Excellent Release with wide canon support,
This review is from: Ex-Pro Wireless-Pro RS-80N3 2.4GHz LCD Timer Remote Switch Control for Canon DSLR Cameras [See Description for Models] (Electronics)
The Giga T Pro wireless release is an excellent addition to my photo bag. The box contains four parts; a tripod head adaptor which recieves signals from the radio remote control and two wires one to 3 pin connector for pro gear and one 2.5mm connector for consumer kit. This is excellent for people who have moved up through teh canon range from a 400 to a 40d or who have one of the fantastic pro pocket cameras like the Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera (10 Megapixel, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.8 inch LCD.
Besides having a long open air range (i have tried it at about 30m and it was still working fine) the T-pro is programmable to act as an intervalometer for time lapse photos; or you can program in delays before taking images. The remote control supports half depression to focus as well as full bulb capabilities; including programmed bulb timings - you can set the camera to take a 30 second exposure and press the button once. The wireless remote is far more convenient than a cabled remote; removing the last trace of shake from a tripod mounted camera at night; and the programmed modes / intervalometer make it worth the extra cost over the canon wireless modes.
I dinked a point for a the batteries they have used; and how they are confgiured. The main body of the camera uses CR2 lithium batteries; these are nicely behind a removable / loseable cover. You can get CR2 batteries in Boots but whilst wondering the world they aren't going to be so easy to find; so take a spare. The remote uses a CR2032 calculator battery; and its sealed behind tiny screws so i hope that it lasts a long time as i don't want to travel with watchmakers screwdrivers on me.
