Summary: What is there to say? It is a Canon accessory for a Canon camera. I like to stick with the same brands to ensure the quality of production and the RS60 E3 delivers. It provides the same function as a shutter release cables that are used for film slr's--except in this case, it is called a remote switch. I purchased this item mainly for night photography to prevent camera shake when mounted on a tripod.
Summary: The switch is easy to install on and remove from the camera. It functions well. It is well designed; the shape makes it easy to hold. The trigger button works smoothly. I especially like that it's designed for the cable to be wound around the body of the switch and cable stores into the notches to keep it wound. There's also a storage location for the plug. Good design.
Summary: The Canon Remote Switch RS60 E3 was effective in eliminating camera shake during the wedding shoot I needed it for, however, a longer cord would have made it MUCH more convenient to use. It arrived in less time than expected, and continues to perform well.
Summary: This item works with the Entry level DSLR cameras like Canon Rebel T2i, XT, XTi, XSi, XS, T1i, EOS 550D/1000D/450D/400D/350D/300D but not all EOS cameras. The product is not for all EOS family of cameras - as mentioned in the description. This is misleading at first for a beginner. This will NOT work with Canon EOS 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 5D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 7D, 1D, 1Ds Mark II, III, IV cameras. These cameras have the same Shutter release slot Canon RS-80N3.
Summary: I was buying this as a button to help me to start/stop video recording. It doesn't work for that, it helps on the focusing (60d over here) when pressed halfway, but all the way down it takes a picture and it doesn't record. As no one posted something about video recording I suppose that I would give it a shot, but no It doesn't work for that if anyone was planning using it for that purpose.
Summary: I just got this cable release last night for my EOS Rebel T2i. The first thing I did was open it up and plug it in. I only used it in the house but it seems to work very well. It also has a slide lock to lock the button for the bulb open. I like this because when it's cold at night and I'm shivering I don't have to worry about accidentally releasing pressure from the button. I'm looking forward to trying this out one night on stars or fireworks.
Summary: This is the best deal from Canon that I made. I have a Canon Rebel T3i and do a lot of close up photography and this accompanied with a Tripod gives me some of my best results. The cost was minimal for the results I get. Four Stars.....
