Product Highlights
  • Infrared Triggering System (IR)
  • Compact and Portable
  • Reduce Image Blurring
  • Battery Included

The Vello Infrared Remote Control is a compact and easy-to-use remote switch with a 15' (5 m) range for Nikon digital cameras that support infrared triggering. All you have to do to make it work is to set your camera (in the menu) to accept remote triggering, then aim the remote at the infrared (IR) sensor on your camera.

The IR-N1 enables you to capture images without touching the camera, thus reducing image blurring and allowing you to concentrate on other things, i.e. interacting with your baby to capture a once-in-a lifetime expression or a fleeting moment.

    Open the package, pull the plastic tab from the case set your camera to shot in wireless mode, and it works! It elimates any movement making for a much sharper image. I like the larger size than the smaller Nikon wireless remote (lost the first one I bought). I've been able to fire off shots from 20 feet away. Only minor dislike I have about it is if you standing really really close to your camera the remote has to be held at your camera's sensor level to fire. A little ackward raising my hand as high as my head.

    For the price I bought two. I've attached one to a lanyard with velcro that I wear around my neck. Easy to grab and better than searching my pockets. Great product!

    I used to have a Nikon ML-L3 remote. After many uses, the big button has started to show wear. There is now a crack on the plastic. I have had it for about a decade, though, so no complaints here.

    This Pearstone remote is a little larger than the Nikon. Otherwise, the function is the same - 1 simple button, 1 direct response from the camera.

        I bought this remote to use with my Nikon D7100 to eliminate any camera shake when taking photo's on my tripod. This is really handy when taking photo's on Bulb mode as well. All in all, for under $[$]this is great, no reason to pay more for a simple IR remote.

            This remote works my D610. It does everything I'd want it to. The bulb setting on the D610 in IR Remote mode is a toggle open/close shutter which this remote does. The camera even autofocuses before the shutter is activated. I have not geek-tested the distance limit but found it works across a couple of rooms in my house.

              it works. you push the button and it take the picture. only thing is you have to point it at a certain point on the camera otherwise it will not detect the IR. if you have no problem doing that, then this is a pretty handy piece of equipment.

              Comments about Vello IR-N1 Infrared Remote Control for Select Nikon Digital Cameras:

              I purchased this after misplacing my Nikon equivalent. The remote works as intended. It was accidentally put into the washer machine but still works after drying it. The only (possible) downside is its much larger size compared to Nikon's remote, though, this may not be an issue for people with larger hands. The button is also a bit smaller and harder to push but it doesn't take too long to get used to it.

              One minor complaint is that the packaging I got the remote in doesn't list its compatibility with Nikon's newer camera models such as the D600 (which I own). However, it does work with the D600 as described on the B&H product description.

                      Inexpensive and works right out of the package(battery included). Just set your camera on remote, aim the remote control at the infrared sensor on your camera and press the button. Because it uses infrared, there can't be anything between the remote and the camera sensor. that's the only minor drawback. Depending on where you are standing to get you shot, the lens might get in the way. But, all you have to do is move your arm until the path is clear.

                          You get what you pay for and in this case a usable remote for the occasional shot. Avid users may want one with better ergonomics and build quality, but you cant beat the price

                              This small compact remote controller works great with the D5300. Not much to say. I push the button & the camera snaps the photo. I haven't put it through multiple tests and I stayed close to the camera. I use it mostly to avoid camera shake issues. It saved me a few dollars & does what it is built to do. I haven't had it for very long yet, so I can't evaluate durability.

                                This is a great little IR remote trigger for my D7100. Easily works to the advertised 15 feet. Small and light with easy to find button. It has a hole for a tether but none is included. I just used a bright colored cord. Works as advertised and much cheap than the Nikon. I bought two. Battery is easy to change but I haven't had to yet.

                                  Use for no touch shutter release of J1 on tripod. Can't beat the price.

                                  I got this remote for my Nikon D7100 and V1 cameras. It works fine but it could be smaller! On the other hand, it has a hole for attaching a cord, which the Nikon remote lacks.

                                      This is a good remote control for my Nikon D3200, not only for the price, but it works fairly well, and the advertised range (15 feet) is pretty much accurate.

                                      The only thing lacking is a case, because paying $5 in other places for a remote control case for a $19.99 remote control it's just too much.

                                      This infrared trigger is small, light, and simple. It works well for everything I've used it for (self portraits, tripod long exposures), as long as the trigger can 'see' the camera. Overall glad I didn't buy a more expensive model, as this one has met my needs well.
