    I was expecting this remote to be small, but when the box arrived I was surprised by just *how* small. Once I got over the shock though, I started using it straight away (coming as it does complete with the 2 cell batteries it requires) with my 400D. Works perfectly (with a pretty good range), and the 2-second delay option is great for reaching around and getting your hand out of the way in time for macro work.

    Just bought one of these for an eos 300D. This remote control is tiny! it has a bracket that fits it to the camera strap so you need never forget it.
    The remote will take an immediate shot, a 2 second delayed shot, or work the bulb setting (one click open one click to shut). This remote will NOT as far as I know - operate the multiple shooting (burst) mode or give you the half pressed exposure button info on an eos 300D.
    But I love this gadget its soooo small, its actual size fitted to the strap bracket is; 16mm D x 60mm L x 23mm W, in use the unit is only 10mm Deep, and uses 2x CR1220 watch type batteries

    I find this device extremely useful.

    The basic idea is that it allows you to operate the shutter of the camera without touching the camera itself thus eliminating camera shake. It opens up a whole world of possibilities for taking available light still life shots in low light which I like to do or being able to set up your camera rig for insects say and then move away so you don't spook them but set the camera off remotely to capture the shots.

    When you have your camera set up with the mirror lock up function enabled there is a two second delay from pressing the remote shutter release to the shot being taken enabling any vibrations induced by the motion of the mirror flicking up to die off. I was dubious but I have to admit there is a slight increase in image quality doing things this way. You'll likely only notice it above 100% crop and again only if you're looking for it but for the sticklers out there (me included) you'll be happy in the knowledge you're doing the best thing to achieve maximum quality with your camera.

    The device itself is small and possibly prone to get lost so make sure you look after it. There's a clip so you can clip it to your camera strap for safe keeping. I've had mine ages and used it lots and the batteries are still going strong. I usually find myself behind the camera at fairly close range using the thing and the signal emmitted is strong enough to bounce of nearby walls and objects into the camera's sensor and I never have a problem setting my camera off with it.

    Works with my 400D but NOT my 5D.

    Highly recommended.

    I think I want it but I'm not sure, what cameras can I use it with?
    Canon EOS 10, 100, 30, 50, 50E 300D, 350D and 400D

    Ok I have one of those. What batteries does it use? I bet they're a pain.
    2 x 3V CR1220 and they are packaged with the item.

    What does it do?
    Allows you to take pictures without pressing the shutter button.
    Allows a 2 second shutter delay remotely. Works at a distance of up to 16ft (5m)

    Anything else?
    Yes, you can attach it to your camera strap, keeping it safe and accessible.

    Right, I've done a bit of remote shooting and I'm bored what else can I use it for?
    Ok, so you've had some fun but you want more. First of all, on a practical note the remote can be used when you want the camera to be absolutely still when you activate the shutter which sometimes doesn't occur when depressing the shutter release yourself. This can be of use when you're shooting, say, macro work where camera shake is very obvious. Secondly, the best use for this remote is due to the in-camera exposure limit of 30 seconds. Try to go beyond that (in M mode) and you will see "bulb" in the camera display. Exposures of a length beyond 30 seconds require a remote. Why would you want to achieve such long exposures? Well, for instance (using a tripod) try shooting traffic passing by at night. You'll like the effects. Try shooting the stars for an extended exposure and see the results. The opportunities are endless and that's when this tiny yet perfect bit of kit comes into its own...

    The reason why I wanted one of these was to make the taking of self-portraits easier (yes, I love me!).

    Other reviews I read didn't give details of how the remote works with auto-focusing but I ordered one anyway and can now confirm that:-

    the shutter release on the remote is not the same as on the camera i.e. it's just a single-click rather than "press halfway to focus" then "fully depress to take the shot". However, if you leave the lens set on Autofocus, and press the remote, the camera does autofocus then take the shot.

    This is important because I don't think the camera will focus again before taking a shot if you just use the camera's self-timer.

    Also, if you've got something like an f1.4 lens and want your eyes to be the only things in focus, you could set the lens on manual focus, keep moving closer and further from the camera and keep taking snaps until you get a winner. In the time it takes to wait for the camera's self-timer to countdown to take one shot, you could probably take 20 shots with the remote control.
