I bought this for use with my Rebel XT (350D) and it's been great. When mounted on a tripod, this remote helps completely get ride of any camera shake, even that caused by simply pressing the on camera shutter button. So far I've used it to shoot models, cars, and scenery and it's paid for itself. Great remote for the money.

Cable is just the right length. Multi-function button is perfect to get AE/AF lock and then take the picture.

Only down side is I always reach for the wrong part of the remote - they put the button on the side where the wire comes out so that when it dangles from your camera, the button is already on top; but I always try to correct for where I think the button should be (so by making it more ergonomic they made it seem backwards). I should get used to this over time though.

I prefer this to my wireless RC-1 which only gets use for self portrait work.

This is a great, inexpensive, bare-bones shutter release. The chief drawback is the tiny cable, which makes this virtually useless for self portraits or anything else that requires you to be more than a foot away from your camera. However, if you are looking for something that simply mimics your shutter button and allows you to A) take photos without camera shake and B) hold your shutter open for long exposures, this is fantastic.

    Does as advertised. Has Bulb lock on it. Short cord. So not for selfies. Seems like good quality. Have had this product before (clients property) for closup work. Works well.

                    This is a handy remote switch to have. I had one that came with the camera but it was wireless and didn't work. I bought this one to help reduce camera shake while working. I can set up my camera on a tripod (or solid surface) and use this to set my focus and then take the photo. All without touching the camera. Glad I got it.

                            This cable release does everything you'd expect. Half press to AF, full press for shutter release. There is even a lock to keep the shutter depressed. I had to slum it with a third party brand though. I have a Pentax DSLR, so while Pentax cable releases are absurdly high quality, they are pricy and uncommon. Luckily Canon was kind enough to recognize a chance for increased market share and release something compatible with one of the big boys.

                              If you need a wired remote for your 70D, I'd highly recommend this one. It might cost a little more than a 3rd party item, however for your money you get a quality product. After all, that's why you bought a Canon camera in the first place, right?

                                Purchased this item along with a macro lens. However, waiting for momma Blue Heron to fly back to nest to fed youngin', I found this to help my back while telephoto lens was on camera/tripod. Focused and stepped back with release in hand. Also works wonderful with macro and slow shutter speeds - reason it was purchased.

                                      It works as advertized. Delivery was fast and efficient as is usual for B and H.
