Default *twitch* Satechi MTR-M Timer Remote Control

Satechi MTR-M Timer Remote Control for Nikon D90, D600, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100, D7000 SLR Cameras

OMG, this manual is horrible!! Here's just a sample:

"When the shutter opens, focus and the release indicator Lianghong Deng every one second camera issues a beep." WHAT?!

Then there are the humorous ones: "Should you notice smoke coming from this device, take it to an authorized dealer, taking care to avoid burns." Um, ok. If it's THAT hot, I'm not carrying it to a dealer, haha.

The flow chart for setting the timer made me turn my head sideways and I have a degree in Nuclear Medicine.

"Timer count-down (package so display panels,focus and the release of the indicator light and beep). Continuse during manual release." What!? *bangs head*

"Please note that the timer is less accurate than most watches or household clocks." Alrighty then.

On the inside of the back cover, there's a nice drawing of all of the components, nicely numbered. Unfortunately, there is no legend to accompany it.

I guess it's just going to be trial and error...

Google translate in action!



Sorry, that should be:



I'm sure you can figure it out. Just make notes and write up your own manual when you finish in case you forget something before you use it again.
