Camera cannot be found ...

Postby andreasougland » Tue Jan 14, 2020 3:54 pm

Hi, just got the app, and trying to connect to my Sony A6500.
It starts swirling; "Looking for camera", and there it stays.

Been like this for over 5 minutes now.

Both WiFi on iPad and camera is connected to my local WiFi.

Hi there,
Welcome!
To connect your Sony camera please see this article: https://wifibooth.com/help/articles/con ... ltin-sony/
Specifically please make sure the camera's "Smart remote control" app is updated (I believe latest version is something like 4.30). Updating the camera's firmware does NOT update that app on the camera.
You need to launch the Smart Remote control app after updating it, and connect your ipad's wifi to the camera.
Please write a review for Wifibooth on the Apple App store! Indie developers like me really need people like you to review their apps. Instructions on how to write a review: http://goo.gl/w8NsDI.
