    Hello,
    On my travels I would really love to get my photos on the phone. I tried it via WiFi and installed the play memories app on the Sony NEX 6 and the apk on the Passport (playmemories mobile version 6.2.0). Although I can connect phone and camera via WiFi it's not possible to transfer pictures with the app. It seems that it doesn't recognise the camera properly.
    Any suggestions on that or anyone's setup is working?
    Are there maybe other ways like connecting a card reader or similar?
    Thanks a lot!

    The Passport has OTG usb. Just get the adapter (cheap on amazon) and transfer from a usb card reader. That's what I do when transferring large video files.

    There might be other apps that do work, My Passport connects fine with my Canon 70D, even if the connection process can be fiddly; it also depends on the router if you're connecting both to one: my mac needs to be connected via ethernet for the camera to see it via wifi; since no two macs see each other via wifi, seems like a (cheap *** ISP) router problem. At least with Canon you have the option to connect both phone and camera directly.

    Thank you for all your replies.

    I will try USB OTG first since I wasn't aware that the Passport is compatible. I hope the cheaper adapters work I'm going to buy one with SD card and USB slots in one.

    As a third-party app AuxiCam is working with direct wifi and I can do remote control, that's already a nice feature.

    Ages ago I bought a cheap one from E-bay (around $5) and it works great. Took forever to come from China though

    Damn unfortunately I bought an USB Type-C Card reader adapter and it looks like that the plug is the to wide? So the passport is no Type-C phone I suppose?! Is there another adapter Type-C - to normal USB which I can switch in between?

    Ahhh--mistake made, lesson learned. As far as I'm aware, there is no C to usb adapter (could be wrong about that), but save the Type C adapter because you will probably need it later on. Back to the drawing board, unfortunately.

    Thanks brookie, indeed lesson learned.
    Just to make sure would the following setup work?
    I'll buy a micro USB to female usb OTG adapter for to plug in the passport and then plug in the female usb an usb card reader adapter which I already have. This would make to adapters in a row.
    Or is it better to buy an all in one adapter?

    It's probably better to buy an all in one adapter or a simple adapter such as mine, but you can probably do anything with it. The Passport has excellent OTG abilities. Sometimes I connect a wireless mouse and keyboard to it. My setup includes a Lexar nano card USB adapter and a plain old USB otg adapter (very cheap from ebay). Not shown is the nano sd card plugged into the Lexar card reader. Of course, you have the larger sd card so your adapter will be different. Any way to connect or transfer photos from a camera?
