Re: Desktop version of qDslrDashboard and Sony ILCE-6300

First - many thanks - I would never had noticed that myself. Second - I tried about 20 times and it did not accept the pass/pin - don't know why. After about 20 times when I was about to give up it finally did - I don't know that I did anything different - how complex is this process - horrific. I h...

Re: Desktop version of qDslrDashboard and Sony ILCE-6300

Hi, I am continuing the original question (in my case it is an A6500). I was able to connect the camera to my Android device (isn't that simple but it seems to work now more or less). I am trying now with a laptop and I am having problems again. The main problem is that the laptop (Lenovo Yoga Pro 2...

Re: Connecting Sony A6500 to dslrdashboard Android

Just a P.S.
Did anybody try to use both dslrdashboard and an external monitor at the same time (so controlling the camera from say a tablet or a computer and having a second larger monitor for another person just to view the image). Is this possible with the A6500?

Re: Connecting Sony A6500 to dslrdashboard Android

Solved this.
The problem was resolved after I did a reset to the phone (I am guessing that playmemories was in the phone memory even thought it was not on.

Seems to work fine now - I need to test it with a computer to see how all the functions work.

Re: Connecting Sony A6500 to dslrdashboard Android

Thanks for that however: When I try to connect the phone to the camera (without the Playmemories app) using WIFI (BT is off on the camera and the phone) I see connecting on the camera and it stays this way. The phone says connected to camera but dslrdashboard doesn't connect - I get "searching for C...

Re: Connecting Sony A6500 to dslrdashboard Android

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.

There seems to be a contradiction here:
You state:
1. start the 'Smart remote control' application
And than you note at the end:
be sure that the Sony Playmemories application is not started and not connected to the camera

So what is it - should the app be running or not?

Connecting Sony A6500 to dslrdashboard Android

Hi,
I am trying to connect my Sony A6500 (latest firmware, latest playmemories) to the dslrdashboard 3.53.
It doesn't seem to work - nothing happens when I press Sony on the dslrdashboard (even when the camera is supposedly connected to the phone (one plus one).

Ideas?

Re: no cable connect D7100 win10 V0.3.3

I updated the firmware at least once on my D7100. Nobody else encountered this issue? There is very little chance Nikon will help (as the editor of LensVid I work with them all the time) - this happens only with DSLRDashboard and it isn't a supported software - so I don't see them doing anything abo...

Re: no cable connect D7100 win10 V0.3.3

Got it. One more thing - I ran into an issue with the D7100 - it is a strange one (this isn't new but still very annoying). Every so often when I use the software (no matter if connected with USB or wirelessly) sound coming to the camera using the mic input (I record with an external recorder and fe...

Re: no cable connect D7100 win10 V0.3.3

Well after re-installing the driver + restart it is now working again.
m... strange the only change I made was a move to win 10 and the new version of DSLRdashboard.
The driver was installed before and it did work on win 8.1 - do you think that a move to win 10 removed the driver?
