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.

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.

It works well, until it doesn't.

By Hal - RC Photoworks

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.

Works just fine the cord could have been more usable if longer but 10' is too long so I went with this one.

Worked Well Until It Didn't

By Hal

This little remote switch worked perfectly for me.  Unfortunately it only lasted about a year or so, and now I'm ordering another.  The problem isn't some mystical problem, just the wire failed where it goes into the remote.  I'm pretty careful about kinking wires or wrapping it tightly, knowing this is always a weak link to electrical devices, so I'm a bit surprised it failed.
Other than that, its worked well and I'm happy.

This switch works well, for awhile. After a year of heavy use it fails. This is my third switch.

This gadget is a must have! I don't know how I've managed so long without this gem in my photo bag. Super easy to use - just plug it into your camera! I just wish the cord a bit longer.

Worked like a charm.

By Shirleym

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

I received the Remote Switch and connected it to my Canon EOS Rebel sl-1 to take photos of items I intended to sell. Worked like a charm though the only drawback was the shortness of the cable. Though I did not really need a long cable for taking close-ups. All in all a fair price for a basic shutter cable release.
