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.
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.
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.
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
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!
