Sony Tethered error, LRtimelapse error message "not in Manual, not Rae+ JPEG"

Post by mattjaro »

devices I'm running.

Camera: Sony A7RIII
Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 w/S pen
Phone: Pixel 3

Problem: when I connect the tablet to the Camera using the wifi connection the LRTimelapse extension works great for about an hour but then WIFI connection drops out and QDSLR Dashboard stops making changes to the exposure on the camera for holy grail timelapses. when I use my phone instead of my tablet the same thing happens.

I figured that maybe its a WIFI connection issue, unsure whether it was the Cameras wifi or the Tablet/Phones wifi i figured i would eliminate the wireless connection and tether the camera directly to the Tablet/Phone with a USB type C to USB type C cable. The standard functions all work fine when it is tethered, Live View, Image Capture, and other functions work, but when i try to get into LRTimelapse i get an error that states that my camera 1. is not set to Manual Mode and 2. is not set to Raw+JPEG or Jpeg. i check my camera and it is set to Manual Mode and Raw+JPEG. Ive tried tethering both my phone and tablet and get the same error, is there a setting on either my Sony A7RIII or maybe a setting in the app that is causing this error?

about 6 months ago i tethered my phone to my camera and everything worked fine, connected fine, and there were no errors, but over the last couple months when i have tried to connect my Tablet or my phone i get the error mentioned above.

i have tried every setting and adjustment and no luck, i would be incredibly grateful if i could fix this Error.

Thanks,
Jaro

For Sony cameras only wireless connection will work.
