fact I got it just passing out of shot in the top left corner.

A rubbish picture, but at least I got to appreciate the quietness, my daughter's company, the clouds of bats coming to look at us and the sounds of all the little animals (critters ;) ) around us in the dark.

Also good points, thanks.

This is a big gig for her BF as he's been asked to guest for a bigger, more well known local band. Having said that they're usually pretty close quarters venues and they'll have VIP armbands so I think she''l have no problem getting close to the action.

I'll remind her that the band will be hoping to see more than just their guest singer in the shots though :D

I'm thinking that, rather than a bag full of different lenses, she may be better off just using the kit 18-55 and employing a couple of the techniques suggested.

So, some auto focus, and some manual. Centre weighted metering with a bit of -Ev. Keep shutter speed up (Tv and TAv) and don't be too scared of highish ISO.

@kcobain, thanks, if it was me shooting I'd go for the fully manual fixed exposure option and just concentrate on the focus, that's one of the reasons I suggested TAv as it allows her to fix the shutter speed and aperture and not have to worry about them. I guess any noise in the high ISO exposures will just look like spit, and there's usually plenty of that flying around at these gigs ;) :lol:

I'll post a couple of her results if she'll let me.
