I purchased one of these units several months ago. I have a cadre of remote controllers and one of them is suffering for heavy wear. Since I teach night/star trail photography I figured I would do myself and my students a favor by trying various intervalometers.

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.

I want to start this off by saying that I spend hours and hours looking at reviews before I buy any photo product online, and if you do the same, please take this review to heart. I am a young guy without much money, and I am always looking for the best deal, Okay, here goes:

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.

As the other two people have said, there is a real problem with the light button causing the settings to randomly go haywire. Otherwise though, I have found that for the price compared to the virtually identical Canon model, it's hard to beat. If you don't have a need for the light (like me most of the time) the functions work well and are quick and easy to setup. I do wish there was an on/off switch. The manual states that the battery should last approximately 2 years. Mine still reads full power after some fair use. I can't really comment yet on actual battery life as I've only had it for about a month. I'm finding that I use it more as a simple shutter release for macro photography. Apart from the light glitch, it has operated flawlessly for me as both a shutter release and intervalometer. That "glitch" is a pretty major problem that needs addressing, but overall for a relatively inexpensive intervalometer, I have given it a 4 rating mostly for the value to price ratio.

To be fair I have never owned the named brand - but I did a lot of research on the capabilities of Canon's and this one - and for a fraction of the cost this item is just as great! I've been using it regularly for three months and it has continued to work just as it should with no hiccups. There is no elaborate set up required to make it work. It works with the Canon 6D with no issue and it is a nice lightweight item to add to the camera bag.

Sometimes I read negative reviews and think--"They probably just got a bum (insert item here), they can't all be like that", and I buy it anyway. Well, that's what I thought about this remote, and I was dead wrong. Every issue that has already been described here happened to me within the first 48 hours I had this remote out of the box. I bought this remote because I lost my Cannon TC-80N3 remote and purchased this as a cheap replacement, so I'll give some compare and contrast for those of you wavering between the two.

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.
