To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Doesn't come with instructions, but you still need to select the correct shutter release option on your camera. Refer to your camera manual if you're not clear! It isn't totally obvious that the battery is insulated at first glance (no plastic tab showing) take the battery out completely and remove the plastic strip inside, the battery isn't flat! This can be used from behind the camera, you just need to angle it to the side. Range is excellent. Smaller than you'd expect and could be easily lost, nevertheless this remote is everything you need it to be. Works perfectly...buy it! (Camera type - D3400)
This is a must for anyone who is looking to do some professional remote shutter action shots.
I have had this item for over 2 years now, and it is still as reliable as ever. It is used almost daily during my work as a professional photographer. I am aware there is newer adaptions that you can use with your smartphone etc. however I have found them to be unreliable in a professional shooting environment (and slightly unprofessional if you start going on our phone during a shoot).
I rely on this item heavily and it has never let me down in its 2 year service. If you are looking for a high quality shutter remote then look no further than this product.
Tiny remote control for my Nikon D5500 works perfectly and easy to hide out of shot when doing portraits and photography where you do not want vibration. Easy to use and a nice case that will attach to the strap of your camera if you wanted.
We went on holiday to try and see the Northern Lights and I'd read that a remote control is useful when taking photos with a long exposure as you remove the vibrations added by pressing the button on the camera. It literally took a matter of seconds to set this up - all I had to do was remove the plastic strip covering the battery on the remote and change my camera setting to use the remote control. Then you get the camera into the right position, point the remote at the infrared sensor & press the button... in the words of the meerkats - simples! This made such a difference; there was no shake associated with me touching the camera and I could easily take photos of myself & my partner without relying on a timer or the kindness of strangers. Along with a tripod it even allowed me to get a few night-time shots, including the northern lights, from a moving boat. Everyone who owns an SLR should have one of these. One slight gripe I had with my camera was that the infrared sensor is on the front so in order to take a picture from the back, you have to put your arm around the front/side for the sensor to pick up the remote's signal when the button is pressed. A minor setback that caught me out a couple of times but was easily correctable by simply moving my arm.
I bought it to work with my Nikon D3200 it has a front and back infrared sensor not specified but gave it a bash anyway. The last almost DSLR I had was a Minolta DImage 5 and a remote cable was perfect to stop blurring when at high zoom levels ok, ok so we are talking years ago now well I still used it up till recently when it finally gave in water damage. So took the step up and got the Nikon D3200. Just took me a while to figure out where to set the camera up to use it not many people writing detailed reports on how to set it up on the NikonD3200. Just got my Nikon D3200 2 days after this little device, found the setting in the shutter release options once enabled it works. Just the Nikon D3200 Nanny state driving me crazy but slowly setting it up and so far it has worked without failure, what makes it better than a cabled version of remote control is that there are no potential for accidentally snagging the cable and destroying the shot. I have managed to trigger it from 10 meters so I am very pleased with it so far. Probably wont be ideal for those who want to do light painting as the trigger distance is a limiting factor. If you are into light painting then best get a radio transmitter trigger. But for the rest of us this is a perfect gadget to get shake free trigger for that long zoom shots.
