I consider it "overpriced" for what it is, but if you need a manually operated remote switch, it performs this function well. The release button has an option where you can lock-it "ON". It's useful if you what to leave your camera's shutter open for a long exposure.
I didn't research any other brands of remote switches for my Canon 30D. There may be others, but I was in a hurry to have something before the 4th of July, and just ordered it, since I knew is was suppose to work with my camera.
It performs it's intended design function. It's overpriced, in my estimation, but if you need one, this one will perform the job.
Wrong. This is nothing but a cheap piece of plastic with a short wire attached to it. It feels like you could break the switch in your own hands if you press hard enough.
Despite the ridiculous price tag, the remote allows for some beautiful long exposures when used with a tripod. The shutter lock is also a nice feature.
All in all, it's nice to own this piece of equipment...although you're not getting anything extra with the Canon name.
My only gripe? I think it's just a wee bit expensive. I think this is more like a $25 product...not $40 or more.
The RS-80N3 works with any EOS with a N series socket, i.e., pro and semi pro EOS made after 1998, e.g., EOS 3, 1V, 1D series, 5D series, 6D, 7D series, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, etc. It does not work with the EOS M series, Rebel series, Elan series, 60D and 70D. These models require a release with a mini-plug connector, e.g., RS60-E3.
The RS-80N3 is easy to use. First, press the cable connector into the socket (under the side rubber boot) until you feel a click. It's now locked. Operation is exactly like the normal shutter button: half depress locks AF and metering and full depress fires the shutter.
I bought my RS-80N3 in 1998 with a new EOS 3 and it has been utterly reliable all these years. Plus, the socket lock insures it won't fall out when you're hiking with a tripod/camera on your shoulder (must be pressed and twisted to release). I also owned a RS-80N3 clone and it broke after only a year of light use. Although pricy, my RS-80N3 has proved itself worthy of the four benjamins I shelled out and outlasted a dozen of my EOS cameras!
The biggest shortcoming that I've found with this product is that it only connects one way. When connected to the camera body, the cord faces forward toward the lens. When setting up a few manual focus shots, the cord did prove to be a bit of a nuisance. Also, it puts additional strain on the cord where it connects to the switch body (a point of failure noted in other reviews). For this shortcoming alone, I have decided to subtract one star from an otherwise 5-star review.
As an aside, the switch does not require batteries.
So, if you're looking for an EOS camera remote switch that utilizes an N3 type connector, I would highly recommend the RS-80N3. It's a little bit on the more expensive side of the spectrum, but the quality of the product is evident and if you use care when plugging in or removing the connector, it should provide many years of hassle-free shutter clicks.

I use this with a copy stand to take pictures of documents, but it has many other uses. Love being able to press it halfway to activate functions and my Canon 7D LCD screen.Published 19 days ago by Jim Davis

Overall the remote works. The cord is a little short and the pins seem fragile and extremely thin. It can only be mounted in one way, so trying to get it line up in the dark... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Version One
