Sony RMT-P1BT Reviews

Great for the Sony A7iv

By Justin

The remote is awesome. Not only can you control the camera shutter but you can also use it to record videos as well. It being Bluetooth means you don't have to point it directly at the camera to make it work and you can really see why it is so expensive because of the build quality. There is a little rubber piece your finger grips on the bottom of the remote and the looped area at the bottom has a nice metal bar which feels strong. Also, the white icons on the buttons on the face of the remote are recessed so it will help keep the icons from rubbing off. But the best part is that when I press the button to record video, a red light illuminates at the top of the remote... and it stays on for the duration of the recording! It is always hard to tell when a movie is being recorded just by referencing the small screen on the camera. Sometimes I am far from the screen to confirm. This remote gives me another way to check and confirm that I am actually recording. Definitely worth $78!

The remote paired instantly with my RX100 VII, and works as it should. Much simpler & easier than dealing with the Imaging Edge Mobile app on my phone.

Better than standard remotes and does smooth zoom for videos

Poor Quality

After 5 or 6 uses in the field, the AF button sticks and will not function. Sporadic Bluetooth communication with Sony Camera. Totally unreliable. Piece of crap.

Not What I Expected from Sony

In someone else's hands this remote might be the best thing ever. In my hands its useless. It does turn on but it won't pair with my Sony a7R3A. I worked on it for over an hour will no success. If anybody wants it just let me know.

Gets stuck. Sometimes just would not trigger, other times keeps triggering until pressed again. Dreadful thing.

Works as it should.

Works great with A7IV, while many other sub brand remotes can work with other SONY models but not A7IV.

Very Handy and Easy to use

Pairs easily with my A7r IV. Small and very portable and a great addition to my bag. I mostly use it for long exposures and shots where I am holding an off camera flash. Makes my life so much easier than having to run to the spot I want the light after triggering the self timer.

Can I control several cameras at once? I.e start and stop video recording.
Asked by: Brian
No, you cannot. The Sony RMT-P1BT Wireless Remote Commander, B&H # SORMTP1BT, can only be paired to one camera at a time via Bluetooth. To use the remote with a new camera, it would have to be un-paired from the first camera, so it cannot control multiple cameras simultaneously.

This would use a lithium coin cell battery, this battery is replaceable. But do to that, it is unable to be shipped outside of the US. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

I just got this today. I have one question to the staff: Does this device turns off or is it on all the time?
Asked by: Johnny
The remote will turn off on its own, but it is recommended to keep the lock switch engaged when storing it to prevent it from turning on by accident.
