The compact size of this remote makes it a great add-on in any camera bag. You will need to have a tripod during the shoot so as to get the best optimal shots. You also have to remember to manually focus the camera to avoid being out of focus and be directly in front of the camera for it work. As such, taking a detailed self-portrait is hard if not impossible. In this case, using the camera's inbuilt delayed shutter mode is the answer. The major issue revolves around setting this remote control.
The instructions in the manual aren't exactly clear and are not very easy to follow. But the device is so simple, you almost don't need them. If the manual sounds confusing then just turn on your camera, press the left button on your camera and highlight the option of self-timing or remote control, then press the set button. When you are ready, you simply point the remote to the camera and on the remote press either S for immediate shutter release or 2S for shutter delay. The remote control only works when taking single shots. It's not possible to capture multiple shots at a go.
The online print description from the manufacturer states that the Opteka remote control supports the Canon rebel T2i and T3i series. This is however not indicated in the print manual and the remote doesn't support these series.Read more ›
After setting the camera in the "remote mode" then press S/2S and you'll get the picture.
On the other hand, the limited acting distance is what I expected. It is the same as with the TV set remote. You can not use infrared from very long distance
Please perform the following actions to get the remote to work on your Canon Digital Rebel:
1. Turn on the camera.
2. Press the "Drive mode" menu button.
3. Toggle between different setting using left and right arrow.
4. Make sure that the "Self-timer/Remote control" option is highlighted.
5. Press set button.
S (shutter release), and 2S (2 Second delayed shutter), are the only operative buttons for an SLR.
The S (shoot), W+T (zoom control), are for select powershot point-and-shoot cameras.
Perfect working condition, cheap (not the hard prices of the Canon originals)and battery is available practically everywhere.
I would recommend it for everyone having a Canon EOS.
The 2S mode will take 2 second and then open the shutter.
Very happy so far and I hope the battery lasts.
1. Turn camera on
2. Press the left directional button (Drive Mode) until it says "Self-timer/Remote control
3. Press the middle button (Set) - the orange square will turn blue and the main screen will confirm that the mode on the bottom right corner
"S" is to take the shot. "2S" to take the shot with a 2-second delay. Make sure the camera is facing you so it receives the signal.
