Re: Input port for remote control on sony NEX cams

The lack of an input port bothered me with the NEX 6.  I wanted to use my NEX 6 for a robotic camera head that I did for Channel 9, but I needed a wired trigger that I could control.  Opening up the camera to solder in that type of control was too risky for me.

Are you looking to remote contol the camera from a distance?  There is a solution that works with RC controllers called gentLED-shutterPLUS , it's designed for aerial use.  They also have remote switches that can operate their IR triggers without being within the line of site.
