the better choice

I had an off-brand version of this and it worked OK for about 3 months. Then (the off-brand) started accepting only the half press to focus but not the full press for shutter release. The Canon version is working very well although I have not had it as long as the off-brand version yet. The construction of the Canon is better. Better cable, better connection point.

I had an off-brand version of this and it worked OK for about 3 months. Then (the off-brand) started accepting only the half press to focus but not the full press for shutter release. The Canon version is working very well although I have not had it as long as the off-brand version yet. The construction of the Canon is better. Better cable, better connection point. I do find that I mistakenly tend to slip the button into the forward, locked, position if not careful. That results in multiple exposures being fired until you figure out what you are doing wrong and slip the button back to unlocked. Another minor point is that the cable connects at a right angle such that the cable itself points forward toward the lens. This would be a good direction if you are standing in front of the camera to photograph yourself. Most of the time I am behind the camera and I want the cable coming back towards me. Not a big problem though. One other item is that it doesn't have a built in clip or other method to help attach it to a strap, the camera, or whatever else when you aren't using it. This means that it tends to dangle a lot and might put added stress on the connection point. I could probably rig something up that would let me clip it onto whatever else is in the vicinity. Overall, it seems to be very good, and probably a good idea to get this rather than an off brand.

Hard to remove

I have small fingers and still having difficulty in removing this remote switch from my DSLR. I think the locking mechanism is not easy and simple to operate. But it's just me.

Great product. I prefer the corded releases so I can get behind the camera or off to the side and this is perfect!

Bought It Used - Looks Like New

By

from Acton, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I bought this remote switch used and you can not tell the difference from a new one. Adorama's E+ rating is a true representation of the actual condition of a previously used unit and that is why I continue to do business with Adorama, because they can be trusted

Secure Connection

By

from Tulsa, OK  -  Semi-Professional

I had been using a 3rd Party remote, but was continually frustrated by losing the connection. Anytime I removed the camera from the tripod mount to relocate, or sometimes without apparent reason the connection would loosen to the point that it was not operating...even if it seemed to still be in place. The Canon model does NOT come loose. And, if for no other reason, that would be enough of a difference to choose this unit. In all aspects, it performs as I expect. I would definitely recommend this unit!

Perfect

from Nashville, Tn  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I paid more to get the Canon version as opposed to less expensive remotes available on the Internet. As expected, the Canon remote is well made and works flawlessly.
