    I use the remote switch for still life and landscape shooting. At a great price, it performs a simple job reasonably well. As some others have noted, you have to take care not to accidently slide the button into locked position. The primary flaw that I find is the camera connector. While it will align with the 3 pins in the camera connection, the connector itself is smaller than the connector opening on my 7D, and so it fits very loosely and can easily become disconnected.

          I didn't want to pay the price for the original and the expensive extension cord so I bought two copies of this product, cut one in half and extended it using an old audio three-wire cable, a soldering iron, and some shrink wrap insulating tube. Now I have two shutter releases: one 2.8' and another at 12'... all at about 1/4 what it otherwise would have cost. It works!

              Comments about Vello RS-C2II Wired Remote Switch for Canon DSLRs w/ 3-Pin Connection:

              I needed a cheap wired remote for long exposure infrared photography. I knew I will be right by the camera and the cable length was plenty to move around the tripod without worrying about not reaching the remote. Most importantly I needed something affordable and the RS-C2II was the perfect solution.

              Works fine as a cable release and I had no issues with being able to stage focus/meter from shutter trip. If you pushed and accidently slid forward or backward on button, it sometimes stuck without touching the lock at all. No big deal, but thought it was worthy of mention

                I needed a release for my camera to do photography in the dark forest. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a piece of equipment that I only use occasionally. This release does the job perfectly and is simple to use. It does the job.

                  This remote switch is simple to use, just plug in. No headache for battery. My Camera has Wifi but I preferred the wired version. I used iOS app for remote triggering which wasn't so responsive. That's why I got the wired switch. And the price is great.

                      This little guy is cheap and does the job, no batteries required. Forget the timer for your long exposure of macro shots- just buy one of these and save yourself the headache making sure your camera isn't shaking.

                            Given the low price (vs. Canon's own switch) I was somewhat worried about construction quality. However, I am happy to report that (a) the button (both half-press and full release) and hold lock work well and (b) the 3-pin plug fits firmly into the remote socket on my Canon 20D.

                                            Comments about Vello RS-C2II Wired Remote Switch for Canon DSLRs w/ 3-Pin Connection:

                                            I use the remote switch for still life and landscape shooting. At a great price, it performs a simple job reasonably well. As some others have noted, you have to take care not to accidently slide the button into locked position. The primary flaw that I find is the camera connector. While it will align with the 3 pins in the camera connection, the connector itself is smaller than the connector opening on my 7D, and so it fits very loosely and can easily become disconnected.

                                              I like using it when I want to hold the camera as still as I possibly can and not affect the picture by pushing the front button on the camera itself. I originally purchased this switch because I'd heard that there's a life on the button of the camera, so to spare the button, I figured I could wear this out instead. Works well and inexpensive.

                                                  It works just as well as the Canon part. It's well made and looks like it will hold up to use. I think this is a very good alternative to spending the extra money on the Canon equivalent. Nothing to complain about here.
