This was here and today in this video i’m, going to show you how you can use your smartphones, iphones or ipads as an external monitor for your sony, a6400 camera. So let’s begin the video Music, so here i have an iphone 7 plus it doesn’t matter whether you have iphones android, mobile phones or ipads. The process will be same, and here i have the sony a6400, as you can see right here. So the first thing that we are going to do is that we are going to open our smartphone and we’re going to need to download an app so i’m going to open the app store. So the app that you’re going to be looking for is called imaging edge. So let me just type it here first, so i can show you so here is the app that you need to download imaging edge mobile and here it’s here is its icon. So i have already downloaded it and guys. I will also put its download link both for android and ios, just below the like button as well. So once you have downloaded the app here, you can see the app so we’re not going to open the app right. Now, first of all, we need to do some settings on the sony, a6400 camera so i’m, first of all, going to open or enable the sony s6400. So here you’re going to press on the menu button right here here you can see that it is on menu.
Number one we need to go to the third menu. Where you have this world icon or the internet icon. I would say so we’re going to press the upper button. First then, we’re going to press on the right button until we reach here so we’re going to reach the page network, one we’re going to go down, and here it says, control w smartphone. You need to make sure that you are in this option. We are going to press on the round button on the very mid to selected here. You can see a control with smartphone, it is currently disabled or off. We are going to press on it. We are going to go up and we are going to on so this is the thing that will actually allow you to connect your smartphone with your sony a6400 and to use it as a wireless monitor. So we’re going to go down where it says: connection we’re, going to press on the mid button and it’s going to start a connection. So here it will show a barcode. Now we can just open the imaging edge software that we downloaded so guys it isn’t necessary that you have an active internet connection on your smartphone. I have tried it without internet and it works perfectly all right, so it doesn’t matter whether you have active wi fi on your smartphone or not anyways. When you’re going to set up your imaging edge software it’s going to are just simple question here, it says: connect with a new camera you’re going to press on this one and here you’re, going to press on scan qr code.
So it’s going to ask for permission. We’Re going to press on ok to allow camera permission, and here we’re just simply going to scan the qr code right here. So you can see it’s asking whether you want to join or not so we’re going to press on join okay now it’s connecting with it. It may take some time because it is the first time that it is connecting and guys if you are feeling any lag with the actual video and this. What you can do is that you can disable bluetooth. So here is our live feed. We can just rotate it like here, so that you can see. So let me just uh disable auto rated on my smartphone, and here is the thing that is actually being recorded by the camera. So this is the live preview. So let me just do is that let me just move the camera around, and here you can see the rest of my studio, which is actually being shown by the sony, a6400 camera, so you’re going to feel a little bit of lag because it is through wireless Connection but hey, it is better than those expensive monitors on so this is it guys. This is how you can connect it. So i think this is a much better and cheaper option to connect your sony. A6400 with your smartphone. If you have an ipad, the process will be same. The benefit with ipad will be that they’re going to have a larger screen, so anyways guys.
This is how you can do it. I hope that you like this video and guys. I have already made a video on how you can connect an external monitor like a led, monitor or led tv with your sony a6400, if you’re interested in that video, a box should appear here right now, and i will also put that video videos link just below The like button as well, so this is guys you can how you can do it and if you press on the display button, you can have different options as well, so you can change uh, its aperture, it’s, iso mode, etc, etc. So it’s, basically a wireless remote in itself, but i just wanted to show you how you can use it as an external monitor, so guys, if you like this video, please give this video a thumbs up.
