Sony (Without PlayMemories Apps) Connection Guide

Welcome to the Sony connection guide! The process of connecting Cascable to your camera is usually very simple. This guide will walk you through the steps.

Important! This guide is for Sony cameras that don’t support on-camera PlayMemories apps, which began with the α9 in mid-2017, and includes the α7R III and α7 III models. If your camera was introduced before these cameras or supports on-camera PlayMemories apps, you must follow our Sony (With PlayMemories Apps) connection guide.
