Sony Imaging Edge Mobile

The new Imaging Edge Mobile app offers instant transfer of images from camera to connected mobile devices while shooting. Images can be transferred when utilizing the new “Auto background transfer to Smartphone” functionality(1), allowing users to easily share content direct from their phone to social media platforms. The mobile application also supports 4K movie transfer(2) and remote control functionality.

  1. Please note that the “Auto background transfer to Smartphone” feature is only currently supported with the Sony a9 with software update Ver.5.0 or later.
  2. 4K movie transfer and remote control functionality is only supported with the Sony a9 with software update Ver.5.0 or later, ILCE-7RM3, ILCE-7M3, ILCE-6400, DSC-RX10M4, DSC-RX100M6, DSC-RX100M5A

It’s very confusing which cameras currently support the features that Imaging Edge for Mobile provides. I’d recommend checking this compatibility table if it’s unclear.
