    Hey all.

    First of all I must say that this camera takes GREAT images. I normally research a camera for days before making a purchase. This time I just jumped I. Based on reviews. Wow, I am impressed.

    I've installed 1.02 firmware.
    I have the play memories app.
    I have my soft button set to default, "view on smartphone" (or whatever) selected.

    The instructions, and YouTube, show that when I press the "wifi" button that it brings up a screen that will allow me to select the cameras wifi, and a password.

    However, when I press the same soft button "view on smartphone" the camera enters a mode where something like a orange ish focus or metering box comes up. It's some sort of shooting mode.

    Any ideas?

    Now on the wifi connection. Is this a connection between the camera and smart phone only. Or am i actually looking to connect to an external wifi and transfer the images over that hot spot?

    Thanks in advance!
