Many Sony PlayMemories cameras are delivered with a limited firmware, that does not allow GoCamera to control all available settings.
For instance, GoCamera can only control zoom and shutter functions of the Sony Alpha 6000 by default, and none of the available exposure settings. To enable GoCamera to use this functionality, an update of your camera's firmware or its apps is required.
