I'm planning to buy a remote commander but there is no more corded version in any area that I looked into. I have few questions regarding the Wireless remote:

I picked up a cheap wireless remote from Amazon a while ago.  Infra red.

1. Does it focus if I press the shutter button (the half-press thing effect)?

Not a half press as such, but it will cause the camera to focus prior to opening the shutter.  Two buttons - one shoots immediately, the other applies a 2 second delay.

2. Can I replace the battery once I consumed it, and how long is the battery life?

Still on my first battery, but it is replaceable.

3. Other things I should know before buying this. I really prefer the corded though, but new year is coming I need something for fireworks.

The sensor is on the front of the camera, so no shots if you're behind it. If you're near the camera you can lean over and point it downwards.  Indoors the IR command may bounce off interior surfaces, but no hope of that outside.

Thank you.
