A remote switch is vital in eliminating blur in what may have been an excellent photograph. A must have tool when shooting in low light or long exposures.

Let's get the "negatives" out of the way first. I put the quotations there because this piece of equipment is like what? [$]? It's job is to activate the shutter remotely so you don't have to worry about camera shake so long as you have a good tripod. It does that. It's great, especially for the price. But let's see what someone who just had a really bad day at work who hates life could possibly find wrong with this wonderful, affordable piece of equipment. I got this a month or two ago, so I can't say anything about durability yet. The cord is a little short if you want to do self portraits with a 55-250mm so Narcissus may want to spend the extra dough on him/herself for the extension. I can also see where someone with impaired dexterity could accidentally lock the shutter (it slides to a locked position for longer or continuous fire exposures by fully depressing the button and sliding your thumb forward) but honestly, you'd have to get a cramp for that to happen unintentionally and so long as you're not shooting BULB, you will just end up with a few extra shots. I will note, this has not happened to me and I don't see how it could be a recurring issue. Those measly issues out of the way, this thing is a must for low light or high f/number landscapes especially if your tripod did not cost you $10,000,000. I am adamant on manual focus so don't take me for an authority, but I did do a few shots with the auto focus and saw no impairment of the function. It is easy to use; plug and play. I have tugged accidentally on the cord and it did not rip out or contribute any damage to either the cord or the camera. Unless you are a cyborg with superhuman strength which you have no control over, I don't see this being an easily damaged piece of equipment. It stores nicely. I lived half my life on a sailboat and do intern work for an architect, so believe me when I say I like integrated things. I've tried writing a description of the way this thing facilitates wrapping the cord around the body of the remote for ease of storage, but it keeps coming out confusing. Suffice to say Cannon thought about it. It's nothing special, but it is definitely cool and more than I expected; a pleasant surprise. You'll see what I mean when/if you get it.

I bought this for use with my Rebel XT (350D) and it's been great. When mounted on a tripod, this remote helps completely get ride of any camera shake, even that caused by simply pressing the on camera shutter button. So far I've used it to shoot models, cars, and scenery and it's paid for itself. Great remote for the money.Cable is just the right length. Multi-function button is perfect to get AE/AF lock and then take the picture. Only down side is I always reach for the wrong part of the remote - they put the button on the side where the wire comes out so that when it dangles from your camera, the button is already on top; but I always try to correct for where I think the button should be (so by making it more ergonomic they made it seem backwards). I should get used to this over time though.I prefer this to my wireless RC-1 which only gets use for self portrait work.

I purchased this to take low light photos with my G-11 and it works just fine but I have a couple comments. I gave it 4 stars only because of my comments below. As far as reliability it gets 5 stars.I didn't realize how small this was, when I got it I was very surprised. I have small hands and it is even a bit hard for me to hold onto. But what is good about the size is that it takes up almost no room in the small bag I use for the G-11.One nice thing is the way Canon has come up with a way to store the cord by wrapping it around the handle and putting the plug in a small hole in the base of the unit. They put grooves in the handle that the wraps of the cord fit into so it doesn't slip off the plastic of the handle but the grooves don't make it any easier to hold onto.A couple gripes about remote release(s). I have the larger one (TC-80N3) for my Mark III and 7D that has a timer in it for time lapse and other functions. Both are very nice but I wish Canon would quit making them so smooth. I find them both to be very hard to hold onto because they use such smooth plastic for the cases, especially if you are shooting outside and need to wear gloves, even thin ones.The second thing I find very frustrating is that the shutter release buttons (on both the RS-60E3 and the TC-80N3) are very hard to locate by touch. They are dead flat even with the body of the release. I know this is so you don't accidently trip the shutter but I would bet that 99 percent of the time this would never happen. I would rather trip an extra shot than miss a good shot because I was groping for the release button.I do a lot of wildlife photography and use the remote releases while shooting from a tripod while looking through viewfinder or using Live View. If you try to find the release button without looking at the release itself the release button it is almost impossible to find. It is even harder yet with gloves on. What I did as a work around is to use a small felt stick on cabinet door bumper that you can find at Walmart, if you don't already have a pack around the house, they are very cheap. I stuck one on the release button of each remote so I can locate it with my thumb without looking. The felt bumpers are about 1/4 inch round and stick up about 1/8 of an inch and it make finding them by touch very easy.Other than being to slippery and hard to locate the release buttons by touch they both work very well.

This is great for fireworks, then I used it for some product photography in the studio, then outside for long night exposures (3 minutes +) The lock down button is a must, and works great.

Joseph Espina says...

VERY VERY GOOD PIECE OF DIGITAL REBEL EQUIPMENT, IF YOU DO NOT REQUIRE A WIRELESS TYPE OF CANON DIGITAL PHOTO SYSTEM.

George Sucat says...

Remote switch works as advertised. The only problem I had was while shooting long exposures of fireworks, I accidently slid the shutter release lock button partially into place and one exposure ran way to long before I realized shutter was locked open. This was primarily user error but product could have been designed in such a way to make release lock more of a positive motion instead of one that could be triggered accidently. A longer cable would also have been appreciated, perhaps 3 ft instead of 2 ft.

I contemplated purchasing an RF model remote but went ahead with the "wired" model. It works great for my applications. I tend to shake more and more as I get older and even with a medium grade tri-pod I have difficulty getting the shot I want sometimes. I have started photographing my local population of birds to identify them. I can set up my gear, get everything in focus and adjusted and just use the remote to "snap" the shot and it works great. A longer cord would be useful but it would be more to store as well. You might be able to locate an "extension" cable but I'm not sure a standard "stereo" 2.5mm jack would work.
