Transferring images to a mobile device is relatively complicated. It could take some minutes time while you are not able to do something different. The automatic image transfer function allows you to transfer those images you have selected directly after you took the images and share them on social networks. Those images will be transferred to your mobile device directly after you switched off your camera.

Alternatively, you can set-up your camera that it is asking you whether Bluetooth should be kept on or not whenever you switch the camera off. The disadvantage is that this would cost a lot of time every time you switch off the camera.
