This device allows you to easily control your camera's shutter via IR signal (your camera must support IR control function). This controller connects to an available channel on your model's receiver, so it can be setup on a switch, stick or knob. Great for aerial photography!
Different camera brands utilize different IR signal so be sure to pick the appropriate controller for your camera (Canon, Sony or Nikon).
Camera Brand: Sony
After thinking what could i do in the camera to use the IR shutter, i noticed that my sony a6000 has a tiny black window wich is the IR receiver. I conected all the devices of my fpv system and put the shutter faced with the led side to the tiny window of my camera. It worked perfect, just for pictures. It doesn't work with video recording.
Ps. I had to select the Remote Ctrl option in my camera settings.Works well with a Sony NEX 5T, if you leave it switched on, it will activate the camera (photo)approx once a sec continuous. It does not activate Video.Hello, I confirm this IR shutter works on a Sony Alpha NEX-7.
Dont forget to select the "Remote Cdr." mode in the "Drive mode" menu.Small as a postal stamp. Light, easy to install either with radio receiver or APM.. Can confirm that it works with SONY NEX 5NFantastic item, I use them all the time. Nice feel and finish. Easy to set up and get working. Good price and product,sweet.
