Sony RMT-P1BT Wireless Bluetooth Remote Commander

The Sony Wireless Remote Commander (model RMT-P1BT) with Bluetooth wireless technology provides a reliable, responsive solution for imaging enthusiasts that want to precisely control their camera during landscape shooting, architectural photography, astrophotography, still motion photography, group portraits and more.

The RMT-P1BT Wireless Remote Commander operates via Bluetooth connectivity, eliminating the need for wires, cables or receivers to connect the remote directly to the camera. The remote features an extremely fast response, within approximately 0.05 seconds release time-lag, that ensures the shutter can be released with precise accuracy. There is also an LED light that indicates operating status to camera by flashing or lighting continuously. Additionally, the remote is designed to resist dust and moisture plus hot and cold temperatures, offering reliable operation in a wide variety of environments and weather conditions.

To maximize control over camera functionality, the RMT-P1BT wireless remote commander features focus buttons for manual control over subtle focus changes, a remote C1 custom button that can be adjusted based on users' preferences. It also includes Start/Stop movie recording and control over power-zoom or digital-zoom functionality, making it the ideal accessory for remote movie shooting. For photographers that prefer to shoot on ‘Bulb’ exposure mode, the remote commander can be set to open and close the shutter with respective clicks of the main button, eliminating the need to press and hold the button throughout exposure time.

BLUETOOTH Wireless Technology

Bluetooth communication provides reliable remote control even in bright sunlight or when there are obstacles between the commander and the camera. Bidirectional communication allows additional functionality that would not be available with a transmit-only device, such as status indication right on the remote.

Professional Reliability

The RMT-P1BT provides the type of reliable operation that is essential in professional working environments, with solid Bluetooth connectivity and positive, responsive button control. Because communication is wireless rather than optical, full reliability and response are available even in situations where the line of sight is obscured.

Clear Visual Feedback

A high-visibility indicator LED flashes or lights continuously to show shutter, movie recording and AF status. This is an obvious advantage in situations where the operator does not have direct access to the camera being controlled.

Precise Control for Efficient Shooting

Precise button operation with clear tactile feedback combines with a refined ergonomic design to provide sure, responsive control. The commander itself is designed to be easy to hold and operate, contributing to smooth, error-free operation.

Comprehensive Control

Essential camera controls are provided: focus buttons for precise control of even subtle focus changes, a lock switch that prevents accidental operation during transport, movie recording start/stop and power/digital zoom. There are also two custom buttons that mirror the functions of the C1 and AF-ON buttons on the camera body. 

Ideal for Challenging Environments

The RMT-P1BT works with the camera's built-in Bluetooth receiver, so no wired connection or add-on receiver is required. Camera connector covers can remain closed for maximum protection against dust and moisture, adding to high overall system reliability.

Sony RMT-P1BT Wireless Bluetooth Remote Commander SKU: RMT-P1BT

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk junk poorly made broke first time used Poorly made broke first time I used it wish I could get replacement or refund I plan on writing many reviews on this one to protect other people from buying this very bad product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ! Keeps conncetion super stable I using this commander since a year now and I'm using it constantly, as it's my only remote shutter controller. It's great. Very reliable keeps connection for hours and battery life is acceptable too. You can do 12-13k shots on one CR2032 battery. I've read the reviews below saying that it looses connection. Please check your camera settings as all power saving features of the camera should be disabled if you don't want to loose BT connection. I highly recommend this remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 'basic' remote I've used I'm not sure why all the negative comments about this remote. It works well on my a7r issues at all. Easy to connect and easy to use. I've tried a lot of wireless remotes and this is by far the best one I've used for simple functions - if you want more advanced features, there's better ones out there of course but this works great for what it is.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with A9 I bought your most professional camera (before a9II was released) expecting to get all of your top performances and tools. How funny that this remote doesn't work with a9! Your really wasting time and money here!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as expected - when it stays connected. The remote works fine when it can actually stay paired to my a7riii (running the latest firmware release). It loses connection constantly and without any predictable pattern. Sometimes it will reestablish connection if I activate the shutter on camera. Other times I have to power cycle the camera. About 50% of the time it needs to be re-paired via the bluetooth menu on camera. I shoot 2-3 times daily in sessions lasting 1.5-4 hours and it happens on every, single, shoot. If Sony could get the bluetooth thing down it would be a far better product. As it stands currently it's hard to recommend this to professionals.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SONY A9, FOCUS ZOOM OPERATION I can't use this with A9, looking at compatibility guide this remote should with new A9 firmware after v5.01 to be released this summer 2019. From other comments it seems that zoom/focus operation is only supported while shooting JPEG. Any word from SONY mentioning this in manual or notes on use for this remote??
