Hi,

I have a Sony A7 and Dragonframe.

I installed the program and connected the camera via USB. I cannot use live-view, but that seems to be normal. So I did a quick test and the result was good. After that I couldn't do much more and had to wait 4 months to get into stop-motion again.

I once more connected the camera via USB and took a picture, but after a view pictures, dragonframe did not recognize the camera. I tried it again, re-installed the software, used other cables, but still nothing.

it seems like the USB-out is broken, but why and how can this happen?

I wanted to tether via WIFI, but this also doesn't work anymore.

It worked the day before!

Funny thing is that my PC recognizes that the camera is connected, but won't transfer any data.

I tried every possible connection in the camera menu. Still nothing.

Does anybody know if this is a software problem?

Thanks!

PS: is there somebody out ther working with Digital Bolex for Stop Motion?

I shot some videos in stop Motion with this camera, but I have no remote control and therefore every picture is a bit different in extreme close ups because I have to touch the record button of the camera every single time by hand.

Hello! This problem with the cameras Sony a6000 and Sony Alpha A7.
That's what the Dragonframe site writes The Sony Alpha A7 provides a live view over HDMI. This camera requires a separate connection to the computer, via a Blackmagic capture device, to access the live view.

Sony Alpha a6300 and Sony Alpha A7II and others work without problems.

Here is the link  http://www.dragonframe.com/camera-setup/sony_alpha_a7/

Thank you.

The device is a bit over budget right now.

I can't open dragonframe.com with my browser since a few weeks..using firefox.

I guess I have to use my Bolex only and do the editing with Dragonframe.
