Wireless camera remotes are fairly common these days but most offer only limited control over your DSLR or mirorrless camera.

That’s what happened to London-based photographer Sean Tucker, and his video below offers some great advice for the next time this happens to you.
Selfie stick haters rejoice: Here’s a 14-second tutorial that illustrates everything you need to know to take great self-portraits with your DSLR without using a selfie stick or other form of camera support. Of course you need to be in zero gravity so your camera will gently float in front of you while tripping the shutter with a remote trigger.
