Anyone Get Theirs To Work For Shutter Release?
Is There An On Button On The Camera To Turn It On??
Remote Commander (RC) Drive Mode
You have to place the camera in "Remote Commander" (RC) Mode (I know, I know ... I don't fully understand who comes up with these function names, either ... ). To do this:

The α700 now is ready to respond to the RC.
You will have to press the "DRIVE" button again to set the function back to "single-shot" or whatever drive mode you want, after you are done with the RC. It will not default change with just shutting off the α700.
Also, the remote commander will NOT work from behind the camera. It is optical and you must point it at the receiver built into the FRONT of the α700's grip. Also, the RC will not autofocus the camera before shutter release. It simply FIRES! Instantly or with the 2 second delay.

Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
