Hi folks. Has anybody got one of these remote controls please?

If so, have you found an "English" manual as the one that came with it is just about indecipherable!

What I'm trying to do is to record a flower opening so need to take probably one shot every minute for starters but I just cannot work out the Timer setting for this controller!

If you type 'Pixel tw-283 manual' into google a couple of videos showing set up etc show in the results.

Yes Philh04 I duo know how to use a search engine and that link take one to the original spreadsheet ":manual:" that came with it - if you can understand it you're a better man than me Gungadin!

Sorry, I had assumed you didn't get the manual in English... I agree it is not the easiest of pieces of paper to understand.

I did buy one a while back when I mislaid my Canon Remote, however it is all packed away as we prepare to move house to the other side of the country, the first video that comes up explains some of the functions, or at least the interval shooting.

Cheers Phil, hope the move goes smoothly! We've only been down here in Devon a couple of years but love it!!

I found a vides, some American mumbling but it served its purpose. I'll play with it tonight.

I have sorted out the remote, very impressive considering the low cost, so now to play with it.

I consider this thread closed!

Um, maybe sorted out the actual programming, but it don't work! It takes the first picture, after the "Grinelay":, screen switches over to "interval" and counts down but when it gets to trigger time, nothing happens?
Luckily I have a Fuji X-T2 and have just discovered that it has a built in interval timer Tongue
