Focus setting with wireless remote?
Mar 1, 2012

Hi folks, I did do a search on this topic but can't find an answer. I am interested in buying a wireless remote for my 5N but I'd like to hear from users on how half-shutter press works.

Right now I shot with a monopod, with auto-focus. I often use the timer when I want to place the camera where my hands can't get to it--over a fence, over a cliff, over a lake, etc. This is why I am interested in a remote, I love the results but want to be free of the restraints of the single shot timer.

How does the remote handle half-press shutter for autofocus? Are you happy with your wireless remote?

Thanks!
