The Clicker

This is perhaps the most silly and amusing thing I have for the camera; a remote shutter release. I got it today and let me tell you, nothing has amused me so much in a distressingly long time. I walked around my house trying to gauge how far away I can be to have it work and laughed like a fool every time it worked.
It's Christmas come early for the cam anyway, as I finally got my first tripod. Gasp! Horror! I too, am not sure how long I survived without one, but we'll see how I take to it. I have a general aversion to any kind of 'cheating' but I guess the tripod is generally viewed as morally upright. Unlike photoshop.
Off I go to take some night shots from far away from my camera!

I've had a tripod and a remote for a long time. It's how I took my large family photo at Thanksgiving. It's also better for night time photos because the tripod keeps the camera in place and using the remote means that you don't have to touch your camera which can cause movement. I've gotten nice photos of the moon that way.
