Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3
Rated 1 out of 5 by BrianKC Overpriced and full of worthless features
"Fire the shutter, record video, control zoom and more using this wired remote commander and your Alpha DSLR camera." is what Sony's description of the item is. FIrst off Sony, alpha DSLRs do not have power zoom lenses. Secondly, this claim of "and more" is garbage. This remote doesn't even do what you claim, let alone "more". Sony needlessly changed the hotshoe and remote interface to more proprietary ones simply to force us to purchase (or re-purchase for us previous alpha owners) accesories only from them. Too bad there isn't another option, at least not yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Channel70Productions Works OK, but........
The rocker switch has a 'course' rather than 'fine' feel to it. Difficult to be precise for our shooters and perhaps other camera operators will have a more deft sense of touch. A big negative is this remote mounts on the pan bar at a 90 degree angle rather than inline as most remotes and LANC controllers do.
Since this device has no competition, users (of PJ540's anyway) are sort of stuck with it. But, since it is the only game in town, it's better than not having a remote.

Rated 3 out of 5 by thavpro can not take picture with HX300
all functions work with HX300 , zoom, focus, video record, power on -off,except for the 2nd push to actually take a photo. that's a big problem since I got it eliminate hand shake when shooting stills with extreme zoom.
