"Wireless Shutter Release"


US
          

I just got one of these Asia made devices. It works on the D7000. Cost was $15.90 shipped. Takes about 4 weeks to get here. So if your in no rush here's a cheap assy for the D7000.

I am not affiliated with the supplier. This is just an FYI.

Here's the link:

If all you want is a wireless shutter release for the D7000, why not just get the Nikon ML-L3? It's genuine, and only $16.50 at Amazon with free shipping. Or if you want a knockoff, you can get them for as little as $4 shipped on eBay.

I agree, I have a ml-l3 as well. Perhaps the op can tell us what the advantage would be....? Range?

The ML-L3 is the IR shutter release. I have that as well. Paid $2.95 shipped and works great. You set the D7000 to IR mode and press the button while pointing at the front of the D7000.

The wireless unit I am talking about here is basically a wireless extension of the shutter release button on the D7000. Works in any mode. Press half way to focus. Full press perform the shutter release. Go in any direction up to 100m. Also the receiver has a short coiled cable and a release button on it as well with the same functions. This can be used as a wired shutter release. Basically this is the same is the Nikon MC-DC2 corded release but with an RF transmitter and receiver. It is a superior wireless function compared as to the ML-L3.

FWIW,

Rob

IR has the following limitations:

The IR receiver on the camera shuts off after 15 minutes. The RF units use the hardwire shutter release and do not time out.

Range up to 30 feet RF up to 1,000 feet.

Subject to interference from bright light, RF does not depend upon light.

Requires line of site between sensor and transmitter and can not pass through solid objects, RF passes through walls.

IR can not be used with other photographers with the same release, RF units use coded IDs so multiple shooters can use than at one time.

This unit, like others, can also have a release on the receiver unit, so one also gets a wired release.

This sounds interesting. I'd like to be able to photograph garden birds while I am inside the house. Would it work through a glass window?

Yes, most radio waves penetrate glass and other solid non-metallic material. You may lose some range.
