Re: How to transfer images from Z7 ii to PC via WiFI

This may not help with getting your WiFi working, but be aware, the speed of transfer may not be very inspiring unless the Z7 II has a significant improvement over the Z7 in this respect.

In dpreview October 2018, Horshack published his results for Z7 transfer speed to PC under a number of different circumstances.  (I haven't noticed any more recent results on the Z7 II, but there may be some.)

Horshack's figures for WiFi show essentially, around 2-2.3 MBytes/sec, which being very charitable is no more than 20-23 Mbps.

I was shocked at how slow the WiFi transfer from a Z7 is.  I asked Horshack about other mirrorless cameras, and to be fair, the Sony transfer speeds are not much faster - he measured 2.7 MBytes/sec, or charitably, around 27 Mbps for the A7rIII.

In response to a further question from me, Horshack also included a brief comment about transfer speed for a smartphone - he got 160 Mbps - so around 6-8 times faster than then current mirrorless cameras!
