2 out of 5 eggsVery cheap, but works

Pros: It works at short range and near the front of the camera

Cons: • No feedback as to whether the button is pressed (i.e. LED indicator light)
• Battery compartment likes to spontaneously open
• Range is limited (~ 3-5 feet), but cannot compare to OEM Nikon remote, so I don't know if it's typical

Other Thoughts: "It works, kind of" is the best thing I can say about this product. See my list of pros and cons.

Perhaps a cable release would be better, but you are then limited to the length of the cable. But, as I noted about the range, there may not be any difference and you can be behind the camera with a cable version.
