I recently picked up a FujiFilm X-T20; first time I’ve had a Fuji. In general, I’m really enjoying the camera so far, but I don’t have a remote release for it yet.
I installed the FujiFilm Camera Remote app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fujifilm_dsc.app.remoteshooter&hl=en), thinking that it might be a useful remote release with some additional functionality, but when I fired it up I discovered that it flatly refuses to operate unless location services are turned on in the phone. For me, that’s simply not happening, for any app, any time. Granted, the app includes geotagging, but much of what it claims to do does does not require location access.
I know there are several Fuji shooters here. Has anyone here found a way to circumvent, or otherwise make ineffective, the location requirement with this app?
There may be some good news on the horizon. Google appears to be clamping down on gratuitous slurping of location data by apps that don’t need it:
