      Comments about RPS Lighting RS-RT04/NA DLC RF Wireless Remote Release:

      Purchased this for use on my Nikon D80. Not a bad unit for the price and how I use it. Only drawback is that the cable needs to be about an inch longer. Quite difficult to mount this unit to the hot shoe and have the cable reach the port on the camera.

        Comments about RPS Lighting RS-RT04/NA DLC RF Wireless Remote Release:

        I use the wireless remote to get shots of birds and animals. I never had a misfire while taking about 50 pictures. I did do some testing before taking any shots, and found the working range for the auto focus feature is reduced somewhat by distance in a straight-line of sight set up. The auto focus feature is greatly reduced inside a building when working around corners. This did not cause me any concern because I think a manual focus pre-set is the best approach in most cases when using this product.

          We had purchased the Nikon remote release and were very disappointed. I talked to the B&H guys and was directed to this one. We have used it in over 100 shots so far and are thrilled with it.
          Daytime, Nighttime with flash, nighttime with timed exposure, all work great. It is just like being behind the camera. We wish we had purchased this the first time. Thanks B&H!

            I bought this to due long distance wildlife shots and I am pleased with the long range. I can be behind a blind, a wall or a large forested area. The battery life is good, so far I have logged over 10 hours on the same battery.

            Comments about RPS Lighting RS-RT04/NA DLC RF Wireless Remote Release:

            The batteries don't install easily and don't stay in, no power on/off switch. It took some effort to get working the first time but it finally worked. I put in away for a week and tried it again but it won't work and hasn't worked since.

            I replaced it with an RFN SM-701 wireless shutter release and it works great!

            RF remote works for me

              Best Uses

                Comments about RPS Lighting RS-RT04/NA DLC RF Wireless Remote Release:

                I use a remote mostly for shooting birds, generally on feeders. This remote is particularly useful for that as the 3'-6' cables on most remotes gets the operator too close, plus they don't allow me to trigger an outdoor camera from indoors. I will also use this remote for long exposures. So far this remote has triggered the shutter every single time I've pressed the button. I would guess 50 actuations so far including a few from about 50' just to test it. It fully supports the partial press for focus and exposure. I've got my D80 set up for continuous shooting and that works with the remote also. I can think of two small negatives; the construction seems a little chintzy for the price, and the L shape plug points up when plugged into the camera.

                  Comments about RPS Lighting RS-RT04/NA DLC RF Wireless Remote Release:

                  I use the remote to release my Nikon D70, where the camera tends to be 20-30 feet away from me, in natural settings.

                  At 85 feet the camera fired flawlessly every time I pressed the release button. I really like the fact that I don't have to put my camera into "remote" mode, allowing me to easily jump between on-camera shutter release and the remote.

                  I have even tested it in my condo, where it released 30 of 30 shots with me on the 3rd floor and the camera *in the basement*.

                        I purchased this remote for indoor sports photographry shooting at a range of 36 feet...after 2 days of attempting 500 images, I would estimate that it actually triggered my D-80 approximately 10 percent of the time...the range isn't anywhere near 85' to 100'...extremely frustrating! When will Nikon introduce a wireless remote for the D-80?
