Can you shoot RAW using the Smart Remote App?
That's horrible. Why the hell would Sony do that? For their point and shoots that connect to PlayMemories, they allow menu controls, video trigger, and full size image transfer. For NEX cameras, it is far more limited it seems.
I found out the hard way, after shooting some really important stargazing shots, just to upload files to computer and see that they were all JPEG only >_>
