    These controllers are meant to cover a couple of meters (<5), not more. Otherwise chances are that you might affect other cameras as well. Use it if you need to avoid direct camera contact (avoiding camera shake) or just want to be in the picture as well without waiting 10s

    If I'm not wrong, this remote when depressed, it acts as the camera's shutter button, it'll auto-focus & when subject is in focus, camera will snap the photo as in like you were depressing the camera's shutter button. I shoot in manual mode.
    I'll pre-focus then use the remote.

    Just reading up on this today also. One more feature (that I need and it has) is the ability to use Bulb Mode by pressing once, and stop by another press.

    Probably because of less interference with sunlight.
