The Pixel RW-221/DC2 Wireless Shutter Release can be used to wirelessly trigger your Nikon camera from up to 100 meters away. The receiver is equipped with a standard female thread on the bottom, which allows you to place it on top of a light stand next to your camera. Alternatively, the universal hotshoe connection allows you to place the receiver on top of your camera. The transmitter is capable of triggering multiple receivers. This way you can trigger multiple cameras with just one transmitter. The RW-221/DC2 Wireless Shutter Release is suitable for the following cameras: Nikon: DSLR D7100, D7000, D5300, D5200, D5100, D5000, D3300, D3200, D3100, D750, D610, D600, D7100/D7000, D5500, D5100, D5000, D3100, D90, D3200, D600 The RW-221/DC2 can be used with various other cameras through the use of a connection cable. Such connection cables can be found in the optional accessories tab below or alternatively, you can find the cable suitable for your camera here:

I use a Canon 5D MkIII so bought the RW-221/N3 version.
Straight out of the box it functions perfectly even with the control button well hidden from the camera and allowing operation from a good distance. I tried it out in bright light - where the Hahnel fails and had 100% success in all tests
A few notes on the different functions:
Firstly, the switch movement between the four functions is quite small and not obvious so do check that you are using the correct one before you start any serious shooting.
- Single shoot works as you would expect with your Camera in One Shot mode
- 1S Continuous Shoot. Leave your camera on One Shot mode and it will take one shot per second for as long as you hold the controller button down.
- High Speed Continuous Shoot. This the same setting on the controller but you must change your camera to High Speed Continuos mode. This was the most disappointing setting as whatever ISO and Shutter Speed setting I used I could only get 2 shots each time. Yes they were high speed but I might have wanted more than two shots. My camera shoots at 5-6 per second normally.
- Bulb Shooting. You also need to set your camera to bulb mode. The first press of the controller will open the shutter. You don't need to hold the button down. When you want to close the shutter just press the button again.
- Delay Shooting. If you leave your camera in One Shot mode pressing the Controller will activate it's own 5 second delay. There is no sound to give you a warning that the shutter will fire you just need to count.
You could, alternatively, set your camera to it's 2 or 10 second timer and the Controller to Single Shooting for this to work with the camera countdown. So, you have options beyond that described in the manual.
Two additional slight downsides:
The product description on Amazon did say that 4 AAA batteries would be included. Whilst there is a moulded space in the packaging I did not receive any batteries. Might have just been my misfortune.
Secondly, the controller does not have an Off Switch. It just goes to sleep after a period. This may not work for me as I plan to keep the kit in my bag. I might therefore accidentally wake it and use up the battery. I will need to see if this is a problem requiring me to remove the batteries after each use.
On the plus side, the kit is small, sleek and light. The receiver fits nicely in your hotshoe or will safely hang if you are using on camera flash or flash controller.
Overall. A great little gadget for the reasonable cost. None of the mentioned downsides actually cause me a problem at the moment so I really love this little device..
On Amazon the price of this fluctuates massively - I waited and 'intercepted' the decent/about the lowest sale price it goes down to of £15.85 (Nov 16); buy at the 'wrong' time and it can be as high as £22 !!!
The only (self-inflicted !) issue I had was finding the input socket for the supplied cable on the camera body, as I thought it would be alongside the HDMI/USB sockets - it isn't !!!
On the FZ150 the 'MIC/REMOTE' socket has it's own dedicated port under a small flap which is easily hidden by the camera strap - on the left side of the camera body, near the HDMI/USB socket area....
The flap is a little rigid, but the small right-angled plug of the cable (NOT the straight plug at the other end, that fits into the receiver unit !) fits into the socket quite easily.
For the FZ150, the only limitation to note is that as the camera has no 'BULB' capability, the remote setting for that feature results in a 'normal' single-shot selection.
Finally, the hotshoe fitting is purely for stowage of the received unit - it makes no electrical connection, so can be left 'loose' if desired as the signal still gets to the camera receiver via the cable....
Not the greatest build quality but works just fine with my Nikon 7000 and does everything I need. I'm not sure I'd trust it for professional use - I've had the odd mis-fire. It can be used for single or multiple shots, and will also work with the self timer if you want a delay after firing the trigger, great for complicated self portraits. It's much more reliable than infra red triggers and doesn't require line of sight either. I'm very pleased with it.
It's pretty intuitive to use - just sit on the hot shoe (or let it dangle if the hot shoe is occupied) and plug in to the appropriate port on the side of the camera. The switch options are self explanatory. Some say the fit in the port is too tight but I found it good and snug - nothing worse than a loose plug.
