Can anyone recommend a good wireless remote with an intervelometer and a shutter lock (like if I have the camera at 30" shutter and continuous shooting, it'll lock the shutter and shoot 30" exposures until I release it.. Think star trails).

I've got a cheapy from Amazon but it's only a trigger. And only semi reliable at best.

Camera is an A7r.. Thanks.

I thought there was an intervalamoter app you could download into the camera?

Sorry mate I forgot to click follow so hadn't realised you had replied. I done a bit of digging and as far as I can see there isn't an app that would do intervlamoter. There are some wired remotes that do it but haven't found a wireless option yet

The only one I have seen is by http://shop.triggertra​p.com (external link) , had one for my 6D and it did what I wanted to do.

It's not wireless though.

you need to sign up for a sony digital account (think playstation online gaming). Then you connect your camera to a wifi nearby and login. it's pretty simple, and the remote actually saved my butt on vacation. The IR remote is limited to only a few feet, however I had to stand really far away to create a shot like this:

the remote trigger app kinda sucks since you cant bracket, but super handy in a pinch. If you have NFC on your phone, put the phone up to the camera, and presto, app activated on camera and phone, ready to shoot remotely. Much more range than the IR remote.

there is a timelapse app and even a startrails app. I've considered the timelapse, but dont do it much, so will reconsider later. Nice to have these features in camera, one less gadget to carry around.

Hi , not sure if you are aware of Hahnel... based in Ireland

I used to use their Giga T Pro on my 5Ds which they have now made compatible with the Sony A7 range... Its not cheap but its the best Remote Ive used - I even dropped the transmitter in the sea last week and it carried on working..:-D - 100 Meter Wireless range Etc

http://www.amazon.com …ords=hahnel+gig​a+t+pro+ii (external link)

Be careful of old stock being sold as its only been a matter of weeks since the new and A7 compatible stock came out... Saying that , Hahnel told me all is needed in that case is the S2 cable, I bought a spare from HK Sellers on Ebay and they work great.

Does everything you ask , one thing I will say it now comes with a weird connector so you will need that Sony Multi interface adapter to be able to sit the receiver in the hot-shoe.

I have the wireless intervalometer from Vello i bought from B&H, then someone pointed me to get "S2" cable and i did from eBay and Viola, working like a charm!

I am thinking to buy one more S2 cable just as a backup and also to buy another intervalometer, i will keep one for Canon and the other for Sony as i hate to swap between them in my small bags for each when i go outdoor, i don't carry big bags, and also to make one as a backup, who knows when i may damage/lose the current one then i can't wait to get another for something i can't miss to shoot urgent.
