Hi there,

I'm tried both android and ios. On Android it doesnt connect at all to my a7riii saying its got a problem with wifi settings of the phone. On IOS however i can connect via Camera internal wifi, open QDSLR Dashboard, press the "connect sony wifi button" in the app and it says it successfully connects to the camera. But from there on nothing is happening. No live view, cant capture images. It says its version 3.5.5.

Is there a fix?

I have tried other solutions (Timelapse+ View for example which has dropped the QDSLR system) but nothing shoots Holy Grails like QDSLR Dashboard. The Sony A7RIII (in fact all the Sony A7 cameras) is a brilliant timelapse shooter.

I have constantly tried to pair QDSLR on my Android phone with my camera using USB and wi-fi and had no success. I appreciate that this is not a simple solution but wow would it be amazing if would work.

Can some coding geniuses work out a solution?

Sony cameras will only work with the built in wireless using the camera 'Smart remote control' application ( https://www.playmemoriescameraapps.com/ ... _00-F00002 )
- enable wireless on your Sony camera
- connect your controlling device wireless to the camera wireless
- start qDslrDashboard/ControlMyCamera and press the 'Sony wireless' button

* be sure that the Playmemories application is not running on your controlling device
* eventually disable mobile data on your controlling device (on some devices it will not connect while the mobile data is enabled)

I can get qDslr to "see" my A7RIII when connecting via wi-fi but it doesn't operate the camera at all. Play Memories Mobile works OK but of course no timelapse.

The software seems to be so close to working, but just won't do it. Please, please get this working, us Sony users would be eternally grateful!
