Wireless shootin g
Wireless networking isn’t just for computers, smartphones and tablets. Some Nikon D-SLRs either have the functionality built-in or are able to accept a wireless signal, enabling you to stand some distance away and still fire the shutter. Options include third-party remotes, like those made by Hähnel, and the range of Nikon remotes. There’s also a Nikon remote app, which is available for Android and Apple smartphones, allowing you to preview, shoot and upload your images remotely with a Wi-Fienabled D-SLR.
Being able to stand at a distance from your camera and still capture an image has obvious advantages for, say, long-exposure landscape shots, especially in inhospitable conditions; or for when your camera is out of reach, such as when it's attached to the outside of a car.
