    I have a 7000SI that I want to hook to a spotting scope. I have what
    appears to be an IR remote that the battery could be dead, but anyway
    I wanted to know how to make it work. This is the remote that came
    with the camera years ago and I've never, until now had a reason to
    use it. Does it have to be directly in from of the camera? I would
    like to trigger the camera when I am using the view finder to focus
    etc.

    I don't know if it is a 700si or a 7000 that you have, but neither came
    with a remote control. It can be controlled with the optional IR-1N set
    however, but that needs a huge control receiver mounted in the flash shoe.
    Tell us what the controller reads.

    If you mean IR-1N, you need a 9V Batterie for the ir-sender and AA
    Batteries for the receiver.
    As it is IR, you have to point the sender more or less to the receiver.
    Mounting on the flashshoe is optional. It has only to be hooked up to the
    remotecontrolplug.
