The compact Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 with a 2.6'/80cm cable is a remote shutter release which is designed to prevent camera shake for super telephoto shots, macro photography and bulb exposures. Handy for taking pictures of subjects that are difficult to approach, or to minimize vibration for close-ups and time exposure.

The Remote Switch works just like a shutter button, enabling halfway or complete pressing. It also has a shutter-release lock. With the EOS-3's Custom Function No. 12 (mirror lockup), camera shake can be further reduced.

Compatible with EOS-3, 1v HS/1v, 1D-series, 1Ds-series, 5D-series, 6D-series 7D, D30, D60, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D and 50D.

Note: Not compatible with the EOS Rebel series, EOS 60D or the 70D.

Note: Only compatible in still mode. Will not trigger the camera in video mode.

When my Canon TC-80N3 timer remote suddenly died recently I decided to replace it with this timerless RS-80N3. I did this because in 5 years of heavy professional use I had never once used the timer function of the original, far more expensive, TC-80N3.

Comments have been made in other reviews about the construction of the RS. It's virtually the same as the far more expensive TC-80N3, less the timer. Same durability. The plug locks onto the camera until you tug on the locking collar; it's simple and very effective. Other inexpensive third party remote releases don't have this locking plug. This feature should certainly be one of the main incentives to choose the Canon-made RS-80N3 over similarly priced third party alternatives.

Remote switch is better than none

I like this, it is simple & does the job without spending a few hundred dollard for the wireless version. But...They really need to make this cord 5ft long. 2.6 ft does not allow me to set up the camera and place a chair nearby waiting for the right moment. It is difficult to use while waiting because your arm is held at length.

    I bought a cheap off-brand from B&H and it did not work after a few times using it so had to buy the Canon. Don't buy a cheap one.

      Essential

      By Lawrence G

      from Oak Park, MI

      Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

      I use this to get the sharpest possible images from my tripod for shooting buildings and head shots. This eliminates shake from pressing the button on camera. The pressure sensitive button is high quality and works just like the one on the camera. I've only had it for a short time but the piece seems durable. I would highly recommend this product for its usefulness and low expense to any photographer, amateur or professional.

          Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

          I wanted to be able to get some family pic with me in them which is why I ordered this. The ford is a little short for the distance I'd like to photograph, but it will work with my wide angle. I can also use it with a slow shutter speed and avoid blur, so it definitely is a good addition to my gear.

              I upgraded from a T3 to a 7D Mark 2 and the old remote switch didn't fit! I like to experiment with bracketing and HDR and have found a remote switch is a necessity. This one works great.

              If my new camera didn't have a built in intervalometer I'd have gotten that instead but for this camera a basic remote switch meets my needs.

              They should make this product with 3 different length cords such as 1, 2.5, and 5 ft. It wouldn't be that difficult. Some people want it longer, some want it shorter. Its definitely too long for me. I zip-tied it in a loop to make it shorter. If canon wants to be the best they should satisfy everyone by making them different sizes. This product does the job though nevertheless.

              By RP

              from Mountain View, California

              Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

              I have gone through 2 of these in the last 5 years. The cable release works well. However, with extensive use and the folding of the cable when you stow it away, the rubber insulation at the joint cracks with the resultant fraying of the cable. At this point you are better off replacing it than risking failure while out in the field.

                If you want consistent "tack sharp" images this is the way to go. I own a much more expensive "wireless" release but I haven't used it since buying this one. No batteries, no "modes", no hassle. Plug it in and fire away. Good heavy connecting cable. Should last for years.
