What Does Remote Capture Means When Talking About Photography?

In photography the terms ‘remote capture’ refers to the action of operating the camera’s shutter remotely, i.e. without physically depressing the shutter button on the camera. Remote capture can be achieved using either wired or wireless remote controls. Remotely capturing an image can be useful in a number of situations for example when taking a selfie where you don’t want to obviously reaching for the camera in the final image, or in situations which require a long exposure time; In this situation, with the camera mounted on a tripod operating the shutter button directly would introduce unwanted shake to an image, using remote capture eliminates this problem.
