hey everyone, long story short, I lost my remote for my camera. So now I am in the market for a new one. If you have any recommendations please share. I am trying to not spend as much as possible, but I will pay for quality if it is absolutely necessary. Maybe even the time lapse one? Or even just a simple shorter one so I can take long exposures. Thank you very much

Best remote I've used (I have and prefer the wireless, which can be used wired, too).

Sorry for my ignorance, to use these you would set the camera to "bulb" mode and then trusting the remote to correctly pulse the trigger signal, right? It looks really neat and something I might want to pick up.

Hmm, I am looking to see what options are out there for wireless.

Go with the wireless Shutterboss. It's an expensive remote at first, but the nice thing is you just have to replace the cable (under $10, I think) when you get a new camera that does not accept the sub-mini connection. And you'll already know how to use the remote and not have to learn a new one.

The UI is good, ergonomics are nice, range is more than adequate (for my purposes).

I'll second this. I got one for my assorted Canons, with the N3 connector. Now I'm photographing a lot for a museum and using their Nikon; for around $7.95 I can use the remote on that too (wired or wireless).
