IR-remote control - camera blocked for 2nd shot

Hi all,

for long time I use a cheap IR-remote control zu trigger my Sony cameras. But now for a new project I need several consecutive pictures. I found that the camera (A7riv and a6300) often seem to be blocked after the first exposure and it needs some seconds for the second shot (while constantly tapping the button on the remote) while on a a6400 I get a shot each time I press the remote control. The IR-LED was directly orientated to the camera and after pausing the first shot comes exactly when I press the remote but not so the 2./3./4.....

Any ideas how to overcome this? Would a bluetooth remote control be better?

regards

Lothar
