  1. Hi all I'm curious about your experience regarding bluetooth connectivity on the Sony A7 III. The reason why I'm asking is that when I lent a Fujifilm X-T3 it would always instantly connect to my phone and start to geotag my photos. I don't think the app was running in the foreground even. But with my A7 III I need to start the app, sometime force-quit it, turn on the camera and start the app again. The sequence is very important because if I open the app before I turn on my camera it won't work. This is very annoying because I like to geo-tag my photos all the time, but this is such a hassle that I don't. I would like it to work as fluent as fujis system. I've deleted and reinstalled the app I've removed the connection between my phone and Sony A7III and reconnected I've reset the connection on my camera Phone: iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 7 Camera: Sony A7III What is your experience? Should I get my camera serviced?
  2. Hello everyone. I have a Sony A7s for almost a year. I wanted to buy the Lens Compensation from Playmemories and they do not allow me to buy this app because message says: "Signed out since the service is not distributed in the Country/Region of your account." I am from Greece. But this was not a problem when I gave my money to buy the A7s. My country is now a problem because I want to buy an app? Does anynone else here had same problem with no servise due to region/country account? Does anyone have an idea of how else I can buy this app? Thank you George Lens CompensationLens CompensationLens Compensation
  3. Hello, I am wondering whether there is an app to control my Sony a 6000 with my iPhone. What I need: something like the smart remote control app from the playmemories app but with a built in intervalometer (like timelapse) I want to program the camera to take for example one photo every second, but I also need a live view and want to change settings like aperture, iso, shutter and so on. The smart remote control app only has a 2s and 10s timer and it will then only take 1 shot. I want it to take 1 shot every second for a certain period of time, without losing focus (with AF and face recognition ON). Thx for your help guys :)
  4. Hi! I recently started photography and I purchased a Sony a7iii (loving it). I was curious - is there any reason to shoot RAW files when using the send to smartphone function via the PlayMemories app? I know the camera automatically compresses the file into JPEG when sending to the smartphone so it's not actually sending a RAW file, but I wasn't sure if the end quality is better when the original file is in RAW format? Is the transferred file going to be better because the original file started with better (raw) quality? Or should I just save myself the space on my memory card and shoot in JPEG?
  5. I transfered a photo from my camera to my iPhone using the latest version of PlayMemories Mobile. The transfer worked, I can see the image in the PlayMemories app, but there seems to be no way to delete the image. I tried removing the app ("and all associated data", according to the iPhone dialog); but when I reinstalled, the same image popped up in the app, suggesting that the image is stored in some location not associated with the app and not only can't be deleted in the app, but remains on my phone, taking up space, even after the app is removed. Reading through Sony's Help pages, reading through Forum posts, and Googling doesn't even find any mention of deleting images on the app. Is there a way to delete images in the PlayMemories Mobile app on iPhone? Have I somehow misunderstood what's going on here?
  6. Is it possible to zoom in (say 5x or 10x) to check focus via the Playmemories App? Not zoom the lens I just want to be able to double check focus when the camera is mounted out of reach. The app seems to be woefully simple (or limited) when compared to the A series cameras, example no way to set up an HDR bracket??? I ask because I am wondering if I am missing obvious setting that the app can in fact do? Any help is appreciated. thanks,
  7. When transferring files from a7riii via PlayMemories to IPhone over WiFi. How do I maintain the color(or b&w) profiles look to my images? I take time to set the look of my images so I have a jpg I like in camera. And every time I transfer the image to my phone it seems to have lost my preset look? I’ve tried doing this with full res jpgs- and with the embedded raw preview jpg. Please help! Reason I want to do this is to make quick social media posts- and I don’t want to spend half my life fiddling with my phone - recreating a look I am already happy with in camera. I’ll absolutely take the raw files later down the line and edit them properly on my Mac. Thankyou!
  8. I use A99ii. Don't shoot lots of video. The other day, I imported video from a card into PlayMemories and extracted some frames. I uploaded the files to PM online and noticed the date taken had been changed to date modified even on the videos. I had to manually go in and change the date taken back to the original date. Does anyone know why the videos date taken was changed? I know why the extracted frames date taken was changed although I wish they would keep the original date taken. Thanks in advance, GEGJr
  9. Hi, Since an update my remote app is only showing very limited possibilities. Basically I can only press the shutter, and choose between direct shot or 2 sec selftimer. All other options are not available. I've tried updating the camera software, but got the message that it wasn't necessary. I also deleted the app from my IPhone and re-installed it. Any ideas on how to solve this? See attach for a screenshot of my remote. Thanks.
  10. Forgive me if this has been discussed. I have searched high and low and cannot find it mentioned before. I have the A7RM2 and although used primarily for stills I need to take a time-lapse of a marching band performance that will last about 11min. I am using Playmemories. I "think" my settings are correct. The shoot is at night on a brightly lit football field. I set the Playmemories for 1 second intervals but when I start the shoot it is only shooting at 2 or 3 or even 4 sec intervals. There is a warning symbol for the life of me I cannot find the meaning anywhere!! Over the 1 second interval indicator in the camera screen is an orange exclamation point (!). Can somebody please tell me what I am doing wrong? I am using a SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC Card (64GB, 95MB/s, U3). I have the settings for the most number of shots (999). What should be a 600-700 shot timelapse video (I am letting the app create the video in camera) turned out to be only a 140 or so shot video that lasts no more than 7 seconds. I even have the camera set to shoot JPEG (fine). Thank you so much for any words you can offer. Steve
  11. Hi! Just bought a5000 ystday. I was reading some stuff about camera and its options for long exposure photos and I came across this: https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/238308-dont-buy-the-sony-a50005100-for-astrophotography/?page=2 Last post on page 2, as I understand, says he is using BULB mode via playmemories app. I don't have this option I'm using playmemories app version 5.6.1 and on camera itself version 1.10 (I think they are both latest versions - correct me if I'm wrong). So when I go to M (manual), there should be BULB mode, but via app there is not? Anyway, I would like to hear what option can I use as remote shutter for taking long BULB pics (2 or more mins). Thanks for your help!
  12. I really would like to put the remoted app on my Galaxy S4 smart-phone (I already have PM's latest version on it), so that I can use it to control my Sony A7R2, but the only way it seems is to scan the QR code from the bottom of the camera! This is the problem - in that the code is very small and, perhaps not as distinct as it should be - despite my camera only being a few months old. Consequently, all my attempts have failed - I guess as the magnification isnt big enough (or, at least, that's what I presume!). Has anyone had this same trouble? If so, would you mind sharing the resolution of the problem with me please. Anyone who can suggest other rsolutions are also welcome to comment. I must confess that I am very dis-heartened by PM, especially as it won't even work on my new Mac - apparently is too old and crude for the latest OS! (or am I alone in getting a tad P****d off with it!)
  13. Upgraded the soft A7R2, login no problem since known by computer I had to upgrade my A7r2 playmemories and forgot my password So changed it and while I'm login in the system asked me to check that I’m not a robot. Images jumped up with the mention to check all the images with house numbers and after that rivers. Keeps me producing these images to check again and again. Also not always clear what they mean by river (waterfall is a river or not, it depends) Two hours lost by doing it over and over again…grrrr NORESULT YET Please Sony change this Not possible on the camera as well…. Another fact the camera should be able to remember the password as well, not easy to set it

  15. All of a sudden I'm only getting jpegs when I use Playmemories as the remote. I've been using Playmemories as a wifi remote shooting hummingbirds for about a year first with an a7r and now with an a7rm2 and in the last few sessions I'm not getting ARW's just jpegs. The camera setting is for RAW+jpeg. Anybody have a suggestion?
  16. In the Application>PlayMemories Camera Apps menu, when trying to update a free Sony App (I.E Sony Remote Control to ver 3.30), I get an error message: System Software update of the device is necessary for this application. View the page and update: http://www.sony.net/pcma/info Firstly, that web page does not exist. Secondly, am I being asked to update my camera firmware? I cannot find instructions on Sony's websites on how to do this HELP!!
  17. My ILCE-7M2 can't connect to Sony Playmemories. Everytime when I try to connect my Sony A7II in Playmemories to download a APP the following error appears. Error: This camera is not supported. Anyone know what is happening?
  18. Hello! I have an A7, and i am using the playmemories mobile app for android a lot. Recently I have bought a netbook/tablet that uses windows 8.1 (Full version, not RT), and i really want to use it to remotely control my camera in the same way that i use my phone. Is there any app that can do that from windows? I don't need live view, but at least it would be great to be able to release the shutter remotely without a cable... So, anyone know of a solution?
