A Wireless Shutter Remote Control was on my wish list since I started thinking about getting a DSLR. However, buying a Canon 600D body and Tamron 18-50mm f2.8 lens overran my budget already. The remote control, therefore, had to wait for a while which I sort of regrated very quickly. Having a blog and trying to shoot pictures of yourself without any help makes you run back and forth between camera and your position. It is just so annoying, as you can imagine.
After 3 month in Sydney I ordered a Pixel Oppilas Wireless Shutter Remote Control on Amazon Germany and my family send it to me with a couple of other goodies. Many of you may know the actual Canon Remote which works via Infrared but that’s what limits you to stand in front of the camera (which I most of the time do) as the receiver is build in at the front of the camera body. Furthermore, it has a rather limited range.
This remote works with a wireless Control on you camera body, connected with it through a cable, which means that you’re not limited in the range or angle you stand to the camera. The range even goes to a 100meter and above. You can set different options of shooting on the actual remote, as single, continuous, bulb or delay shooting. Downside is that it is a little bigger than the tiny little Canon Remote and approximately double the price (~35€). Nonetheless, I’m very happy with my purchase. It makes shooting so much easier and more fun.
