This is a nice gadget, but with one disadvantige over RC-1.. With RC-5 you CAN`T take pictures instantly, but only with a 2 sec. delay, and on RC-1 you have the choice. Other than that there isn`t much more to say, i mean it is only one button remote.. :) But offcourse, before you decide to buy RC-1 instead RC-5 check will it work with your camera (i have 300D (digital rebel) so in my case both of them work)

OK the remote works fine in communicating with the camera and all of that, but it has a big drawback for me and something I wish I had found out before I purchased it. You have to wait for a 2sec delay after you push the shutter button on the remote for the camera to fire. There are other remotes for Canon DSLR's that are right at the same price and give you the option of firing with you click the button or to have a 2 second delay. Trust me having both options is way better than being limited to just one of them.

Bought this for my Canon Rebel XT so I could shoot on a tripod and not have to worry about camera shake from pressing the shutter button, or wait 10 seconds for the timer for every picture. It makes the wait for long exposures that much quicker and more efficient.

Sometimes it's a little tricky to get a signal on it since you can only click it from the front of the camera, but it's a negligible annoyance.

Also, it does auto-focus the camera when you click, so if you're auto-focusing through the camera yourself already, I'd suggest getting a focus on your object and then switching it to manual focus, so the camera doesn't try to re-focus on something else.

All in all, great product.

I am using this remote with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel and it works great! It would be nice to get the RC-1 so there isn't a 2 sec delay, but for my needs the RC-5 is fine.

The Canon RC-5 does what it promises: remotely trigger the shutter. Keep in mind that there is a 2 second delay between pressing the button and the shutter action. This allows you, if you are in the field of view, to put your hand down and hide the remote so that it is not in the shot.

I started doing landscape and macro shots to widen my range of shooting, primarily in late afternoon hours. I found that after setting my camera and tripod at the site I initially decide is ideal, I like to make a few adjustments here and there when I step back or off to the side to tweak my point of view. Having this remote, even with such a small delay, enables me to slightly adjust my camera position and then just click the shot on my remote. I love the freedom and the flexibility of having this remote!

Being new to the world of digital cameras I was excited about being able to take a group picture without having to leave one person out to take the picture, or having to run to get in the picture within the timer count down. This product not only will allow you to take a remote picture, but will also allow you to set a 2 second delay, which is not mentioned in the listing. The 2 second delay allows you just enough time to hid the remote before the shutter releases. This makes for great pictures. You are limited to taking pictures within 16 feet so long as there is line-of-sight between the wireless remote and the front IR sensor on the camera; in my case a Canon 7D. I recommend this product to amateurs and professionals alike.

The Canon RC-5 wireless remote is exactly what I was looking for for wireless shutter release. It is small and very light, perfect for when you want to shoot a picture and not see the trigger device. I was very please with the whole purchase abd delivery of this item. I would recommend this remote to all my family and friends.
