Last year I purchased a wireless timer from Satechi for my Nikon D90. Since reliable and detailed reviews of Satechi products are scarce on the internet, I thought of writing one based on my experience.

Product Name

Satechi WTR-M Wireless Timer for Nikon D90

The build is rugged. It fits in the palm of your hand comfortably. The plastic feels good on the hand and the buttons are spaced perfectly for easy access with one hand.

Connection

The timer can be connected to the camera wirelessly and otherwise.

Wireless connection

For wireless connection, a receiver piece needs to be connected to the camera body which sits on the flash shoe. The receiver is powered by a CR2 Lithium battery. An on-off switch is provided to conserve battery.

Note : It is not necessary that the receiver has to sit in the flash shoe. It is suggested for ease of use.

Wired Connection

When it is not necessary to use the wireless feature – like for stop motion, Satechi has provided a cable that can be attached to the camera directly.

GPS port of the camera is used for establishing connection. It took me a while to discover the GPS port first time I tried to hook it into my camera 🙂

Battery

Two AA battery powers the transmitter. As already mentioned, a CR2 Lithium battery powers the receiver.

Verdict

Satechi timer is a sturdy reliable product and worth the money for all your wireless trigger needs.

A day after I received the product, I was surprised to see an email from them asking whether it is working as it should. I must say that was a nice touch to win me over.
