Good piece of kit but a few tips to share,
This review is from: Pixel RW-221/DC2 Wireless Shutter Remote with DC2 Type Terminal for Nikon DSLRs (Camera)
I bought this Item for use with my Nikon D7000, works great and easy to set up, but just a few tips that might help future purchasers.
The connecting cable is very very tight fit into the GPS slot on the camera, I broke 2 conectors within a short space of time, luck has it i managed to get the first on out of camera, (snapped it of by knocking it while carrying camera on tripod, my fault). second broke as i tried to pull it out after use( very tight fit as i said).I liked the product otherwise, so i bought 2 spare cables, before use i sprayed the camera end of the cable with 3in1 silicone spray lubricant, let it dry and resprayed again, and put it in the camera. It went in and came out a lot easier and gets even better with use. also do not pull hard on the connector rather tease it back out by pushing partly against the camera body, job done no further probs, and having a spare is piece of mind. the remote handset is not overly robust so just treat with care, auto focuses from remote so you can wait for as long as you like once you've set up the shot before taking it and works from a good way off. Nice little piece of kit only 4 stars cos of the build of handset and conector tightness, but for price not bad at all, and works well.
