To en­able com­pat­i­bil­ity with all Nikon cam­eras that fea­ture a re­mote con­troller con­nec­tor, this ‘uni­ver­sal’ model (code 00005201) ships as a stand­alone unit, and you have to buy the ca­bles to go be­tween the re­mote’s lead and your cam­era sep­a­rately. The ad­di­tional cost is about £10 per 80cm ca­ble. The over­all out­lay is there­fore more expensive than for the com­pet­ing Phot­tix TR-90 re­mote, but at least it keeps your con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions open if you own several cam­eras.

As well as the usual two-stage re­mote shut­ter but­ton, ad­vanced timer op­tions en­able pro­gram­mable de­layed and timed bulb shoot­ing, plus time-lapse op­tions in which you can set the in­ter­val and to­tal num­ber of shots in a se­quence. Ad­just­ments are in­tu­itive, based on a four-way pad and LCD dis­play.
