@JoNorvelleWalker - have you tried or been able to transfer pix to your desktop using WiFi?  I tried today, and basically it's not supported any more - at least not on my A6000 with Sony software (play memories). Once I upgraded to OS 11.whatever (Big Sur), that was all she wrote.

 

Still can transfer to my iOtherstuff though (mobile works).

 

 

Yes, took three days to set up, but is fast and works great.  My desktop, however, is Windows.  And I am not using the Sony software.  Nonetheless I'm pretty sure you could do the same with Apple.

 

What I did was install the Windows FTP server.  The FTP server is a component of Windows but is not installed by default.  I set up a user account for the camera and created a directory for the camera to upload pictures to.

 

On the camera I entered the IP address of the server (in other words the IP address of my desktop), the user name, and password.  (The camera was already set up on the WiFi network.)

 

Now to up load pictures I press the display button on the camera, then the Fn button (which in display mode is the image upload button).  The camera takes a moment to connect to WiFi, then I select my images to transfer.  When the ones I want are selected I press the menu button to begin the transfer.  When the transfer is complete the camera asks if I want to up load more images.  If not, the process is finished and the pictures are in the directory I specified.

 

 

Edit:  I forgot to mention, I also set up an FTP server on my iPad.  That works too.  The camera supports connections to three different FTP servers.  Sony has promised new firmware to increase the FTP server count to nine.

 

Now if I could only up load pictures to my Roomba...
