1.0 out of 5 stars The seller is mis-selling don't waste your time
The SLT-A58 does not support the use of a wireless remote control so not sure why the seller sells it a comparable ??? . Unfortunately I only found this out after receiving the cheap and nasty remote. Another selling wasting our time and money , be aware it costs more to ship back than you paid, so you end up just throwing it.

I bought this for my Sony Alpha 330 DSLR. It is amazing value for money and works very well with the camera. It arrived promptly, well packaged.

I brought a different remote before that said it would work with the @3xx but wouldnt work with my @330 DOH!!!!! No such problems with this one! great price and works first time! Only one gripe, you have to be to the right side of the camera if you have a big lens on, but thats down to the nature of Infra Red not the quality of the product

The product originally sold here, with buttons for a set of popular cameras, didn't work with my Alpha 230 - the IR output was there, but the camera wasn't recognising it. I asked for it to be replaced by the Sony Alpha-specific item here, and it worked perfectly.

OK, it won't do the slideshow control nonsense that the thirty-odd quid Sony unit does, but who cares?

Bargain.

I was a bit dubious about this before I got it, the Sony part is very expensive compared to this one, I set the camera to "Remote commander" and it worked great, I am really pleased with it, the furthest I have been from the camera is about 3 meters and it worked perfectly.

Arrived next day.. worked first time and even had the battery fitted...HELLO..! its only [...]..Superb.! Perfect for my needs as I use a tripod and have big hands that knock things over so really needed a remote. It just shows that it is worthwhile shopping around and not just buying all the brand stuff (sony). As other people have said at only [...] its worth trying out..

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, funtional, vfm, 20 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wireless IR Infrared Remote Control for Sony Alpha A230,A290,A330,A380,A390,A450,A550,A580,A700,A850,A900,A33,A55,A57,A65,A77,A99,NEX-5 NEX-5n,NEX-6,NEX-7,Milnolta DSLR as IRMT-DSLR1 (Accessory)
Works well straight from the box with my Sony Alpha 230. Remote must be in the line of sight of the camera sensor, so you can't use it from behind the camera (although maybe if you had a reflective surface strategically positoned you could). It works up to about 70 degrees from the sensor though. Also, in addition to almost instant (0.5 second delay) firing, a great feature is that the remote has a 2 second button, so that camera fires 2 seconds after pressing. For the price (£8 incl p&p from this seller) I would recommend, esp as the Sony version is a uch larger and more complex and functionally redundant item (it has buttons for remote slideshows for example). This one is a Chinese import and compatible, and is smll enough to carry around in my camera bag. Cheap, chearful but functional and value for money in my oninion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works with my Nex 5, 10 July 2010
This review is from: Wireless IR Infrared Remote Control for Sony Alpha A230,A290,A330,A380,A390,A450,A550,A580,A700,A850,A900,A33,A55,A57,A65,A77,A99,NEX-5 NEX-5n,NEX-6,NEX-7,Milnolta DSLR as IRMT-DSLR1 (Accessory)
Having just purchased a Nex 5 I wondered if this would work for my new camera as it isn't in the listed models.

Jolly pleased to report that it does the job. You do have to be fairly near (<3m) the camera, but in most instances this isn't a problem for me. I'm not sure if that is the remote or the Nex, as I haven't compared it to the Sony one. It is an utter bargain compared to what Sony are charging for their one, so I'm a happy bunny.

Note if you have an Nex 3 that this won't work - as the Nex 3 doesn't have remote capability (Sony kept this very quiet, but it's true.)
