Useless for me. First time getting the smartphone-to-camera connection takes a while. Pairing is not remembered, so gotta re-do the whole connect from scratch every time. After the initial pairing, this app should be able to 'just work' without a deep dive into the camera menus. Using the phone as remote shutter control is OK, and update to ver5.8 looks better. Intended use is group photo, but a group is not going go wait while I struggle with the phone connection.
App has seen continual updates and improvements. Speed and stability are much better than before! Still can't copy some file types to the mobile. :( Would like to control video recording functions on the a6000. Now has a more user friendly menu for action cameras. Many menu items have abbreviations which should be explained in English.
Some show-stopping bugs have been addressed, so I'm improving the rating from 1 to 3 stars. Still cannot choose storage location as many users would like to use SD instead of internal storage. With large amount of 24+ mp photos it fills up easily. Is it too hard? Almost if only one person is maintaining the application and spends all his time adding driver support instead of fixing and improving the functionality. If there were more apps which connect to Sony's cameras, this one would have just 2 stars.
I hate the new version because in landscape mode I can't se the setings on screen. I think that the whole point of this app is to see the changes you make in real time. With the new version, in landscape mode is setings or fpv. I am using this app with a Sony QX1 lens camera so no view finder or camera screen option. Disappointed
Really disappointing. There is no way of adjusting the focus via the touchscreen on the phone. With my current lense, the Autofocus is almost always off when I'm using this app. Please add a feature that allows the adjustment of the focus area by tapping on the screen.
It is unfair to force user to turn on GPS on phone. Not only it drains the battery but it is also a security risk! Why I have to let Sony to track me! In addition, when I set loop time 5 min on phone the device is set to 1 min.
