Satechi Announces Availability of Wireless Timer and Remote


Being the “photographer” in my family means there are very few pictures of me. Part of that issue boils down to the fact that I’m often reluctant to hand my camera over to someone else to take a pic.

Satechi’s WTR-A wireless remote control and shutter should help with my lack of self-portrait. Designed for most Canon SLR’s, this transmitter/receiver combo also includes a built in intervalometer which should come in handy for you time lapse photography folks. Why time lapse features aren’t just built in to modern cameras these days, I’ll never understand…

Full PR after the jump.

The new timer remote is compatible with most of the advanced Canon cameras, including the new Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

The Wireless Timer Remote Control Shutter 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 up to 50 feet away. Additionally, the remote is handy for taking images of subjects that are difficult to approach while using minimal vibration such as scenic or animal photography.
