Wish it was longer...

The only downside I can think of is that the cord is too short. Yes, I knew full well it was only 3ft long. In most cases, 3ft is plenty long, but when photographing children in the studio, I like to be able to get down on their level and interact with them. With a long release cable, I can't be right down in the mix and not tethered to the camera.

My next remote release will be wireless, but this one will stay in the bag as a back up.

I mostly use this when I hook the camera to a T-mount and shoot through my telescope. Focus is manual with a knob and holding this in my left hand I can manipulate the scope with my right and take great long distance shots. Fits in hand, I can use it with gloves. Only thing that could make it better is if it had a retractable cord.

Great product

This cable release is exactly what I wanted. It allows use of a long lens on a tripod without the shake that occurs when the shutter is released.
The only improvement I would like to see is either a longer cable or the availability of an extender cable. This would allow you to be other than right next to the camera while shooting.

Works perfect

It works perfectly on my XTI. I did find a need for a little longer cord as others mentioned, but overall it works fine. I had been using the IR remote but this is much better as I dont have to be in front of the camera to use it. I only wish I had gotten it sooner. Good product

Does its job

Unlike some of the other reviews, I've experienced nothing that would make me believe that this will suddenly stop working. Since this is something I use only occasionally, I saw no need to purchase a more expensive release. Just hanging out at the house, I've used it for at least 100 shots and there have been no hiccups.

Canon G12 remote trigger

Got exactly what I was hoping for. The G12 has a hair trigger on the shutter, and when shooting HDR or pseudo-miniature shots (or Macros, for that matter), even the slightest movement of the body ruins the shot. This remote allows me to get the shot and mirrors the on-body controls. Click, focus and hold functions work well.

you need it. buy it.

i am writing this review on my mother's behalf. i purchased this switch for her, after using one myself made for my 20D for a few years now. she loves it. 'just like i love mine. if you use a tripod, you have a need for this switch, so buy it. you'll be happy with the purchase.

works like a charm

This works exactly as it says it should, and it has the appropriate connection for my Canon Digital Rebel XTi. Under the rubber "video out" flap is a jack specifically for the release. I've taken some stellar long exposures using this, and it's compact enough to fit nicely in a side pocket of my Lowepro bag.

Useful product, Works as advertised

Works quite well, no problems. A longer cord would be a nice option (6 to 8 feet). Standing right next to the camera makes it more a 'hands off' shutter control rather than a true 'remote'. Even with this limitation it improves macro and close up work by reducing camera jiggle.

Very Good Value

Hm, let me think, do I spend $xx on Canon's release or $xx/1.77 on Adorama's? The answer is Adorama! It plugs in, you can go to the focus position and then trip the shutter. It can also be locked on. Just as good as Canon and nearly half the price/

Negative Reviews:

Will not be re-purchasing

This is an awesome KIND of product for uses where you don't want camera shake (macro, low-light, portrait, etc), but I am less than pleased with this particular model. It does work as advertised, and works quite well, but the area where the extension cable enters the remote is so weak, the attachment so shoddy, that it pulled out (taking the wires, and thus all functionality) after probably 5 hours of gentle use. If you get one, make sure you have some epoxy on hand to repair that junction before the wires are completely pulled out...and if you want to try to repair it, there are micro-screws under the shiny label on the back, so you don't have to mutilate it trying to open it.
In summary, if the thing would hold together, it would be the ideal inexpensive version of this kind of product. As is, however, it needs improvement. It's just too bad I tossed the warranty card!

Did not Work!

The remote controller did not work with my Rebel XTi. It would allow the camera to run the auto focus and set the exposure, but it would not trigger the shutter release. Tried everything I could think of to make it work and nothing helped. .

Neutral Reviews:

Great Gadget, but Misfires Occasionally

I bought one of these for my XTi due to the good reviews. I do like it, however it occasionally misfires (ie - fires when I'm not even touching the button). Not too big a deal, but extremely annoying. Maybe I just got a bad one. Sometimes it seems to lock up too and I have to unplug/replug it for it to work. When I do this it tends to misfire as soon as I plug it back in.
I recommend it nonetheless for the photographer on a tight budget. I will likely replace it with a Canon remote in the future.

good product

Prevents camera shake cheaper than the canon switch.
