Well, I have some Christmas bonus burning a hole in my pocket and wanted to get a couple things for my bag.
What is anyone using for their remote control shutter releases (for Nikon with 10-pin connector?)
I’ve been too cheap to buy the $64 Nikon remote cable/wired release and have been using cheap 3rd party remotes figuring I could just buy a couple and if they fail/break, no biggie, they’re cheap.
Well, I’m done with that as I’ve gone through at least 3 in the last couple years.
I’m looking at getting the Nikon WR-10 set up with the receiver that plugs in to the 10-pin connector and with the handheld wireless WR-T10 remote.
Tired of the long wire tethered to the camera when I’m out in the field. The biggest peeve I have with the D800E is the positioning of the connection for the 10-pin cable plug; of course not a huge deal though.
I would be concerned about losing the wireless remote too.
Having the ability to literally remotely trigger the camera from some distance is a “nice to have” feature, but I don’t shoot birds or have a need to (maybe I will in the future).
What is your set up and preference?
- Wireless remote - brand and experience
- Wired remote - like the Nikon MC-30A
- Some other option, recommendation?
thanks in advance!
