a7R III tethering/ftp loose usb-c

Hello everyone,

Every now and then I need to see the full sized raw files on my computer screen as I shoot.

I connect the camera via its usb-c port to my PC with a 5m usb cable and I use the sony plastic tool that came with the camera to hold the cable in place. I use the imaging edge remote.

Way too often I lose the connection because of what I thought was little movement where the cable connects with the camera. I performed a test where I grabbed the cable and shook it to all sides and it did not disconnect. What is going on? Another issue is that sometimes when using remote app the image is very laggy and sometimes it is not. I tried different cables, shorter and longer, usb 2 vs 3 and regardless of what I use the issue sometimes appears and sometimes not.

So in general random unexplained lag and disconnects. Solutions?

In addition. I tried setting up the FTP connection through filezilla server. Took me an hour to figure how to set this up only to realise it takes 15 seconds to transfer one 40mb RAW file to the computer, not to mention the time it takes to connect. Furthermore, everytime I take a picture I need to select and send a file manually. At least that is what I experienced.

Sony a7R IIIA
