I would be delighted to learn how to use my Galaxy S3 to trigger AE bracketing on my Nex-6 please.

Simple, select the Nex-6 built-in AEB exposure mode and install and select the (free) Remote App from the Apps menu.

Launch PlayMemories on your S3 and you are good to go.

Note, there is also a more extensive (non free) AEB app, but this app cannot be triggered remotely.

I just read about the Bracket Pro app, but at $4.99, I'm not sure whether there's any value to it. I'm more interested in bracketing exposures for HDR purposes.

So I just want to make sure that I understand the procedures perfectly. Once I select the AEB exposure mode and I load up the application on my iPhone, will I have to long press the shutter button on the app to trigger the bracket of shots or one tap of the button on the app is enough?

How intuitive is this process? I read that it can take a while for a phone to connect to the NEX-6 via wifi. If I turn off the NEX-6, will I lose the wifi connection or the connection is maintained until the camera is dead?

I forgot to ask if the AEB images trigger with the PlayMemories app can be saved in RAW? I'm only interested in RAW images.
