I was skeptical at first on ordering this product, in fact I did order from another company first and thought well it was cheap enough and maybe I was wrong. BOY WAS I WRONG!! This product came in perfect shape and once I hooked it up to my rebel T3 (Canon 100D) and fired the first shot I was hooked.

Tight fit, long cord. easy trigger lock and snap and to top it all off it is textured on the sides and a finger groove on the bottom to make sure it don't slip from your hand. I would recommend this product and company to everyone. I know I will be ordering from them again.

Bought it to use with my T3i and love it - works exactly as advertised and as expected. The cord is actually a little longer than I expected (which is a good thing) but the one thing to be aware of is the cord's stiffness. I bought it to use for macro photography while mounted on a tripod - given the very shallow depth of field and the magnification associated with macro, the slightest camera or lens movement during shutter release is evident. I noticed some of my photos came out slightly blurred and figured out it was due to not keeping my hand holding the control still when I pushed the button - the cord's stiffness caused my hand movement to transfer to the camera. A little practice of holding my hand still on my knee, against my body, etc fixed it. For the price, this is a must-have accessory, especially for tripod shooters like me.

I'm using this with my Canon G12, to reduce camera shake when the camera is on the tripod.

The Pixel RC-201 has a decent build quality; it doesn't feel like it's going to just fall apart. It works with a wide variety of cameras, so I'll be able to use it when I get a digital SLR. It fits easily into a small camera bag.

It's probably not designed for heavy or professional use. The cable is only a few feet long, so its function will be mostly to reduce camera shake rather than getting you far away from the camera. The shutter button is a little on the squishy side, and it takes a very light touch to engage AF.

There's a slider surrounding the button that allows you to lock it (the button) down for unattended multiple exposures. This is a great feature, but the slider is really easy to engage accidentally as you push the button. It's one of those things that you'll quickly learn to avoid by pressing the button at a steep enough angle.

Its size would make it uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time, but there's an indentation at the back which helps prevent drops.

For casual use, it's definitely worth a few bucks to have an accessory like this, but I can see upgrading to a nicer one at some point.

I have a Canon Rebel T3 so I don't have the option of using a wireless remote. I like this option especially when taking pictures of my baby when I can keep talking to him and making eye contact while taking pictures. I like that it feels very much like the shutter button on the camera and that holding it down part way it will focus and holding it down all the way will take the picture. I also like that it wasn't expensive as I am just a mom taking pictures of my kids. I would recommend this for anyone that has a camera that cannot do a wireless remote.

The Pixel Wired Remote control Shutter release was attempted with our Canon EOS 60D with Standard Zoom Lens and we are happy to report that it works perfectly.

My wife does some casual photography with Canon EOS 60D and she has been having issues in getting her hand steady to take that perfect long exposure shots on tripod. We researched this on the internet and found that you need some sort of remote shutter release device and this product does that job perfectly.

There are other wireless options available for Canon EOS 60D camera but we found that Pixel Wired remote control is the best as it allows you to have full control of the camera including half press to do auto focus and it behaves just like that built-in shutter release button on the camera. The wireless devices are no good if you want to take a shot from the back of the camera as they need you aim directly at the camera to take a shot.

Get this product - you will like it.

Priced correctly nice product. Highly recommended.

Cheers!

We used this to trigger our Canon rebel when taking photos of the Aurora Borealis in Alaska, in below 0 degree F conditions. It worked great.

A good value. Works perfectly with my Pentax K-5. This is a simple remote. It allows for pre-focusing and metering with a partial button push just like on the camera. The remote button can be locked down for long bulb exposures. I find a cable remote much more useful for me versus an IR remote.

There are no batteries to worry about. Plug it in and shoot.

The shutter lag is zero just as with the on-camera shutter button. IR remotes tend to have unpredictable lag.

I can activate the remote while standing behind the camera. Most IR remotes only work when in front of the camera unless you can bounce the signal off a wall or mirror.

The only issue I can find with this remote is that the button action is a bit vague. Instead of a definite two stage feel like the camera, the remote has a rather indistinct pre-release push with some friction before getting down to the final release. I don't think this will ever be an issue for me as I plan to use this mainly for macro work where I will have preset my focus and exposure and only need to do a final shutter release. If using this remote for constant exposure checking or auto-focusing where the pre-release stage of the shutter was needed it might be frustrating.

Overall a very good value.

I received the shutter release quickly. It works great on my Canon T1i, and you really can't beat the price.

However, reading the included instruction sheet is worth more than the cost of the release. A few excerpts: "1. This in an electron product accessory; some of the environment causes will be effected the working. However this is hardly ever to get this situation, don't worry." Or my favorite, "4. Please do not store this product into high temperature location, such as car internal or control panel these high temperature area." Really? They should hire a 5th grade kid to proof read their documents.
