Re: Remote controle choice?

HI, Yes sure the smart remote is working otherwise.

I was just expecting that at least the vent-hole in the canopy should be enough to keep connected to the camera when people say the smart remote has far better range than the Ipad app (especially as it is only 5ft away)
