OpenMemories App Shown on Camera's Application Tab
DHI Enterprises shows us how to install a third party application for Sony Cameras which support the PlayMemories Camera Apps. The third party OpenMemories AppStore can now be installed using the same method shown.
from the OpenMemories AppStore developer: Is it safe?
This is an experiment in a very early stage. All information has been found through reverse engineering. Even though everything worked fine for our developers, it could cause harm to your hardware. If you break your camera, you get to keep both pieces. We won't take any responsibility.
However, this seems to be safer than tampering with your camera firmware directly. We're just interacting with the isolated Android subsystem. Apps you install this way can be uninstalled in the applications manager. In the worst case, a factory reset of the camera clears all data on the Android partitions.

Sony A7 ii with a Mamiya 645 80mm f/1.9 lens via Kipon Baveyes Focal Reducer.
Here is a review of the Kipon Baveyes medium format lens focal reducer adapter for Sony A7 cameras. This adapter has a lens element that concentrates the medium format image circle down to the size of a 24x36mm sensor of the Sony A7 cameras with a 0.7x factor. The 80mm lens above has an equivalent focal length of 56mm. The concentrated light also gives us one stop of extra light. The f/1.9 is an equivalent f/1.36, a very fast medium format lens. This a manual focus lens adapter.

Shoot Timelapse Videos with Sony Alpha Cameras using Slow and Quick (S&Q) Motion Video Mode
Christopher Burress shows us how to take a time lapse video with his Sony a6500. He uses S&Q Mode which is found in the Video Settings. This is identical to the method we need to use on the new a7r iii. The cameras then combine all the files shot at one frame per second to a video shown at your set speed. The a7r ii required a PlayMemories app.
