  • 1 Touch operation (ILCE-1, ILCE-9M3, or ILCE-9M2 only)

    By clicking on a part of the image, you can operate the camera just like you would operate the touch screen on the camera itself.
    To cancel tracking, click [Cancel].

  • 2 Zoom operation

    • It is enabled when a power zoom lens is attached.
    • Slide the arrows in the center toward the edges to increase the zoom speed. (The area near the center is slower, and the speed increases as you slide toward either edge.)
    • You can also set the zoom speed during shooting standby on the camera.

      On the camera, select MENU → (Shooting) → [Zoom] → [ Zoom Speed (Remote commander)] (ILCE-1)/ [Remote Zoom Speed](ILCE-9M3)→ [Speed Type] → [Fix], then choose a setting under [Fixed Speed STBY] → [1 (Slow) to 8 (Fast)].

  • 3 Focus operation

    This function is used for DMF (direct manual focus) mode and MF (Manual Focus) mode.

    • In order to use Remote Camera Tool to switch the AF mode to DMF or MF, the focus mode switch of the lens must be in the “AF” position.
    • When the focus area is set to Flexible Spot, the focus frame moves to the position where you click on the image.
