Using remote shooter in video mode
« on: August 15, 2022, 12:27:54 PM »
I want to use remote shooter (wired) in video mode on my Canon 650D. It has only one button with half and full shutter positions. It works fine for photos.

In video mode it works but initiates shooting photos, not starting and stopping video recording.

ML has option to set using half shutter to start and stop video recording. I turned that on and indeed it works... but.

Now I have issue that when i click half shutter to initiate auto focus, recording starts too. I've set option that video recording start only if half shutter is pressed for 1 second or more, but it does not help a lot, as usually I need to keep key pressed more than one seconds to get focus.

The other issue is if I already set focus and want to just start recording it initiates focusing again.

I even tried moving autofocusing to back button instead of shutter button, but it did not help much. Now when i click half shutter it does not focus (as that is on other button now) and triggers video recording, but if I click back button to focus, it also triggers video recording.

I guess this is not issue just with 650D.

How do you handle this? Is there better way to do this?
