All the functions on the product works with my Canon 600D. First thing I did was test all the options available on the intervalometer (love the name of these things) and all worked flawlessly. To learn how to use the 'Interval' setting, I did not need to use the manual as it was quite straightforward. However I did use the manual for the other settings. The manual itself isn't that clear at times, but honestly, it's a minor issue as you do learn your way around the device.
Plastic - to give you an idea, similar build quality to that of your lens cap. Some people may not prefer it, but I think it's the right balance and weight as it will inevitably be hanging off my camera whilst in use. The cable is a generous length, I think it's a metre long which is more than enough for myself.
It uses a Lithium Cell CR2032 battery. Very common to find in shops/various online websites and quite cheap. The only issue I had with regards to, not so much the battery but the device itself is, you can't switch it off. So as long as the battery is in there, it will stay switched on. But you know what, it is again a minor issue as it is so easy to take the battery out and put back in - but some may find this to be an annoyance.
Brilliant, does exactly what it says on the tin. Works perfectly with my Canon 600D and at a reasonable price compared to other intervalometers. The point about not being able to switch the device off didn't deter me from giving it 5 stars because for me, it's a factor which I can easily overlook.
I can definitely suggest if you have a Canon 600D/550D (T3i/T2i), to buy it.
