    Question Sony F717 Remote control

    Did anyone bought it ? Useful ? I assumed that can use it to control the camera to zoom in/out, power up/off and take photo ?

    I bought one a few weeks ago at $78 (include GST). You are right, CP said no stock, AP said don't carry. I bought it from Song Brothers (not my favourite shop, but I had no choice under this situation). The release works fine, zoom, half-press to focus, on/off, no battery need, come with a small cool bag.

    Yeah what i mean is that you can buy the remote control separately, no need to purchase the sony tripod
    Its good for use on the tripod.
    Why didn't you take her photo ?

    Asked CP and a couple of other shops at funan but no shops seem to be selling the remote control. Perhaps will make a trip to Sim Lim this weekend and check out.
