I would like to power the camera during a timelapse so that batteries don't run out. But when I plug a USB charge cable in to its charge port, the screen automatically goes to the USB file transfer mode, as if I was trying to connect it to a computer to pull off the photos. Is there a way to keep it operating in shoot mode while providing power via the charge port?
I'm trying to set up my Sony a6300 as webcam using the Sony Remote software to my Mac Book Pro.
For some reason it's recognising the camera but not connecting. It seems to be stuck in the 'Connecting... USB' cycle even when I've left it for several hours.
I'm using the USB setting PC Connect on the camera
I'm using the Sony USB to B cable supplied with camera.
So far I've tried the following;
1. Using another USB to B cable (although it is recognising the camera, just not connecting - see screenshots)
2. Reset camera to factory settings
3. Uninstalled and re-installed the Sony Image Edge software
4. Several restarts of the Mac and Camera
Fair to say I'm stumped!!!
Anyone else have any ideas?
Thank you :-)
I've just purchased an a6500 with the LA-EA4 in an attempt to use all of my A-mount lenses but have better autofocus, image quality, etc. than my a77 (mk 1). I have tried it with the Minolta 50mm 1.7, Sony 16-50 2.8, and Tamron 70-300 USD. All lenses have the same issue: back-focus. I've tried each and every micro-adjust setting nothing seems to have a noticeable difference on the back-focus. The focus areas even show up green so the camera thinks it's focused correctly, but it's always something behind the subject that's in focus. I've been using spot AF-S but have tried all combinations of focus areas and modes to no avail. The camera has the older software version 1.05, I have not updated but it doesn't seem like the update provides any support for the adapter so I don't think that would help. The only other things I've tried are resetting and initializing the camera. Focus is phenomenal with native E lenses, and all the A lenses I've tested are perfect on my a77.
