I now have three different devices that provide Wi-Fi based remote control software that runs on Android or iPhone: a Sony NEX-6, a goPro Session and a Tascam stereo PCM recorder. All of these remote control packages operate by seizing total control of your mobile device's Wi-Fi connection and using that connection to control the remote device. They cannot be operated concurrently and even switching between them is very cumbersome because it requires changing connections. In technical terms,...

I am an enthusiastic shooter for photography, with big admiration for camera's form factor and functionality, though I enjoy cinematography a bit more. I shoot heavily with a Nikon, but these are only for photos as I don't like how my system handles video recording. Every glass I own is Nikon, from AI lens to my nifty fifty. With that being said, for filming, I am a dedicated Sony user, but not with cameras like the A7R since I'm a high school student who can't really afford all that yet. I...
I've been working my way through the reviews and forums all day and have noticed a few items not mentioned that I'm wondering if they exist or there's a way to do without them. 1) JPEG Quality Levels are spec'd only as Fine and Standard. Similar cameras offer Superfine as well. Will I have to resort to editing RAW images more frequently as a result? 2) The built-in flash is pretty small, although the bounce capability appears to be handy. How do you work around the lack of a hot shoe? 3)...
Can a wired or wireless remote control be used in conjunction with auto bracketing on the A7 series of cameras. I am into creating realistic landscape images by processing a bracketed series of shots in HDR software. Currently I shoot with a Nex-6 and to use auto bracketing you have to hold the shutter release down manually while the 3 exposures are taken. It's not possible to use a remote control or cable release to do this. Does the A& series suffer from the same design limitation?
I was looking for a battery grip for the Nex-6, and found that the grip for the a6000 works for the nex-6. only thing is, the extra shutter on the battery grip connects to the micro usb port on the a6000. i know that the a6000 has a "pc remote" mode where you can control the shutter via the usb port, but the nex-6 does not. ( only MTP and usb mass storage ). does anyone know a way to control the shutter of the nex-6 via the usb port? what i was looking...
I have an Nex-6 that I absolutely love, but I am sure that I will eventually move to a full-frame Alpha. The one thing that I hate about my Nex is the lack of a fully functional remote control. The only one available for Nex as will not even work from behind the camera. Does the full frame Alpha have better options here?
