Thread: Remote Control and AF?

    Default Remote Control and AF?

    Hello,

    Wondering if Nikon wireless remote controls or remote cords can control AF?

    i.e. half press = AF, full press = take photo?

    Sorry, no idea of remotes at all :P

    Thanks!

    the cheap $16 remote cannot half press at all. BUT, those $100-$200 remote release that is corded can half press.

    basically when u press the button on the remote, the camera will focus and then snap right away.

    Haha I think you can build your own too if you want. Search around for those schematics. I think usually just a stereo plug, a cable and 1 or 2 switches. Or some people build and sell over ebay.
    Equipment: a pair of cranky spectacles with scratched lens :dunno:
