    I would like to buy a wireless remote shutter release for my Nikon D300s but having being confused by the various options on Amazon etc with both good reviews and horror stories of various models, I don't know what to go for! Sad

    Any ideas from you guys out there in the real world?

    Thanks.

    Dave

    I have the Hahnel Combi TF for my 7D which can act as a remote camera release or a wireless flash trigger and so far it has not failed and it is great for macro work. After buying a second flash, I could have bought a second Hahnel receiver but it was 5 more to buy a 4-receiver Yongnuo RF-602 kit - this is due to arrive in the next couple of day but all reviews are good.

    I use these Yongnuo triggers on my Canon 60D, well the Canon version, they are really cheap.

    It does not specify it works with the D300s, but my assumption would be that it would support all Nikon. Not being a Nikon user I could be wrong.

    You can buy more of them as well as they support Off Camera flash which was I mainly use mine for.

    The Yongnuo works fine on my Nikon D800 - make sure you get the correct lead.

    I'm impressed with them too. I have 4 of them which I primarily use as Flash Triggers to run 3 external Flash Guns, one of them is a YongNuo as well.

    I do also use them as a wireless shutter release when required, and they work brilliantly.

    I use Sanyo Eneloop AAA batteries in mine and they last ages before requiring a recharge.
