It can be frus­trat­ing if you have mul­ti­ple cam­eras with dif­fer­ent re­mote con­troller sock­ets – and if you’ve been keen on pho­tog­ra­phy for any length of time, that’s quite likely. De­spite its in­ex­pen­sive ask­ing price, the HRN 280 solves the prob­lem by com­ing com­plete with three sep­a­rate ca­bles to suit all MC-DC1, MC-DC2 and 10-pin con­nec­tors. Each plugs se­curely into the main con­troller unit, with a twist-lock ac­tion. An ad­di­tional two-me­tre ex­ten­sion ca­ble is supplied in case the stan­dard 80cm cam­era ca­bles come up short. All four ca­bles are a lit­tle thicker and feel bet­ter qual­ity than the Phot­tix XS ca­ble.

Op­er­a­tion is ba­sic, iden­ti­cal to that of the Phot­tix XS con­troller. The dual-ac­tion but­ton has a sim­i­larly pleas­ant feel and has a slid­ing lock for bulb ex­po­sures. The HRN 280 is com­pat­i­ble with all Nikon cam­eras that have a re­mote con­troller socket
