There is only one reason why i am giving this item a 4 star review: It fit my need perfectly!

I'm an amateur astro photographer and was looking for a quick and inexpensive way to take pictures without shaking my telescope mount. The range on this remote is absolute crap. Walk more than 5-6 feet away from the camera and it will not work. If you're looking for an accessory that will let you take great group photos without having to run back to your place, then look elsewhere, the range will probably kill those plans. If all you need is a remote shutter release, then buy this. It works just fine when close to the camera, there are no set up steps and it's easy to carry around.

For the price, it's an absolute must for budding astro photographers. Everyone else should probably get something with a bit more range.

This seemed like it was going to be a great device for my Rebel T2i. It worked right away and I was able to snap 3 shots. Then nothing. It just died. I was wondering if my photos would all have me pointing the thing at the camera, but then I noticed on the back you can set it for a 2 second delay by moving a small switch (never got to try it since it went dead). I even swapped out the batteries, but no dice. I just got a dud, it happens. Sent it back to Amazon since they offer a 100% guarantee.

AMAZON.COM ORDERING TIP:
Just a little side note, I rarely order electronic devices from an outside seller on Amazon anymore since I was burned by getting a dud headset once. I do order many other products from outside sellers as long as I know I won't need to return the item (as return shipping fees usually apply). The seller wanted me to pay for return shipping which was practically the total price anyway. So I only order from Amazon (i.e. it will say the seller is Amazon and a hint is, Free Super Saving Shipping or the Amazon Prime logo -it will have an Amazon.comLLC tag) so that I can send it back via free shipping label for a complete refund. Just thought that might help someone.

For the price, you can't go wrong. I have had no issues so far with this. I used it the other day to take some long exposure landscape pictures where I didn't want to bother with the timer or push the shutter. I am a fan of the 2 second delay as well. It gives you a chance to put the release away before the picture is taken. I haven't noticed any issues with range. Good product, good buy.

The item arrived and was functional. Initially, it had OK range for shooting indoor self portraits. The next weekend when it was used again, it started to act funny, where you would have to lean in and hold the button for it to activate. The unit finally stopped working. These devices sometimes don't come with the best battery initially, so I changed the battery. The range instantly was back to normal. Well, now it is a couple weeks later, and the unit has not been used much. I go outside to take some night pictures of the moon, and I have to put the thing right onto the camera sensor for it to work. This thing eats batteries! With all the negative reviews I see, I am going to try the canon RC-6. I agree with other reviews, waste of money.

Follow-up:
Got the official Canon remote, so I thought I'd do a little experimenting with the Photive unit. I opened it up, and took some power measurements. The thing draws over 350 microamps quiescent current. A typical CR-2032 battery has about 240 milliamp hours capacity. This equates to about 28 days of life maximally, with the range dropping off drastically towards the end of life. WOW! this is disappointing. The Photive unit literally consumes the battery just sitting there. This is an extremely poor design.

I've got a Canon Rebel T2i, and this thing works perfectly. Super cheap, no reason not to buy it. Just remember the IR sensor for the rebel is on the front, so you have to be in front of the camera for it to work. Also set the camera to remote control/timer instead of single frame.

It works okay except in bulb mode. Every time I press the button for close the shutter, it always take another shot.
So I returned this guy and bought the Canon's one instead.

I've had this item for only a few days but used it several times. Each time it has worked perfectly. Some cautions are worth noting. The product instructions specify that the item works only within a 30 degree angle of the sensor on the camera. Also, for outdoor use, the subject must not be backlit (as strong sunlight interferes with the infrared signal, I suppose.) Lastly, a footnote in the Canon Rebel T3i user's manual says that these items might work less well in fluorescent lighting.

Up-date: Two more notes. (1) Don't expect this item to act like your car key, that sends a radio signal with a casual flip of the wrist. This is essentially a flashlight; although you can't see the infrared beam, it's still light you're working with. You have to be more deliberate when you aim at the camera and press the button. (2) Don't forget to set your camera's self-timer. This item works only when the camera is in that mode.

Very good deal. It works on 5D Mark III as well. So far I only use it for about 10-15ft away, so i don't know how far I can go.
