JJC Multi-function timer remote shutter
Even though most mirror-less cameras have WiFi capabilities and can be controlled remotely via an app, I still prefer a dedicated remote trigger for long exposures and crucial landscape work. The reason is simple: phones have a short battery life and tend to shut down right at the moment when you need them to trigger your camera. A remote shutter like the JJC, on the other hand, uses 2 AAA batteries and will last for about two months of continuous shooting. It’s also easy to program the shutter time once you’ve calculated it, and even program in multiple consecutive exposures with a delay time.
Different camera manufacturers use different protocols for remotely operating this functionality, and often use a different USB connection. JJC makes their Multi-function timer remote shutter units for any brand of camera you can think of, so I’m sure yours is available too. I’ve tried three of these units: for Sigma, Sony, and Fuji cameras.
