4.0 out of 5 stars Canon RS-80N3 Remote Switch July 25, 2006
I initially bought this switch to be able to take fireworks pictures with my 30D on a tripod. It worked well for this application. Got some GREAT shots of the fireworks. Have since used it for some wildlife photos and it works well in this application also. The cord from the camera to the switch is only about two feet long. Sufficient for use on a tripod, but perhaps just a little short for any other application for the switch.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced, Look Elsewhere July 13, 2006
I saw a knockoff of this remote selling for $14 on Ebay. I thought it was better to be safe than sorry - surely the extra $35 Canon sells this remote for means that you're paying for quality. Right?

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does one thing well March 21, 2006
By Mobius
Aside form the fact that Canon charges an arm and a leg for a 1 dollar piece of plastic, the remote switch does work well. It does not feel very sturdy and does not seem nearly as well built as the Canon cameras. People with big hands may have a little trouble using this product. Overall, a "must have" addition for anyone interested in long exposures, images with excellent sharpness and depth of field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canon RS-80N3 Remnote January 15, 2007
Verified Purchase
Used the Canon RS60-E3 with my old Rebel. Now I have the Canon 5D and had to buy a new remote switch for it. The 80N3 is made a lot better than the RS60. The connection is better than the pin type on the RS60. I've use the remote for all my night shots and when I use my 100-400 lens for wild life photography. Canon did a nice job on the Remote.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have but one gripe about this product... December 31, 2007
By SJhiker
Verified Purchase
This is an excellent remote shutter switch. Works on a LOT of camera bodies (I've used it on a 10D, 20D, 30D, and 40D). The cable is just right the length and the mechanism is easy to us. It fits nicely in the palm of your hand and even has half-press focus support.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device, can't live without it. July 6, 2007
Verified Purchase
As a professional Photographer I know how important a good quality release button is. It has to be tough and dependable in all situations. I would still have the first one I bought 3 years ago had I not simply lost it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it is supposed to do.... August 14, 2006
It does what it's supposed to do. Nothing more, nothing less. If it were a little cheaper, I would have given it 5 stars.
