Phottix Plato Review

First published on: Saturday, 21 March 2009

The Phottix Plato is a hybrid wireless / wired remote control that operates on radio frequency.

My review of the Phottix Plato covers its use with the Nikon D90, but the principles remain the same with any compatible DSLR (digital SLR camera).

An overview of the Phottix Plato is given in the video clip linked to below — just click on the thumbnail to view the footage in high quality mode on YouTube.
