Not much to say here that hasn't been said. The RC1 does exactly what you think it does: triggers the shutter on my XT (and many other Canon cameras) remotely.

Two simple controls: a three position switch (off, immediate, 2 second delay) and a trigger. Set your camera to timer mode, point this little guy at the infrared sensor on the front of the camera, and click. That simple. I use it to trigger long exposure macros, and it works perfectly. It's also great for group shots that I want to appear in (use the 2 second delay).

Comes with a base that slides onto the camera strap, allowing it to be stored on the strap itself when not in use, then unclipped when you need it. I've had it for a year, left it on for months, and have yet to change the battery.

The ONLY improvement I could think of is if the system were radio frequency so that you didn't need to point it at the camera - but since the cameras themselves aren't set up that way, I can't ding it a star.

Great.
