Hi, it would be wonderful if you could revisit the task of doing a arm64 version.
Your app is great, but unfortunately after upgrading my hardware to a 64bit version I cant use it.
I did try to build it myself and offer a PR, but lack of knowkedge about Go caused that edforr to fail so far.

Yeah, I saw your fork last week. I'm not really sure if even I would be able to build it with the latest SDK. I'm thinking about rewriting it in Rust, as it is better supported in SFOS.

Hi, will an aarch64 build be available

bundyo's picture

Yes, at some point. Don't have the 64bit SDK up and running yet.

Thank you for the wonderfull app! It works very well for my XA2 except for the download of the content from the camera (Olympus TG5). I believe the download does not work due to a recent change of name of the homefolder from /home/nemo to /home/defaultuser for all users (or custom names if someone actually configures a multiuser telefon since SFOS 4.0). I hope for an updated version!

bundyo's picture

Yes, that might be the problem. I'm not sure I can do a fixed build soon, but meanwhile you can just create a symlink from nemo to defaultuser in your home repo.

You need to enable developer mode, then run Terminal, in it run devel-su, enter the developer mode password, then ln -s /home/defaultuser /home/nemo and close it.

This should help.

Yippie, it works! I can now download content from my Camera.
Thank you so much. :)

Wonderful app, thank you very much for this.

Would it be at all possible to do a similar app for Sony ActionCam?

bundyo's picture

I'm waiting for Qt 5.9 update to start a rewrite and I actually own an RX100VI camera too, so I might take a look into this.

Works 100% with the Olympus OMD10 MkII
Would it be possible to make the preview thumbnails larger?
Thanks for a great app.

can you add support for Canon EOS 6D? I guess the protocol to communicate with the camera is similar, if not the same - ptp.

Works fine with Olympus OM-D E-M5 II. I tried to run the Android app first, which did not work, and was glad to find this!

I would love Live View!

Wohoo, thanks for this app right before my travelling to Asia. :)

Are you thinking about sharing the code? I also started writing this app by developing a desktop version first.

bundyo's picture

Sorry, I somehow expected everyone to come from :) The code is already available, pull requests are welcome.

P.S. I was planning to try doing LiveView next when I have a bit more time.

Thanks for the app!

I can confirm, that it als works with the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-3.

Now, I am able to download and take pictures on my Jolla, as the Olympus Android app is not working.

The first download didn't crash the app with the today (10.05.2016) installed version (About screen shows app version 0.1.1).

bundyo's picture

Thanks for testing. Didn't expect it to run with the TG-3, but I guess it has to be expected that Olympus reused their own protocol.

The first crash bug was fixed, but I failed to update the changelog properly :)

Thanks for this app, tested it with my OM-D E-M10, and it works nicely with my tablet and my Jolla Phone. I had one crash on the first attempt to download the pictures from the Camera, but couldn't reproduce it.

bundyo's picture

Thanks for testing, I think I can reproduce it :)
