So how does the PlayMemories Apps work on the Sony NEX-5R? Here is a video from Sony Australia showing the whole procedure from connecting to the PlayMemories store via WiFi, selecting a new PM App, downloading wirelessly, and installing the PM App on the NEX-5R.

Installing PlayMemories App on NEX-5R

Here are the PlayMemories Apps that we already need:
  • Time Lapse - no need for an intervalometer, separate units from Canon and Nikon are over $100.
  • Smart Remote Control - view what the camera sees from your phone or tablet and control the shutter.
  • Bracket Pro - for the HDR (high dynamic range) junkies. Let's hope it allows for +3 / -3 EV range in multiple steps.

We hope that all the apps are available in all shooting modes. I can already see all the HDR time lapse movies coming from the NEX-5R with PlayMemories Apps.

The camera app is nothing new. Here are Minolta Expansion Cards first introduced in 1989 with the release of the Minolta Maxxum / Dynax / Alpha 5000i.
