Yeah I would agree with Sammy, the WiFi is not as useful as I thought it would be, I've probably used it a total of two times; once to transfer files and send them while on the road and another time to take a selfie using my tablet for composing and firing the shutter.

The biggest flaw in my mind is that it doesn't have the ability to connect to a home network and appear as storage device from which to transfer both RAW and JPEG files.

Instead you can only connect to it as an adhoc network directly between the camera and a device and then you are limited to using the app which only transfers JPEGs.

Ideally I should be able to give it my home WiFi SID and password and then see it like I see my 4TB NAS as just another device, if they had implemented that capability it would be a nice improvement for my work flow.

Didn't realize it was so limited. Now I don't feel too bad.
