First post - I've just ordered an NEX 5 last night so no doubt the first of many posts! Really looking forward to receiving it later this week.
Quick question - is the remote control RMT-DSLR1 compatible with the NEX 5? The Sony website doesn't list the NEX 5 as a compatible product, but I have seen a retailer advertising it as compatible (the same retailer also claims that it'll work with an NEX 3 so I'm taking it with a pinch of salt!).
If so, does its usefulness extend beyond just remote shutter release?
Does anybody know of a remote control for the NEX-5 that allows you to start video shooting ?
Both of the remotes listed above seem to be limited to the stills shutter release only.
Ideally, I would love to be able to get a remote which allows remote stop start of video and can also allow you to set various timer delays, along with the ability to take shots over a set interval of time (i.e. a single shot every second, or minute, or hour, etc.)
The Canon's have this functionality and if Sony play their cards right they could have a Canon and Nikon beater on their hands before the other DSLRs have been able to establish a strong foothold.
Come on Sony, give the consumers what they want and they'll buy your products - simples !
