4.0 out of 5 stars a little trouble setting up, 29 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 300m Wireless Remote Shutter Control for Canon EOS 100D 60D 70D, 1100D,1000D, 700D 650D, 600D, 550D, 500D, 450D, G12 G15 G16 G1X SX50 as Canon RS-60E3 (Electronics)
bought as present for use with canon d1000 . connects to camera via a short lead and can be mounted on flash .. the receiver has 2 buttons ; 1 which can be used to operate the focus and shutter ; 2 which is a sliding on/off switch .
the remote unit has a 2 position button to auto focus and operate shutter ; and a slider to select instant or timed delay . it has no on/off switch so must have a sleep function built in .
when first arrived was quite well packed but DID NOT WORK and had no operating instructions . the receiver button operated the camera but the remote did not work even though the light came on.
TO GET IT WORKING i reset the 4 switches on remote and receiver , i used a 2 up 2 down configuration but i don't suppose it would matter what you set them to . [ MAKE SURE BOTH UNITS ARE SET THE SAME ] then removed the batteries from both remote and receiver [ you will need a very small instrument style cross head or philips screw driver to open the remote ] and then replaced them after 2 minutes , effectively restarting both units .
they have been fine ever since .
product has excellent range and doesn't even need pointing directly at receiving unit .
would have given 5 stars if it worked straight out of the box and had some instructions .

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the instruction. Better than what seller had provided (which is none). I repeated the same steps but could not make it work. I mean it works if I Have remote and receiver within 2-3 feet in straight line but not anything beyond that. Surprisingly if I attach receiver to where flash mount on top of camera, it works perfectly across the rooms. Is it correct? Do you also put receiver where flash needs to go? This will not work out for me because then I cannot use built in flash. Any idea what am I doing wrong? Will appreciate your help.

my remote and receiver work fine on or off the flash mount .. i can only suggest replacing batteries or changing the switch positions ( make sure remote and receiver are same ) other than that i don't know what to suggest .. sorry
