What's the difference?

I'm looking to buy a wireless remote control and have narrowed it to two. They are identical except one is 433 Mhz and the other is 2.4 Ghz - not being an electronics whizzo can any one tell me what the difference will be? Thanks.

Re: What's the difference?

AFAIK the 2.4 Ghz standard is now used in various household appliances such as video senders cordless phones etc as it is less prone to interference.

I would not have thought that for a RC it would make a lot of difference. I've now got three radio triggers and a wireless RC and TBH I have not a clue what frequency they work on. They all work OK though

Re: What's the difference?

There is a significant difference and one that you should consider. In the UK, 433MHz is used for Radio Activated Keys. Using that frequency in the wrong place or at the wrong time may attract attention from the authorities. It's unlikely but then, so are camels.

Re: What's the difference?

Thank you for your reply, Sejanus, I have since purchased this one and so far it works a treat. I'm doing some photos at a wedding at which I'm also a guest and would be required in some group photos...hence the need for the remote.
