This remote works great with my real-estate photography. I'm able to get the perfect shots without moving my camera when pushing the shutter button. It also allows me to remotely take shots when my tripod is in tight places..

I finally learned how to use it

By Ming

I bought this unit a few years back and it was not my favorite, I thought it was not responsive. The problems are it does not trigger sometimes when you click the shutter button, and there was a lag. Until I figured out the problems recently. First, I found out the trigger is disabled when in auto review mode. After a trigger, I had 5 sec auto review. During the 5 sec, the trigger is disable and the camera will not response. If you want to do fast back to back triggers, turn off the auto review. Second, there is a lag when you click the shutter to the camera actually trigger. It caused by the auto focus. After I turn off the auto review and use manual focus, this remote is very responsive and trigger 100% of the time when I click the shutter button. Once I learned the tricks, I can use it reliably. But Sony could certainly improve.

Facilitates Selfies

I use it with my A7 R4 to facilitate taking pictures and making movies without having to move around to turn the camera on and off.

It does what it's supposed to do..

Yup, it works w/my A7ii, no problem. It is a line-of-sight remote, but for $30, it does its job. I got it for self video, and it is a time saver and a hassle-saver. The Still control has an additional 2" shutter delay button, which saves me from walking behind the camera for that adjustment. I do suggest putting velcro on the back of it, because it's so small and light, it can disappear easily.

question

I can't get mine to function with my a7R. Works fine with my a57 and a99. They both have Drive Menu options for wireless remote, but my a7R does not.What am I missing??
Asked by: Anonymous
Tom, scroll in the menu all the way over to the toolbox and turn the Remote Control option to on. They moved it in the menu. The instructions for the Remote Commander are older than the cameras and are now inaccurate.
