not quite what i expected, but ok

  • Summary: This remote is small enough to slip into a pocket and very lightweight, both nice features. Where is disappoints is: 1) no simple manual to sync to camera (I went online to find out how to sync), 2) its response time is slightly delayed, which means I've missed a shot or two because of that. Good for stills and product photography, etc.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Ergonomic Design, Nice Button Configuration
  • Cons: Weak Signal

In need of improvements

  • Summary: Does what it is intended to do, only if you are in front of the camera. I like to use remotes while taking shots on the tripod, to avoid any additional vibrations. It is difficult to accomplish shots like this unless you are directly in front of the camera due to the IR design (like a TV remote). It needs more peripheral range.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Ergonomic Design, Nice Button Configuration, Price
  • Cons: Peripheral range

Product good, but no instructions

  • Summary: Not even a paper saying to refer to your camera's owner manual was provided, nor what type battery needed, and the inclusion of both of these would give a higher ranking to a product that works just fine for the purpose intended. Also, would help to indicate battery and case are included with the product.

It Works

  • Summary: Seems to be finicky as far as positioning, sometimes it works right on spot other times you have to wave your hand around until you get it to work. I am not sure if its the camera receiver or the remote but the whole process is a little flaky. I have only been working with it off and on for the last week so maybe it'll get better who knows.
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Doesn't work Consistantly

Not enough range

PhotoBrock, B&H Photo
19 May 2008
  • Summary: I am just an amateur Photographer that was looking for a remote for macros and self portraits. I have not gotten much use out of this remote personally. I used it to take a group shot at a work function and found it to not have enough range to be truely effective. For macro work it has been working well for what I need. So if you are looking for range this is not what you want. But for a good reliable remote just to reduce camera shake it is perfect.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Ergonomic Design, Nice Button Configuration
  • Cons: Weak Signal

Good with Limits

  • Summary: This is a great little remote. It is certainly better than the cable release of yore. It is however limited by line of sight to the IR receiver.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Nice Button Configuration
  • Cons: Line of Sight, Weak Signal

Works fine, but....

Nature Nut, B&H Photo

  • Summary: This remote works fine and the range seems pretty good. I have not had it long, so I cannot really speak to its durability or battery life.That being said, I was a bit disappointed when it arrived. First of all, it is tiny with no manufactured way to attach it to anything (like a lanyard or even a key ring).
  • Pros: Compact
  • Cons: Over-priced

  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Pratical, Strong Signal

Working out kinks

CMM, B&H Photo
12 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought this to be included in family pictures but it doesn't seem to get us all in focus-if you don't hit the shutter release on the camera 1st it focuses on the closest thing to the camera. I haven't tried hitting the shutter release button 1st yet. It was a little hard to hide the transmitter and still get it to work-maybe I just need to play with it more-it is small though. Overall it's cheap enough to play with-not a huge loss if it doesn't work out.
  • Pros: SMALL AND COMPACT
  • Cons: Weak Signal
