WiFi and remote operation?

Just wondering -- how many of you are operating cameras remotely? I've tried once with the Cam Ranger, and found it a bit buggy...

I'm still keeping an eye on the new Canon XC10, and waiting to see some more tests of the image. I suppose one key thing I'd use it for is the Noa Put groom shot -- shoot in 4K, reframe for tighter, more emotional shot later. But then a practical issue is: if you're using 4K, you really have to hit record as close to ceremony start time as possible. The remote control feature (start recording from a smartphone or tablet) suddenly becomes really handy, to save you frantically running all around the church at the last minute.

Hi Adrian, not sure about your camcorder, but the PXW-X70 can be controlled by smart phone, but 'd be a little worried that the priest would think I was checking my text messages during the ceremony!
For my cameras I just use the remote control. Sometimes i could do with binoculars to check the tally light is on.
