while researching for remote control options for the A7/r , I recently bought this item from Australiahttp://www.ebay.de/itm/270845125207?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
for some bucks it works pretty good - but - as it seems as all IR remotes is only reacting in a limited angle to hit the IR sensor in the camera.
Does anyone know an easy solution to make this working more usable - aka - from more sidewards to the camera or even from behind ?
I have already searched the internet, some people tell you how to pimp the IR controls with reflecting aluminium foliage in the case, not very elegant
but probably also not solving the angle problem. Maybe some part, like a tiny "fisheye lens" that could be attached to the sensor of the camera body ?
I have also found another solution from the USA, a friend there Jaime Aguirre, makes an adapter cable from the Sony proprietary plug to a 2,5mm plug so you can use
e.g. a Hähnel Giga T Pro II. see herehttp://www.aerovisible.com/blog/product/trigger-your-sony-a7-a7r-wirelessly/
I know the Sony app and use it on my android tablet, but I wanted something more basic and small for on the road and no WLan around. carrying a WLan hotpoint
would be a solution, but this seems to be some kind of a tec overkill.
