Wireless Remote Control
Friday 6 April 2012   —   Category: Equipment
I had written in 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.

Because of the short cable, a few months later I purchased a Sony RML1AM Remote Commander Shutter Release (pictured right) with a 17-foot cable! OK, it is on the spendy side, but the extra-long cable is a LOT more versatile — sometimes that’s just what you need!

But there are other times when you want to cut the cable completely! I look around and found this Satechi WR-F100 Wireless Remote Control (pictured left).

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.
