+1 Here. I wish I could say I'm having great luck, but I'm not. Plus the problem is intermittent which makes it more frustrating.
It has been discussed here:
to a lesser extent. But the problem has been around for many since DAY ONE.
Red Team, PLEASE offer a wired solution. Dock adapter for each end (body and back of RedMote) with a Lemo-connected cable in between. Offer a 3', 6', 25' and 50' cable. This would be useful on a daily basis as the AC could choose to Velcro or use the VF stealth mount to put the Redmote in a convenient spot (news flash: rear of the camera is MOST inconvenient 90% of the time)
Those of you who say a wired solution is useless because of the configuration of your other camera components, I get it. But at least we'd have a choice, and a solution "in a pinch". Right now there is NO solution if the wireless fails, except to mount it on the back,
How can you mount it on the back of the camera if you're powering the camera with the Red BackPack QuickPlate V Lock batteries or the x Quick Back?
How about having a link to the side handle ports, heck even have an antenna attachment or new RedLink to make the Remote work in wireless mode.
Sure, Rory, I'd be up for any solution that offers a wired connection. Hope Red is working on something there...
So, is the statement "performance varies" all we're getting from Red? I was hoping they had advanced from having the stigma of being unreliable especially since I invested in their system. If their barometer for customer satisfaction is based off of what is posted on reduser, they are not getting an accurate representation.
I was told that 3rd party top plates can effect the connectivity range for the REDmote, so that must mean that RED top plates will allow you greater range with the REDmote?
I say let one of us Objective C guys write an iPhone app!
