San Diego, CA—A solution for time-lapse and action photography, Satechi’s new WTR-A wireless timer remote control shutter is compatible with most of the advanced Canon cameras, including the EOS 5D Mark III.
It can program multiple tasks, including delaying the capture of a photo, managing exposure time, setting a shooting interval and organizing a number of shots from 50 feet away. The remote is also handy for taking images of subjects that are difficult to approach while using minimal vibration, such as scenic or animal photography.
Other features includes a time remind speaker—a beeping alert that indicates the shutter is currently active and counts down the seconds until the shutter goes off. The timer also features a release signal lamp that indicates the timer has been set. The signal lamp’s red status indicator means the shutter has begun countdown or is on hold, while the green means the shutters has been released. Additionally, the wireless timer’s LCD screen features a screen illuminator to facilitate photographers taking images in a dark setting.
The Satechi WTR-A wireless timer remote control shutter retails for $59.99. satechi.net
