A wireless video monitor for iPhone

First Things First:

FieldMonitor not installing / not starting / crashing on your iDevice? Try a reset: hold down the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark, and keep holding them down until the Apple logo appears (about 10 seconds overall). After your iDevice restarts, try FieldMonitor again. If that doesn’t work, try deleting and reinstalling it. Still stuck? Contact me!

Important info:

You need a compatible Panasonic Lumix camera, Sony camera, or a Teradek H.264 transmitter (Cube 100, 200, 500, or 600 series, Clip, or VidiU) to use this app. Without a supported Panasonic, Sony, or Teradek, this app doesn't do anything useful!

Known Compatible Panasonic Cameras:

The following cameras have been tested with FieldMonitor and FieldMonitor displays their images and controls them properly:

DC-GH5, DMC-FZ300, DMC-G7, DMC-G85, DMC-GH4, DMC-GX7, DMC-GX85, DMC-LX10, DMC-LX100, DMC-ZS60, and DMC-ZS100.

Other cameras that work with Panasonic’s Image App should work with FieldMonitor. As I learn of other cameras that do (or do not) work with FieldMonitor, I will update this list. If you test a camera not on the list, please let me know if it works or not.

Known Compatible Sony Cameras:

FieldMonitor has been tested with the a6300, A7ii, A7Rii, and A7Sii. See the table here for compatible cameras: any camera supporting liveview and movie recording capability using Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile app. For the Alpha, HX, WX, and RX series, these cameras should work:

ILCE-7M2, ILCE-7RM2, ILCE-7S, ILCE-7SM2, ILCE-5100, ILCE-6300, ILCE-6500, DSC-HX60/V, DSC-HX80, DSC-HX90/V, DSC-HX400/V, DSC-WX500, DSC-RX10M2, DSC-RX10M3, DSC-RX100M3, DSC-RX100M4 and DSC-RX100M5.

These cameras must have the free Smart Remote Control installed from the PlayMemories Camera Apps Store to be controllable by FieldMonitor. With only Smart Remote Embedded available in the camera’s Application List, you can monitor the camera but not control it.

Sonys do not allow the use of Picture Profiles in Wi-Fi remote mode. You cannot shoot in S-Log2 or S-Log3 while using Wi-Fi at the same time.
