Can't sniff some packets


So I'm trying to diagnose the communication between a camera(with wifi) that I have, to an application in my android phone. I'm trying to do it by MITM with WireShark in my PC. The connection goes like this: image description

The PC is connected to the camera's hotspot, and the phone is connected to the PC's hotspot(which means the phone and the cameras are connected indirectly).

The communication is working - when I press the capture button in the phone it does take a pic in the camera. But when I try to sniff this "take an image" packet in WireShark I can't see it. Actually, I don't see any packet from the phone). I do see all along packets from camera) - which is the live stream packets.

Why can't I see the packets from my phone to the camera?

Thanks, Halfon
