Very functional camera cable release
 from La Canada Flintridge, CA,  Oct 8, 2012

This unit functions as a simple cable release, as well as a self timer (releasing the shutter after a delay you choose), an intervalometer (tripping the camera shutter at set intervals of time), a long exposure controller when the camera's "B" manual shutter setting is used, and a shutter trip counter for a set number of frames. It permits combinations of these functions, also. With a camera mounted on a tripod, this (wired) remote controller will permit a photographer to do far more than simply reduce vibrations for a photograph. Time lapse photography and city lights, fireworks, and night sky photography can be added to your repertoire. You do have to be mindful of some limitations. There is a slight delay in tripping the shutter after the button is pushed. It may not take the desired number of frames if the interval between frames is too short. Do an experiment first to find out how short the interval can be. Use only brand new AAA batteries - if they are even slightly weak, the remote controller won't work. Take the batteries out of the unit if you only use it infrequently. The batteries may weaken or wear out between uses since the internal timer keeps running as long as there is power available to it. This is an inexpensive and functional back-up to the many-featured Canon-branded cable release. It fits Canon's "prosumer" cameras and a few others; check the Canon website to confirm the connector needed for your camera matches this connector.

Works as stated
 from Waxahahcie, Texas,  Aug 22, 2012

This works like it says it does. A great value for the price. I have done a few star trails and it works like a charm. The only negative is there is no off/on button so you have to remove the batteries to turn it off.

Timer Control Cord
 from KC, KS,  Jun 11, 2012

It seems we got a good product. We can program the remote control to take a lot of pictures. I think we will enjoy more taking pics now of the storms, moon and moving things, it will help us a lot with the remote.

Fantastic Timer/Remote Cord...
 from Dallas, TX,  Mar 21, 2012

This is not simply a remote cord. There are so many different setting you can do with this one unit. It is relatively simple to use & fun once you understand the features. This was a great deal for such a useful and versitile piece of equipment.

  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very light, nice back-light, sturdy cord

Many options, easy to use, great deal.
 from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio,  Mar 12, 2012

This timer remote is a great deal and should not be overlooked based on price. The quality is very good, cord length is better than some of the other units offered, and there are so many different options on use. It can be used to just take a shot in any mode or it can excel when used as a timer, you can program delay start, elapsed time between shots, and up to 399 shots. I have used the old style cable shutter release in my Pentax ME Super, however that does not even compare to this. I recommend this to those that want to take a hands off approach to shooting pictures, especially if you want to be in them, just let your imagination run wild on how you could use this remote, and all for a very low price. One note, this does require 2 AAA batteries, so you may want to purchase those here also.
