Sony a5000 IR control

Dear everyone,


I've recently purchased a5000.

Is it possible to use infrared (IR) remote control with Sony a5000 (ILCE5000L/S)? What remote control units are compatible with this camera?

Also, the "remote control" item is missing from the menu or I am unable to locate it in the Setup section.

If yes, where do turn the remote control on?
