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:

        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.

            This remote is a very good alternative for the Canon RC-6 remote with a 3rd of its price. I haven't used it much, just tested to make sure that it works. It does its job.

                          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.

                              Works great with my Canon 6D. Direct line of sight.

                              So simple. Just works. 15 foot max and need to have cam see the remote - so best in front of cam - line of sight.

                                Took only a few second to set up. Works great for video and pictures on a Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens

                                      Works without issues with 5DM3. Needs direct line of sight though.
