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 the official remote, from what I have read online it is best to pay the extra for this rather than a cheap alternative. The remote works well for my Nikon D3400, there is a setting on the camera which sets this as the shutter release option.
The remote will only work if it is pointing directly at the lens, hence the 4 stars. But I guess that's how this remote functions and as long as you are aware of this then that's fine.
I use this for taking self takes whilst fishing and it is easy enough to hold in one hand whilst holding a fish. I also have got this wet and it still works.
The one I received to go with the compatible Nikon Camera... When the camera was in manual mode, so I could keep the shutter open for Night Sky Pictures through telescope. The Remote opened and closed the shutter on first press, instead of keeping the shutter open on one click and closing the shutter on the second click.
Which sort of defeats the whole point really unless you had the Camera on Automatic... Other subsequent different IFR Remotes opened the shutter on first press and closed shutter at any point after, on second press..
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.
