Re: Wifi back pack and remote ??

Just tried "remoteGO" on my Android - works like a charm.
You can find it in the Playstore.

That's not supposed to be the case, Dean. You are supposed to be able to remotely control up to 50 GoPro cameras from a single remote. They were demonstrating this set up in the booth at NAB.

I don't know if that's true for the IOS app, but the key fob style remote should work on multiple cams. Of course you have to have a separate wifi bacpac for each camera, which is why they sell the bacpac as a separate unit.

The GoPro remote can trigger a lot of cameras simultaneously, but if you want to trigger a specific camera you will need a separate remote for each one.

Ok Dean, that clears it up for me. I can see how that would become a mess.

I put two on a wristband. The number of remotes you can operate at once depends on how long your arm is. :-)
