This review is from: Opteka RC-2 IR Infrared Remote Control for Nikon ML-L3
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)
Other Thoughts: "It works, kind of" is the best thing I can say about this product. See my list of pros and cons.
