Product Description

The Manual Timer Remote Control Shutter (M) is an advanced shutter release tool for Nikon cameras. The MTR can be used to trigger the camera's shutter, as well as lock the shutter open while in bulb mode. This functionality is useful for long-exposure photographic techniques, such as light painting and star trails. The MTR can also be used as an intervalometer, able to capture groups of images while controlling the delay before the initial exposure, the exposure time, and the time-interval between each exposure. The Remote can control the camera shutter from up to 1 meter away, and has a standby battery life of 2 years.

I bought this product to act as an intervalometer for my Nikon D90 for time-lapse photography. There aren't many products currently that can do this for the D90, as a result of Nikon changing the remote cable connector. You can do time-lapse with Nikon's camera control software, but you'd also need to lug around a laptop and pay $170 for that minimalistic software. The Satechi product was the cheapest remote timer / intervalometer I could find, and its functions seemed to fit what I wanted so I bought it. Overall I'm very satisfied.

Functions

All timing functions work great. When used in full manual with the camera, the timer control can set the exposure time as well. The controls are pretty simple - one look at the user's manual and you'll know how to use the timer without needing to reference it again. If using any other modes on the camera (P, S, A), the remote simply acts as a remote timer / intervalometer. It's smart enough to pre-focus during count-down, prior to triggering the shutter - so for example, if you want to take 1 shot every 5 seconds, the timer will tell the camera to perform autofocus about 2 seconds prior to actually triggering the shutter. One of my initial concerns was that the documentation listed number of exposures from 1 - 399. This is the pre programmed number limitation, however you can also set it to `--` which essentially means keep taking pictures forever. This is the mode I especially wanted since I plan to take time-lapse photos over very long periods of time.

Build Quality

This is the only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars. The build is pretty cheap plastic, the battery cover is a little flimsy, but it's essentially what I expected for buying the absolute cheapest intervalometer I could find.

I also bought this to do some time lapse photography. Works great and is pretty simple.

You select delay (if any), bulb (if any), interval, number of exposures.

I bought the Satechi hand grip for the D90 but that will only allow you to take 99 pics. No limit on this if you select "--" for interval. Great tip.

Customer service from Satechi is quite good. They called to check to make sure I got the delivery. I called about the number of exposures on the hand grip and the guy called back twice to answer my questions.

Update: I used this to make a time lapse of my niece's wedding rehearsal. Set it to music. It was a big hit. Even my sister couldn't find something to gripe about...a first!

I also found a really great, cheap, and easy program to use to turn the single images into a movie: MovieSalsa. $20. Google it. I was really struggling to find something that was easy to use. Even my Sony Vegas sw was difficult....I screwed around for several hours trying to figure out how to do it.

With MovieSalsa you just dump the photo files in and it does the rest. Lots of things you can tweak if you want to read the directions and start modding it. Pretty easy to speed it up, slow it up, make it run backwards. Fantastic little program.

I then took the MovieSalsa movie, put it into Sony Vegas sw and added the music, titles, etc.... mainly because I was already pretty familiar with Sony Vegas. Zero problems.

I had this device for about 9 months and used it mainly for time lapse photography and astrophotography.

The manual is ok and the device is fairly intuitive to use. So no complaints here.
I also thought that it provides ease of use and good performance to cost ratio.

All the problems related to this device concern the connector that connects to the Accessory Port of the D90.
I must have one of the earlier versions of this device with the straight connector. So I cannot comment on the newer angled connector.

First of all, the mechanical coding on the straight connector is weak and it is therefore possible to plug it in the wrong way. As astrophotographer I deal a lot with low to no light situations. The connector is not angled and also has no tactile features that identify front and back.
Worse, it says "FJ" on one side and has an arrow on the other.
So which side is front???
It took me a while to figure out that "FJ" has to point towards the front on my unit.
But be aware - it may be different for your untit!

I noticed some issues with the camera connection a while ago but attributed it to the fact that I did not push the plug in far enough.
However, last night it finally quit completely on me and no pushing and wiggling could bring it back to life.
So I finally opened the connector for inspection and discovered that one of the 3 wires had come loose.
The solder connection must have been bad to begin with since the connector it used to be attached to looked almost shiny new. This was obviously a manual solder job. The reason why the connector showed intermittent contact earlier was due to the fact that the wires were hot glued into the connector housing.

First off, the remote totally works well. It does everything as expected. It can shoot on a timer, can shoot in intervals, and can shoot for a certain amount of time. It can also just be used as a remote shutter..

The first remote I got actually broke.. the tip of the plug separated from the rest of the plug when I pulled it out of the camera. This must have been defective because it broke far too easily..

Picture of broken tip here: [...]

So I sent a message to Arthur at Satechi customer support, who actually contacted me before this to make sure I received the remote in the first place.

He was very sympathetic, and told me they would replace the remote free of charge, as soon as they could. And they did!

So Kudos to Satechi for providing an excellent product backed by even better customer support. Not many companies are great like this.

Thank you Satechi, and to everyone who is reading this that is considering this remote, buy it now! Just be careful with it!! You will be very happy with it, and Satechi deserves your service.
