What is the maximum distance between the camera and smartphone when using PlayMemories Mobile?

    There are several environmental factors that can reduce the maximum range between a Sony® Wi-Fi® compatible camera and a mobile device using Imaging Edge® Mobile (PlayMemories Mobile™ successor) app. Given ideal environmental conditions, the recommended maximum distance a camera can be connected to a mobile device is less than 5 meters or 16 feet.


    • The connection distance is just a guideline, and varies depending on the model.
    • Not all cameras or camcorders have Wi-Fi capability. To see if your unit has Wi-Fi capabilities, check the supplied manual. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
