    Remote Control Mode (ML-L3) Turns Off

    The setting for the Remote Control Mode (ML-L3) resets to off every time I turn the camera off.


    Is there any way to get it to stay on the setting selected?


    Many thanks!

    Don't turn off your camera. Seriously, it's the only way.

    Try the i button for quicker access to turn it back on. It is a battery suck and will run your battery down quickly if left on. If I pour a cup of coffee and set up on the bird feeder for some lazy morning pictures, I will just snap a picture every 10 minutes or so to keep the function alive for another 15 minutes.

    This^^

    A better solution, IMO, is a cheap RF remote, particularly since you no longer have the limited line of sight thing for the IR. I have a couple Vello Freewave Plus remote triggers that I can set so they either act in concert with each other (fire multiple cameras simultaneously) or independently. A little more money but a lot more flexible - and zero battery suck. I've never used the regular Vello Freewave, but if you have no need to do more than trigger the camera as is it's $39.95 on Amazon.
