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.

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...Read complete review

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.

I recently lost my Canon remote switch. I was tempted to by an off brand but declined to go with the Canon. No regrets.

Ever had a wireless remote not work? Never at a convenient time. I always carry this wired remote as a spare or primary release.

Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

I purchased an off-brand and right away I could tell the quality was sub par. A week later I purchased the Canon brand and immediately the difference was apparent. I did not take it out of the packaging and just that alone told me I made the right choice. I kept the off brand for a back up, but I do not expect to need it since the build quality from the Canon brand is far superior.

Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

I didn't give a 5-star. Whenever I take a vertical shot with my Canon 5D Mark III, the end is off from the camera by its own weight. So often detached!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend. I've been using it with my Cannon 7D and it works exactly as advertised. Exactly what I needed to achieve sharper images especially when shooting at night with long exposure times.

Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

Works well. You just have to be careful to not accidentally slide it into bulb mode. Once I had the 12 second timer set and accidentally switched this into bulb. Took me a while to figure that one out...sort of like accidentally engaging the "lock" switch on the camera accidentally. You can also use the shutter mirror delay on some cameras to minimize the need for this.

Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

Yes it's pricey but it does the job. I have a off brand cable and it works fine but it does come out from time to time. Not really that big of a deal, but kind of a hassle. I'm happy with the product.

Smoother, easier to plug into camera. Off brand that I have been using was hard to push in to camera body.

Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3

Comments about Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3:

A must for night, landscape, wildlife, ND, close-up, or macro or usage. I have one of these in each of my 4 camera bags. The price is reasonable for its reliability. I've had no problems for years with this item(s).
I use them in Alaska and Iceland for landscape and wildlife and capturing the Northern Lights, at home when photographing the space shuttle closing in on the ISS, ND photographs at the beach. Close-up's of flowers.
