Timer remote shutter for Sony Alpha
on 22 August 2010
There are loads of accessories for the Canon and Nikon cameras, but surprisingly few for the Sony Alpha camera. This remote shutter I believe is a MUST HAVE. In its basic form, it is a shutter release, mount your camera on a tripod, connect the camera with this remote and you have a faultless remote shutter. The reason for purchasing this remote, is the auto release feature. If you wish to try time lapse photography, and do not want to sit for hours/days counting down and pressing the button, this will do it for you, it even half presses the shutter in order for your camera to focus before shooting the picture. intervals from 1 sec to infinite, with breaks in between, so for instance, 10 sec countdown and click, 10 sec and click and so on. But also for instance, 10 sec and click, wait an hour, the 10 sec and click, wait an hour, 10 sec and click e.t.c.
A very useful piece of kit. Easy to use, light and small enough to be carried any where. Time lapse was only available to specialists, now anyone with a DSLR can do this, really easily with this remote shutter. True you still need some software to collate all those pictures, and a decent sized memory card to store all those images, but this remote shutter would be the most important piece of equipment needed. The price is amazing too...
