Just a simple question, leaving the remote control always on,what is the side effects? on some cameras it drains the battery, how about Sony A7 cameras?

Thanks

You need to specify your question, there is a slight difference in the behaviour of the A7x cameras. Are you referring to the IR remote mode, or the remote app, or a wired remote to the USB port?

IR remote mode

The camera will not go into sleep mode while the camera is turned on with this setting enabled. So yes, it's a huge battery suck. I advise only turning it on when you need it.

Okay, thanks everyone, now I have to find an easy way to enable it when needed without going deep to the menu, anyone knows a shortcut to that?

I am using A7RII
