Phot­tix Aion Wire­less Timer Con­trol £70, $85

NPhoto - - Test Team -

More so­phis­ti­cated than the Hama and Phot­tix Plato re­motes, this fea­tures a wealth of ad­di­tional, pro­gram­mable shoot­ing modes. Th­ese in­clude an ad­justable timer de­lay, pro­gram­mable time-lapse shoot­ing, timed Bulb ex­po­sures and even auto-brack­et­ing for long-ex­po­sure shots. As with the Häh­nel re­mote that’s also on test, ad­vanced set­tings ben­e­fit from an il­lu­mi­nated LCD dis­play, although the Phot­tix puts it to bet­ter use with a slightly more in­tu­itive con­trol sys­tem.

Like the Plato, the Nikon edi­tion of the Aion is sup­plied with three ca­bles, and the trans­mit­ter unit can plug di­rectly into the cam­era for cable-con­nected shoot­ing. The max­i­mum range is ad­ver­tised as a less gen­er­ous 60 me­tres but, in our tests, the Aion had more suc­cess fir­ing through ob­sta­cles.

A wealth of shoot­ing modes and good range make this our pick
