The Bower RCWN1R Wireless Shutter Release Set is an extended range wireless system designed for professional and advanced amateur users of select Nikon cameras with a 10-pin connector. The set consist of the receiver and the shutter release transmitter. The remote system is very handy for taking pictures of subjects that are difficult to approach, or to minimize vibration for close-ups and time exposure. The remote fires the camera from a maximum distance of 90'. Sixteen transmission channels are available to prevent interference between other cameras using wireless remotes.

    Bower RCWN1R reviews

    RCWN1R Wireless Shutter Release Set is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKED WELL FOR SEVERAL YEARS This is about the most valuable piece of accessory gear I have and use it all the time. I've had one of these for several years and it has worked well. The suddenly stopped working issue is usually one of the pin switches getting changed by accident. They are firm switches, but it has happened to me. Just put back at correct number and you are good to go. I'm just ordering a new one, as my first one was partially crushed. However, I got it working again. The range on this is great, just extend the little antenna.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good Works great even through walls. I've had it at about 60 feet (with the antenna down) with no problems and so easy to use. With this product you don't have to depend on line of sight like some other brands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Once Figured Out / NO HOT SHOE Mnt This is an initial review prior to fieldwork. Once figured out, this unit seems to work very well and has a 3 year warrantee (two years longer than everyone else).Transmitter:What's good: Simple and straight forward. Put in the battery. A partial press allows the camera to focus, a full press initiates the shutter release.What's bad: I do not think the battery door will last long. It does not snap strongly into place.What's ordinary: Units of this kind and price are typically not solid. I wouldn't go so far as to say they are flimsy, but they would probably not hold up well if dropped.Receiver:What's good: The frequency toggle switches are easy to change. There is an on/off toggle switch rather than an on/off button so you can see if the switch is on or off. What's bad: Mostly set up is a problem. Once figured out, you are good to go. First, what should be a simple is made complicated. In this unit the batteries must be inserted in the opposite direction. Unfortunately, the battery springs are on the same side giving the misleading cue that the batteries go in the same direction. This is the first electronic unit I've ever seen that has a positive terminal touching a spring. So before figuring that out, I spent lots of wasted time with a unit that I could not get to work because I had one of the batteries in the wrong direction. I thought it was not working and was planning on returning it. If you look inside the cavity, it does show you the correct orientation for the batteries. If the springs had been in the conventional orientation, I wouldn't have had to look at the inside of the cavity. In other words, the springs told me the wrong orientation, the inner markings told me the correct orientation.Second, this unit DOES NOT attach to the camera hot shoe as advertised ... as stated on the packaging. ... the company changed their product, but not their packaging.Third, the on/off switch does not show you what position is on vs off. While you can easily figure out that on is towards the light, I think all switches should be labeled. Also, there is no light or warning if you leave the unit in the on position (probably none of these inexpensive units do that) allowing the batteries to deplete. So keep spare ones on hand.Performance:Using fresh batteries, this unit worked well from 60 feet and the signal successfully went through three walls at 60 feet. I have not yet tried greater distances because I only need about 20 feet on rare occasions. That performance is impressive. So once you have the nuances figured out, you've got a good unitassuming that it holds up over time. In spite of the lack of a shoe mount, I am keeping this unit and hope it continues to work well over the long haul.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! I use this with my D500 and it works as stated. If you need one, save money and buy this one. Excellent service from B&H.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lost Cause Never got the darn thing to work. You have to be careful how the batteries are placed; But, that didn't even get mine to work. In all fairness, It could be my settings or even the camera "Nikon D300s"... I just gave up, threw the darn thing in a drawer and might come back to it later. Yes,I did experiment with the channels. I have remote Yongnuo� speedlight� wireless controls, and I've manages to work them; So , not like I don't know how to set channels.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bower Wireless Shutter Release I would have given it Five Stars but someone had removed the battery and replaced it with a worn out battery that measured less than 9.4 V which is much less than 12 V. I stopped at a drug store on the way to dinner and was ripped off.� With the sale price and my Rewards Card (last four�0998) I paid more for the battery than the wireless shutter release. Very dissappointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bower RCWN1R Wireless Shutter Release Works like a champ! Add your two AAA batteries, make certain the switch settings on the transmitter and receiver are the same, attach the cable to the camera - and it works! Just that simple, and just that easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the price Not totally as rock solid as a nikon remote, but by far the most reliable of the low priced ones I've tried. Easy to use and has fired every time. Pretty much all you can ask, right?
