Does anyone know if the remote (wireless controller) can be used in movie mode to start/stop recording and zoom in/out? Also I noticed there's a sensor in front, does the remote work when standing behind the camera?

Hi and welcome to Steve's.

Yes it can be used to start, stop and zoom during recording. It is only usable from the front of the camera which is something that annoys me as there are times when being able to have remote features from the rear would be good.

Hope that helps,

ok I have used my remote too now, and have found that it does indeed work from behind the camera, but pointing downwards toward it, maybe its because the batteries are new??
Try it from behind and see if yours work too
