How can I pair my Sony Camera with PhotoSync to transfer photos/videos or enable remote shooting?

After successful configuration you will be able to transfer photos / videos from your Sony camera to your iPhone / iPad over Wi-Fi. PhotoSync also enables shoot & transfer (wireless tethering): Photos & videos are transferred to your iPhone / iPad right after shooting. Optionally, immediate transfer to remote locations (computer, NAS, cloud) can be configured, plus photo booth support over HDMI & Airplay to a big TV screen is also possible.
