    Excellent little remote performs just like its Canon counterpart. Lightweight, fast, and inexpensive, this remote gave me the ability to get some great shots of the NYC fireworks (even though my view was subpar!) If you want to get creative with your photography you definitely need one of these.

    Bought it as my camera doesn't allow 3 sec shutter release delay AND exposure bracketing for HDR (which requires a tripod..)

    All the functionality of the OEM product at a fraction of the price. However, the micro-jack doesn't fit in the camera very securely and needs fiddling with to make good contact.

        Comments about Vello RS-C1II Wired Remote Switch for Select Canon, Pentax & Samsung:

        I am a cheap skate amateur with a Canon T3i, 55-250 telephoto lens, Velo VEEXTCD extension tube set. I take mostly macro pictures; portraits of bugs, flowers, and other small stuff.
        I really like using this remote switch with my camera on a monopod or tripod. The switch is smooth and reliable. It prevents me from moving the camera. I think it is well worth the money.

                      My Canon wired remote wore out after several years of use, so I decided to try this one. Has worked great so far, have had it to use out in the field for a few weeks now. No problems. Feels a little more solid than the Canon version.

                        The RS-C1II Wired Remote Switch by Vello works as advertised. While I haven't used it much yet it has functioned perfectly on my Pentax K-500. Just like the shutter release on the camera, the RSC1II sets the focus when the release button is partially depresses and then releases the shutter when depressed fully. The button can be locked once depressed by sliding it forward. It's a bargain!

                                  Yes, it's not a solid perhaps as it's Canon counterpart, but who cares. It's less expensive, is light, and works without a hitch. I use it all the time.

                                  Basic cabled shutter release with a lock. Well made easy to use. Highly recommended.

                                        No frills, no fuss. It performs as advertised, it has the ability to lock, and it is a fraction of the price of the Canon model. Highly recommended.

                                            I love using this remote when I am shooting birds or other sujects with my long lens and I want the camera to remain as steady as possible. It really does the job well.

                                                Figured I'd give it a shot due to the fact that it's a fraction of the price for the Pentax cable release, but also because it has more than twice the reach in length. Turns out it works perfectly with the Pentax K-3. It does exactly what it advertises -- Autofocus with it, quick snap, lock the shutter open, etc. Also feels like it has a nice and solid construction. Kind of hard to complain against all of that.
