This ready-to-solder kit makes an infra-red remote shutter release suitable for use with many digital SLR cameras. It’s also easy to set an interval so repeated pictures are taken at a regular interval - time-lapse.

It sends shutter release codes compatible with the following infra-red camera remote controls:

The translucent blue case has ready-machined holes for the power switch, the IR LED and the all-important “take a picture!” button. There’s also a red indicator LED that’s visible through the box, to let you know when a signal is sent (or in the case of longer intervals, a countdown to the signal too).

The battery is a standard CR2032 3v non-rechargable lithium battery. It’s capable of taking more than 250,000 pictures. It works to at least 8 metres in most conditions, and with more careful aiming has been used to around 11 metres.
