At the same time Nikon announced the D5200’s Canadian availability, it also unveiled two optional wireless remote controllers, the WR-R10 and WR-T10.
When using these devices, the camera can be triggered remotely. This new wireless remote system operates from a radio signal rather than infrared light, increasing functionality and range. Now the camera can be triggered from up to 20 m (66 feet) away, and a direct line of sight is not necessary.
The remotes also enable the Bulb mode for long shutter applications, as well as functions of the camera that are affected by a half-press of the shutter, including the engagement of the AF system or starting and stopping video capture.
The WR-R10 transceiver can be connected to the accessory terminal of many Nikon DSLRs and HD-SLRs. For those cameras that feature a 10-pin terminal, the optional WR-A104 adapter can be fastened to allow use of the wireless remote controllers.
The WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controller is scheduled to be available in January at an MSRP of $79.95. The WR-R10 Wireless Remote Transceiver is scheduled to be available in January 2013 at an MSRP of $109.95.
