Customer Reviews of Canon RS-60E3 Remote Switch + Cleaning Kit for EOS Rebel T1i, T2i, XSi, XS, XTi & XT Digital Cameras
I had ordered a macro lens and knew from past experience that I would need this gadget. I had used the older type with the pushcable when I shot Olympuses. (Could even shoot off two cameras at once with my double. I was hip!) But anyway I was planning to take protraits and did not want to be tied down BEHIND the camera-especially with shooting kids. This trick allows one enough space to stand beside even slightly in front of the camera (out of lens angle) and to interract with the subject. I just wish it were a little longer but it works ok. Of course it is a must for macro photography. So far I have found it extremely useful for shooting portraits. One series of repeat firing happened with me at first. I had somehow managed to lock the firing button down and the flashes was going off like crazy. I thought something was busted. It turned out my fingers had gone too far doing what they shouldn't. If this should happen to you do not get alarmed. Just release the lock button and you will be back in business. By the way the lock button is a blessing to prevent misfirings and provide temporary lock-up. I would not want to work without it if at all my camera is on a tripod or any kind of rest at all. Do not attempt real macro work without it or remote firing. Framing focusing and going to activate the self-timer ain't too kosher either for at real high magnification without feather touch one could easily re-frame the shot. It is what I call my sure sloth finger. Of course not so much use for it on the go. Oh! Yes! I do not do this a lot now but can you imagine a 500 or 600 mm lens-stalking wildlife? Use it for that as well! Enjoy and like I say Canon perhaps give me another 4 to 6 inches next time!

Great product! I just wish the cord lenght was longer! Other than that it was just what I wanted

Great remote trigger unit8/30/2011
This is a great unit. I use it mainly for long exposures for astro photography. It is light weight and there are no batteries to replace at a critical moment.
