Wireless Remote Control

a previous article from last year about the inexpensive intervalometer (pictured to the right) I had purchased in order to do time-lapse photography. This device can also be used as a conventional remote shutter release. Even though it is a very useful accessory, the short 35-inch cable can be quite limiting in some situations.

With this little, two-piece device, I can take a picture from up to 300 feet away! Look, Ma, no wires!
I have a specific project in mind for which I want to use this wireless remote, but I don’t want to share more about it until it’s complete. But I have tested it around the house, and it seems to work just fine. I’m looking forward to using it to help me fulfill my vision for an upcoming shoot.
