This unit I cannot recommend, unfortunately. Both times I have tried to use it the battery was nearly dead rendering the unit useless as anything other than a remote cable release. It is powered with a CR2032 lithium coin battery but there is no on-off switch.
Functionally this unit is programmed the same way as the Canon TC80N3 Timer Remote Control for EOS D30, D60, D10, 1D, 1V & 20D SLR Cameras. I appreciate that when you program an interval between shots you simply enter the delay between shots. Many other controllers require you to set the interval to be greater than the exposure time.
One of my disappointments with the unit is that even though it includes a light - that light does not stay on long enough to be able to reprogram it in the dark. About 3 seconds is all and then it shuts off - it takes longer than that to adjust just one of the 3 2-digit segments of each of the 4 settings!
UPDATE: I also found that with fresh batteries about 50% of the time when the "Light" button is pressed, the timer resets to 0-0-0. This makes it useless at night when I most often want to use it. I have downgraded it to 2 stars. However if you never need the light (and never press the button) it may work just fine for you.
A second problem with the unit is that it does not have any LED, or sound indicator to make it possible to know in the dark whether it is actually running.Read more ›
I am putting this back in its box and packing it for return as I type! Thank goodness for Amazon's awesome return policy! I am buying the real deal Canon TC-80N3 now. This thing is made out of the most hollow feeling craptastic-plastic I've ever felt. The shutter button feels like it will fall off each time you press it. I mean, It feels like a toy out of one of those grabber machines. It worked well, for ONE time lapse. Then it said the battery was low, and whenever I tried to "start/stop" my time lapse, it would turn off. QUALITY! So as I am ranting, I would just like to point out that I did remember to take the battery out constantly (since there is NO OFF SWITCH), and my time lapse session only lasted about 2 hours, shooting a shot every 30 seconds. This should not kill a battery. So I go to my local camera shop and buy the $4! Battery, put in the brand new battery... and Bada boom, it says low battery on this new battery too. I love a good deal, and I get 3rd party products (awesome Tamron 17-50 and Tokina 11-16), But this is NOT one of those. If you cherish your photos..... do you really wanna have your shutter timer crap out in the middle of the time lapse or bulb exposure of a lifetime?! I dont. I would suck it up and buy the real deal in this situation, that's what credit cards are for. I hope I don't come across angry or like a snob, because really, I'm a photo nut who is all about value. Hope this review helps steer a few people away. Cheers and take lots of photos!
My Camera: EOS 7D, just to show this is not a compatibility issue.
Remote in general:
-- First, the remote is a little flimsy compared to my Cannon TC-80N3, but that's to be expected with a cheaper version.
-- Same size/shape/layout as the TC-80N3, all the buttons function the same
-- Unlike the TC-80N3, the "wheel" that switches through mode values is NOT actually a wheel. That is, it doesn't spin all the way around, you just push it up or down like a really poorly designed toggle switch. I say "poorly designed" because sometimes it doesn't change the value at all, sometimes pressing just a little too hard up or down deactivates the ability to change the number. This means it takes foreeevver to change the mode settings, particularly when compared to the TC-80N3.
-- I've seen some reviews claiming that what causes this remote's short battery life is that it doesn't have an on/off switch, so let me clarify--NEITHER DOES THE TC-80N3. However, in the 3 months I had my TC-80N3, including hundreds and hundreds of shots, I have never once had to change the battery. With the Apurture 3C, however, I was getting a low-battery warning within the first 50 shots. Popping out the battery and putting it back in gave me an extra 10-20 shots before the low-battery warning came back, but it always did.Read more ›
