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 :-)

Apologies if theres already another thread out there about this or along similar lines.
I am wondering what lens may be best suited out the two.
I have a small business as a DJ but I am an amatuer photographer, and like to take pictures and small videos at weddings to give back to the client. These arent services I charge for but still want to give a great looking product back.
I am currently torn between the FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS & Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS. These are both within my budget...just.... but i dont want to limit myself. I already have a prime 50 lense but wanted something where i can use the same lense but zoom in and out depending where i am standing.
Thanks for your help.
By The Chris AtwoodI’m starting to stream shows using a Mac Pro to run Ecamm and zoom with my Sony 6300 & Sony 6000.
Currently I use a 6ft usb cable that works great, but I want to get longer cables. I just purchased two 20 ft cables last week and the connection didn’t work. (To be honest, they were cheep cables... you get what you pay for, lol).
Does anyone know the limitations of usb cables for connectivity or are their specific cables I need to buy.
Anything longer than 6 feet would be awesome, but I’d love to go 25 feet so I can mount a camera to a gimbal or slider.
Thanks in advance!
I'm curious to know if these two lenses can be effectively used in FF bodies without invoking crop mode. For instance, in my Pentax APS-C setup, I can use my 35mm and 50mm lenses in compatible FF bodies (film and DSLR). There is very slight vignetting, but I can get a full frame view out of them.
Has anyone else tried these two lenses in FF mode?
By jdvoracekMacOS users BEWARE!! I just bricked an A7RII ILCE-7RM2 trying to update from 4.0 to 4.01 using my MacBook Pro with Catalina 10.15.3 VERY CAREFULLY following Sony's instructions. I had updated this camera with this computer but an earlier OS successfully in the past. About 1/3 way done, the camera just disconnected from the computer (volume disappeared from desktop), the little red light would not go out, and the camera would not reconnect. I tried pulling the battery. I read where some folks had to run the update more than once, but I couldn't run it again on the Mac because the Mac would not mount the camera as a mass storage volume. The reason I am not really upset is my wife has a desktop PC, and even in this messed up state, the camera responded to the Windows updater and is updated and running.
