Sony PlayMemories Camera Apps is the world’s first application download service that allows you to download and install new functions on demand to boost the capabilities of your camera and enhance your digital imaging experience.
Users can expect even more features after the updates on the 26th of September, and here’s a list of FREE apps available for these 8 new countries:
- “Direct Upload” allows for the quick and easy uploading of photos taken with the camera to social networking site Facebook via a Wi-Fi connection. After the update, direct upload to Flickr is made possible.
- “Photo Retouch” gives you a suite of adjustments like brightness, saturation and contrast plus Soft Skin, re-size and other post-shooting effects.
- “Picture Effect” expands the range of artistic treatments available in the camera’s standard Picture Effect mode.
- “Smart Remote Control” gives users even greater freedom of control with the camera. This is especially helpful when taking group photos; users can control the camera’s exposure and shutter release using their linked smartphones or tablets (such as the Xperia Smartphone and Xperia Tablet). The photo taken will be sent directly to the phone or tablet for view or for “Direct Upload”. After the update, autofocus control will be added, and you can have adjustments for EV compensation, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance on your linked phone or tablet. In addition, MF Assist lets you accurately check focus of portraits and macro shots on your phone or tablet’s larger screen.
Now available in Singapore, Thailand, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, UAE, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, the Sony PlayMemories Camera Apps are supported by the new NEX-5T interchangeable lens camera as well as the NEX-5R and NEX-6.
