Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Photo Plus Infrared Shutter Remote for Nikon 1 V2 V1 J3 J2 J1 S1 D600 D7100 D7000 D5200 D5100 D5000 D3200 Coolpix P7700 P7100 P7000 8800 8400 (Electronics)
I was very pleased when the shutter-remote arrived - but confused when it didn't work immediately, and it didn't have any instructions with it - but then i decided it was MY fault, for not checking the camera-settings on my Nikon.....and sure enough, you have to set the camera each time you want to use the remote shutter-release. I found the instructions to do this, in my camera user-manual. Essentially, I needed to enter the camera 'menu' then select 'release mode' then choose between 'quick release' or 'delayed release' options. The product works within about 15 feet in front of the camera, and facing the camera sensor. The battery it uses is a CR2025 - a popular easily-obtainable power supply costing about £2. After setting the camera mode, the product itself then worked perfectly. I may even order another, to keep as a backup , as the item is excellent value, and really useful .
