Theta V - Bluetooth remote shooting does not work

Postby maxmillian » 05 Oct 2017, 20:22

Hi,

I've connected Theta V to iPhone 7 (iOS11) via Bluetooth and I can see the connection, but I am unable to remote shoot any pictures as the App says "Cannot connect to camera, check the wireless settings" while I can see Connection status: Bluetooth and even the Camera name there.

Am I doing something wrong? Is it supposed to work like that? The documentation suggest yes.

Thanks, Max

Ha, nevermind. Firmware update fixed that and I can use remote shooting via BT now!

Hey, saw your post. I'm having the same issues on Android, only haven't got as far as you.
I really want the ability to just connect to my Theta by bluetooth. Aim is to shoot a series of pictures without burning battery, and I don't really need a preview. My theta V seems not to appear to my phone, and the connection to the ThetaV app seems to be wifi only (which works well, albeit with picture flickering). am running the latest firmware, anyone know a fix?

Ditto. I've successfully connected the Theta V (running the Oct. 24, 2017, Version 1.10.1 firmware) to my Nexus 7 (running Android 6.0.1) via wifi, but I'm unable to get the Bluetooth connection working. My Nexus 7 Bluetooth is enabled (and working with a BT keyboard), and I can confirm that its bluetooth sees other devices. However, selecting the "Turns...

Ohwait. It just successfully turned on the Camera's bluetooth. I might have missed it before, because there is almost no difference in the Theta S app UI once it's turned on. The text "Turn on camera Bluetooth" simply changes to "Turns off camera Bluetooth" (easily misread as being unchanged), and the "Connection" status changes from "Wifi" to "Wifi & Bluetooth", which is also easily missed. I may have just missed it before, and I'm posting this here because others may also be missing it in the same fashion. It's not immediately obvious, once the app is successfully connected to the camera via Bluetooth. That is, there is no obvious, unmissable notification that Bluetooth is connected to the camera.

Hello there,
I have the same problem from a Theta S bought in Birmingham too..
It just won't connect to wifi. I tried iPhone, Android (HTC and Lenovo), Laptop, etc.. never connected once!
I followed the exact way to connect (THETAXS####OSC), then it tries to connect but fails and gives me "Connection failed", "Incorrect Password", etc..
Best regards, Rosa

Rosa, so the devs (or someone) might be able to offer assistance, I suggest confirming exactly what SSID and password you are using for your camera, and confirming what the information printed on the camera says, so that it can be confirmed you're using the correct SSID and password for your camera. Once those are confirmed, one could potentially try to identify other reasons for the connection failures.

It may be worth noting that since this time, my Nexus 7 (running Android 6.0.1) has been unable to reconnect to my Theta V via bluetooth. I can connect via wifi just fine, but bluetooth does not successfully connect. I've tried lots of things (restarting camera both the camera and PC, changing various settings, trying to "pair" the devices manually, etc.) but I've not been able to find a way for the two devices to reconnect. It worked once, and not again. /shrug. I'll try a different device (an iPad) sometime, to see if I can get that to work over BT.

Hi,
Nothing strange if Theta S doesn't work for you. Even I faced this.

It always show "Connection failed", "Incorrect Password", etc.errors while trying to connect no matter what is the device,

I got to the support and they didn't reply well.

Don't know what to do.

Just worked out how to link my bluetooth to the theta v.

Once you have turned it on, you actually dont need to pair it. It does this in the app. You can go to the settings in the app to see that it says connected.

I spent ages trying to pair it believing it hadnt connect when it actually had.

I certainly put the Bluetooth to be lively on the camera, I still saying a Bluetooth device for an at the same time as, other than might never couple it by means of my Smartphone. I try to get in touch with the holdup but they haven't replied yet.

You could use a Bluetooth enabled smartphone for faraway shooting and switching of the image shown. ....Essay Help UK If the connection isn't mounted, preserve the devices collectively until the digital camera screen is updated.

I've just managed to connect Theta V to my HTC One. I've tried multiple times doing the same via Bluetooth but it just wouldn't connect. I've spend like 3 hours trying to figure out how to make it work.
After doing some research I've finally found the way to connect them via Bluetooth. Just launch the app with wifi off, bluetooth on and you'll see it connect tothe camera. Cheers, Your PianoDreamer

I have been reading this thread and is it really a pain in the a**? I mean why then so many peoples are using it if we have so many problems with it. Also, why there is not awareness of it?

Feeling little confused.

If any expert can look into this.

Rachel.

've just figured out how to associate Theta V to my HTC One. I've attempted numerous circumstances doing likewise by means of Bluetooth however it just wouldn't associate.
spaze apparel I've spend like 3 hours attempting to make sense of how to influence it to function.

Subsequent to doing some examination I've at long last discovered the best approach to interface them through Bluetooth. Simply dispatch the application with wifi off, bluetooth on and you'll see it associate tothe camera.

The bluetooth API is documented, but doesn’t come with detailed examples. A better strategy is to find an existing Android App that works with a bluetooth shutter and see if it works without modification. The Android app that came with your low-cost bluetooth trigger may work with on the THETA V without modification if it doesn’t work a user to press a button after the app starts. See some tests below with unmodified Android apps. To put a standard Android App, select it as the default plug-in using the desktop app, then put the camera into plug-in mode with the lower mode button.

Hi,
Many people were facing the same problem no worry here I explain you to how can you get the successful connection with "Theta V"
1. Turn on Theta V Bluetooth, Turn on wifi then you can see Theta show up connection in the phone.
In case, your device show this error
"Wifi" (Turn off) the device shows up as it's a serial number, tried to connect, failed
No worry,
you have to restart your phone and repeat my first process you can make a connection successfully cool 8-)
