I have a IR wireless shutter and a Canon 70D.
I set the correct Drive Mode in the camera and the remote works, but only sometimes. If I am very far away (20 feet/6 meters from the camera) it works most of the times but if I'm only a few feet or a few inches from it pointing directly to the camera's sensor I have to press it like 20 times for it to take the picture.
I have just replaced the battery and I see the IR working every time if I use the camera sensor to view it. Can it be that the remote is that bad? It's not a Canon remote, but since it's a very simple technology I doubt that would make any difference (anyway, it works from far!).
Any ideas? Thanks.
