Summary: I love this remote switch. It meets all my needs; no complaints about the length of the cord. I flip my Canon live view screen to face forward, set the timer to a 10 second delay, step back to check the framing of my picture and press the button. I just took a self portrait.
Cons: The cord does not stay pinched in the notch on the remote so when it lets loose it sometimes gets tangled in the camera strap or tripod wands.
Excerpt: I had ordered a macro lens and knew from past experience that I would need this gadget. I had used the older type with the pushcable when I shot Olympuses. (Could even shoot off two cameras at once with my double. I was hip!
Summary: Nice small wired remote with convenient partial press feature to focus and the lock feature for time exposures. Only complaint is that an extension cord should be available for taking self portrates etc. Cord is limited length.
