Nikon ML-L3 £17, $20

This re­mote is as ba­sic as they come, but it is de­light­fully small, slim and light­weight, at 60x28x7mm and 10g. It’s an in­frared de­vice, which means there’s no need to at­tach a re­ceiver to the cam­era, although that does also mean that it’s in­com­pat­i­ble with high-end SLRs like the D800, and pro bod­ies that lack a built-in in­frared mod­ule.

The ML-L3 works well up to a range of five me­tres, but lacks a two-stage op­er­at­ing but­ton, so you can’t ap­ply a light press for aut­o­fo­cus and me­ter­ing be­fore press­ing the but­ton fully to shoot.

The ML-L3 is a good (and very af­ford­able) op­tion for early Nikon dig­i­tal SLRs like the D40, D50, D60 and D70, which all lacked an ac­ces­sory ter­mi­nal and there­fore can’t be used with any of the other re­motes in this test.

It’s in­cred­i­bly sim­ple, and per­fect for use with older Nikon cam­eras
