Remote (infrared)Trigger for the 1DX
« on: September 10, 2012, 10:09:02 AM »
Last weekend I tried to make some nightshoots with my 1DX and tripod and I found out that my Canon RC-1 is not working with the 1DX. I read somewhere that all 1-Series have no built-in infrared controller!

How do I shoot group fotos with myself on it? 10sec timer. ok. but only ONE picture will be shoot then. with my old 5D2 I took my RC-1 and I did 10-20 pictures. Always at least one was good of them.
How do you solve that?

Annoying, isn't it...  :o

You can set 1/3-stop brackets, and if you use 10 s timer from LiveView, you can get several frames taken from the one shutter press (may want to set 2 fps).

I plan to pick up a hähnel RF trigger, or a PocketWizard pre-trigger cable and use a MiniTT1 as a remote (most likely the hähnel as it offers extra functionality).
