    Can anyone recommend a wireless remote control for the NEX-7. I purchased the JJC RM-S1, but I can't manage to get it to work. Does anyone else have this remote control? And does it work with an NEX-7?

    I use this one. Basic but no issues with it.

    I'm going to ask the obvious question here (someone has to ;) )- do you have the camera drive mode set to remote?

    Jim, yes, I do have the camera drive mode set to remote. I even had the battery checked at a local battery shop and it was in working order.

    Well, given the incredibly expensive and intricate engineering that these display it isn't beyond possibility that you got a dud. :p

    Maybe try bending prongs in the battery compartment to insure the battery is making good contact. The one I use cost even less than the one Colin linked. [shrug]

    Thanks for the advice, Jim. I fooled around with the battery compartment and now it's working. Must not have been making contact, as you suggested.
