Still No Wireless Video Remotes?
I'm getting a T4i pretty soon to use as a B camera for video work. I'm looking for a non infrared wireless solution. I've seen ways to do it with laptop at the camera and a phone app, but I need a more minimal, quicker setup. I shoot mountain biking and snowboarding, often times in bad weather or with a small window before security shows up at an urban spot. Having to set up a laptop with it would be ridiculous. I can't use IR because the B camera could be up a hill or in a tree while I could be 200' away. If I have the main camera on a jib or a steadicam, I want to be able to reliably start and stop the other camera and focus on the main camera.
I have a remote I use for still photos that works every time. I can't imagine having to use IR on a remote camera. Does anyone have any experience with IR extenders? I could set up one on the camera, pointing at the sensor with a bracket and one with me that I fire the remote into. I'd like to be able to use the remote with my 1D as well, if possible.
