Hi,

I'm in research for remote control  A7 R2  with smartphone via USB too...I'v been searching since.....and nothing found.

As i asked  RupiApps(camera Pro Control) for this app to work with USB/Sony, they told me that Sony are very...secret and it would be difficult to " code" the language(s) to make it working for Sony...So as Hamzah, still  searching...If find something i will inform you..

Thanks. Have you ever tried HDMI and external monitor?

Hi,

It works with an external monitor plus HDMI(or with LapTop) but as i have to climb in the mountains with  big slopes i'm searching to use my smartphone to avoid extra weight( just 8 kg face 60 ° slopes is just...tiring)...

I've got 7D Canon and Dslr Remote Control or Camera Pro Control are well working with USB..Sony remain a special case.
With wifi, it works but too much manipulations to do, lagging time to high and so on...

Hello. I have Canon 6D and I'm thinking of getting Sony maybe the A7. My Canon can be controlled by phone (DSLR app) with usb. Can Sony be controlled by usb, as well? By controlling I mean see the screen and change the settings like shutter speed and so on.

Thank you.

With the A7 you can establish a wifi connection to your Android cell-phone (I don’t know about an i-phone, but somebody else might know or it might be in the manual). You ought to download from Play Store, Imaging Edge for Mobile.

You won’t be able to control all parameters of the camera. You will just be able to see the subject to be photographed on you cell-phone screen, and to action the shutter of the camera.

The wireless remote control RMT-DSLR (at least the RMT-DSLR1) allows you to shoot the Sony a7 (just that).

For tethering shooting with the a7, you can connect it to a computer through an usb connection and Imaging Edge for desktop would allow you to control the camera, but you won’t be seeing the subject to be photographed. But for this, one can simultaneously  connect, via an HDMI cable, the camera to a monitor screen (or tv) or to a monitor as could be the Sony’s CLM-V55 monitor.

    • Back again with a brand new camera from a different supplier and, fresh out the box, it's the exact same problem. I've attached a video (crushed it to death so sorry about the video but it's the sound that's important)   You can even hear at the start of recording both times the sound isn't as audible (if at all) as it later becomes.   I'm currently waiting on an external mic for this cam so can of course test with the external (and imagine there will be no high pitched sound) but it can't be that I've got two separate cameras that both have the EXACT same fault? What are the chances? C0002_1.mp4
    • For used equipment I look at MPB, then various renowned camera shops like Wex, Park, London Camera Exchange and CameraJungle (Jessops) - assuming you live in Britain. We gave my grand daughters an A 700 and an A 200 - both A-mount but costing around £150 in excellent condition, including kit lenses.  (My cameras are also A-mount which means they can use my lenses when we are out together.) If your teenager is already keen, or you wish to share use of your E mount lenses, then an A7 makes a lot of sense. Good luck hunting!
    • I am getting tired when I think about my camera if it gets stollen. I wish if sony now start to think about securing our expensive cameras by adding builtin gps tracker in new cameras or battery grips for the late cameras. 
    • Hello, I want to use my HP laptop as a field monitor for my Sony a6000. Naively, I thought a micro HDMI to full HDMI to DisplayPort adapter would do the trick. Unfortunately, HP DisplayPorts are typically for outputting not inputing.  A capture card (HDMI to USB) can display what the camera is recording onto the laptop screen. Although, this is not for recording. I simply want the laptop to act as a field monitor. Without the use of the USB on the camera, as that is being used for a remote shutter release. There is the Imaging Edge Webcam software. But that doesn't support the a6000 and is not really the field monitor solution I am looking for anyway. I feel there must be a way to have the camera's micro HDMI connect to the HP laptop and display the camera screen. But how?  I'm close to the point of giving up. Is a solution I'm missing?   Kind regards, Emrys
    • I use A99(full frame) and A68(CSC).  I too use the Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 on the a99 - as my "walk around" lens I also use a Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 and Tamron 70-300mm  f/4-5.6 (thinking about upgrading to 70-20mm f/2.8) for landscape and architecture.  I have a Sigma 170-500mm attached to my a68 for wildlife but sometimes carry my Minolta 500mm in my bag for lightness. For low light and fine work, I have a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 "art" lens. As you probably guess, I am an amateur who dabbles in various forms of photography. All my equipment is second hand, but in excellent condition - so it may not be the most up to date, but still quality glass at less than 1/2 the price of the latest gear.
