Canon RS-60E3 reviews

RS-60E3 Remote Switch is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 690.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must have! This remote switch is a must have for me and any photographer, amateur or professional, taking long or motion sensitive exposures / images. I like to shoot lunar images as well as storms with lightening and the remote switch with a tripod mounted camera is absolutely essential. This one is well made, reliable and easy to operate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get connected with your remote I had never used a remote switch prior to this one, and that has been my loss. This easy-to-use remote allows me to use the same functions as the camera's shutter button and by using a tripod you get better control of the appropriate moment to take a picture. In any shooting mode timing of the picture is very important: children at play, sports, changing conditions in landscapes, close-ups of flowers or birds, etc... You are no longer behind the camera waiting ( and getting tired ) but beside the camera. This allows you to view the whole scene and anticipate the right moment to pull the trigger. In fact, you become a participant as well as an observer. This remote is lightweight, and I like that because occasionnaly I let it hang on the camera. An extra foot of length would be better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have gadget for Tripod shooting As I have been starting to use slower shutter speeds and a tripod for stability, I found the remote shutter release an essential tool. Yes, you can use the timer delay release, but many times you want to be in control of exactly when the shutter releases (e.g., cars or people in your shot). It's affordable and almost a non-brainer. The only 'con' are that the cord is too short. I suppose I could have found one with a longer cord, but whatever. If I had it to do over again, I might spring for a wireless version so you can take photos where you are part of the composition or you want to be out of site of wildlife.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works well, until it doesn't. I'm was an 8 x 10 guy back in the old days, so I found out, and know, that using a cable release makes a big difference in the resulting photos, whether on a view camera, 2 1/4, 35mm or modern digital. This little remote switch works well. I just purchased another. Not to have two, but to have one. The first didn't last long, maybe a year and a half with a lot of use, and I'm pretty careful with winding the cable loosely (it's a wire) around the handle part of the switch, but the wire inside my first one lost contact with the rest of it's length. It's an inexpensive item though, so unless Canon figures out how to make it last longer, I'll just keep buying them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lead too short I bought this specifically to get Hummingbird shots. The wire is only 2 ft. I asked the sales person if there was an extension I could purchase. There isn't. I bought it anyway. Took a trip to a local electronics shop and got 2 jack adapters and a 16 ft. cable. Works perfectly. No lag time. Its as if you pressed the shutter release. Great and economical purchase for he intended use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a good job --good design Light weight remote with the same features as the camera's trigger switch. Push the button halfway to focus and all the way to shoot. The remote is designed so that pushing the trigger all the way requires much more effort than it would do on the camera's trigger, that's so you won't accidently take a shot if the remote is knocked about while it's dangling from the camera. There's also a bulb function for long exposures; simply depress the button and slide the switch forward. Plus for storage, there's a convenient notch for securely wrapping the cable around the remote. Though, the cable could be a little longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Remote switch works as advertised. The only problem I had was while shooting long exposures of fireworks, I accidently slid the shutter release lock button partially into place and one exposure ran way to long before I realized shutter was locked open. This was primarily user error but product could have been designed in such a way to make release lock more of a positive motion instead of one that could be triggered accidently. A longer cable would also have been appreciated, perhaps 3 ft instead of 2 ft.
