Summary: These are NOT genuine canon batteries! I have not tried them in my camera yet, so I don't know if they will work or not but frankly I don't want to risk it because they have a higher rating (1500 instead of 1125 and 10 instead of 7.2) Will be returning this kit.
Summary: I love the extra batteries, but the remote is terribly small(easy to lose) and it barely fits in it's case. Over asp I'm not impressed with the remotes size. I didn't get a chance to try it out tho. I'm hoping it works better than I think it will.
Summary: But I also use the remote when I have my camera set up for tripod shots where you don't want to touch the camera in order to reduce camera shake (fireworks, macro shots, landscapes, etc). When I am using these applications I don't want to wait 2 seconds for the shutter.
Summary: First off, it works with "Bulb" mode which is great for certain applications (see photo in images). Many other remotes I came across did not offer this. It also allows you to change a 2 second shutter delay or instantaneous.
Excerpt: It worked flawlessly right out of the box, and still actuated the shutter well beyond the listed distance limit. I got shots off between 37-39 feet away from the camera, after that it was too far away.This will come in very handy for self portraiture and long exposure photography.
