New review: Phottix Wireless Remote

I have added a review of the Phottix wireless remote control which is available for Canon and Nikon users as well as Sony A100, Minolta 5D/7D and some others.

This is an extremely cheap (money wise) but very impressive bit of kit which I can recommend to any of the above users.

Review here: Pixalo Photographic Equipment Reviews - Wireless Remote C3 -

Cheers,
Rob

Re: New review: Phottix Wireless Remote

Thanks for the heads up Rob,

These do indeed look interesting, I'd see them advertised at various places for about 30 and had left them alone because the price was a bit steep, but at less than 15 from this seller I've gone for one aswell.

Iain, if yours interferes with mine, we'll know it has a heck of a distance limit but hey, it has 16 different channels so we will be fine

Re: New review: Phottix Wireless Remote

Rob, do you know if the Nikon versions work with Fuji S2 Pro cameras since the S2 uses a Nikon body?

Re: New review: Phottix Wireless Remote

I wasn't sure about this thing, coming straight from hong kong, but its a solid piece that seems to function well. I can't wait to set it up and get detailed closeups of deer and squirrels.

As previously mentioned though it does seem like a reasonably well built piece of kit so I've no real worries about that... as long as you don't throw it about the place too much I think it should last a decent amount of time, for 13 odd quid it's certainly worth taking the chance on!

Re: New review: Phottix Wireless Remote

Just tested mine for you Dave and it is working as good as ever and is still on the first set of batteries! I have used it regularly as well so it seems to be holding up just fine so far.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: New review: Phottix Wireless Remote

Just a quick update, just received my replacement (first one DOA) Phottix have brought out an updated version. New version now has a hotshoe mount for the receiver connected to the camera via curly recoil cable (not sure the correct term for that ) The remote is now slightly smaller as well. The other additions are a 2 second delay mode and on/off switches on both receiver and transmitter.
