Thanks Craig. I could indeed load the images from the camera to my phone when I’m at home: I assume these images (if the Theta app works correctly) will have the correct GPS metadata?
I can find no information regarding submission to SV using a web browser - everything I read says “use the SV app on your phone” so please could you be a bit more specific?
For the theta SC, I can find no mention of BT connection with phone - only WiFi. And the reason for ‘dropping’ the WiFi connection is as explained in my post: I stop, take a photo, then take another one several minutes (perhaps 10s of minutes) later. Thus I have to turn the camera off for two reasons, both to conserve battery power, and to avoid unintended photos when the camera is in the pouch. What else should I be doing? Leaving the camera on all the time (which may be for 3-4 hours on my bike ride)?
The issue of the camera losing connection and having to reconnect is - as I’ve explained - peculiar to the theta camera and/or app. The phone will normally instantly reconnect with a known WiFI site, but I can never get the app to recognise the camera without having to use the app to reconnect each time - which is a real pain. That points to a problem with the app - which the reviews on Google Play Store confirm (the app developers should be reading these reviews and hanging their collective heads in utter shame and embarrassment).
I sometimes get multiple images with the same GPS coordinates, but that does not explain why some images are tagged with a new location some distance away.
I might try bypassing the theta app and see if I can connect a camera to the SV app and use that. If I do so, do I still get the chance to review (and perhaps correct the location) the images before I publish? However, I note that other posters on this forum have had trouble with the camera and SV app not cooperating…is that fixed and/or does it apply to the SC?
