All I wanted to do was some simple Time-lapse! Easy right? WRONG! The system has no cable release, the ir port works half assed at times not Going off tin the middle of a set. And of course Sony didn't see fit to put this into the camera as a setting in the first place or in the firmware release. I suppose it's my own fault for getting the cam in the first place. It's a great system but in some ways severely limited.
Hate to say it, but it's definitely your own fault for getting the camera. If all you wanted to do was time-lapse, you should've done some research and would've found that the NEX-7 isn't really fit for it.
