    I would say I am extremely computer savvy, and I am surprised this isn't as easy as it should be. I did get it figured out, but it was not easy.

    Not sure how I missed this but yeah it's a pain. I wish it was bluetooth not wifi.

    Hi runnah. How is Maine treating you. Yes, the wi-fi is kinda pointless.

    Maine is awesome this time of year.

    It is very pointless. It's a gimmick that is more of a selling point than a functional piece of tech. Maybe in a couple years they will have the bugs worked out.

    I had a friend who had one at a wedding shoot and he tried forever to get the thing to connect to his ipad with no avail.

    The only thing I've seen someone use the wifi for that I thought was pretty cool was using their smartphone as a wireless remote shutter.
