Sony a6500 + Remote + Picture Profile

Post by greg »

Hey guys

I have a problem. I want to use my smartphone as a field monitor, since the screen is crap for recording outside.
My problem: I NEED to use Picture profile, 120fps etc. and this is NOT supported by the official Remote app on the camera.

I purchased a OTG Cable and your application, but it still doesnt work. On my main phone, everytime i connect and the app asks if i allways want to use this app when I connect the camera, it crashes. On my other android phone the same, but it doesnt crash - there is just no picture.

I also tried to create with my phone a hotspot and with a second phone and my camera connect to the phone's hotspot and try it like that - no success.

So my question: Is there ANY option to use your app and an android phone as external monitor?
That would really help me!

For Sony you can only use WiFi connection with camera's built in WiFi.
USB won't work.
