Sony Remote Camera Control App Mac

Feb 28, 2017  I did a quick video showing how I wirelessly tether my Sony camera to my Mac in studio. For a full tutorial check out my blog at Sony Smart Remote Camera App. Air Direct Wireless Tethering System is ideal for camera control and image transfer using a Mac or Windows computer and your tethering software of choice. All native and compatible functions of your software will be available. If Case Air compatibility is shown below, Air Direct users will have access to use the Air Remote Mobile App. Aug 27, 2018  The suite of Imaging Edge REMOTE/VIEWER/EDIT apps that included tethering were only for desktop machines initially which is why you are seeing for only Win/Mac. The PlayMemories Remote Mobile app was for camera control on Android (maybe iOS, but I don't have one of those phones, so someone else can confirm that).

Shoot with your Alpha camera tethered via a USB cable to your computer using Sony’s Free ‘Remote Camera Control‘ Software.

When you shoot tethered the images will be transferred directly to a folder on your computer instead of the camera’s memory card. It is possible to then Auto Import images from this folder into Lightroom as your shoot progresses (File > Auto Import > Enable Auto Import). For Lightroom to import the images automatically you will need to choose the folder that the Remote Camera Control software is saving the images into by going to File > Auto Import > Auto Import Settings. Lightroom calls this folder the ‘Watched Folder‘.

NOTE > There is no Live Preview of the image before you shoot when importing images into Lightroom. The advantage of this workflow is that you are simply reviewing the images you have captured on a larger screen rather than the LCD screen of the camera. If you just want to Preview images on larger screen before you capture you can purchase Phase One’s Capture One or use a Sony HD external monitor. An advantage to the tethered workflow is that you can also apply a Develop Preset to the images as they are being imported, e.g. you could apply a high-contrast black and white preset to the images being imported so that your client is seeing images closer to what they have asked you to shoot.

Here are the steps you need to take to shoot tethered using Remote Camera Control and Adobe Lightroom:

  1. Download the latest Remote Camera Control App for Windows or for Mac
  2. In the Menu settings of your camera set the USB Connection to PC Remote (found in the Setup section that looks like a Toolbox).
  3. Start the Remote Camera Control Software.
  4. Choose a folder in the ‘Save in‘ section at the base of the Remote Camera Control panel.
  5. Choose this same folder in the Auto Import Settings in Lightroom.
  6. Switch on the camera.
  7. Capture an image.
  8. If you have trouble finding where this image is in your Lightroom Catalog go to the Library module and in the Catalog panel choose ‘Previous Import‘. Then right-click on the thumbnail image that you just captured and choose the ‘Go to Folder in Library’ option.
  9. Double Click on the thumbnail image to go into Loupe view (full screen preview).
  10. Subsequent images that you capture will be now be shown in Loupe view rather than a thumbnail image automatically.

NOTE > In recent versions of my Mac operating system the Camera Control Software has been telling me (after a couple of successfully imported shots) that it is unable to save in the folder that I created and instead saves them to a folder it creates – Documents > Remote Camera Control > Dated Folder. Even if I choose this as the watched folder in Lightroom the software will still come up with the warning – clicking OK in the Remote Camera Control warning dialog will cause the import process to resume. To overcome this problem I have been using this dated folder as the watched folder and also keeping the Remote Camera Control software as the active window when I am shooting. This workflow has resolved the problems I encountered. I expect subsequent software updates (either Apple or remote camera Control) to resolve the current issue I am experiencing.

Realistic Expectations for Performance: When shooting Raw images in a tethered workflow using an A7RII you can’t expect to 42.4 megapixel images to appear a split second after you press the shutter release on your computer screen. I believe the USB cable from the camera is the ‘bottleneck’ in the pipeline and so I expect to have to wait 10 seconds before the image appears on my computer screen I will then wait another second or two while Lightroom builds a detailed screen preview.

Problems with a Tethered Workflow: The USB I/O is definitely a problem with the reliability of a tethered workflow but other problems include working with your camera tethered to a laptop computer. I would strongly encourage you to invest in a long brightly coloured USB cable and use a Jerk Stopper on the camera and computer to avoid damaging the USB ports if someone walks through the USB cable while you are shooting. A company called Tether Tools supplies all the equipment you require to make this workflow painless.

  1. 1. You can adjust the image quality such as brightness, hue and white balance.
  2. 2. You can adjust the image quality of ARQ-format images generated by Pixel Shift Multi Shooting and develop them into TIFF, JPEG, or other formats.

In 'Pixel Shift Multi Shooting' the camera shoots four RAW images while shifting the image sensor. You can generate images with a higher resolution than is possible with regular shooting by combining the four RAW images on a PC. This is helpful when shooting still subjects, such as works of art and buildings.
In addition, when combined with ILCE-7RM4, the camera can shoot 16 RAW images to achieve ultrahigh-resolution shooting with information equivalent to 963.2 million pixels (approx. 60.2 million pixels x 16).
