I bought this for use with my Rebel XT (350D) and it's been great. When mounted on a tripod, this remote helps completely get ride of any camera shake, even that caused by simply pressing the on camera shutter button. So far I've used it to shoot models, cars, and scenery and it's paid for itself. Great remote for the money.

Cable is just the right length. Multi-function button is perfect to get AE/AF lock and then take the picture.

Only down side is I always reach for the wrong part of the remote - they put the button on the side where the wire comes out so that when it dangles from your camera, the button is already on top; but I always try to correct for where I think the button should be (so by making it more ergonomic they made it seem backwards). I should get used to this over time though.

I prefer this to my wireless RC-1 which only gets use for self portrait work.

This is a great, inexpensive, bare-bones shutter release. The chief drawback is the tiny cable, which makes this virtually useless for self portraits or anything else that requires you to be more than a foot away from your camera. However, if you are looking for something that simply mimics your shutter button and allows you to A) take photos without camera shake and B) hold your shutter open for long exposures, this is fantastic.

        This thing is perfect for longer exposure times and not having to touch the camera. The 2' cable could be a little longer, but that was not enough to take it down to 4 stars for me.

                    Perfect item to eliminate camera shake, and easily fits inside a pocket of a camera bag. Quick to install for its intended use.

                    Relatively short cable limits your range of motion but would still prefer this limitation as opposed to relying on line-of-sight characteristics from an IR remote.

                        Remote switch provides a method of remote triggering the camera. This switch works just like the camera's trigger. The switch can be partially depressed to get a focus and light measurement.

                        It feels well made like most Canon products.
                        It's clear that it is the basic model but since my camera has built in wifi I can use my iPhone as a wireless trigger when I need to.
