    Powerful toolWhy would you want to buy this product? 1.)Remote shutter release - that can be 30 feet away with the Canon extension cable. Photograph birds in the nest. Buy the extension cable – yes it cost about $70 but, if you do this kind of photography you will need it.2.)Remote timer – delay the shutter from 1 second to 99 hours. Photograph the moon's phases over time or anything with a cycle time. Combine this function with exposure count to have more capability.3.)Interval timer – photograph a flower bloom opening –Take a photo every X seconds for days, great for time laps photography. 1 second to 99 hours with or without limits on the number of exposures.4.)Long exposure – take a 15 min exposure of a night scene, etc. - 1 second to 99 hours.5.)Set exposure count – combine this function with other functions above to limit the number of exposures taken. A Zero value = no limits on the number of exposures taken.Some reviews have complained that this tool does not have an on /off switch. You do not need an on / off switch. The battery life with this device on 24 hours a day is over three years. Does your watch need a on / off switch?Others have stated that it is limited to 99 exposures, not true. "... set to 00 (blank setting) the number of time interval shooting will be unlimited." This product works great, gives you many options to photograph special subjects, is light weight, has a night light for the display and allows you to take a photo anytime by pressing the remote shutter release. You can start or stop any function by pressing the start / stop button. Yes the buttons are small, but it works fine for me.

    I have just killed my third TC-80N3 and feel the need, finally, to review this piece of equipment.The timer remote is great functionally. It does everything you could need it to do. The backlight is effective, all the controls work fine, it is reliable and does what it is supposed to.The problem is that this is now, apparently, a [$] item. I think it was closer to 120 the last time I bought one. Let me say this simply: it's not worth it. The problem with this unit is that, eventually, the cord on the timer remote end pulls out. It has happened to all 3 of my TC-80N3's that I have owned. On the last one, I actually taped the connection to the remote as soon as I took it out of the box to prevent this from happening. It helped, but finally after maybe a year and a half or two years it has pulled out again.I use the timer remote for almost every shot I take, so I am definitely a heavy user. However, for [$], the knockoffs of which sell for 20 bucks, this thing should be more durable. Use braided wire, improve the strain relief on the remote end. Having this thing fail three time for the same reason every time is not acceptable.I would advise anyone buying this to tape or otherwise try to mitigate the issues on the remote end BEFORE they become a problem.For me, I have finally had it and will be buying the knockoffs. For 20, or even 50, bucks I can afford to have a backup which will be nice. The TC-80N3 is a good piece of gear for 50 bucks. For [$] it is a tremendous ripoff and severely lacking in quality.

      Comments about Canon Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3:

      I purchased this as a remote controller for a Canon 5D Mark III. It provides the functionality I care about: a remote trigger that I can use to eliminate camera shake and a timer I can use for long exposures. It comes with a CR-232 battery. Once you put the battery in the remote, it stays on (like a digital watch). Canon claims the battery lasts 3 years. The cord that connnects the trigger to the camera is short, only 2.6 feet, but it hasn't proved to be a problem for me. I take one star off for cost; it does seem a bit pricey given that it's not wireless, and the cord is shortish. Final word: if you are thinking of using a 3rd party trigger, I've had some trouble with the Vello brand for a different camera (70D, at one point, the camera's LCD stopped displaying whenever the Vello trigger was connected), so I chose to go with the Canon brand with the 5D Mark III, higher cost and all.

        Purchased primarily for timed long exposures. Does the job well. Only drawback is illuminated digital display is very small and thus hard to read. I used at night.

        Purchasing experience from B&H was exemplary as usual and delivery was fast.

            Does everything I can want out of an attached remote. Agree with other reviews I've read about concerns with the life/quality of the 3 pin attachment. It seems a little flimsy but expect with a little care when plugging in/out it should be OK. Otherwise an excellent addition to your accessories.

            Comments about Canon Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3:

            With a long background in large format film photography, I'm no stranger to the T (time) setting on classic lenses. In fact I carry a sports stopwatch for my not-infrequent 10+ second exposures on 4"x5" film. With T you click the shutter once to open and then click again to close.My modern Canon 5D ii digital cameras are way ahead in many features but I do miss T. I can expose up to 30 seconds on Manual but for night shoots and special effects with a 10 stop neutral density filter there is no substitute for T. Instead you have to set the camera to B (bulb) and hold the shutter open, without jiggling the camera, for long exposure. Well, there is a substitute, for us Canon shooters: the TC-80N3 Timer Remote. It serves the same basic purpose as my basic RS-80N3 cable release. But it also lets me extend exposure times from seconds to days - hands off, with no risk of camera movement. Way beyond that, the TC-80N3 provides interval exposures, time-lapse, and much more. I could have saved some money with a non-OEM brand but I prefer to trust Canon gear.

            I don't see why this minimal device couldn't be half the price. It works fine, but for > $ one would think it would have a power switch. You have to take the battery out. However, I've left mine continuously running for several weeks now and the battery hasn't died yet.

                  I use this remote all the time. I enjoy night photography and this remote is the perfect accessory. It may be a bit over kill for some people, but I like having the programmable aspect. I can set precise times for exposures rather than just using a cable release and a timer. There are a lot of setting combinations as well, almost too many. I think this is what took me the most time to get comfortable using. With a little practice though, it becomes easy to navigate. Battery life is amazing too, I am still using the original battery after about four years! The one thing that bothers me though, is the back lit display. The buttons aren't back lit! I need to use a lite to see the buttons in the dark. Not a deal breaker, just a bit of an over site by Canon.

                    I use the TC-80N3 mainly for time lapse photography. I've only had it a couple weeks, but my initial findings (about ten hours of use) point to a solid product, much better than the off-brand remote trigger I have that has no intervalometer. Sometimes the trigger will swing around on the cord, but a little velcro ought to take care of that. It's easy to understand, set up and use.

                      Very reliable time lapse remote. The cable could be a bit longer - it tends to dangle off cameras on a tripod. Tape has always solved the problem.

                      N3 connector is mostly metal, so fit is snug and reliable, unlike the cheaper plastic clones.

                      I love this remote. If you want to take time lapse photos this is the tool you need. It was recommended to me by a pro and he did not steer me wrong. This remote is a must in my camera bag.

                        Comments about Canon Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3:

                        The TC-80N3 offers about 70% of the camera control features that the CamRanger has, but costs less than half and is much faster to setup.Since most of my camera control applications are related to Time Lapse, I am happy with the faster TC-80N3 setup (basically - setup is done within seconds). The only major feature that I use that the CamRanger has and the TC-80N3 does not have is: Focus-Stepping. If anyone from Canon reads these reviews, please note that Focus-Stepping is great for building high depth-of-field Macro images - if you add that feature to the TC-80N3 you'll intrigue a whole new class of photographer.
