$5 Gadget: Neewer Wireless IR Remote Control Shutter Release ML-L3 For Nikon for $4.25

From the big things to the small. It’s the return of an ever-sprawling “$5 Gadget” post!

The new condition Neewer Wireless IR Remote Control Shutter Release ML-L3 for Nikon has trickled down to $4.25, with a limit of up to three units per customer, by Amazon itself where it averages 4 out of 5 based on almost 100 customer reviews.

There is a meta-catch however, this is an ADD-ON item, so you must place a $25+ order in order for Amazon’s shopping cart to let you buy it. The restriction applies to all customers, especially Prime members since the Add-ON program was created to counter the unconditional free 2-day shipping of Prime.
