Wireless Shutter Release Remote for Canon EOS, Rebel

1 rating: 4.0
A product

Taking pictures remotely is even easier with a wireless shutter release, with a range of approximately 16 feet (4.8 meters).  Mount your camera and choose "delayed remote" or "quick response remote" from your camera's control panel display. … see full wiki

1 review about Wireless Shutter Release Remote for Canon...

It does what it's meant to do

I just got this remote control a couple of weeks back, and so far I am pretty satisfied with it. The shipment was prompt and it arrived even faster than some of the Amazon's own products. I am using it with Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi. I chose it over some alternative products due to its compact size which comes in handy when lugging around a whole bunch of camera add-ons. I am also extremely happy with the incredibly competitive price. I only have a couple of problems with it:

1. The user-instruction sheet is not very written and its not entirely clear on a couple of crucial steps in the setup. It would have been more useful to have something that explains the setup in some detail with each one of the Canon products for which it's meant to be used.

2. The range of the remote is rather limited. I have not measured it exactly, but it seems that it doesn't work beyond 15 feet away.

Here is a simple set-up procedure that worked for me:

1. Turn on the camera.

2. Press the "Drive mode" menu button. This is the same button as the left arrow on my camera.

3. Toggle between different settings using the left and right arrows.

4. Make sure that the "Self-timer/Remote control" option is highlighted.

5. Press the set button.

6. You are ready to roll. Point the remote to the camera (from the front of the camera) and press either the upper "S" button (for immediate shooting) or the "2S" button (for 2 seconds delayed shooting) buttons.

From what I understand, the other buttons are meant to be used with Canon's point-and-shoot cameras. "S" is for shooting, and "W" and "T" are for zooming out/in. They will not work with Canon's DSLR cameras.
