Great for Astrophotography!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Photive RC-6 Wireless Shutter Release For Canon Digital Rebel T5i, T4i, T3i, T2i, T1i, XT, Xti, 5D Mark II, 7D, Canon EOS 7D Mark II, 70D (Canon RC-5 & RC-6 Replacement) (Electronics)
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.

Did it work with the bulb setting on your camera?

Exactly my question. It does not work with the Bulb setting in my T3i. Does it work for your camera? If not, why do you think it is so useful for astrophotography?
