Excerpt: I bought this to use with my 7D because the Vello wireless remote I was using kept locking up in constant firing mode. I expected a Canon product to be better. I read mixed reviews on the RC-6 but thought I'd give it a try. Here're the facts: 1. You must have the remote in front of the camera 2.
Excerpt: Works well, but you have to be in front of camera. Good when you want to be in the picture, not so good for taking pictures of wildlife. My camera has IR sensor only on front of camera - it would be better if camera had both front and rear facing sensors.
Summary: Got delivery pretty quickly. It works but the range of the remote is limited. Outside on a sunny day, it's practically useless. I expect it will perform much better indoors where the IR sensor on the camera is not blinded with light. Still a very nice gadget for the price.
