Live Stream video PC - A6500, why isn't this a thing?? Or is it?

Recommended Posts

Canon has EOS Utility which allows me to live view from my camera to my pc and adjust the camera settings as needed. This works even on the T3i!!! I can't seem to find ANYTHING online about Sony a6500 being able to do something similar. I shoot soccer games and I need a monitor that I can control the camera settings as well as have a live view. 


Using a monitor doesn't work for me as I can't control the settings of the camera (once it's 20 feet in the air, I can't adjust those things). So my question is this, is there a program that allows me to adjust camera settings and see a live view and have the ability to start and stop recording for a PC. I don't mean a tiny little phone where I can barely see what's going on but an program for my computer?


Honestly, it baffles me that Sony doesn't have a modern program that can easily do this. At least not one I have found. It's seriously making me consider selling my a6500 and moving back to Canon.

Assuming this is for video, and noted you don't want something that works on a tiny phone, but Playmemories supposedly works on ipads and some tablets just the same (haven't tried that, only my Iphone) as long as it has a wifi connection, or a Vaio PC.



Ver. 4.31 (November 17, 2016)
- One or more additional camera models are now supported: α6500
- Improved operational stability.
Alternate seems to be Capture One (Pro Version) but not sure if it will do video... I only have the free version.... no tethering.
Hope this helps.
