This product works flawlessly and was much cheaper than the nikon original.

I've used it extensively and it is a real asset to my photography.

A very good deal at the price.

This is a really nice remote not to big and not to small fits in the hand quite nicely . To activate just remove the plastic film at the bottom of the remote and you are ready to go. Remote setup must be done in the camera before use then just hit the button and take some pictures. Indoor photography the remote will trigger the shutter from directly behind the camera which is useful but this is not so outside. I would recommend this remote its so simple to use...

This remote control is available at a fraction of the nikon counterpart's price.
It was the first time I used remote shutter release, so I tried something cheap. I am very happy with it, works very well and also has a good working radius (in relation to the camera sensor)
I would definitely recommend it!

Excellent buy & value. The reason I purchased this item is that it fires from the rear of the camera indoors. Ordered from Amazon Fri. night & received on following Monday morning. Highly recomend.

It's good quality, works on my Nikon F75, it works just fine when photographing in a studio, but it gets confused when photographing outside, especially among nature.

I haven't used the original Nikon one; saying that this product is no inferior to the original one. It does what it says in the specifications. I have used it on several occasions and seems to be working great with no complaints so far. I have tried using it in between the range of 3 to 4 meters and was absolutely fine.
Unlike the original one, this one is inexpensive and looks better.
The item was delivered promptly and haven't experienced any problems with the genuineness of the product.

This is inexpensive, works right out of the box and functions when your are slightly towards the back of the camera away from the sensor. I haven't yet tried it outdoors but indoors it works perfectly. The amount of time it saves and options it opens up is worth the purchase alone. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a remote.
