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.

    I specifically bought this for a Canon EOS 70D and was not dissapointed. After setting the drive button to the remote with timer I was able to take portraits with my wife using the remote and had enough time to hide the remote and not interfere with the photos. I was at first worried about the remote when I got it, because the shipping guy put the box inside some kind of paper that resembled cardboard but was thinner and pretty rigid. I ripped open the package and the box inside was completely smashed. Fortunately the remote was fine. Other than that, I recommend for using on just about any canon EOS DSLR camera, as it seems to work on them all.

    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.

    it's worthless

    By jim

    from Massachusetts

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

    Got this as part of a Canon kit. It didn't work. They sent me a replacement that worked but only if within 6 inches. I thought I would try a new battery (which cost more than the remote ) and the range increased to 2 feet. And this was in a dimly lit room. Don't buy this, it's worthless.

    Nice to have the immediate shutter release and 2 second delay shutter release options, and it has decent range. However, the remote does seem to be somewhat hit or miss: sometimes pressing the button fails to trigger the shutter.

      I am always the one behind the camera and never get in the group pics! This Thanksgiving was a unique gathering so I set up my tripod, got the family together and passed the tiny remote around! It was fun and worked great as long as it was in a direct line of sight with the sensor on camera.

          This is a nice little remote. I haven't played with it too much yet, but it does what it's supposed to, and it's easy to take in an over-the-shoulder camera bag.

                  I've only used this product once, but it was great. Really easy set up with the camera (5D MII). It didn't always release the shutter the first try, but for $ I can't really complain about that. I love the 2 second delay feature so I can put my arm down and hide the remote in family photos. I did have to buy a new battery as the one it came with was dead on arrival, but I expected that after other reviews.

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

                  The product highlights here says 15' range, the in-box little brochure says "up" to 15'. The actual, straight out of the box, is less than 10', and even that is hit-and-miss. So unless you're using a very wide lens you can forget those selfies. Very hard to recommend, I'll write this off and replace it with something better.

                    It does as advertised. Please be aware that the infrared sensor is located on the top right front of the camera (right of lens). It's important to know where the sensor is because if you accidentally block it with your finger (happens often) then the remote won't trigger the camera to shoot. Other than that it works flawlessly.

                          This works very well for simple picture taking. All I use it for is to take family photos, point and click. It is very easy to use, anyone could use it. If I had to think of a con it would only be that the remote has to be pointed at the front of the camera (just like a tv remote). So you have to be creative in photos so its not obvious you are holding a remote. But other than that. Its awesome!

                              I do YouTube videos, and needed to do wide shots of myself and several other people recently for some videos, so I bought this. It often takes a few times of pressing the button for the camera to recognize it and start filming(Cannon 7D), but it does work and so it meets the need.

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

                                Does what it's intended to do. I mount my Canon EOS-M on my motorhome dash as a poorman's dashcam. The Vello IR Control lets me start recording if anything happens or if I'm pulled over at one of the ubiquitous law enforcement checkpoints. I want to be sure everyone stays honest about what happens.

                                Very basic but it's worth the money

                                    No issues with it. It performs as it is advertised. I would buy it again.
