I'm working on it but unfortunately Sony does not help much. No documentation for developers.

Thanks hope you can find a fix for it. This is the best camera control software available. Well done.

I have a problem connecting with my Sony A7R3 & A7R IV!
Right now I use iPhone ControlmyCamera apps to try to connect A7R3&4 can't work!
I try to connect my camera as usual with Wi-Fi but the screen stops at Connection info nothing happens.
But connect to my A7R2 & A6000 is fine!
Anyone can help?
Tell me how to set up the connection of the camera?

Sorry for me starting my first post with a feature request...
I own a Sony A7 RIV. When I run the current version of qdslrdashboard, I get a live view of the camera, but can´t release / change any of the camera parameters.
I understand that PTP/IP protocol does not seem to be supported on Sony Cameras. However Sony have extended their SDK. In the meantime it is available on both Windows - as well as various Unix systems (see link below).
I was able to compile their sample app on both windows and raspbian and got it to run (connection via USB). The documentation seems pretty elaborate - as well as their APIs.
Could this be a good starting point to extend qdslrdashboard camera support ? ... index.html
Fromt their docs:
2021-05-11Camera Remote SDK Ver. 1.04.00 has been released.
Main changes:

Added support for ILCE-1, ILCE-7RM4A and DSC-RX0M2(Ver. 3.00 or later).
Wired LAN is supported.
Linux® 64bit (x86) is available.
Added some commands for Windows®, MacOS and Linux®.
