    Hi, Ive just registered here and this is my first post.
    Three weeks ago I bought a RX100 2 and finding it a really great little camera, however when trying to take time lapse shots using continous shot I find the playmemories app cant manage it and so I was looking at buying a wired remote.
    The only remote that I can find that will work is the offical sony one at nearly £100, when you consider you can buy cheap generic ones at £10 this seems like another sony rip off job. If anyone can recommend a cheap alternative or a workaround for a cheaper one to work on this camera I would be very grateful.
    Thank you very much

    Welcome to serious compacts John. I moved your query to the proper forum and targeted your title to get RX1 users' direct attention as well. That's a great camera you have, but unfortunately I don't have the answer you seek.

    I bought a cheap wireless remote for nex camera from ebay but I put it somewhere before I use it:) From what I read cheap ones are good also but I don't know how they work with camera applications. Both RX1 and RX100 don't have the app options so your answers might be more from nex or RX100 II users...
