    Can you use the a Sony camera (a6000) tethered?  I'm concerned that if I have to log m laptop into the camera's wifi then it will cause issues with my wifi printers and photo share.   My plan is to use the a6000 with a Surface Pro, and a wifi printer set away from the camera, but I also want to run photo share

    With Sony RX10 works, but sometimes the picture stutters. On the monitor, the image does not move. The camera is adorned with a good picture and prints. Jam is 70 images Then the camera takes away well.
    It is best to use a manual lens or disable AF to the camera from focusing. As it is dark, the camera focuses 0.5-2 sec.
    How will I have time to check with the A77 II.

    Hello, can I use a SONY A6000 with a PC (without wifi) ?

    Does the cable connection work? I tried to connect this model to a pc, then to a laptop using a cable, the camera works with Sony "Remote Camera Control" but the dslrBooth is not recognizing the camera.

    Any help?

    If my computer is connected to my sony camera through wifi, does that mean that I can't connect to the internet at the same time and upload any photos?

    Jason, that is true, BUT I bought a small USB wifi stick for about $15 from Amazon and my computer then allows 2 wifi connections. I connect to the camera with one and internet with other and it works just fine. Maybe not ideal, but it works.
