Switronix IR Remote for Canon 7d/5d Mark II

Switronix has just released their Flex DSLR remote. It is a IR remote with a flexible arm for starting and stopping the 7D & 5D Mark II in movie mode. Check out my quick video review here -

This looks rather simple and effective but is the only infrared sensor on the 7d on the front? It looks like the device has a tripod clamp that you could mount to the arm of a video head, but will it work from behind? Keep in mind....just got my camera....don't know everything about it yet. Sorry if it is a stupid question.

That's not a stupid questions at all, if it only works from the front, as it appears, then this has limited applicability. Still cool but...

The price would be good to know.

MSRP is $155. So look for the sale price to be a little less.

I don't under stand this bulky thing at all. Canon has two remotes that will start camera rolling, in the RC-1 and the RC-5. I think they both go for under $30.00.

The idea is to give shooters that use hand held rigs a quick way to start and stop the camera. So if you have hand grips you can start the camera without having to fumble around. Simple as that.

I agree that a "trigger handle" would be great. I suppose that clamp on unit can make that happen. Just wasn't sure how that gets incorporated in this set up.

So theoretically, on a hand held rig, the little bendy wand IR mechanism could aim at the front of the camera? right? That would mak sense but might not be ideal for tripod mount behind camera.
