PlayMemories Mobile: Deleting images

Recommended Posts

I transfered a photo from my camera to my iPhone using the latest version of PlayMemories Mobile. The transfer worked, I can see the image in the PlayMemories app, but there seems to be no way to delete the image.


I tried removing the app ("and all associated data", according to the iPhone dialog); but when I reinstalled, the same image popped up in the app, suggesting that the image is stored in some location not associated with the app and not only can't be deleted in the app, but remains on my phone, taking up space, even after the app is removed.  


Reading through Sony's Help pages, reading through Forum posts, and Googling doesn't even find any mention of deleting images on the app. 


Is there a way to delete images in the PlayMemories Mobile app on iPhone?  Have I somehow misunderstood what's going on here?

Have you activated the "All_Sync" option? In that case your images would have been automatically uploaded to some online storage area, i.e. "The Cloud".


- When the All Sync function is on, imported photos are automatically uploaded to "PlayMemories Online" after importing.

      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.
      Thanks in advance,

      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!
