Sony A7R II not connecting

Post by axnyslie » Tue Apr 14, 2020 6:42 pm

I cannot get my supported Sony A7R II to connect via USB. The camera is seen but it's functions are all greyed out. The camera is set to PC control and it works with the Sony Remote software. The LiveView screen shows "Connecting..." and nothing else. I've tried different computers, cables and port and no luck.

Sonny cameras are supported only using wifi connections

I am trying to connect to use OBS to stream. Is this possible? The only method I see is to pair the Sony camera via wifi with the computer, but this loses internet wifi access.

Leaving this message here for posterity. We were able to get this to work on the A7RII on Windows 10 using the wifi connection per the steps: http://digicamcontrol.com/doc/userguide/interface/wifi

Thanks
