You set the shutter to timer in the Q menu, take the plastic from under the battery of the remote, point it at the IR sensor, on the front of the camera, push the button. The remote has a switch on the side, to switch to time delay

Sounds like a piece of cake... Cheers

Triiggertrap looks interesting, would have been nice if it worked via wifi instead of dongle tethered

I agree. Let's say I want to do night-time photography, it would certainly be better to leave the phone in the house, than on a balcony or patio.
On the flip side, I was so happy with our family photos. I clapped and a second later, it takes the picture. It's not instantaneous on the clap, so the delay gives you a chance to put your hands in position..
I used this for ebay photos... setup my lightbox and switched items in and out.. simple knock or clap.. wallah next item.

Just picked up Triggertrap; being shipped out soon. Pretty excited to play around with it - I was already messing around with the WiFi across two devices. Should come in handy...

The problem with the IR remotes is that you have too face the camera. You need a N3 connector which goes into the socket on the camera side.
There are a lot of simple releases that enable you to do the double press required, ie to focus and then shoot.
For versatility the Hannel Giga II is good, in that it has the ability to be used directly if battery is flat, or as a radio control. You can set it to take multiple shots, for example if you are using bracketing, or to do a long shutter press, or shoot every x seconds/mins/hours etc. Its one failing is that it turns its transmitter off after a minute unless you set it do do other things, which is a pain.

According to a short video I just watched, there is WiFi shutter release.

Yes. I have trigger trap. To use the wifi, you need two smart devices. I use my iphone attached to camera with wifi feature in the app turned on. I then trigger it wirelessly with my iPad using the app

If you are techie in nature, you can get full remote access via live view using a tplink mr3040 pocket router, and the dslrcontroller app. Not very expensive, only a fraction of the cost of the camranger.
