Summary: This remote is very handy when you want steady camera pics. For example in the winter when your hands are cold which could make the camera shake a bit. Just put your camera on a tripod and insert the remote into the USB connection. Works great!
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. And female jack and male plug are micro sized so it is hard to find a compatable generic extension. The RC6 wireless remote is more convenient for longer distance control for camers which work with that device such as my Rebel T2i.
Summary: overall great product. it is versatile, compact, and very simple to use. the only drawback that i personally have ist the length of the cable. i would prefer to have at least another 12 to 18 inches.
Summary: I have had several episodes where the shutter lock gets stuck and the camera won't take a photo with the remote switch. Had to turn off camera, disconnect, cold boot. Pissed me off. Not sure why this happens.
Pros: Convenient. Easy to use. Nice locking mechanism.
Summary: This is a great product but it lacks an on-off switch so if you're not using it everyday, you have to take the batteries out. All kinds of uses - eg. taking group shots - set it to take 10 pics at 5 or 10 seconds apart and then just get in the pic and you don't have to run around to use the one shot timer on your camera.
Summary: It's a little hard to use in cold time. I went crazy with my Lowerpro gloves trying to shoot with it. Hand held is fine though. The cable is a little stiff. Is not easy to plug in but it's Canon design pointing toward. At night, outside on the tripod, it need a flashlight to plug it in.
