NPhoto - - Test Team -

Sidestep­ping com­pat­i­bil­ity is­sues, this RF re­mote is sup­plied with­out any cam­era con­nec­tion ca­bles for its re­ceiver mod­ule, the idea be­ing that you buy the one you need sep­a­rately at an ad­di­tional cost of about £10/$16. All three Nikon types are avail­able. One po­ten­tial prob­lem is that you end up with a 90cm cable be­tween the re­ceiver and the cam­era but, on the plus side, the re­ceiver fea­tures its own two-stage op­er­at­ing but­ton, so you can also use it as a cable re­lease, even if the bat­ter­ies in the trans­mit­ter have gone flat.

The trans­mit­ter mod­ule has a four-po­si­tion switch for Sin­gle, Con­tin­u­ous (one shot per sec­ond), Bulb and Self-timer (four-sec­ond de­lay) drive modes. Only the Bulb op­tion re­quires phys­i­cal changes to the cam­era’s own drive set­tings. Max­i­mum range is 150 me­tres.

Flat bat­ter­ies won’t stop you us­ing this re­mote re­lease
