The remote itself isn't rocket science so I won't go into a lot of techie details. It is small enough to fit easily in the accessory pouch of my camera case, comfortable to hold and has a large curved disc that helps you slide your thumb exactly over the raised release button without having to look at the switch. That makes it easy to hold inconspicuously at your side. You also have the option of setting a slide switch on the back of the case to permit a 2-second delay after pushing the button. That way you can push the button and put your hands wherever you want to. A third option is if you set your camera to "bulb" one push will open the shutter and a second push will close the shutter ... no need to hold the button in.
Most people don't like self-timers for good reason - the mad dash to get into the frame with your group usually results in unnatural photos. With a wireless remote you can concentrate on having fun without the stress.
Time will tell how long this remote will last, not that I plan to use it every day anyway, but if it fails I'm not too concerned. I can buy 6 more of them for the price of one Canon-branded unit.
PS - I'm choosing to reinsert the little plastic tab that came with the remote to keep the battery from making contact (so it didn't accidentally discharge in shipping). It's easy to slide back in and I think it will help prolong the battery life if the button gets pushed while in my carrying case.
Either DOA, or not a Canon RC-6 as it claims to be in the description. Absolutely 0 documentation at all, just the clicker in a plastic envelope in a box labeled RC-6 for Canon. I read some other reviews about it being hard to set up. Well maybe that is my problem ,since there is no instructions, maybe it needs to somehow be programmed. However with 1 button and 1 switch on back ( on/off I assume , just has a 2 next to it ), I really can't see how it could be programmed unless using Morse code on the button. Should be self-explanatory. Aim the camera, put camera in remote mode, stand in front of the camera and click the button on remote. Of course that assumes you have the proper remote.
I thought maybe it was just shipped with an old/dead battery. I tried putting a brand new Maxell in it, but it made no difference
