Wire­less remotes are great when shoot­ing your­self in the land­scape be­cause they al­low you to re­lease the shut­ter at dis­tances of­ten up to around 100m. This means you can be com­fort­ably in po­si­tion and only re­lease the shut­ter when you’re ready, rather than rac­ing the self- timer. You can even com­bine the two: use a re­mote with a five- sec­ond self- timer so you can hide the re­mote be­fore the shut­ter is re­leased. An­other op­tion for re­leas­ing the shut­ter is to use a Wifi app for your cam­era if it has this func­tion­al­ity. The key ad­van­tage here is that you get Live­view and ac­cess to cam­era set­tings so you can main­tain a high level of con­trol with­out hav­ing to walk back to the cam­era.
