    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.

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

        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.

                          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.

                                After misplacing my Canon remote wired switch, I decided it was time for a replacement. For a fraction of the cost of another Canon switch, this product sounded identical. Indeed, it is. We'll see if it holds up over time, but, so far so good.

                                Essential for long exposures, I purchased it to work with my 7D while taking sunsets and it's a great improvement for a very reasonable price. Very basic but I it just works. Be careful lining up the pins when connecting.

                                        This remote switch from Vello works as well as the same canon brand switch I had on my older Rebel and priced right -- just a great value.

                                        I recommend this because it is by far much cheaper than the Canon version. The only problem with this is that its all too simple for the button to lock when pressed. Regardless it does the job well.

                                            Have used a few times since i've purchased, and have not had any issues. Based on the comments, I bought an extra one, just in case, and am still $30 ahead of what it would cost to buy the Canon version.

                                              I am happy with the RS-C2II wired remote switch. Easy to set up and operate it was a great choice that I will use for a long time.

                                              I bought this for my granddaughter. I have this remote and it works great and does it's job! Works great for night shoots and especially bulb shooting!

                                                  Nothing too special about this. Push the button and it works. I like that you can click half way to get focus.

                                                  Only downside is the length of the cord but the product description clearly stated the short length so you know what you're getting. It almost makes self-takes with my son a possibility with the camera on a tripod and a 35 prime.

                                                    I like using this wired remote when I am taking landscapes or night pictures and the camera is on a tripod. It reduces camera shake to be able to hold the remote and not have to push the shutter button or set a timer.

                                                    Even though I am using this with a Canon 6D which has wifi and an app that I can use with my phone, this is just quicker and I am looking through my camera and not on my cell phone. I also have a wireless remote which is also much simplier then the smartphone app.
