Controlling the Sony DSC-RX100 II Camera Wirelessly Using the Sony Xperia Tablet Z

Today I put together a short video showing how to set up a wireless connection between the Sony DSC-RX100 II camera and the Sony Xperia Tablet Z using the NFC (Near Field Communication) system. With this system, you can just touch the NFC areas on the two devices (marked with a fancy N logo on the bottom of the camera and on the back of the tablet. When those two spots come into contact, the devices establish a Wi-Fi connection without having to have any menu options used. Once the connection is established, the camera can be controlled remotely by the tablet, using Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile app.  Here is the link to the video on YouTube:

There will be more information about the Wi-Fi abilities of the RX100 II and about its other features in Photographer’s Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100 II, coming in October 2013.  Please visit this site for updates on the status of that book.
