    Canon TC-80N3 reviews

    Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 455.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Timer This timer remote works intuitively. I was using it seconds after opening the box, and didn't even need to open the manual to figure out interval mode shooting for time lapse. I like that the battery lasts as long as it does, although an on/off switch seems like it would make sense. It's sturdy, although I wouldn't want to step on it by accident. I also think it will be useful for photography where the camera is taking very long exposure shots, and any camera movement is absolutely prohibited. I'm glad I got the Canon branded version instead of a cheap knock-off. When I'm being paid for my work, I need to be able to rely on my gear. This guy gets the job done.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electronic shutter release and more The Canon Remote Controller TC-80N3 is an electronic cable shutter release combined with a remote timer that greatly expands the functionality of built into your camera. In addition to the cable release you get a much expanded self-timer, a long exposure timer, and exposure count control. The product is easy to use and intuitive, and it works well out of the box. I have not used the controller long enough to have a feel for its durability; however, the device displays quality one would expect from Canon. If you just need a cable release, you might want to pass on this controller. But if you even think you might need the extra features go with the TC-80N3 you won't be sorry.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Function Yes. Price No! If you're looking for a simple remote trigger look elsewhere. If you're after a tool to help with very long exposures or time lapse this is the tool. Sadly it is much larger than it needs to be, far too expensive and it has no way of shutting it off. The only way to conserve battery life is to remove the battery. Does it do what it claims? Yes. I think this item should be re-engineered to have a smaller form factor, a power button and a better ergonomic for left handed individuals. Bottom line: I'd only recommend this to people who truly need it for it unique functions. It is simple to use and functions well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Durability problems I have just killed my third TC-80N3 and feel the need, finally, to review this piece of equipment.The timer remote is great functionally. It does everything you could need it to do. The backlight is effective, all the controls work fine, it is reliable and does what it is supposed to.The problem is that this is now, apparently, a $ item. I think it was closer to 120 the last time I bought one. Let me say this simply: it's not worth it. The problem with this unit is that, eventually, the cord on the timer remote end pulls out. It has happened to all 3 of my TC-80N3's that I have owned. On the last one, I actually taped the connection to the remote as soon as I took it out of the box to prevent this from happening. It helped, but finally after maybe a year and a half or two years it has pulled out again.I use the timer remote for almost every shot I take, so I am definitely a heavy user. However, for $, the knockoffs of which sell for 20 bucks, this thing should be more durable. Use braided wire, improve the strain relief on the remote end. Having this thing fail three time for the same reason every time is not acceptable.I would advise anyone buying this to tape or otherwise try to mitigate the issues on the remote end BEFORE they become a problem.For me, I have finally had it and will be buying the knockoffs. For 20, or even 50, bucks I can afford to have a backup which will be nice. The TC-80N3 is a good piece of gear for 50 bucks. For $ it is a tremendous ripoff and severely lacking in quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A You can't get a sharper photo than with your camera sitting on a tripod and using a remote shutter release. Especially with those slow shutter speeds. The 2.6 foot cord is long enough for me in most cases. Any longer and it would just be in the way. You can get an extension, but it's not cheap. It can funtion as a basic shutter release like the RS-80N3 even without a battery installed. (This is the way I use it most of the time with my 50D) There should be a switch to turn off the LCD display to extend its lifetime.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding addition to your bag, if you This timer isn't cheap, but it is very flexible if you need (want) to take very long exposures (up to 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds). If you need those kind of shots, or want to have it take evenly spaced exposures starting at a pre-determined time, it is a good investment. It is well built and a fun accessory for expanding your image taking flexibility. I have used it several times for night photography and am glad that I have it because it is a real pain to stand there with the shutter held open by manual pressure on it. It adds to my creativity and lets me do things that would otherwise by difficult, if not impossible to do otherwise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful tool Powerful toolWhy would you want to buy this product? 1.)Remote shutter release - that can be 30 feet away with the Canon extension cable. Photograph birds in the nest. Buy the extension cable yes it cost about $70 but, if you do this kind of photography you will need it.2.)Remote timer delay the shutter from 1 second to 99 hours. Photograph the moon's phases over time or anything with a cycle time. Combine this function with exposure count to have more capability.3.)Interval timer photograph a flower bloom opening Take a photo every X seconds for days, great for time laps photography. 1 second to 99 hours with or without limits on the number of exposures.4.)Long exposure take a 15 min exposure of a night scene, etc. - 1 second to 99 hours.5.)Set exposure count combine this function with other functions above to limit the number of exposures taken. A Zero value = no limits on the number of exposures taken.Some reviews have complained that this tool does not have an on /off switch. You do not need an on / off switch. The battery life with this device on 24 hours a day is over three years. Does your watch need a on / off switch?Others have stated that it is limited to 99 exposures, not true. ... set to 00 (blank setting) the number of time interval shooting will be unlimited. This product works great, gives you many options to photograph special subjects, is light weight, has a night light for the display and allows you to take a photo anytime by pressing the remote shutter release. You can start or stop any function by pressing the start / stop button. Yes the buttons are small, but it works fine for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So good, I bought another one I've had one of these for a long time. It lived on a jury-rigged mount on my tripod. Very durable, weather-resistant, and oh-so-useful. When six years of abuse finally took their toll and I determined that no amount of soldering or re-wiring would save it, I immediately bought a new one. Even a week without it was a pain. Easy to use, goes forever on one battery, lots of options. Probably my only gripe is that there's no real mounting points or any way to hold the thing without covering the buttons. I drilled a hole through the case of my old one and used some parachute cord and a rubber grommet, but that's really not Best Practice.
