IR Remote Codes for NEX5 (or compatible alpha DSLR)

Can anyone with a Sony remote RMT-DSLR1 (and for instance a Philips Pronto) post the IR codes for Shutter and 2 seconds Shutter for me?

I've ordered a cheap Jianisi remote, but it's not working. The official remote should be on it's way in 3 weeks, but I don't want do wait that long.

Bert.

I wonder if an iPhone can be set up as a remote? Anyone know?

guys have you seen this article:

http://sonyalphanex.blogspot.com/2010/07/sony-nex-5-intervalometer-for-time.html

I guess with tricks it's totally possible. An iPhone could do that if you buy the little IR receptor that you plug to the miniJack. (many apps that makes the Iphone become a universal remote thanks to it).

I'd say it's definitely something to try!! But we would need a lil genious around here that knows well computers to take the signal of the NEX, put in a small app and configure simple function like shutter speed shots

or do you think i could do the same thing with the original remote from Sony ?
I really wanna try Time Laps video!

Found these, but they come up as corrupt codes in my Pronto editors:

Shutter:

0000 0067 0000 0015 0060 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 03f6

2s Shutter:

0000 0067 0000 0015 0060 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 03f6

Anyone?

I don't think you could use an iPhone, they don't have IR on them. Unless there is a bluteooth to IR convertor somewhere.

I have seen a 3.5mm to IR convertor for iPhone though. Not sure if it works.

Re: IR Remote Codes for NEX5 (or compatible alpha DSLR)

The iPhone idea is awesome! I am an iPhone app dev and I could make an app that does that.

I just googled and there are ir adapters that plug into the dock or the headphone Jack, but they are expensive. 50$ and up. The redeye one that plugs into the headphone Jack looks best to me. But 50$ is to expensive for a toy like that for me personally!

What kind of features would you like to see? Shooting pictures in intervals is the only one that's coming to my mind.

Hi Guys,

I used the Rubber-band, Shoe-lase around the Nex shutter button to do a time laps.

At night time it is easy. I put it into continuous shutter mode and control the shutter speed by adjusting Aperture and ISO.

This is my first time doing a Time Lapse so there is camera shake. For my defense it was -5°c and i was freezing for 2 hours.

Other method to do the time laps is to use the 2 second delay shutter or 10 second delay shutter.Both of this modes shoots continuously if you hold the shutter button. SO the camera will take a pic a every two seconds or 3-5 pics at every 10 seconds.. Just stap a ruber band or a shoe lase around the shutter button then put a rolled paper ball between rubber band and the shutter button , camera will start firring continuously.

Hope this will help to do a time laps with out a IR intervalometer.
