Sony a7 III FTP Workflow help / suggestions

I was excited about the FTP options on the camera but..

The problem is, it has no option to ‘upload latest or failed only’

Here is my issue.

I want to have photos automatically FTP’d as currently are – of course when the camera is offline or service not available I would prefer it to retry when it does have a connection – but this does not seem to be an option at all.

I can see no way to do this automatically or even via the camera – only ftp all images again or images taken today. The issue with that is, i want to curate and clean up the images periodically.

The only option i see is to:

  • turn off auto ftp, once ftp’d then format the card – but this method has several drawbacks. (card life, hassle, etc)

Any suggestions? I really like the auto ftp but like I said, i want to curate/remove many of the photos before adding them to my permanent collection.

Thanks in advance.
