If you don't plan on using it from great distances you may have luck with putting a strip or two of 'invisible' tape over the remote. It can reduce the distance a fair amount but it helps to diffuse the beam a little bit. If you have a Roscolux filter sample book you may wish to try a #114 or #115, it works well with an old IR transmitter I have. I've used ...


The sensor for the IR shutter signal on the 70D is that dot on the front of the grip, below the shutter button (see page 20 of the user manual). You must point the remote at that dot, so these types of IR remotes rarely work well from behind the camera, but work much better from in front of the camera. In addition, it's much like a television remote, ...

The cheap compatible receiver for the YN-622N-TX is the YN-622N. You can buy a single YN-622N transceiver if you want. And there may come a time when you actually want to have two lights off camera. In addition to this, if you have two YN-622N transceivers, you don't actually need a YN-622N-TX transmitter, since a YN-622N can be used in either transmit or ...
