Simple, funtional, vfm
on 20 December 2010
Works well straight from the box with my Sony Alpha 230. Remote must be in the line of sight of the camera sensor, so you can't use it from behind the camera (although maybe if you had a reflective surface strategically positoned you could). It works up to about 70 degrees from the sensor though. Also, in addition to almost instant (0.5 second delay) firing, a great feature is that the remote has a 2 second button, so that camera fires 2 seconds after pressing. For the price (£8 incl p&p from this seller) I would recommend, esp as the Sony version is a uch larger and more complex and functionally redundant item (it has buttons for remote slideshows for example). This one is a Chinese import and compatible, and is smll enough to carry around in my camera bag. Cheap, chearful but functional and value for money in my oninion.
