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: 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...

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.
