Lots of options

ML, J&R
27 September 2010
  • Summary: Great for setting the timer to something other than the cameras standard timer setting(s). Offers much more stable tripod photography over direct shutter release. Lots if different options with this timer make it flexible, however sometimes tough to remember how the different combinations work. Great product overall, but a little pricey (although you do get what you pay for).
  • Pros: Lightweight, Reliable

Wish it had an on/off switch

  • Summary: I would recommend someone to purchase this product versus the ones made in Hong Kong. This at least comes with a warranty and you know what type of product you're getting when you go with Canon. I've purchased lenses before that weren't Canon and I swore from that point on that if I buy anything for my camera and it's available BY Canon, I would buy Canon.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Functional, Lightweight, Portable, Reliable, Small
  • Cons: No onoff switch, Pricy, Short cord

Always on - who cares

Canon4everBpraised, PriceGrabber
24 June 2009
  • Summary: You know the fact that it is always on when plugged in really doesn't matter; do you care that your digital wristwatch is always on?
  • Pros: Gives you 100 hours to establish an aliby prior to detona... er... shutter release.
  • Cons: All the functionality of a stopwatch at 10x the price. Canon seems to think their name has been dipped in gold.

Good but could be smaller

Abes of Maine

  • Summary: It does what it is supposed to do but the size could be smaller. I like hiking. I wish the size of this remote controller could be same as the one without timer so that it could be earier to be carried.
  • Pros: Reliable
  • Cons: Bulky

Much better than a plain tethered switch

23 March 2009
  • Summary: I'm a huge fan of long exposures and I've loved using plain tethered remotes on all my Canon cameras over the years (5D, 20D, 300D, A-1, AV-1, AE-1). This controller goes so far beyond a simple remote switch. I can't believe I've gone without this level of functionality up until now. All those long nights timing exposures by my watch are thing of the past!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: A tad expensive

Only buy it if you really need it.

StephMGII, B&H Photo

  • Summary: I use this product mostly for time lapse and long exposures. I love the time lapse feature and the controllability there is with the features. Also the back light is very handy. It's a little pricey and big. In addition having a wireless remote would be much better.
  • Pros: Controllability
  • Cons: Big, Corded, Expensive

nice smart camera controller

Nohr Photography, B&H Photo
3 February 2009
  • Summary: I got this mainly because I have always wanted to make some of those exposure sequences where flowers open, the sun sets, etc. This device will do a great job of that. I'll confess I haven't used it much yet, but I read the manual and experimented a bit, so I know what it can do. It is an excellent smart cable release. I wouldn't call it a remote control, the short cable means you won't get very "remote" from your camera.
  • Pros: Good Value, High Quality, Useful
  • Cons: Expensive

works like a charm

meshooter, B&H Photo
2 February 2009
  • Summary: I use the TC-80N3 primarily for time lapse and for that, it works flawlessly. The only problem, and it's a small gripe, is that there is no power switch. It does not seem to be affecting battery life, though, so it's not that big of a deal.
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: No power switch
