    Any issue with using AAA NiMH cells in the WTR TX rather than AAA LR03 alkaline batteries.

    • A.

      The WTR remote takes either 1.5V or LR03 Alkaline AAA batteries. However, your rechargeable batteries should work as well.

    Why doesn't the status indicator light on the WTR RX turn on even with the battery installed?

    • A.

      The included CR2 lithium battery for the WTR RX is wrapped with a clear plastic that needs to be removed before inserting it into the device.

      Although the battery supplies power to the WTR RX, the shutter button on the device can still operate without the battery installed but will not respond to any signals transmitted from the WTR TX.

      The WTR can take an infinite number of shots. However, if specifiying a particular amount, only 1 - 399 can be specified. Any amount above 399 must be specified as 'infinite'.

    More than expected First off the shipping time was faster than quoted by 4 days. My Canon wired timer failed after 3 years at twice the cost. This device has done every thing I've asked of it and more. I don't get the no off switch complaint. The batteries last pretty long and if you are not using rechargeable batteries by now you should. I have not bought a battery for over 4 years. My uncle in the 1950s worked with Disney doing time lapse photography and for a lot less money I can now do more than he ever could.

    Easy operation, practical, works every time, takes small regular batteries. Just got this last week. It seems to do exactly what it is supposed to, no issues at all. Very practical with the wireless operation. Could have had an on/off switch on the transmitter, but the battery life is long and they are very easy to remove if I'm not gonna use it for a while. The receiver unit on the camera does have an on/off switch. Both the TX and RX unit I received takes two AAA batteries each.
    If a friend was looking for a remote, I'd recommend this one.

    works very well works very well with 5DIII, great flexibility in setting exposure time and interval, great range, very happy with it. No off switch on transmitter is the only negative, but so far battery seems to be holding quite well.

    Product Good - Manual Sucks The product seems to work. The problem is the manual is so bad that the customer is left to figure out much of the functions themselves. For example, there is nothing about the WTR-RX module in the manual, not even a mention of the battery it takes. There are also four DIP switches on each module, but no mention of their purpose or how to set them up. Even the text that is included is poor. The explanation of the basic components of the WTR-TX lists #2 as "Straps fixed deduction (available separately; use cell phone of other similar strap)" What the heck does that mean. I won't go into all the grammatical errors. It's a shame that such a good product has such poor documentation that the user will never be able to use it to it's maximum capabilities.

    Great Value The product is exactly what I expected it to be. It works as advertised. Easy to setup. Only real con is a lack of power buttons/switches on either unit.

    Nice remote, compact and light Just got the unit 3 days ago and have been testing it with my 5D Mk lll and old 5D too. Seems to work as advertized and love the fact that is radio frequency and not infrared light (do not need to be in sight of the receiving unit). There is no instruction for connecting the receiver and if you do not follow the right sequence, it may lock and stop working.
    Receiver and camera must be off (normal practice) before connecting the unit. Turn the power ON and wait until the light start blinking before turning the camera on. Not following that can disable the receiver.
    Will have to see about long term reliability. My Canon remote is over 10 years old and still work perfectly but is bulky and use infrared light (which is a bugger from time to time).

    Great and user friendly This is my first timer/delay device for my canon 5d mark ii. I'm very happy so far. I purchased it to use for time lapse photagraphy as well as remote exposures for macro and exposures where I want my shot completely still such as night shots for longer exposures. I didn't realize this would also come in handy for self photography of my family as I'm usually the one setting the self timer and running to be in the shot. With the remote - that charade is now over. I also love that it's really light and compact and was easy to fit in my camera case which already has several lenses and accessories. Overall thrilled so far.The lid on the remote unit didn't close tight and if it was a moving part would come open - but since it just sits there on the camera - I'm not worried about it. Otherwise I would have rated 5 stars.

    great but... Works as advertised with my Canon 5D mk3, but a bit odd that you can't turn off the remote as there's a off button on the trigger but can't seem to find one on the remote?

    Great Product. Highly recommended. First, the unit I ordered included a cord that allowed you to use the unit without the wireless capability. It looks like they've either decided not to talk about the cord (which is a great addition), or it is now not included with the unit.

    I suspect it IS being included since the FAQ includes a statement that the device can be used without batteries... if they are talking about the hand held portion, then clearly a way to connect it to the camera exists.

    This unit is so good, that when I dropped my in an unretrievable pool of slimy water I (almost) cried. I've just ordered another.

    I am a Night Photographer. Night Photography is SO much easier with a well thought out, functional intervalometer. I balked at spending $60 on this wireless intervalometer because my last wireless intervalometer Jenis J-C50D Wireless-Controller was $110 of useless.

    I'm certainly no stranger to Intervalometers. I have owned and reviewed at least a half dozen of them both for my own use on 3 different cameras and so that I can recommend units to our students at Star Circle Academy.

    This unit, is very well thought out and has everything I am looking for except one (minor) thing.

    Here is my list of desires for an intervalometer that I use at night:

    1. Easy to set/program.
    2. Long battery life (usually means AA or AAA batteries)
    3. Well built - battery covers stay put, sturdy, printed indicators don't easily smear or wear off, strain relief on cord.
    4. Has a light (not too bright) for reading and setting the display in the dark.
    5. The light stays on long enough to be useful.
    6. Has a small, visible LED indicating when it is shooting.
    7. Has an optional audible indicator that it's working
    8. Can be used in a variety of ways including a delay timer, interval timer, bulb-mode exposures.
    9. Connects well and securely with the camera.
    10. Can be set to take up to 399 exposures or "infinite".
    11. Can be used as a wired remote even when there is no battery.
    12. Has start/stop/run buttons separate and different from mode and setting buttons.
    13. Comes with a readable, clear instruction manual.
    14. Has indicators that clearly show what it is doing when running. I would like to know whether it is currently counting down, exposing, waiting between exposures and how many shots are remaining.
    15. Has an on/off switch to prevent the battery from dying while it rides around in my camera bag.

    This unit has ALL of the above except the on/off switch. The receiving unit does have an on/off switch, but not the hand held portion. I can forgive that oversight. This unit has a lock feature. I can "lock" the unit before putting it in my bag. That lock, however, doesn't deactivate the light. Most of the competing units do not have on/off switches either, the Canon TC80N3 Timer Remote Control (Canon branded remote), for example, doesn't.

    Hopefully you noticed item 11 - can be used even when there is no battery - and are wondering how a wireless remote can do that? There are two answers. 1. The receiver unit has a button and can be attached and used as a wired remote. Secondly - and this is VERY clever of them - the unit comes with a cord that turns the wireless remote into a corded one - you can have a fully function WIRED or WIRELESS remote. Brilliant! What is even more brilliant is that the plug that attached to the hand unit serves as a strain relief - many of my intervalometers have begun to separate the cable from the unit.

    The reference standard is the high priced Canon branded version but this unit beats that one easily. This unit, for example has a configurable audible alert and a wireless feature. The Canon branded unit has two things in its favor: it has a finger wheel for setting the time and the mode display has symbols that are easier to read in the dark than the "bars" that tell what mode you are in. In all other respects the units are similar enough that you won't be able to tell the difference except for the wireless part! :-)

    A competitor in the wireless intervalometer space is this unit: Studiohut WIRELESS Timer Remote Control Shutter - I don't own it, so can't comment. In fact I'm so delighted with the versatility of the Satechi unit I may never need to own another wireless unit.

    The wireless capability is a great value add. I tested its range by leaving it in my house and walking down the street. Every 5 paces I pressed the shutter button. I got at least 100 feet away before it stopped taking photos - and the unit was in my house, not out in the open. I also used the wireless to take group photos with me in them.

    I seldom am gleeful about a product. I am very happy about this one!
