Infared vs wired shutter remote?

I've been waiting for some sort of remote shutter for night shots. What are the pros and cons of each? What should I use? Is it reliable remote control when you have a drink?

The IR is less hassle. No cables, etc. other party needs to "see" the camera and works on batteries, which could you not just at the wrong time. Remote controls are reliable. The great advantage is that you do not have the feel of the camera when the picture has been made. Even on a tripod and the more if you put the camera right on a flat surface, touch the trigger may cause some shake. If the exact time the shutter is released is not so important that you also can use the timer instead of a remote release. For example, if you want to take the photo of the silhouette of a city at night is not important if it takes 10 seconds before or after the setting for the camera, and set self-timer. When the timer has run out of the chamber is constant absolute again. When an exact date for the release requires a remote control is necessary, course. In general, I regard a working cable connection more reliable than a wireless one (whether IR, Bluetooth, WiFi, mobile phone) but I guess with a camera at a distance the difference in reliability neglecta is more or less.
