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.

Comments about Canon RS-60E3 Remote Switch:

My Canon shutter release switch is a replacement for one I lost. I love macro and can't get along without a release. Since it is the 2nd one I've purchased, it is pretty obvious I like and use it.

Plasticky but Good

By EF Paredes

Comments about Canon RS-60E3 Remote Switch:

Feels a little plasticky, but works well. I can use this on two of my Canon bodies (the 60D and M5), so that is a bargain right there. It is very simple to use and once you establish the right touch on the shutter button for focusing, is a must for rock steady tripod-mounted photography. The shutter slides up for bulb exposures and you have to manually slide it back down to disengage the shutter. A nice basic remote shutter to add to your gear bag.

Comments about Canon RS-60E3 Remote Switch:

Purchased a second one to keep in my bag because I forgot it too many times. My only problem is that when you push the button, it sometimes slides forward too easily.

Ordered the remote switch for a photography class. The first switch I received did not work. However, B&H responded quickly and sent a second switch which works great and I received it in time for my class.

Inexpensive addition to your equipment

By Dave Tuzy

Comments about Canon RS-60E3 Remote Switch:

Being a newbie and constantly learning new things about my CanonT6i, this little remote has so helped me with longer exposures and my final images have improved. Basically, it removed the variable of camera shake (don't forget a tripod). Not my first order from B & H and as expected, flawless service once again.

I love this! I use it because my hands just can't stay still enough, long enough. I particularly enjoy the locking feature for the shutter.

Works perfectly. The only problem I've encountered is that it's easy to accidentally set it to "continuous."

Comments about Canon RS-60E3 Remote Switch:

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.
