Best remote for a Nikon Z9 mirrorless/ d850 ?
« on: June 06, 2022, 09:17:12 am »

A Wireless remote is a vital part of my equipment and today i use the Hahnel Capture to do the job.
However this unit is not very reliable anymore so i think of buying a new one or something else.

Has anybody has experience with Nikon's  own WR-R11a  remote system?
it is potentially less obtrusive and more reliable... also it takes the energy from the camera ... so it is smaller

would like to hear about possible other candidates as well ...

Try some Pocket wizards - can be had used for $60 or so and will work with either camera.

i just bought this one and it made me happy...
SMDV RFN-4s Kit    made in south Korea.
works just like the Nikon- ( receiver is small- attached directly to the 11pin port and gets power from the camera) and it is 1/3 of the nikon price- also it has a longer range

I use this one, too.  I suspend the transmitter around my neck on a lanyard for easy accessibility.

Have a look at the Foolography Unleashed  https://www.foolography.com/products/unleashed-18/

A great tiny device with a great range of features on the phone app.

Much more than a remote release.

Using your phone as a transmitter is too clumsy...and slow and big...
I already have a camranger and the hahnel Captur for the special things.
