Wireless Remote Controllers with further enhanced convenience using radio transmission
Utilizing 2.4-GHz radio waves, the WR-1 and WR-R10/WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers widely expand the flexibility of remote control. Unlike remote controllers that use infrared rays, they enable remote controlling over long distances. You can employ them to release shutters, even if obstacles, such as trees, stand in the way. Driving AF by half-pressing the shutter-release button of the controller and continuous shooting by pressing the shutter-release button longer are available. Furthermore, with the capability to control multiple cameras, these controllers can be employed for a variety of shooting scenarios; you can shoot stills or movies* simultaneously using several cameras with different lenses attached or cameras positioned at different angles; if you divide cameras into groups and assign a channel to each, you can control each group independently and perform such operations as shooting stills with one group and recording movies* immediately after with a different group.
- *Movie recording is possible with the D4, D800 series, D610, D600, D7100 and D5200.

When one WR-1 is configured as a transmitter and another as a receiver, which is attached to the D7100, it is possible to view or change the camera settings*1 using the display of the transmitter. Utilizing radio waves, the communication range between WR-1 units is up to 120 m/394 ft*2. Fifteen channels are available. Besides remote control of a camera with a WR-1 (used as a receiver) attached, achieved by operation of another WR-1 (used as a transmitter) *3, there are various remote shooting options, such as: simultaneous release of shutters on several cameras; release of shutters on several cameras synchronized with a master camera that has a WR-1 attached*4; remote control of each group of cameras separately, and Interval Timer Photography. Remote shooting by combining the WR-1 with WR-R10/WR-T10 is also possible*3.
