Totally worth it! – Digital Timer Remote Switch Trigger for Nikon D90/D5000 (2*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
It's WAY cheaper than the Nikon's one. It does exactly the same thing. You can program a delay, interval, duration, number of shots, etc. It even has a backlight, so you can see everything under no-light conditions. It's built is quite simple and mid-quality. Come with batteries, which are lasting very long. The cord is long enough. The cable seems very durable. Manual comes in english.
Cons:
It has no ON/OFF button, so it'll stay ON for ever, unless you take the batteries off. On the other hand, it doesn't seem to consume much power when ON. The timer is not as precise as a regular clock. After a few hours of shots, it'll be "off the time" by 1 or 2 seconds.
Other:
A totally worth product! Seems quite well built and will last for a very long time. Rigid plastic so wont break as it falls. Very clear digits. Not as pro as a Nikon, but does the same by a fraction of the price! Would buy it again and surely would recomend to a friend!
Bottomline:
Just buy it!
