Let's take a look at a few reasons why for any photographer a camera remote is an essential piece of gear.
Ability to use Slow Shutter Speeds
As compared to what you can dial in with the camera settings for much longer exposures you can use it to fire the shutter which is one of the primary benefits of using camera accessories like camera remote.
This is because without using what's called Bulb Mode most cameras only allow you to slow the shutter to about 30 seconds. To minutes or even hours this allows you to extend the shutter.
Naturally, for minutes or hours you don't want to hold down the shutter button by standing there. You don't have to do so with a camera remote.
To fire the shutter and press it again to end the exposure you might just press the remote button depending on the type of remote you use.
For long exposures, still photos, self-portraits, time lapse videos, you can pre-program settings in Higher-end camera remotes. That means right from the Pulse app you can control things like shutter speed. And you can still have complete control by being up to 100 feet away from your camera since Pulse connects to your phone via Bluetooth. For Light Painting a Remote is Ideal
Light painting might be it if you're looking for a creative and fun photography adventure.
Painting is similar to what it sounds like.
You get your camera setup on a tripod select a dark location, use your remote to trigger the shutter by dialling in the settings you desire.
Then, with the light to create beautiful patterns you use a headlamp, a flashlight, glow sticks, even heck.
To get it done you don't need any help which is the beauty of doing light painting with a camera remote. In front of the camera take your place with your light source, Just dial in the desired settings and with your remote start and stop the exposure.
Having Candid Portraits
It's not that formal, the genuineness of a real moment captured by a camera is preferred and so posed portraits can't be great. As just like with shy subjects, you're removed from the situation your chances of capturing candid moments is enhanced by a camera remote.
Without having to constantly tell everyone to look at the camera and say cheese Imagine photographing your kid's birthday party. Instead, whenever you like you can fire the shutter by setting up your camera and get sweet candid shots.
When we see a person aiming a camera at us it’s just human nature to stiffen up and force a smile.
In favour of more genuine photos you can avoid that by using a remote. In the long-run these photos will be much more meaningful to you.
Besides, a camera remote allows you to be more involved in whatever activities might be going on and from behind the camera frees you to be out and.
