Pixel LV-W1 Wireless Remote Control – See and shoot from a distance

Image

The LiveView function on digital SLRs has brought lots of very nifty gadgets, but this Pixel LV-W1 Wireless Remote Control seems, so far, to me to be the best of the bunch. The transmitter clips to the flash hot shoe and connects to the camera via the USB port. It then broadcasts the LiveView feed to the receiver which has 3″, 960×240 LCD screen. The transmitter can reach out to about 80m and you can fire the shutter or even do the half -press focus thing. Best of all, the battery on the receiver lasts for 8 hours, so you can really set it and forget for remote photography. Works with Canon and Nikon. The only prices I can find seem to be on ebay from Poland for around US$335/£215, so caveat emptor kiddies.

1. LV-W1 image transmit is using 2.4GHz frequency channel, 3 specific channels.
2. Shutter control is using 433MHz frequency channel (available to use another frequency channel). 3 specific channels.
3. Operating distance range is up to 80M.
4. The display is protected by coating; it’s not easy to get scratch

    Nice gadget. But "works with Canon" is only true for older, discontinued models. Canon dropped live view from their current models.

    • According to Wikipedia, the 550D, the 5D Mark II, the 1D Mark IV and the 7D all have LiveView. Aren't they the 4 most recent Canon dSLRS?

  • For USD335, it is a little bit expensive I think. But anyway, still a good product.
