New Toy

My street photography often involves shooting from the hip, which has gotten harder to do now that I walk with a cane. So in order to be able to shoot with my left hand while holding the cane in my right, I got this little toy. It’s a wireless remote. The receiver sits on top of the camera in the hotshoe and the remote control goes in my pocket. An added benefit to this in the cold weather is that I don’t even have to take my hand out of my pocket to push the shutter button. I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but I’m planning to go¬†out shooting with it in the next day or so. Gotta love technology!

The little black box on the left is the receiver. It has two big LEDs on it that I have covered up with black tape.

Here it is mounted on my X100T, ready to go out shooting.
