Start/Stop video recording on a Canon 70D? And does anyone know of one that will if this doesnt? I would prefer not to use the Canon DSLR phone app to do this

Canon also prefers that you do not use the remote app with the 70D in video mode. WiFi on cam is disabled when you flip the switch to video! I believe the item you posted a link to will work but it has to be pointed at the front of camera so the IR receiver can see it.

I've owned one and used it on my T3i and it does not work on video. And if the 70D (which I also have) have the same configuration and start/stop internals as the T3i, which most likely will, the remote shutter will only work on the photo function and Shane is correct you need to have line-of-sight to fire off the shutter. It is better to use the app for remote shutter. So don't waste your $$.

Yes, that remote will start/stop video on your 70D. All Canon DSLR's with video use the same IR remote function to start/stop video. The Drive mode must be set to self-timer(10sec or 2sec), and then must press the "2S" button on the IR remote. The "S" button will only take a still or take a still during video. Genuine Canon RC-5's (and clones) will only have the 2 second delay button, while all the others have both the S and 2S buttons. (the RC-6 only has one button but there is a switch on the back for S or S2)

simply use an IR Extender and place it wherever you need it and point the remote at it or just tape it to the IR extender sender unit.
