Sony Alpha III Live View issues

Postby NeonSamurai » Mon Jul 22, 2019 6:30 am

Dear Community,

I purchased Wifibooth recently and I like the tool.Unfortunately I face some issues with the live view.

I am able to connect with the camera, but the pictures in Live View are significantly delayed (e.g. 1-8 seconds),
and the pictures come in bursts (like 1/2 a second where the live view is almost fluent, then freeze for 2 seconds).

Please could someone help how to setup the camera/iPad/Wifibooth correctly to get rid of the issue.


Sony Alpha 7 III (Firmware 3.0.1)
iPad mini 3 (Software 12.3.1)
Wifibooth (Version 4.9.3)

Best regards,
Markus

Hi Markus,
What happens when you install the official Sony app on the same iPad, and use that to display live-view -- is it "bursty" too, or does it behave better?

Thank you for the tip.

I found the solution now: I have to switch off the Bluetooth on the iPad.
Now the LiveStream is fluent and without any delays.

Cheers,
Markus

Hi Markus
Great that you found the fix, and thanks for sharing it!
That means you won't have a connection to BluePrint for internet access but fluid live-view is definitely more important!
I'm pretty sure the conflict between wifi & bluetooth is worse on the mini ipads. If you get a full size / newer one, it would work better.
