  • Make sure firmware is up to date (on my alpha 6300 v2.01), if you don't upgrade you will be stuck on 'Connecting':
    • This is tricky to install on Catalina
    • Download firmware first from Sony website, google your camera name + firmware update
    • The update will not run on Catalina, you have to use this guide
  • Download and install Sony webcam application
  • Restart Mac
  • You will not see an application, but the app is running in the background.
  • Now follow this guide to make it connect to your camera.
