Works like a normal Nikon ML-L3 remote control, with a manual push button you can trigger the camera up to 10-15 meters. The maximum distance depends on the ambient light.
New function: keeping the push button pressed it is possible to shoot continuously with no pause.

Intervalometer : this function permits to shoot at pre-programmed intervals. Turn the remote control on, set the timer and the camera will be automatically triggered at regular intervals (the time between two shots is regulated with a rotary switch).
