Sony has released a new update for its Monitor & Control (M&C) mobile app that makes it easier for users to remotely observe and operate camera feeds on smartphones and tablets. Most notably, version 2.0.0 of the M&C app introduces a new Multi-Camera Monitoring feature that allows users to control and preview up to four cameras at once, much like the Final Cut Camera iOS app that Apple released in May.

While the M&C app is available for both iOS and Android, Sony’s new Multi-Camera Monitoring feature is exclusive to iPadOS. It supports both wired and wireless connections via Wi-Fi or hotspotting for shooting in remote locations. We’ve asked Sony if this feature will eventually be available to iPhone and Android users and will update this story if we hear back.

More broadly, the updated app now also supports a wider range of Sony cameras, including Burano, FX6, FX3, FX30, Alpha 1, Alpha 9 III, and Alpha 7S III models. Full Screen Monitoring which Sony says provides “an unobstructed view of live images” across all supported camera models is additionally available, resolving a long-standing gripe users had with camera feeds being cropped or resized on external displays.

The update sprinkles in other improvements, such as giving users the ability to select and customize up to three tools for their screen, and more intuitive controls for adjusting frame rate, sensitivity, shutter speed, ND filter, look, and white balance settings. Version 2.0.0 of the M&C app is available now as a free download via the App Store and Google Play.
