Will using this eliminate the need for locking the mirror up, or does that have to be done in addition to and separately from firing with the remote?
Asked by: Anonymous
While the Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 does assist in reducing vibrations caused by you pressing the shutter button, if you are attempting to eliminate all vibrations from your image for long exposures or macro photography to reduce image blur, you may still use mirror lockup in addition to using the Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 to reduce vibrations.

Is this compatible with Canon mirrorless cameras such as the EOS R ?
Asked by: Brian
According to the B&H website under Accessories for the R5, the correct remote switch is TC 80N3. I would not use the RS for this camera.

I understand this works like the shutter button on the camera. Does that include pressing the shutter button halfway to meter for exposure prior to shutter release?
Asked by: Henri d.
Yes it does focus at half press if the camera is set to auto focus. My camera is a Canon 50D. Don't know about others.
