    Haha, aiyo what to do, beginner, everything also dont have ..... still have to decide on the flash (everybody tell me it is one of the top priority .... )

    Back to topic .... I think TS should just get those that are wireless and can at the same time be used as a wired shutter release ... no need to think mah ... one time investment ...

    lol, ya i get ur point. but currently i'm actually using a wireless one.. but 3rd party types. u can stand far from your camera though. in fact i tried standing like more than 5 meters behind the camera and its still working. probably thats the wonder of some of the 3rd party shutter releases. haa.

Hence, buy both!!

    For me, I'm not so vain so I can only go for wired type... Otherwise, timer function will do, set 10 sec and run like hell!

    that time my friend told me that there is a silver oxide cell for the camera shutter release button leh. after a while it will run out then cannot trigger the shutter already.

    i just opened my shutter cable release, wow, really got no battery.

    i'm going to use my shutter cable release from now on to delay the shutter release button battery death.

    I opened my cheapass MIC 3rd party one last night because the wire was giving me problems. Looked exactly the same, but with generous application of a certain yellow grease...

    mine is yongnuo, also third party MIC, from OP.

    it has been immersed in a reservoir for brief period when i forgot it was in my pocket. maybe that encounter washed the grease away. :P
