The way this wireless camera control works with Sony cameras is that you simply connect up to the generated PortKeys WiFi network on the camera and then you will be able to control certain parameters. The parameters you can control depend on the camera being used. If you are using the a1, a9 II, a7C, FX3, RX10, a7S III and a7 IV you can control quite a few options on the monitor including the ability to do touch focusing. The FX30 and new ZV-E1 are not listed, but I assume this monitor may be able to work with those cameras.

On the BMPCC 4K, 6K, and 6K Pro you need to connect up the Bluetooth to the PortKeys monitor to enable camera control. The functionality you can adjust wirelessly on the monitor when using the Blackmagic cameras looks to be pretty comprehensive.

The monitor draws 9W and it can accept any 7-24V DC input. You can also power the monitor using any Sony-style NP-F battery.

The LH7P features the usual array of monitoring tools and you can also load up 3D LUTs. Another nice feature is that you can enable a 3D LUT on the HDMI output.
