Unable to connect to iPad/iPhone using Panansonic DMC-G7

Postby squawk » Mon Jun 19, 2017 3:38 pm


I've just bought ShutterSnitch today but can't get it talking to my camera at all. Maybe I'm doing something wrong that you can point out.
I've set the Wifi on the camera to "Send Images While Recording" then "Smartphone"
Then I've tried both "Via Network" using my home wifi and "Direct" including the DNS workaround.
In all cases the camera connects to wifi successfully and then shows the "If you have not launched the smartphone application, please launch it....Image App".

Starting Shuttersnitch (on both iphone and ipad) appears to do nothing here. The camera sits at that prompt indefinitely.
Note, starting the image app works fine.

The traffic monitor looks like this.

(this continues until the camera gives up and disconnects).

Any help gratefully appreciated and hopefully I haven't blown £20 on this for nothing.

It sounds like the G7 communicates differently from the older Panasonic cameras I've tested with.

Unfortunately I can't keep buying new cameras each time they change something, so for now I can only say "I guess it doesn't work with the G7". Sorry. If anyone reading along has gotten it to work, please let us know. And if anyone from Panasonic feels like sending me one to test with, let me know. ;)

I'm guessing ShutterSnitch will work with cameras that work with the LUMIX LINK app, but not the "Image App" app.

In the receipt-email you get from Apple, there's a "report an issue" link - if you follow that, you can ask Apple for your money back.

Thanks for the quick reply. Note the G7 isn't new; it's been around for about 2 years - it's akin to the GH4.
It's just been replaced by the new G85.
So I would have thought it would work (it's just another camera in the Lumix range, really).

I guess the other thing to say is that lumix link and lumix remote are obsolete now. They are both replaced by Image App.

It's a pity if Shutter snitch doesn't work - it seems like the ideal solution for me.

I just wanted to add to this specifically in relation to the GX8 which is what I have. I too cannot get Shuttersnitch to connect no matter how many combinations of settings I try. Here is the specific error I get in the traffic monitor:
