    camera remotes

    oky dokey, on the continuing quest for more goodies, i feel i need a remote for the the nikon 5100.
    dont want a cable one so wireless, and if possible one that allows me to change shutter speed without touching the camera and tripod, but i feel that might be either way to expensive or just not available.
    i was looking at the hahnel giga t pro 2, but i like to get feed back from you guys at to what you use and like.
    cheers all

    I recently started using the hahnel gigabit pro 2, and I like it, but I don't think it will do what you want. I may be wrong (I have only used it a few times), but I think it will allow you to control the shutter speed from the remote only when in bulb setting, and then only for shutter speeds of 1 second or longer. For shorter shutter speeds, i think you have to control it manually from the camera. Perhaps someone with more experience can correct me if I am wrong.

    I have some friends with wireless remotes. Sometimes when we go out on photoshoots, one guy clicks his remote and multiple cameras go off! LOL!
