The compact Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 with a 2.6'/80cm cable is a remote shutter release which is designed to prevent camera shake for super telephoto shots, macro photography and bulb exposures. Handy for taking pictures of subjects that are difficult to approach, or to minimize vibration for close-ups and time exposure.

The Remote Switch works just like a shutter button, enabling halfway or complete pressing. It also has a shutter-release lock. With the EOS-3's Custom Function No. 12 (mirror lockup), camera shake can be further reduced.

Compatible with EOS-3, 1v HS/1v, 1D-series, 1Ds-series, 5D-series, 6D-series 7D, D30, D60, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D and 50D.

Note: Not compatible with the EOS Rebel series, EOS 60D or the 70D.

Note: Only compatible in still mode. Will not trigger the camera in video mode.

Remote Switch RS-80N3 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 661.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does its job just fine. When my Canon TC-80N3 timer remote suddenly died recently I decided to replace it with this timerless RS-80N3. I did this because in 5 years of heavy professional use I had never once used the timer function of the original, far more expensive, TC-80N3. Comments have been made in other reviews about the construction of the RS. It's virtually the same as the far more expensive TC-80N3, less the timer. Same durability. The plug locks onto the camera until you tug on the locking collar; it's simple and very effective. Other inexpensive third party remote releases don't have this locking plug. This feature should certainly be one of the main incentives to choose the Canon-made RS-80N3 over similarly priced third party alternatives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Remote I just got this remote in the mail, my first impression is that its function might be worth the asking price, being able to remotely operate the shutter. The build quality is pretty low, canon is making a lot of money on this one. Feels like it is made out of hallow plastic and probably is. The cord is nice and thick and looks like it will be kink resistant. The L-shaped plug however faces 180 degree the wrong way on my 40D, IE the L faces to the front of the camera. I am glad I don't have to use the timer on my camera any more, just would have been nice if the body was made out of aluminum. 5 for function, 3 for build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweetness! This ingenious device is a must have if you shoot long exposures. I have always used a wireless shutter release remote, a wireless remote is good to have but the RS-80N3 is even better. I have had occasional problems using the wireless remote with not being able to get the shutter to close once open (mainly due to line of sight). If you are in front of your camera it's great to have, when you shoot from behind the camera it's not so great I have bumped my camera a few times ruining a shot (my carelessness) when using the RS-80N3 Remote Switch I don't have to get close to close to the camera to release the shutter it's a good device to have!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Remote switch is better than none I like this, it is simple & does the job without spending a few hundred dollard for the wireless version. But...They really need to make this cord 5ft long. 2.6 ft does not allow me to set up the camera and place a chair nearby waiting for the right moment. It is difficult to use while waiting because your arm is held at length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from With Canon you get what you pay for! I wanted a remote switch for my Canon 5D Mark III and worked the internet over reviewing options. Some are cheaper than dirt and others with little or more options run on the high side. I finally elected to write B&H to obtain guidance and the remote switch No. RS-80N3 was recommended.(By the way I have visited the B&H operations many times when in NY on business. This has to be the premiere camera and related product enterprise business in the world). I purchased the remote switch with full confidence both B&H and Canon would back me with issues. The switch arrived timely and is doing the job I hoped it would. I did not like the price tag, but know fully well that with Canon you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I had ordered the RC-1 wireless remote first, thinking it would be better because there is not a chord. Well, to my surprise the wireless remote does not work from behind the camera. It only works if you are in front of the camera or out to the side of it. So, it's good for self portraits and test shots but I wanted something that would allow me to still be able to look through the viewfinder behind the camera and line up my shot and get a picture with no camera shake. So, even though the RS-80N3 has a chord it is easier to use then the wireless one. They are both cheap so get both if you can. The RS-80N3 does not require any batteries which is nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Expensive to be So Cheap This is the second one of these I've owned, the first failed because the wiring separated from the top of the switch mechanism. It worked like that for a while but then started to intermittently not react to commands. So I bought another. In less than a year the rubber wire attachment at the top of the remote has opened up and exposed the copper wiring underneath. It still works fine, but I am waiting for it to start failing me. I don't like to have potential problems lurking in my camera bag so this really causes me anxiety. I'm thinking of buying the cheaper after-market one as a backup for when this does stop working. Bottom Line: the above review is the review I would expect to read for the cheap after-market version. Instead, the reviews are better for that one and it's less than $10!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very handy I love this remote switch. I find myself in many situations where my camera is tripod mounted and I need absolute stillness during a shot. If you're shooting HDR images (multiple exposures) or anything that requires absolute sharpness (product shots) this will do the job. Combine this device with tripod, a good prime lens, a stopped down aperture setting and mirror slap enabled and you've got a formula for some very sharp photography.There are times you need to garantee your composition doesn't budge the slightest bit - the RS-80N3 is the tool to ensure just that.Don't buy cheap ... knockoffs. They break fast (I know). Trust Canon.
