I just got this remote control a few days back, and so far I am pretty satisfied with it. The shipment was prompt and it arrived even faster than some of the Amazon's own products. I am using it with Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi. I chose it over some alternative products due to its compact size, and that comes in handy when lugging around a whole bunch of camera add-ons. I only have a couple of problems with it:

1. The user-instruction sheet is very poorly written and not very clear on a couple of crucial steps of the set up. It would have been more useful to have something that explains the set up in some detail with each one of the Canon products for which it's meant to be used.

2. The range of the remote is rather limited. I have not measured it exactly, but it seems that it doesn't work beyond 15 feet away.

7-28-2008 Update.

Since it seems that a lot of people are having problems with the instructions that came with this item, I decided to post a simple set-up procedure that worked for me:

1. Turn on the camera.

2. Press the "Drive mode" menu button. This is the same button as the left arrow on my camera.

3. Toggle between different setting using left and right arrow.

4. Make sure that the "Self-timer/Remote control" option is highlighted.

5. Press set button.

6. You are ready to roll. Point the remote to the camera (from the front of the camera) and press either the upper "S" (for immediate shooting) or "2S" (for 2s delayed shooting) buttons.

11-19-2009 Update.

From what I understand, the other buttons are meant to be used with Canon's point-and-shoot cameras. "S" is for shooting, and "W" and "T" are for zooming out/in. They will not work Canon's DSLR cameras.

The remote is handy, small and it does what it is supposed to do. It looks quite good I might say and I am very happy I took this instead of canon original. For this kind of simple products (not high-tech) it is not worth paying for the brand.

After setting the camera in the "remote mode" then press S/2S and you'll get the picture.

On the other hand, the limited acting distance is what I expected. It is the same as with the TV set remote. You can not use infrared from very long distance

Fabulous, pocket size, help you to work off camera not touching it at all and no having troubles with cables. Now I'm sometimes in the photos I take.
Perfect working condition, cheap (not the hard prices of the Canon originals)and battery is available practically everywhere.
I would recommend it for everyone having a Canon EOS.

Directions were not very clear and were not written in perfect english. This isn't just for Cannon cameras, it's a generic product that works on several cameras. The best I can tell,only one of the buttons on the remote actually work with the Cannon Rebel, which is what I bought it for. The other buttons are useless and do not work with my camera. I can take a picture remotely, so I guess it does work. Just disappointed in that it was advertised for the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT, XTi (my camera), and the XSi, but is really for multiple cameras and the only button that works is the shutter button.

Works great with the Canon XSi. I had a bit of an issue finding the setting on the camera, but one email to Opteka (with a quick response within a couple hours) and I had it working great. See below for setting up the Canon Rebel:

Please perform the following actions to get the remote to work on your Canon Digital Rebel:

1. Turn on the camera.

2. Press the "Drive mode" menu button.

3. Toggle between different setting using left and right arrow.

4. Make sure that the "Self-timer/Remote control" option is highlighted.

5. Press set button.

S (shutter release), and 2S (2 Second delayed shutter), are the only operative buttons for an SLR.

The S (shoot), W+T (zoom control), are for select powershot point-and-shoot cameras.

It works and easy to set up. Here's how for a T1i:

1. Turn camera on
2. Press the left directional button (Drive Mode) until it says "Self-timer/Remote control
3. Press the middle button (Set) - the orange square will turn blue and the main screen will confirm that the mode on the bottom right corner

"S" is to take the shot. "2S" to take the shot with a 2-second delay. Make sure the camera is facing you so it receives the signal.

bought this for a canon 60D. Does not work with it. Website says it does, paperwork with remote says it doesn't, and it doesn't.

I love this camera remote. It actual has more functions than the one Canon sells for my Canon Digital Rebel XSi (450D). The range is awesome. I love the delay button... works great when doing self portraits. I use this remote all of the time when I'm shooting from my tripod. I highly recommend this remote to any camera user. So easy to use and it works flawlessly. Very impressed!
