Sony has released a free Touchless Shutter Camera app that allows you to release the shutter by simply waving your hand in front of the eye sensor of supported Sony cameras. (Download at PlayMemories).
With this app, you can simply hold your hand over the eye sensor to release the shutter. You can use this app to release the shutter without touching the camera, thus eliminating camera shake once and for all.
This application supports bulb-shooting mode with Sony a7S and a7II – to activate bulb-shooting with those cameras, hold your hand over the eye sensor once to start and again end the exposure.
You need to have a Sony PlayMemories account to access apps, if you don’t already have one set one up.
Please Note: Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan is not Supported.
Sony a7, a7R, a7S, a7II, a6000, NEX-6, NEX-5R, NEX-5T, HX400V, HX60V, RX100III
Requires built-in or optional finder device with eye sensor. Pop up the finder when using this application with a camera model which has a pop-up electronic finder
Before launching the app, make sure the [FINDER/MONITOR] or [FINDER/LCD Setting] that toggles image display targets is set to Auto.

great app! already using it.
any idea on why i can’t find the time-lapse app to download for my A7s?
Menu > Apps > PlayMemories Camera Apps
Will search for WiFi Access Point – Sign in if needed
Select “All” on left side menu and….wait….for the menu to open.
Sroll down half way you will see Time-lapse for $9.99
