Phottix Nikos Digital Timer Remote


The PHOTTIX NIKOS Digital Timer Remote is a digital timer designed to trigger a camera shutter with regular time intervals, featuring self-timer, interval timer, long-exposure timer, and exposure-count settings. The timer can be set anywhere from 1 second to 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds. The buttons can be operated with a single thumb. The LCD panel can also be illuminated. The remote has a stylish and ergonomic design, making it a pleasure to use. It has a large and bright LCD screen and bright backlight. The shutter release button on the remote is a two-stage button: half-pressing the button will cause the camera to focus, and full-pressing will trigger the camera's shutter.

The switch on the right-hand side of the PHOTTIX NIKOS remote has three positions:

  • Off - turns the timer off
  • On - enables timer functionality
  • B – starting bulb mode with timer


  • Self Timer:
    • This counts down the specified period before it starts taking any action (up to 99h 59m 59s). Used by itself, this provides functionality to take a single photo after a specified time period.
  • Interval Timer:
    • This will actuate the shutter repeatedly at the specified period (each interval can be up to 99h 59m 59s).
  • Long Exposure Timer:
    • If the camera is in Bulb mode, the long exposure timer will hold the shutter open for the specified period (up to 99h 59m 59s).
  • Number of Frames:
    • This specifies the number of shutter actuations that the PHOTTIX® NIKOS will perform once it is put into play mode (0-99).
