     What does redNEX do?

redNEX is an innovative remote for your NEX camera. Why? for 2 reasons: it is the first and ONLY remote that lets you trigger VIDEO RECORDING remotely on your camera. And... you can do so from up to 15 meters away! And yes... you can trigger photos too. :) [ top ]

     What cameras are compatible with redNEX?

     How does redNEX work?

Well, it's a remote, and we wanted it to keep it simple, and compatible with most models of cameras of the brand. So first thing you must remember is:
- set your camera to "REMOTE Cdr." (check your cameras manual).
- then you must point the remote vagally to the area where your cameras IR receiver is (probably in front, right side of the camera);
- For photo, all you do is press the PHOTO button (top button) on your remote. The camera will then take a photo. Depending on what MODE your are, it may prefocus before the shot.
- For video it depends on your camera model: most models you just press the VIDEO button (bottom button) of your remote, and your camera will start recording video. Another button press and it will stop recording and save the movie to the memory card. On same older camera models, to start video you must press VIDEO and PHOTO one after the other quick. This will start recording. just press VIDEO button again to stop it.

     What is the range of the redNEX remote?

redNEX is a long range infrared remote. infrared means if must be in range and in line-of-sight of your cameras infrared receiver. Long range means you can trigger it from 15 meters (50 ft) away or even more, depending on several factors.
First there shouldn't be no obstacles blocking the line-of-sight between your remote and your camera. We say "shouldn't" because the remote is so powerful than IR light can bounce some objects and sometimes you can even trigger the camera "shooting" from the back of it. Of course this is not ideal.
Also, please remember that direct sunlight reduces range a bit. If you are in a room where someone is operating other types of remote controls, range can be affected too.

     Why is the remote RED?

Well, because we can. And... it makes the cool wordplay of its name work :) [ top ]


     What if my camera doesn't have infrared capability?

Well, you're in luck. byMaC Labs have just came up with a solution for any camera. The solution is Remote ALL. Unlike its redNEX cousin that works remotely with the cameras infrared system, Remote ALL is a mechanical shutter press system. You strap it firmly to your camera, and trigger it with its own remote control. Remote ALL has its own "shutter finger" that you should align with the shutter button (or video button) of your camera, and when you want to trigger it, you just press the button on its remote control, and Remote ALL will press your cameras button for you.
The best part is that you can strap it virtually to ALL cameras, with or without infrared...or even video cameras, cell phones, microwave oven,cofee maker, etc.

     Troubleshoot section

"My remote does not work, what should I do?"
- First of all remove the plastic tab preventing the battery from making contact during shipping.
- Check if your camera is in "REMOTE Cdr." mode.
- Check if you are pointing to the cameras IR sensor, and if there are no obstacles in the way.
- Try a new battery on the remote. If one of the buttons stays pressed while you store your remote on your camera bag, it will keep draining your battery.
- Check to see if there are other IR sources on the area you are using your remote, like other types of IR remotes including TV ones.
- Is your camera ON, and has some battery left?
- Check if your camera has the latest firmware update. If not, upgrade it.
- Smile when you take a picture. The remote will work much better when you are happy :)
