Connecting the Sony DSC-RX100 II Camera to the Sony Xperia Tablet Z Using NFC

Today I recorded a short video showing how to connect the Sony DSC-RX100 II camera to the Xperia Tablet Z, an Android tablet made by Sony. The RX100 II (also known as the RX100M2) and the Tablet Z both have built-in Wi-Fi capability, and also built-in NFC, or Near Field Communication. With NFC, the two devices can establish a Wi-Fi communication just by touching them together.

When I first tried this a couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t sure exactly where the NFC areas were or how closely you have to touch them together.  I found out where the areas are; you have to find a fancy-looking capital N somewhere on the device. As for the closeness, you really have to physically touch those two N-areas together to get the connection to work.

Anyway, here is a short video I posted today on YouTube to show how this works for transferring an image from the camera to the tablet.

I will discuss this process and many other topics in my guide book to the RX100 II, which should be published by late September or early October 2013.

      I have not had experience with any other NFC-enabled camera, phone, or tablet. I imagine the process would be similar, but I unfortunately don’t have a definitive answer.
