Excerpt: I use this remote to do trick photography, alot of which requires use of a tripod and self portraits. You do have to be either beside the sensor on the cameraor in front of it but if you are it works every time.
Excerpt: Any quality photo goody that is inexpensive is a good thing. I have costly radio triggers for flashes, but this little gadget does not complete with those. This is for tripping your shutter.To click your camera, it appears that you have to aim it directly at the front of the camera.
Excerpt: This is a perfect little tool for everyone. It's cheap enough so it's not a huge deal if its lost or broken, and it works! You have to hit the camera from the front, but it still makes life a lot easier.
