    Hello folks,

    I was looking into buying a remote for my camera (that is a NEX-3N), and I found out that Sony has released an official one with a lot of arguable extra features (like power zoom control and such) : http://store.sony.com/gsi/webstore/...3xtt-tabRwOsyG6tnEzxnCLl_hJxIec?SKU=27-RMVPR1

    I was wondering if any of you was aware of any *cheap* alternative to this remote, without the fancy stuff (like this http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Remote-Shutt...=Camera_Camcorder_Remotes&hash=item2a1eb6b242)

    Matthieu,

    I don't think the 3N or any 3 series has an IR sensor. The 5 series does, it's a little square in the handgrip.

    I found couple of days ago the pinout of the new remote connector. I haven't seen copies of that remote yet but there may be soon. On the other hand nobody seems to make flashes for the new Sony ISO hot shoe.

    The new remote is attached to micro usb connector so I think it is not DIYable and you can't get the connector anywhere anyways.

    How about using your phone as your remote since the 3N got wifi?

    Well the 3N doesn't have wifi nor IR receiver. I guess that's one of the reason they released a specific wired remote :-/

    Wired remotes are better anyway, although I bought a wireless Sony one because I didn't want to pay €70 for a remote.
