I really wasn't thinking about it until I ready about Pixel Shift today...mind blown.

Exactly, although I see limited use for it unless you are ready to do a lot of re-touching, or... the wind is very calm. Under those conditions the results are pretty exciting. Frankly the pixel shift isn't my biggest motivator. I'm more interested in the DR, the resolution, and the fact that it weighs a bit less and is smaller than what I'm using. The FPS is pretty nice when you need it too although I rarely do. I do wish they had a built in GPS, I have found that very useful, shortens my work flow a good bit. I'm going to keep thinking about it, I can't really complain about what I'm using but if I move I want to be able to use the lenses I already own I have no interest in selling off and buying glass again.

One thing I am planning on doing for sure is selling off the lenses I don't use (24L, 50/1.4, 85, 24-105) as well as the 5D and 5d2 body along with a lot of accessories, including a few camera bags and picking up a Fuji Xt2. I like what I see with them, and I want something I can keep handy all the time without taking up too much space that gets me good image quality too.

Thanks John...you can imagine my frustration when I started setting up when I realized my remote was not with me...n00b mistake for sure!

Hi Travis....I don't know about your camera, but on the Nikon D750 it has a "time mode" where you press the shutter release to begin the exposure and press it again when you want the exposure to end (no need to hold the button down for the duration of the exposure). Its not like the "bulb mode" where you have to hold the shutter button down the whole length of the exposure. I use a stop watch app on my cell phone to time the exposure. For me this is way faster than dialing in a time in my intervalometer. The time mode also work with my wired remote.

second person to mention that today...both Nikon shooters...I don't think the Sony has that...but I would not want to use that, for fear of introduction any vibration. the SR app does a great job...with the side bonus of crazy clean images.

Actually the way I use it is once I got the the exposure time figured out, I go ahead and press the button on my wired remote then I dial in the time on my stop watch app on my cell. Press the button again at the end of the exposure. A 5 or 10 seconds difference due to bringing up the app on my cell will not make a big difference when my exposure is 3 minutes plus.

you can use touchless remote app, assuming you have it installed. Great concept, too bad not baked in.

put your hand close to the EVF, first shutter, hand close to EVF end shutter...... brilliant, but the app is slow as SR.... and in that case, I take smooth reflections for the cleanliness.

if you're not timing shots (waves, lightning), you dont need a remote around.

When you have a remote handy, its easy, and yes 5 seconds variation doesnt matter over a 3 minute exposure. Now factor in ADD, I forget to stop an exposure if I am relying on me to remember , I tend to get immersed in either the scene or the people I am with...and have ruined many an exposure that way, So I like programmable remotes!

True....but if I set the stop watch app so it counts down to zero and when it gets to zero it rings like an alarm clock (and will continue to ring until I acknowledge it), no way I'm gonna miss that. To each his own I guess, do whatever work best for you.

after close to 10 years shooting LE...the remote works best for me...I have tried so many workflows and that is the one that works for me...we all have our own way.

I'm with you here, I've tried the apps, as well as the built-in functions. I did enjoy the built in when I had two systems shooting during the eclipse, but other than that I much prefer to have a remote in my hands.

with a really good proximity sensor implementation, I can see that replacing a remote for landscape shots where I'm behind the camera. I dont hate using a remote, I hate misplacing it :-P

the remotes I really love are the yongnuo triggers as remotes, but setup is a hassle, and you can forget about portrait orientation shots. Sony has a remote "app", works poorly, but the potential is huge. Simply put your had up to the proximity sensor for a shutter actuation. Very cool, no need for extra tools, fire on command. Would be cool if you can fire based on voice command, but dont think any system has this feature. I'm all for less gadgets in the field.

Surprised I got a decent shot as hard as the wind was blowing.
