hi guys im looking for advice 

I have recently just finished my sky hero build and now have begun mounting my gimbal and camera equipment i have an idea that i need help with i want to be able to control my Sony A5000 camera from the ground ,after a look around the web i found the RM-VPR1 , which is a cheep wired remote that works with almost every sony camera , what i need help with is taking this remote and modding it to work with my ezuhf rc control system , i have heaps of channels free ultimately i want to  have full control from the ground of zoom , shutter, video start and stop , how hard would this be to do? rc switches soldiered to the pads in the remote? or will it be a bit more complex than that? 

i dont mind buying this remote and tearing it apart but it would be good to get some advice from you guys RE if its possible , it would be a very handy device if someone could build one of these from scratch , or if someone already has i would love a link , thanks again

  • I couldn't afford the a5000 and made a big mistake and got one of the only cameras Sony makes that doesn't support wired remotes so I'm stuck with a nex-5 , going to use ir trigger
  • Hi robincfey,

    I have had good success with this remote shutter: http://vp-systems.eu/camremote.html

    I think it does most of what you need. They just added support for the A5000 with this cable: Multiterminal cable

    I am curious to hear any experiences with your A5000 as I am considering buying that camera as well:). How does it cope with vibrations and what lenses are you using?

    Have a great day:)!

  • You should use Stratosnappper 2 :)

    • yea ive seen that one but it only gives me shutter control no zoom or video on/off 

      • It has Video on/off, i use this myself.

        For Zoom i use this: http://ecilop.com/shop/nex-zoom.phtml

        • Looks nice and cheap for lenses without power zoom. Thanks for the link:)! What are your experiences with the OSS SteadyShot feature. Do you always disable it? Is it enough to disable it, or do you look for lenses without SteadyShot?
