I am sort of new to photography...being a computer geek I "know enough to be a bit dangerous"

I have a 5D3 and want a good remote shutter release. I see there are pocket wizards and there are like 20 of them. There is some new stuff for the Canon....

I am NOT a profesional..so striking quality and price is important to me.

All suggestions are welcome!!

Thanks!

I am welcoming to be wrong here. What I want is to stand across the street or down the block and actuate the shutter of my camera....what do I need?

a setup like one of these looks perfect: http://www.pocketwizar​d.com …ls/remote_camer​a_trigger/ (external link)


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

I have a Vello RF release which is supposed to be good up to 300 feet. Haven't tested it from that far but it's worked well from from shorter distances. I've set the camera up on a tripod in the back yard to shoot birds at the feeder and tripped the shutter from in the house.

the cheapest - Yongnuo RF-602 or RF-603 can work as wireless flash or shutter triggers

Or, perhaps the most expensive: Canon WFT-E7A (not yet available, but coming soon) wireless file transmitter... It can communicate with your laptop, allowing you to change camera settings, use Live View, etc... Plus it will send the images right to your computer, too. Canon claims a 100 meter/328 ft. linked shooting range with it... or 150 meter/492 ft. wireless LAN (image file transmission only). We'll see... they do note these distances are "approximate". But, it's $850 US and not yet available. Hopefully it will be easier to set up than earlier versions of WFTs, but it's said to be future-compatible with planned camera models (all previous WFTs have been largely model specific, so you usually had to upgrade them at the same time that you upgraded cameras).
