    So, I just got the RMT-DSLR2 and am having a h**l of a time trying to get it to work with my NEX-6. I can get the arrow buttons to scroll through existing pictures, but I cannot get the shutter buttons on the remote to work.

    Has anyone experienced this? Not sure why this might be happening... :confused:

    Did you put the camera drive mode in remote?

    It's an easy thing to forget. Since I do 90% of my work off a tripod I just leave mine in remote. One less thing to remember/worry about. Does eat battery life though, since the LCD is on all the time. ;)

    I am finding that I am missing pretty straightforward things on my new NEX. I think I need to spend more time with it to help figure out where settings are; it is definitely not my favorite interface ;-)

    You will, eventually, determine a scheme that works for you. Everybody goes through it. It's like a rite of passage with NEX cameras. :p

    Indeed. My scheme consisted of bashing my head repeatedly with a ball-peen hammer. Every time I stopped, the NEX interface seems almost a pleasure in comparison. :rolleyes:

    I am glad to hear I am not the only one with those knots!
    I got so used to the Sony Alpha interface that it was almost instinctual to use. I have also become very accustomed to the Fuji X-Series, but the NEX is a constant struggle for me... :-(
    Really the interface is the only thing I don't like about the NEX.
