Most Liked Positive Review

 

Simple and works well

Simple to use and very uncomplicated. Only trick is that you are limited to the timer mechanism which is how it is set off (rather than being able to take the photo the instant you push the button...)

VS

Most Liked Negative Review

 

To small distance and to long duration

It is OK, but the distance to take a self picture is too small. Duration between the switch and the actual picture by camera is also too long.

Great Remote

By

What a great little remote - and ease of use is a no brainer. Change a setting and viola! I love the ability to add to a keychain too.

For Great Steady Shots Try The RC-5

By

from Houston Texas  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I Use the RC-5 for self included photos, vacation shots, parties and family reunions. The RC-5 Gives that steady shot necessary for that all imoprtant shot when mounted on your tripod.(yes even with that fast shutter speed you can loose a shot) with the slighest movement,especially when you use that powerful zoom it is easy to blur a shot. For the price you will never regret using this great product by Canon

Shopper  Can you take picture with this camera remotely from computer? Or how it works ?
JOHN T  The Canon RC-5 is an infrared-based remote control. I used it at Yellowstone Park to include myself in the picture. You have to set the camera properly so that you remote-control the camera.
Douglas G  Will the RC-5 work with a Canon 60D model Camera?
