The product isn't brilliantly described here, so I'll explain it in a little more detail.

There are four things this timer does-
1: Self timer. Set the time the timer will wait for before starting he next steps.
2: Interval set. Sets the time the timer will wait before taking a new photo.
3: Bulb mode duration. Set your camera to bulb mode and the timer can hold the shutter open for up to 100 hours (~4 days). Set your camera to continuous shooting and the camera will keep taking photos for the time you set.
4: Photo Counter. Set the camera to take 1-99 photos, or leave it on infinite.

Using these modes together, this is a powerful tool. Some uses so far:
Time lapse: Wait 2 minutes and then take a photo every 30 seconds until 50 photos have been taken.
Astrophotography: Wait 5 seconds and then open shutter for 1/4 hour.
Nature photography: Take 5 second burst of photos.

Build quality is excellent, and the controls are perfectly designed. There is also a nice big button which can be locked down so you can use it like a normal shutter release.

I was impressed to see the timer can trigger autofocus a second or two before taking the photo. Mine came with a battery as well.

The manual is comprehensive, useful and well phrased, although a couple of times the translation to English results in a few errors (you can set the number of hours, minutes or secretaries) but none are major enough to cause problems in understanding.

Aside from the short cable, this is the ultimate shutter release.

It's basically described well by Alex and Thomas, but I'd like to restate that it's much more feature-paked than any Canon remote for cameras without the "N" fitting or whatever it is.

I think Thomas either got a different item to me or ot it slightly wrong, the "number of shots" can be set up to 399, not 99, but to be honest you'll probably either use infinite or <99 anyway.

Now on to the bad points: it's a little cheap (quality-wise). The timer can hop around a bit in how long it thinks a second is - it's hard to represent this textually but it'll do something like:

1---2---3---4---5---6---7---8--- <-- real time
1---2--3----4---5---6----7--8--- <-- how the timer can count sometimes

So it averages out at a (real) second per (its interpretation of a) second, but if you need it to be precise, then it may disappoint.

Luckily, I'm using it for time lapse, where the camera will decide the shot length and the remote is used purely as an intervalometer with large enough interval for the odd second not to be a problem, and astrophotography where the shot length is generally long enough not to be affected by this.

Also, one thing that kinda bugs me about this but it's not a problem is that it's always on. The only way to turn it off is to take the battery out. Having said that, the manual specifically states that it's an always-on device (like a watch!) so I guess that's normal. And it doesn't seem to be using a lot of juice, although I wouldn't know as I've only had it a couple of weeks (but the battery hasn't died yet!)

And yes, the cable is somewhat short but not really a problem for me.

Hope this helps someone out.

LCD timer remote is a must have for every photographer because it lets you manage some settings without touching the camera. Plus you can take a number of shots at specific times. You can adjust exposure, interval, number of shots. It's simple to use. You learn it in five minutes. The LCD monitor lits, so you can use it in the dark. It comes with a very helpful manual.
Tip: if you want to shot images at 1/4, 1/20, 1/400... you can adjust the settings from the camera menu and set remote's exposure setting to zero.

Nice unit with all the right functions, but the connector does not fit either my 400D or 600D. And consequently not with the 450D, 500D, 550D, as they all share similar connections.

It's not helpful to write incorrect compatibility in the item name. Please correct pronto. Make sure you do some research before purchasing.

I bought this to photograph the Northern lights and it performed flawlessly. You can set delay to start taking exposures, length of exposure and time between exposures as well as number of exposures.

It's not immediately intuitive but the manual is good and once you understand the display it makes perfect sense. You can also backlight the display which was useful during the Arctic night. It has an LED which lights when the shutter is open which might affect those doing astro-photography and a beep on shutter open which is useful at night but can be disabled if it drives you mad.

Was suggested I get a timer for astrophotography, to be exact the canon official timer. I am not going to pay £150 for that though. This does exactly the same thing and very well for a fraction of the price. Very happy.

I bought this item and I'm pretty happy with it. I use it for time-lapse photography. It does what it says. You can set intervals between shots and you can set maximum capture shot of 400 frames or unlimited. You can also shoot HDR time-lapse with it: Set your camera to AEB (bracketed frames) and continuous shooting and set the Timer Remote to 1 sec "long". That way will take the bracketed frames in the "long" value and will have also the interval time between the shots. Furthermore it can be used also as a simple remote shooting button. Excellent !!
