5.0 out of 5 stars Works very well with Nikon D50, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maxsimafoto - Compatible Wireless IR Remote Control Control for Nikon D7100 D7000 D5200 D5100 D5300 P7100 P7800 P7700 D5000 D3200 D3300 D3000 D40 D60 D70 D90 D100 P6000 8400 8800 F75 F65 F55, LiteTouch 150ED, 140ED, 130ED, 110S, 100W, D600, D610 Nikon 1, J1, J2, J3, S1, V1, V2 as ML-L3. (Electronics)
Setup is not obvious on the D50: you have to toggle the self timer button (near the shutter release) to select the mode: timer, delayed remote or instant remote. There is also a menu setting for the remote standby timer ie how long the camera will stay in remote mode before going back to normal.

The remote seems fairly well made and with my D50 it seems to work anywhere in the same room as the camera and even from the rear (presumably by reflecting the infra red off nearby objects). I tested it outside in cloudy conditions and it works for just over 10m.

If you can't see a reason to buy this device:
I actually bought it to help with copying of lots of old snapshots with the camera locked off in fully manual mode. Apart from preventing camera shake when you press the shutter, it also means you never have to worry about accidentally moving the focus or touching anything else between shots. It is also very handy for getting surprise close-ups of your pets, children etc and I will certainly keep it in the holdall.

It arrived next day as promised (Prime). I think this is a genuine bargain.

By the way, for those that like to chance it on the specs, my other camera is a Nikon D3100 and I can confirm it has no infra red sensor; you will need a wired or RF wireless unit for that model.
