    I didn't realize how important a shutter release was until I got mine. I was using the timer on the camera, but the remote release makes things a lot quicker. The only thing I don't like about it is that if you happen to push the button a little too hard, it can get stuck, but it will release if you push it again. For [$] though, great buy!

    Bit Disappointed

    Short cord works OK but when attach extension nothing happens. Price was right so will keep.
    Use for night photography and HDR.

          Comments about hahnel HRC 280 Remote Shutter Release for Canon:

          Once you figure out which cables go together, and how to plug things in correctly, it seems to work just fine. I need play with it a bit more to decide how effective it is.

            Comments about hahnel HRC 280 Remote Shutter Release for Canon:

            Tried this one out on my Canon 70D. Worked as advertised w/o any glitches - unlike at least one review, the extension (nice extra!) did fine also. Haven't used this in the "field" yet, but confident it will enhance my ability with those long (up to 600mm equiv) and with low light shots on the tripod. Would have given five stars but haven't used enough in all situations.

              I purchased this shutter remote to set up a photo booth at my wedding so the guests could stand in front of the camera and take their own photo. I have tried the remote on my own and it is exactly what I was looking for! The cord is definitely long enough, the half click feature auto focuses & it comes with 2 adapters so it is almost guaranteed to fit the camera. Haven't found anything that isn't so great about this product.

                    Works well for my casual photography...wish the cord fit more snug into the shutter release itself...seems a little loose.

                          It's fairly simple - just plug it into your camera and press the button. Before, I had gotten a cheap knock-off brand, and it didn't even do that so I had to return it.
