Neewer Wireless Shutter Release Review

Having a wireless remote shutter release is an important tool of the trade for all levels of photographers. The NEEWER Wireless Shutter Release GD-C1R makes it easier to take long exposures, close-ups (for macro photography), and continuous shooting for action. Current ~$20 on Amazon – Link)

img_0613I have had the Neewer wireless shutter release for over 2 years and it still works great. It’s small size allows me to easily carry it in my DSLR camera bag or pocket. This means it’s ready to be used when ever i need it. This sounds somewhat ridiculous but I know I have used it several times when it was unplanned and I simply would not have been able to get the shot without it.

The Neewer wireless shutter (B005LT2ENG) is made up of two parts; a transmitter or control, and a receiver. The receiver uses 2 AAA batteries which is great because they are a little less expensive than AA. The transmitter / controller uses a 23A battery which is smaller than a AAA.
