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.

            Works perfectly as a straight forward shutter release. What you would expect from Canon. There are similar products at a lower cost, but there's always a risk of quality. For a little extra, I went for something I can depend on.

            I have not had the opportunity / need to use this item as of yet, other than a few test shots. Very easy to use and quite affordable. The cord could be longer, but I knew that when I ordered it and it suits my needs.

              Does as advertised. Has Bulb lock on it. Short cord. So not for selfies. Seems like good quality. Have had this product before (clients property) for closup work. Works well.
