Need a very simple, reliable, wireless shutter release for A7Rii and iii.

I'm looking or a simple WIRELESS shutter release that works from BEHIND the A7Rii and iii for long exposures, including bulb.

All is need is the 1 button to release the shutter. I don't need a 2 second self timer, a burst, an Intervalometer or delayed shutter release. Just a simple, basic shutter release.

AND, I don't want to have to be in front of the camera to trigger the shutter....

Any recommendations?

Many thanks.

Yes.

You need to set the camera bulb and shutter release to bulb. I used it on some fireworks recently.

Not sure that link is to a true wireless remote ie it only works with line of sight....

This one connects with a 'dongle' but should get you what you want.

For the A7R2 there's also this: https://www.playmemoriescameraapps.com/portal/usbdetail.php?eid=IS9104-NPIA09014_00-C10005

And for both there's the Smart Remote Android and iPhone apps from Sony.
