Wireless remote camera control has never been easier. Instead of using conventional infrared transmission, the new WR-R10 and WR-T10 communicate via radio for increased range.
Because radio transmission is used, communication is possible even with no direct line of sight between devices for use up to 66 feet (up to 164ft when using WR-R10 as a transmitter). These wireless remote control accessories also enable various operations such as autofocus, video recording, continuous shooting and quiet shutter-release shooting.
Use the WR-T10 as a transmitter, to trigger a single or multiple cameras with the WR-R10 attached. This permits capture of the same moment from multiple perspectives and with different lenses as a still and/or video.
Compatible with the following products: DX-D-SLR: D3100, D3200, D5100, D5200, D90, D7000, D7100, D300 series (D300 series - requires WR-A10 Adapter) FX-D-SLR: D600, D700, D800 series, D3 series, D4 (D700/D800 series, D3 series and D4 require the WR-A10 Adapter)
WR-T10 and WR-R10(s) have to be set to the same channel and paired in advance to achieve simultaneous release.
Note: Depending on the camera, there may be a limitation to the accessories that can be attached simultaneously with the WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller. Attempting to forcibly attach accessories can damage the camera or accessory.
Communication between WR-R10 units: Only available when master camera employs ten-pin remote terminal

This item is great for taking self- and family-portraits as well as detailed macro shots that require no shake. Too bad Nikon didn't build in a receiver like my previous D7000, but I guess with the major league D810, you have to pay to play. The box ships with six items - the wireless remote receiver, which goes into the adapter that in turn inserts into the camera's 10 pin remote terminal, the transmitter, two small straps for the receiver and transmitter, and a small carrying case. The planet-sized instruction sheet - you could learn many languages by copying it into a translation program - is a bit annoying, but when you find your language, is clearly written (at least for English, German and French languages that I read). With regards to the English instructions, the instructions were accurate with one important item that should be included: when you connect the receiver (WR-R10) into the adapter (WR-A10), you need to hear a small click. If you don't, then it won't work; I found that out after spending 30 minutes with Nikon customer support. Other than that, the setup is easy: once the receiver/adapter is inserted into the 10-pin terminal, set the receiver and transmitter to the same channel, turn the camera on, and simultaneously press the little grey buttons to pair the items. When the green-red lights blink quickly, they are paired and ready to go. Testing the unit afterwards went well, and I was able to remotely shoot pictures from a distance of 10 meters (33 feet), which is more than I expect I'll ever use the item. Apparently this can be used to control multiple cameras; I can't vouch for that feature, as I only wish I had the wealth to be able to afford that luxury. However, I did use it outside to take some macro shots with a Nikon 200 mm f4, and the results were great. In summary, it's expensive in comparison to what I used before, but it really works and, at the end of the day, I can worry about taking the shot, not about the equipment.
I use two of these for a two-camera setup, where one is in landscape and one is in portrait configuration. A press of the button and both cameras fire. Easy to use and setup.
Excellent remote shutter activation Easy set up Easy to use Highly recommended
I got my WR-x10 kit along with my brand new D800E about 2 weeks ago but hadn't had time to try it out. My old faithful ML-L3 doesn't work with the D800E but the x10 has several advantages over it: I don't have to stay "in sight" of the infrared, the x10 controls more than one camera and is flexible enough to control each group through a different channel. Also, for the D800E, it mimics the Fn button which was very helpful. The manual explains in very simple terms how to use the kit but it took me a while to figure out where to connect the WR-A10; I also found it cumbersome to have to screw it into the right place in the camera. A top notch camera like the D800/D800E should have a direct connection. Anyway, once I figured this out, the x10 set was very easy to pair and its operation does exactly what the manual says it does. My final opinion: too expensive to be so basic. But it's small, light and works fine so for field trips it's OK. Better than the ML-L3 that caught me standing in the pictures of some landscape shots...
