Remote Float

Not only does it keep it from sinking but it makes it wicked easy to find! Bought a sunglasses float and pulled off the "buoys", used a small loan yard and a zip tie. It works and was fun to make.

I've had 2 of the ORc1 remotes and they both had such short battery life they stopped working almost right away. I think I must have gotten old stock from somewhere with dieing batteries. Not good when you are all set up on location and your remote won't work! Now I stick to my $5 cable remote.

Sometimes you need a wireless remote- for either the camera, studio flash or both. You can go the Pocket Wizard route and have that over sized/overpriced post modern walkie-talkie sitting on your rig - Please!

I bought a Vello Freewave remote for my set up and it's great - for the price.

Mine arrived yesterday. absolutely no go. Read and re-read the manual for the K-30 camera and the remote, finally got onto live chat with my dealer They pointed me to this thread.
html sure enough when I pointed it at my mobile phones camera and pressed the button no light. I proved the concept with a RC of out TV that I knew worked and got to see the blue light. Long story short, it's on it's way back to be replaced under warranty.

JJC remote works well and is very cheap. Easy to replace slide out battery compartment too.
I have the JJC RM-E7 Remote as well and it works with both the Q and Q7.
W/T operates the Focus and S the shutter.Slideout batt.tray is great.
