Introduction
##########

This remote was included free with my Nikon SLR camera. The retail price of this is around £54.99.

The Unit
#######

You know your getting a quality product when you hear "Nikon" - they have been in the business for years, and are one of the most trusted companies when it comes to photography.

As the name suggests it's only suitable for Nikon cameras. I have the Nikon D80 and it works perfectly with it. One side of the cable inserts to the side of the camera and the other end has the remote on it. The remote is of a nice side and it fits in your hand comfortably. As you would expect it has a button which when pressed releases the shutter. The good thing about this is that it has a shutter release lock, so those of you who like long exposures - used in night time photography would understand this is a good addon. By using a remote you eliminate the chance of wobbling the camera when pressing the shutter release button on the camera.

Advantages
##########

Of the length of the cable is not enough for you (80cms) then Nikon have made available an extension cable. This can be purchased separately for around £45.00 for a length of 3m. In my view this is really expensive as the actual unit is £54.99 !

Disadvantages
############

You can get other much better remotes for half the price, which have the additional autofocus. Really here all you are paying for is the "Nikon" brand name.
