IR Listening
« on: May 09, 2013, 12:58:52 PM »
Welcome ,
i have RC-6 remote that i use on my 600D/T3i camera
i can take pictures with the remote only when i put (Self-timer:10sec/Remote control) option
the thing that i want is making the remote works in the (Self-timer:Continues) shooting mode
so is it possible to add option to make the IR-Receiver "On" all the time ?
which can be used in all modes and like when pressing the shutter button in the camera ?
Sorry for my little speak but hope u can understand me .

Probably possible.

I've researched the IR interface a while ago here: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/ml-devel/bsZyPX2kEZ4/mtmlUL-WGcoJ

and had some success in detecting the IR pulses from a regular TV remote. Feel free to continue the investigation.

Oh , Nice !
hope someone can add the option to ML
to make the IR-Receiver "ON" when choosing other modes than the  (Self-timer:10sec/Remote control) mode
because the camera turns the IR-Receiver to "OFF" when u choose any other mode | maybe for power saving ?
i really want the feature and exactly in the (Self-timer:Continues) mode..

could the IR remote trigger movie recording? I understand that there's a 2-second delay and instant-shutter switch on the remote, can we make it so that one switch trigger photo shutter, and the other to trigger movie recording?

Will be awesome to have an option to remap two standard Canon IR signals (S and 2S) to custom functions, like magic zoom, start/stop video and focus (I known about standard functionality, but without photo capture before start recording it will be better)
