    I use this product to allow the remote focus and shutter release of my Nikon D200. The size of the unit is great - compact and light. It even comes with a pouch to store the remote and the small receiver (that mounts to your camera). Other units only allow the remote release of the shutter itself. It is a great feature to be able to remotely focus your camera. The Dot Line unit allows has a two stage progression of the remote button. The initial push of the button focuses the camera while a continued push of the button on the remote triggers the release of the shutter.

    The transmitter (only 3" long) is the size of a vehicle alarm remote. Small, compact and lightweight. It has an antenna that you can extend approx. 5". With the antenna extended the range of the remote is greatly extended and there are security settings you can make on the unit itself (sliding small switches called dip switches) to all but eliminate any interference from other radio controlled devices near by.

    Great unit, great features, very competitive price.

    Based on the other reviews I was hesitant to order the release. However, I have needed something with a greater range (I currently use the IR remote that gives me about 20 feet or so). So, I gave this one a try.It arrived well packaged. I opened everything, installed the batteries, and hooked the remote up to my D1x and then D200.Fitting the plug into the camera was tight, so I was careful with that.Once everything was hooked up I depressed the button on the remote and it triggered through to the camera - but the button did not rebound. I found that squeezing the edges of the plastic casing would enable the button to pop back up. The button stuck about 75%/85% of the time.I did not test the range.Because of the button sticking, and the other reviews, I decided I couldn't risk [$]on a product that may or may not work when I need it.Despite being very hopeful that the product would work I'm sending it back.Hopefully someone else will design a similar product at a similar price point - or perhaps this one will one be redesigned. In the mean time I'll keep using my IR remote (and wishing for a radio-based replacement!).

    Great wireless release

    By Jacobstills

    from New york

    Comments about RPS Lighting RS-RT04/N10 Wireless RF Release:

    This is the second time I have purchased this wireless release. My first purchase lasted over 250,000 frames and had to be replaced only due to miss use (I cut through the cable!) the controls are fast and accurate and I have never had issues with the radio frequency.

        Comments about RPS Lighting RS-RT04/N10 Wireless RF Release:

        I gave this 4 stars, even though it works fine, because the battery cover on the receiver kept coming off and it took awhile for me to find it the last time it fell off. I finally had to tape it with electrical tape.

        It fires every time, just had to be careful about inadvertently shifting the channel settings.

        Still, works great and a lot better than the wired shutter release I was using.

          Has worked for me in every situation where I have used it. Great for photos where I want to be included in the shot, for studio and product shots and wildlife with tripod mounted camera. Much better than the Nikon ML-3 IR wireless remote that requires line of sight and the price is $160 less.

            This has the potential to be a great device and I was hoping that cost did not mean poor quality. However, this device is very temperamental and only worked on occasion even with new batteries and close proximity. It would work once, and then not again. If anything changed in the slightest it would stop working. It only works, when it does, when the remote is on the same side of the camera as the attached piece.

                Bought wireless remote to learn HDR. Weird design with exposed switch setting right on the top. Super simple directions to use. Popped in the batteries, plugged it into my D200, turned on the reciever. Worked like a charm!

                  Simple set-up. The location of the 10 pin connector is not one of Nikon's more ergonometric design points so connection with big fingers can be a chore. I have now used this for sunrise shots and it fired every time within the stated range. Like all of these components they are not designed to withstand abuse so care must be taken storing the unit and avoid banging it around when using. I velcro the receiver to the camera body while using it.

                      Works great with tripod except the battery compartment cover fell off the second day of use.They might use a screw to hold the back from falling off.Lost that so i used tape to cover the back of the device.

                        I bought this for my d700 specifically for long exposures beyond 30s. Just click and hold for 3 seconds to start the exposure and then click again to stop. Also great for family and group shots. Well made and compact. The dongle hangs down and the range is at least 50-100 feet or greater.

                                When I took the remote out of the box, it didn't work. The manual is completely unhelpful, but I realized that the A23 battery that comes with the trigger was dead, so straight away I had to purchase a new one. It worked intermittently after that so long as the receiver was facing the trigger and neither were too far away from each other. Sometimes, it wouldn't fire at all. And now, it's completely defunct. I changed the batteries, checked the connection the camera, and nothing. The transmitter appears to be working (light comes on), but nothing in the receiver. I know I won't be buying this one again for a replacement.

                                  I bought this to use with a Nikon D300s camera. Once plugged into the camera, the cord on the receiver is long enough for the actual unit to hang below the camera so you can fire the camera from any angle. The transmitter is small and lightweight - press the button partway to signal the camera to focus, then press down further to take the photo. It works great and it's very reasonably priced.

                                    I was a little disappointed with the wireless shutter release options i had with my Nikon D300s, it seemed most needed to attach to the camera hotshoe & cost alot more than my previous infrared wireless remote. After reading the reviews on this product, I took a chance, ordered it & am so pleased with it. It works every time. Best part is that this remote works thru walls & has amazing reach, I am quite impressed! Looking forward to shooting with this remote for years to come. If you want a consistent remote that doesn't need to hook up to the camera hotshoe, then this remote is a no-brainer. I would buy this product again & again, plus you can't beat the price. Thanks B&H for proving an awesome variety of products at can't beat prices.

                                    For close up photography and portraiture.
                                    Initial connection was a little bit cumbersome but my old MC30 has the same demeanor. I bought this to replace the MC30 which was misplaced during a recent trip. I was pleasantly surprised for its reliability and ease of setup. Now, I don't have to rush to get into the picture when using the self-timer.

                                            Simple, easy to install and use and it works. I got a surprise when a half press on the remote lit a red indicator showing the camera was aurofocusing, you get a green indicator when the shutter fires. I like the dip switches as I can tell at a glance what code I have programed and if it matches the receiver. The connector is a little difficult to get started on the camera body but when tightened it is a secure connection. You might want a piece of velcro to attach the receiver to the camera body to keep it from dangling from the connection cable.

                                                This was not an expensive remote, however, it works great. I used it to take photos of my family (including me) in Hawaii on vacation. It is easy to assemble and is very simple to use.
