Most Liked Positive Review



Love this remote! It is the perfect size and works really great! No more running to get yourself in place for a group shot. This remote also minimizes movement from you when doing macro shots.

Canon RC-6 Remote

Works well, but you have to be in front of camera. Good when you want to be in the picture, not so good for taking pictures of wildlife. My camera has IR sensor only on front of camera - it would be better if camera had both front and rear facing sensors.

Good value


from Hickory, NC  -  Casual user

Works great with my EOS70D for self portrait taking. Worked flawlessly the first time.


It does what it needs to do


from Plainfield, IL  -  Professional

It does what it needs to do, and that is trigger the camera remotely.


Great remote


from West Haven, UT  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Snall very useful, but seems that it functions only from front of camera, would like it to be useful operating behind camera.


A "Must Have" Accessory


from Cherry Hill, NJ  -  Semi-Professional

Instructions are simple, easy to use. Exactly as described. All pros and no cons for this item.


Nice wireless remote!


from Somerville, NJ  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

It worked flawlessly right out of the box, and still actuated the shutter well beyond the listed distance limit. I got shots off between 37-39 feet away from the camera, after that it was too far away. This will come in very handy for self portraiture and long exposure photography. Just press the button and off you go. Excellent!


Great job from a little gizmo!


from Oberlin, OH  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is a great little remote for my Canon DSLR Sl1. It fits in one's hand without being noticed, so you can take a picture of yourself without seeing the remote. I've been very pleased with the ease of use and the small size. I highly recommend this product to people looking for a way to take pictures with themselves in the photos.


Excellent product


from casper, WY  -  Semi-Professional

I use this for selfies with friends/family, but also when taking pics of children and babies. It is not intimidating and gives more control over the pose situation. It is light weight, small/discreet and best of all, it works like a charm.




from Spring Hill, KS  -  Semi-Professional

It works. Don't expect wireless performance from it. You must be line-of-sight. Make sure your camera is compatible as it does not work on all Canon bodies.


Wireless remote


from Arkansas  -  Semi-Professional

Remote works as described and it was delivered on time




from Des Moines, IA  -  Semi-Professional

This device works as desired... Now that I have a 70D w/ touch screen & wifi/smartphone shutter release, I don't need it so much, but it works & will be a fine backup to my smartphone. :-)
