This is really bad. Creating FTP server to get images from an A7r3. Shooting raw + jpeg. The server gives an error as soon as a raw is uploaded and does not continue. I would be fine with jpeg only uploaded but there is NO option for this in thr A7r3 menu. So effectively I cannot use this app unless I shoot jpeg only. Is this really the case???

Apparently, I'm in the same quandriy as most folks have already stated. I can't transfer from the a7iii to my laptop via a "Samsung" style USB (C?) to standard USB. What the heck? Why won't a direct connection work? I need to have the direct connection for transfer shot at a time!

Guaranteed Sony quality: horrible. Why playmemories put under? It worked. These two replacement apps,neither work. This app has 1 function,transfer images. LOL. Can't even find my camera! Other app does. Ftp import doesn't work. Camera has NFC! Of course not utilized! It's 2021 for sakes, Sony should be able to make wireless image transfer btw Sony A7R and Android reality, not a dream. Disapponted.
