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

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.

Opteka RC-4 Wireless Remote Control for Canon EOS Digital Rebel (XT, XTi, XSi, T1i, T2i, T3i, T4i, 60D, 7D and 5D) and Mark (II/III) digital SLR cameras allows for shutter speed release of up to 16 feet. This is the perfect remote control for group photos. It gives one the option of choosing between an immediate shutter release and a 2 seconds shutter delay. The 2 seconds shutter delay is there to make sure that everyone in the group photo smiles and says cheese.

The compact size of this remote makes it a great add-on in any camera bag. You will need to have a tripod during the shoot so as to get the best optimal shots. You also have to remember to manually focus the camera to avoid being out of focus and be directly in front of the camera for it work. As such, taking a detailed self-portrait is hard if not impossible. In this case, using the camera's inbuilt delayed shutter mode is the answer. The major issue revolves around setting this remote control.

The instructions in the manual aren't exactly clear and are not very easy to follow. But the device is so simple, you almost don't need them. If the manual sounds confusing then just turn on your camera, press the left button on your camera and highlight the option of self-timing or remote control, then press the set button. When you are ready, you simply point the remote to the camera and on the remote press either S for immediate shutter release or 2S for shutter delay. The remote control only works when taking single shots. It's not possible to capture multiple shots at a go.

The online print description from the manufacturer states that the Opteka remote control supports the Canon rebel T2i and T3i series. This is however not indicated in the print manual and the remote doesn't support these series.

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.

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.
