A Wireless remote control is essential for sharp shots with long duration exposures, and especially at night. Just the act of pressing the shutter button can cause camera shake, resulting in a blurry, duff shot. Plus if your exposure is anything over 30 seconds (and if you’re taking two exposures, with a longer one for the darker landscape areas in shot) you need a remote control to hold the shutter open for long durations such as 10 minutes and more. “I also use my wireless control so I can fire my camera remotely for cool selfies while I stand in shot with my head torch beaming up into the sky,” says Alyn.
