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.
Summary: This remote is very nice quality, it performs flawlessly. Notice that the cord is only 25" long, older photographers will recognize this as a pretty normal length cord. For me it's a little short so I decided to lengthen it by several feet.
I love it so much - Now I can't use my Camera with...
1 January 2007
Summary: I bought this as an accessory to my first DSLR Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. I love it so much as it prevented camera shacking while taking photos. I should have bought this at the same time I bought my Camera. I used the camera with out this in two my daughter's preschool events.
Summary: Everyone whose primary purpose for his/her DSLR is to take pictures of babies must know the need for a remote shutter release. This remote is a bit expensive compared to other generic devices that can be purchased at Ebay, but, look, it's genuine Canon. Much sturdier and slicker indeed.
Summary: This remote is the most simple remote out there. It only has one button and thus, anyone can use it without their brain. Some people say it's easy to break, however, I don't think that's the case because remote is just a tool for tripod photos. I don't think it will break unless you abuse it.
