FAQ

Attention:
You are invited to ask questions or give a comment at the end of FAQ-list.

Where can I get RCCDroid/Pro ?

You will find both Apps in Google Play Store:


What is the difference between RCCDroid and RCCDroidPro ?

RCCDroid is a free App, for making pictures remote (e.g. BULB) without touching the camera. RCCDroid may help you to check, if your equipment is compatible with the App.
Further features, like Timelaps or Star Trail are provided with the Pro-Version. Please always start with the free RCCDroid-App, to be sure, that you like to continue with RCCDroidPro.


What devices are supported by RCCDroid/Pro?

1. Camera: 


  • ILCA-68, ILCA-77M2
  • ILCE-5000, ILCE-5100, ILCE-6000, ILCE-6300
  • ILCE-7, ILCE-7M2, ILCE-7R, ILCE-7S
  • SLT-A58 , SLT-A99/A99V
  • DSLR-A700 , DSLR-A850 , DSLR-A900


    2. Android Device
    - At least Android 3.1
    - It is important, that your Android powered devices are supporting the so called USB Host Mode (including hardware AND software). Please check the prerequisites with the free Google Play App: 'USB Host Diagnostics'.
    USB Host Diagnostics

    The result must contain the following line:
    3rd party apps                    Full
    then your device meets the requirements.

    See here for more details:
    USB Host Mode

    3. Cable:
    You will need an OTG-Adapter and a suitable USB cable fitting to your camera
    Please do not use too long cables. Connect OTG-Adapter to your Android device directly (not to the camera !)

    Example OTG Adapter

    A58/A99/A700
    Mini/Micro-B plug
    |
    | USB cable (usually included in camera package)
    |
    Standard-A plug

    Standard-A receptacle
    |
    | OTG adapter (e.g.
    |
    Micro-B plug
    AndroidDevice


    Why does RCCDroidPro needs so much Android permissions ?

    RCCDroid Pro has much more features than RCCDroid. The use of special hardware features (e.g. Bluetooth, GPS oder Microphone) needs the required permission.


    Why do I have to adapt the default folder for the pictures ?

    We recommend to adapt the path at the first start of RCCDroid/Pro, because without a valid destination it will not be possible to make pictures.
    The App tries to use a default path of Android system (usually the 'Pictures'-folder). If the path is not available (on the Android device), or is not writable there will be no connection to the camera and the shutter will be locked.



    Why is a connection to camera not possible ?

    Please check
    - Hardware and software prerequisites mentioned above
    - Check USB Host mode with 'USB Host Diagnostics'  Link
          Please follow the procedure 'Start diagnostics'
         
    The result must contain the following line:
    3rd party apps                    Full
    then your device meets the requirements.

    - Is camera in 'PC-connection' mode ? (check via camera menu)
    - Default Folder after start of RCCDroid
    In case of serious connection problems please write an email to
      info(at)rccdroid.glensk.com
    and attach the screenshot of USB Host Diagnostics plus the RCCDroid screensshot.


    Why is Shot and Bulb locked in free version of RCCDroid ?

    Free RCCDroid is not able to handle continous shooting in Drive Mode of camera. There will be an error sign in the Drive M. field of App. Please switch camera drive mode to single shooting.


    The App crashed, what can I do ?


    We always try to deliver clean software. Nevertheless it might happen, due to programming mistakes or system problems, that the App crashes. Please help us to improve the RCCDroid software. After a crash, there will be an option to leave a short comment. Please give us a hint what has happened there. Maybe you are able to find a situation, where an error always happens. Please write an email to us in this case and try to describe the procedure to repeat the error. Thank you in advance !


    Why are the taken pictures stored on the Android Device ?

    This is not a problem of the app, but a part of the Sony firmware. Even the Sony Software for Windows does the same. We are so sorry, but we cannot overcome this behaviour. There is a little workaround, if you like to have the pictures on your camera. Please stop RCCDroid at the end of the shooting. Put your camera via menu in 'Mass Storage' Mode. Use any Android filemanager to copy the pictures from your Android device back to camera.



    Why do filenames have a prefix ?

    The names of the pictures are given by the camera software. Under specific circumstances it may come to duplicate filenames. This must be prevented, because pictures may be overwritten. Therefore RCCDroid is using a prefix for the Sony picturenames. If you do not like this, it is an option to switch of prefexis in the settings. This may be useful if you like to use some other software e.g for timelaps. However we do not recommend this to prevent loss of data !



    Why are some settings deactivated (grayed)  ?

    If your Android device does not have the necessary hardware for some options (e.g. Bluetooth, GPS, ..), you will not be able to activate them in the settings.


    Does RCCDroid support A57, A77, A65, A55, NEX .... ?

    No !
    We are so sorry, but the Sony Firm- and/or Hardware of these models is not able to communicate with tethering software. ONLY the following models can work with RCCDroid:


    • ILCE-5000, ILCE-6000, ILCE-7, ILCE-7R
    • DSLR-A700, DSLR-A850, DSLR-A900
    • SLT-A58, SLT-A99, SLT-A99V
    Please do NOT ask for support for other models.



    Does RCCDroid provide a liveview function ?

    Liveview für A7S, A7II and A77II is possible now !
    Sony firmware for other models is not able to send liveview data to tethering software.


    Can I store pictures on external SD-card of my Android device ?

    Sure, please change default folder via settings. You can climb up in the filesystem tree by touching '..'.  Please change to filesystem /mnt. There you should find the external SD-cards (the names depend on your device and Android version).

    Since Android 4.4. (Kitkat) it is not allowed for Third-Party Apps (like RCCDroid) to store data in every directory on external SD-Karte.
    Please use internal storage or this workaround:
    Create a directory on external storage with Android filemanager:

    ../Android/data/com.glensk.RCCDroid (or com.glensk.RCCDroidPro)

    Afterthat please make this directory to Default Folder in settings and reboot your Android device.
    ATTENTION: This directory will be deleted after deinstallation of App !!!
    Take care to save your pictures BEFORE deinstallation. 



    Is there a Manual ?

    Sure ! Siehe :
    Manual


    Is RCCDroid Open Source ?

    No !


    What features are planned for future versions ?

    - Shutter release
    • via Motion detection of Android Device
    • via Motion detection from Android camera
    - WiFi Client
    - Timelapse HDR

    Please send a comment or email to us, if you would like to have other options.

        "Why this program not create folder for pictures automatically? Or find system folder for pictures? "
        The app starts to find the Android default pcitures folder with DIRECTORY_PICTURES and getExternalStorageDirectory(). Please check for more information:

    32. Hi, just suceeded in running your app after monthes I couldn't use it for my previous mobile couldn't do OTG :D
      Now, works well with my new Archos Helium 55 plus (Android 5.1 Lollipop) and an SLT58.
      As I always shoot JPG+RAW, each time I take a pic with RCCDroid, it shows the JPG then switches to an error message that could be translated to "media file not found". I think your app tries to display every file it receives but ARW files cannot be shown on the Android system. May be you could add an option in order to display (or not) only JPEG ones ?

      Hi
      Is a7sII also in the group of cameras that profit with Semi-Lifeview in you app?
      Can you specify what exactly Semi-Lifeview is? Is it just live view with low framerate?

        As we started to develop RCCDroid, no Sony Alpha was able to display real liveview via USB. What we called 'Semi-Liveview', was the ability to transfer the taken picture to an Android display.

        In the meantime some of the Sony cameras have the option to transfer liveview data over USB, so that our app is able to show it on display (real liveview). This function is documented for A7S, A7II, A77II and A6300. We assume, that all newer models will have this option as well, but for now (status April 08. 2016) we do not really know, because we do not own A7SII. You are invited to install RCCDRoidPro and make a test. Please let us (and other interested users) know, if it works.

    48. Hello,
      Using my Sony A6300 and Android 7" tablet, Live view is very small and pixelated, and the light metering does not update on the tablet screen - it stays at 0.0 .. Is this normal? will there be updates to make the Live View more full-screen and contain the readouts on the screen of the camera on the tablet as well? It seems very limited at this point but I am happy to support a developer so I'm not complaining.

        The live view 'window' can be moved and it's size can be adapted by gestures. We do not display liveview in full resolution to prevent an overload of cpu usage, because each picture must be decoded. In next version resolution may be changed, because new multicore processors have enough resources.

        There is no light metering displayed in app, because this data is not send over USB. Please read our online manual for a detailed description of the values showed on display.

      2. PS: Maybe the ability to set the resolution in the app? I've used other apps (DSLR Controller for my canon) and the tablet was able to handle full resolution. My tablet is a 3 year old Google Nexus so not too powerful by today's standards. Full screen high rez would be awesome ;)

      I want use this app for timelapses, but at the same time i am concerned about shutter actuations. I know I can enable silent shutter in camera settings. Does this app override the silent shutter setting like Sony's remote API does or it supports silent shooting for a6300.

        RCCDroid does not override any settings made in camera. USB interface works similar to all manual settings done on camera. Releasing shutter via RCCDRoid does the same, as if you touch shutter on camera. So, if silent shutter is enabled, our app does not change anything.

    50. This app sounds awesome. My only question before installing, do the pictures save on the camera or phone? I'm looking for a solution to do 3 exposure HDR +-2 stops without touching the camera. Thanks

    51. If I read the information correctly RCCDroidPro is an app installed on an android device then that device USB connects to my camera allowing me to adjust all camera settings without a PC or Mac tethered to the camera?

        sure, it is the same procedure used for other apps. Please start Google Play Store App, go to your apps and start update (if it is nit done automatically).

      I'm using RCCdroidPro, Galaxy Tab A, Sony A6000. FYI - When first connected, I sometime have to hit rccdroid/Reset, before the camera will connect. After it does connect, the I can successfully take single images. However, when attempting the Bulb Intervalometer, I have been unable to change the various variables (exposure time, interval, etc) in Settings. I change a number & hit OK, but the number reverts back to the default, Changing Drive M between DrvMode & BulbInterval has no apparent effect. None of the direct entry variables in Setting can be changed. The Delay slider in AutoShots does change, and the Default Folder does change.

      Thanks to Tech Support's guidance, this problem was quickly solved. RCCdroidPro works well & as designed. As a new user, initially I did not understand Settings variables can be changed by either direct entry or by sliding. Within Settings, when a given variable is selected, a window will popup mid-screen displaying the current variable's value. A numeric keypad will also be displayed at the screen bottom. When a new number is touched (selected), it will display in the variable window, however it will not be recognized by the program until the keypad Done button is touched. Then to execute the change, the OK button in the variable window needs to be touched. Alternatively, variables can be changed by simply sliding the variable displayed number up or down and then touching OK to execute. Thanks for a great program.

    55. Any chance you have tested this with A7Rii? I am trying with Note 10.1 2014 and Huawei Mediapad X2 and both passed the USB test but still wont ever connect to the camera.
      I am happy to pay for it.
      Thanks

        A7RII should work in the same way, like the other Sony Alpha models. Would you please send us your USB test result (screenshot) by email ?
        Did you follow the connection procedure described here in our Quickstart section ?

    58. Hi. I am hoping to use your app to trigger 2 (twinned) sony a6000 cameras simultaneously for 3d still photos. I need synchronization to be accurate enough for action shots. Can I accomplish that with your app? Thank you!

      Hi, I'm using A77II and Tab A. The camera is connected and I can take a simple picture by the Shot button. But it is all I can do, no settings, no controls, no exposure or speed or iso, no bulb. I can only activate the shutter. Is it normal? What else can I do? Thanks

        RAW files will be tranferred to destination folder on Android device, if RAW option is switched on in camera.

    62. Hi, this is my 3rd time trying to get it to work before buying the Pro version but I am still stuck at the point, i could not set the default folder to microSD card on my Samsung Galaxy S7 + Sandisk microSD card.

      - No problem connecting to the camera and taking pic

      - Followed the FAQ, using File Manager in S7, created com.glensk.RCCdroid folder in ../mnt/sdcard/android/data

      - When trying to change the setting, browsed the folder from ../mnt/sdcard/android/data , I could not locate the folder created. Vefify again from File Manager and i can see the folder

      - Tried restarting the phone, check File Manager, the folder is there. Launch App trying to change default saving location, still could not see that particular in the selection when browsed to ../mnt/sdcard/andorid/data folder

      - Is there anything else I can try ? Would really wish to get it to work and get the pro version because needed the advance bracketing features and also for timelapse purpose. My internal storage is just too small.

      Phone Samsung S7, Android Version 7.0


      Thank you.
