Here's what I understand from the German product description:
Wireless radio remote control release (16 channel, 433 MHz) for Nikon DSLR cameras with MC-DC2 connections*. Serial release and time exposure (bulb). Range upto 30m (also through walls). Very easy installation of the receiver via the Remote input. Two stage release key - autofocus, release. For timed exposure, the release has to be pressed for 3 seconds.
* Compatible with the D90 and D5000
The product comes with 2xAAA batteries for the transmitter, and 1xLR23 battery for the receiver. The transmitter comes with the shutter, and the receiver comes with an on/off switch. Channels on both must be set identical for operation.
It was easy to set up; the transmitter plugs into the GPS socket. Contrary to the ML-L3 IR remote, you dont have to set the shooting mode to remote (It took me a while to figure this out, though).
The remote supports 3 modes -
(a) single-shutter - ie, the camera is in signle shot mode. Here, you just half-press the shutter for autofocus, then depress it fully to take the shot.
(b) continuous shutter - ie, the camera is in continuous shoot mode. Here, you keep the button depressed after autofocus, and the camera keeps shooting until you release the button
(c) Bulb shutter - ie, the camera is in bulb shoot mode.Read more ›
I haven't scientifically tested the range, but I've never had a problem, including through walls, and don't even bother extending the aerial.
The connector on the receiver plugged into the GPS socket on the D90 and was held very firmly so no fear of its coming loose. Using it, first, at close range, I found focussing and shutter operation speeds to be instantaneous and further experimenting showed me that I had made a good choice. I placed the camera in my back bedroom, facing towards the window and operated transmitter from the front bedroom. The two rooms have a stairway between them which meant the signal had to pass through two brick walls. No problem at all. Operating the the tiny transmitter from the other side street and with the camera downstairs - perfect. Whether the transmitter is held in front, at the side or behind the camere it never fails. Operating range is claimed to be ninety feet though I haven't yet tested this.
For a rapid succession of shots, simply hold down the button. For timed exposures at night or in very dim light, set the camera to manual and hold down the button for the desired length of time. Simples!
Wholeheartedly recommended, and for the money, a bargain.

Works beautifully and is way more flexible in use than the cheap IR-remote. Can be easily hidden from view as it does not need line-of-sight.
