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. Also great when using a tripod for macro shots.
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!)<br />But anyway, I was planning to take protraits and did not want to be tied down BEHIND the camera-especially with shooting kids.
