Cable Remote Control for Sony Camera
Controlling your Sony camera remotely has many advantages. Choose from a wide range of cable remote control units to update your kit and widen your photographic possibilities.
The main feature of the remote control for a camera is to trigger the shutter without touching the camera. This is a great function for self-portraits and to reduce the effects of camera movement on the image taken. This is particularly important in nature photography where youre recording intricate detail and dont want camera shake. Its also beneficial, as the wildlife is not disturbed.
You can also set the self-timer at regular intervals, the number of frames and the exposure time of your photos. The buttons can be operated using just a thumb for ease of use.
In most models an LCD panel on the remote lights up for night time use showing the current settings so you can check them with a glance. Cable remotes support both still and moving images to suit all types of shooting.
Check the make and model of your Sony camera before you buy to make sure you get a compatible remote.
