Sony SLT-A58 Intervelometer / Remote Release SOLUTION

Ohkay, i orderd this camera cause it was a great deal, but i was irate that i could not use my existing intervelometer to shoot timelapses. So, after much worry and a few gray hairs, i have found a solution. A Micro USB to 3.5mm adapter, sold on amazon for around $8. All you need is an intervelometer that uses a 3.5mm plug, such as the Canon t3i uses.

Are you actually using it or have you just ordered it? I would like to know how that is working for you?

Thanks,

I do not think that this will work. Just because the plugs can make to fit it does not mean it will be compatible.

There is already a free Android App in Google Play Store for remote control of A58. Timelaps will be possible soon.

Re: Sony SLT-A58 Intervelometer / Remote Release SOLUTION

there has to be a better option than using a phone.

 

i cannot believe there is no intervolometer available for this(my camera)

time lapses are a major part of what i do and why i bought this camera.

to find out nothing is offered by Sony or a private label really kills me.

There is a new timer remote available from triggertrap which also supports the Multi Terminal of latest Sony cameras:

The mobile app supports many timer/intervalometer functions

It is a very affordable product and can be highly recommended.

 

Kind Regards
