Remote shutter releases have long had a place in the camera bag of dedicated photographers. They're useful for setting off your camera without you having to touch it, or for setting your camera up near something that doesn't appreciate human activity – think wildlife, or the touchline at a busy sporting event.

Higher-end shutter remotes offer even handier tricks such as intervalometers, where you can set your camera to take pictures at a set rate over a period of time.
