Hehe... that happens <g>. One thing I wanted to note is that
I'm unsure of the maximum cable length before the signal will
detoriate too much. But that is something that should be easily
testable. Please let us know what your findings are!

I also just thought if you want to leave your Canon remote
alone there is another way to go: the universal remote. Learn
it the controls of the Canon remote and then strip the universal
remote down (if they didn't poor glue inside it...) and you can
add the extension buttons and label them yourselves. Saves
the warranty (on the Canon remote ofcourse, not the other

Hi Kris,

Check my post of "Want to Rig up your Infrared Remote ???" in the Remote Lens Controler Section for the units I made up long before 03. Has Pics, and can send more if anyone interested. I've got all 4 of my Sony Cams set up this way and use the IR units all the time, even in tandum with a Sony wired remote control handle removed from a Sony TriPod.
