It does what is required of it!
on 15 May 2009
This is a generic 4 in 1 camera remote control, with buttons for Pentax, Nikon and Canon. I bought it for my Pentax DSLR, which means that only one button - S for Shutter Release - works. For Pentax compact digital cameras, there's a second T/W - telephoto/wideangle - button.
Nikon users get just one button - a different S for Shutter Release - whereas Canon DSLR users get two buttons - S and 2S for immediate and 2-second delayed shutter release. Canon Powershot users get S T and W buttons plus others for use during replay.
With 5 different "S" buttons, it is not intuitive to use, though the tiny manual explains all. It would have been nicer if this remote had a little recessed switch to specify Pentax, Nikon, Canon 1 or Canon 2 rather than cluttering the face with unusable buttons for everyone, but at a tiny fraction of the cost of the manufacturers' own remote controls, I'm not complaining. It does what is required of it, which is essentially very simple!
