The IR-C2 Infrared Remote Control for Select Canon Cameras from Vello is a wireless remote control that lets you take photos and videos with your Canon camera from up to fifteen feet away. The Vello IR-C2 is especially useful for preventing camera shake during long exposures, and for taking self-portraits. It can also be used to trigger a remote camera when shooting events. For photo applications, it offers two options to release the shutter, the S button which fires your camera immediately and the 2S button which fires the camera after a 2-second delay. For shooting video on video compatible cameras, set the camera to video mode, establish your frame and focus, enable the camera's remote function and press the 2S button on the remote to start recording video and press it again to stop the recording. You can shoot a still photo during video recording by pressing the S button.

To successfully use the infrared remote, your camera must be set on the remote trigger function and the IR-C2 remote needs to point directly at the camera with no physical obstructions between the camera and remote.

      This was the cheepest shutter remote after looking for a few minutes, and I'm on a budget. Its very small, light, and easy to use. The range isnt great, and you have to point it directly at the sensor on the camera (which can be a bit annoying) but its not too much of a problem. I use it for lightning, and other long exposure type shots, and Ive seen great results. Not for pro portrait photography.

      After learning well the angle at which this works, it gets the job done. But it's not entirely effective. The instant snap, and 2 second timer are great tools. Where this device falls short is that the Infrared signal, literally needs to point straight towards the sensor. There is little angle freedom to press the button. For lesser the price, I've tested similar products that offer more of this angle freedom.

      Comments about Vello IR-C2 Infrared Remote Control for Select Canon Cameras:

      at the price, I'm upset that I didn't see it sooner as i bought the wired Canon remote release at about 4x the cost and I'm still tethered to the camera. The only disadvantage is that you have to be somewhere near the front of the camera for the IR signal to be seen by the camera which is not a deal keller for the price.

      Comments about Vello IR-C2 Infrared Remote Control for Select Canon Cameras:

      This is an easy to use, very light, and small. The remote works without any learning curve. Just take it out of the box, remove battery protection strip, and your set to go. The only requirement is that your camera has infrared access. I'm glad I purchased the remote.

      Terrible range

      By Newbie

      from Brooklyn

      Comments about Vello IR-C2 Infrared Remote Control for Select Canon Cameras:

      This is great for engaging the shutter without touching the camera but it's useless to stand any distance away and take a shot with you in the picture. The range is awful.

          Works find with my Rebel T3i.

          Range is limited outdoors in sunlight, but that's expected.

          Would be nice if it had a carry case or switch to prevent accidental battery drain when stored in the camera bag.

              I can confirm this remote works with a Pentax K3. Also, what is great about this remote is, you can replace the battery unlike the Offical Pentax one.

                  Comments about Vello IR-C2 Infrared Remote Control for Select Canon Cameras:

                  Have used it a few times, always from behind the camera (to prevent shake during slow shutter). Works well but the IR sensor on my camera is in the front which requires me to put the controller in front of the camera and position it towards the sensor. Not a big deal, this is standard camera design.

                  Haven't needed to test the 15ft. range the controller claims.

                    Works great, same as the original, nice packing, came pretty fast, range is OK.

                    This is what you're looking for, and it does a great job at it.

                                    I use this Vello remote for portraits, when I prefer as little camera shake as possible (usually sunset situations). It, like other Vello products I have purchased, is amazingly capable for the price. I also own a vertical grip, and it has never failed me.

                                    I would be a fool not to prefer Canon products over compatible off-brands, but if your budget is limited, Vello is the way to go.

                                    Comments about Vello IR-C2 Infrared Remote Control for Select Canon Cameras:

                                    After learning well the angle at which this works, it gets the job done. But it's not entirely effective. The instant snap, and 2 second timer are great tools. Where this device falls short is that the Infrared signal, literally needs to point straight towards the sensor. There is little angle freedom to press the button. For lesser the price, I've tested similar products that offer more of this angle freedom.

                                      This product worked fabulously in very cold temperatures. Helped me to take great pix! Great price too!
