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?

      Hello, I am wondering whether there is an app to control my Sony a 6000 with my iPhone. What I need: something like the smart remote control app from the playmemories app but with a built in intervalometer (like timelapse) I want to program the camera to take for example one photo every second, but I also need a live view and want to change settings like aperture, iso, shutter and so on. The smart remote control app only has a 2s and 10s timer and it will then only take 1 shot. I want it to take 1 shot every second for a certain period of time, without losing focus (with AF and face recognition ON). Thx for your help guys :)

      I recently started photography and I purchased a Sony a7iii (loving it). I was curious - is there any reason to shoot RAW files when using the send to smartphone function via the PlayMemories app? I know the camera automatically compresses the file into JPEG when sending to the smartphone so it's not actually sending a RAW file, but I wasn't sure if the end quality is better when the original file is in RAW format? Is the transferred file going to be better because the original file started with better (raw) quality? Or should I just save myself the space on my memory card and shoot in JPEG?

      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,
