I just wasted an afternoon trying to get the sadly-misnamed "Sony Smart Remote Control" app (for Android) to work with my Sony A6000. When I finally got it working (I honestly can't say how), I was surprised to see that it could trip my shutter and control a couple of other basically useless features, such as whether to display a grid line and the mirror mode. I need to remotely change White Balance and trip the shutter -- that's all. Selecting items in the "Smart Remote Embedded" menu on the camera causes the Settings menu on the phone to "jump" as if it has received a change, but the menu does not change: they remain the same as before: Review Image (2 sec), Save Options (On), Location information (off), Saving Destination (xxx), Grid Line (off), Mirror Mode (off).
If you have a solution, I'll be glad to hear it. But if not, is there an alternative solution, perhaps a hardware device that I can connect via cable?
