  • Canon RC-1: More than Remotely Useful.

    Jul 3, 2009 by theuerkorn is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Electronics
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clip design, small size, easy to use, direct and 2s delayed shutter control
    Cons: Limited range, line-of-sight only, no "half-press" mode

    Summary: I have been using Canon's xxD series for a while (20D, 40D) and since neither offers a built-in wireless remote control option, the corded switch was really the best and only option. Consumer cameras like the Digital Rebel in several incarnations, on the ... read more

    Pros: Storage convenience, wireless, sturdy, 2 sec w/ mirror lock, works with bulb mode
    Cons: IR limitations; No L mode (mirror lock) with Rebel XT

    Summary: Being in IT, I have purchased a good number of digital cameras over the years, and one of the things that caught my eye about 8 years ago was the emergence of wireless remotes. Back then, it was somewhat of a side note, and it doesn't seem that things ... read more

  • A Quality Camera under $200.

    Oct 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy enough and good enough for most users. Lots of quality for the money.
    Cons: About perfect for what it is and what it costs.

    Summary: $189 buys a very capable digital camera at Sam's Club. To that purchase you'll need to add a 1GB (or better) Memory Stick Duo Pro ($33), screen protector ($10), and belt-loop case ($15)for basic operations. Total $247. What makes this camera so ... read more

  • Handy tool for the Rebel (and other compatible models) - Canon RC-1 Remote Control

    Mar 26, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Simple and easy to use, Long battery life, Locked, regular and delayed modes
    Cons: IR requires line-of-sight to fire camera

    Summary: If you have a digital Rebel camera (or any of the several Canon models that this remote supports), this handy little remote control can let you take group photos or long exposure shots without having to touch the camera. While it’s not perfect, ... read more

  • Great tool for Digital Rebel

    Mar 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Locks onto the camera neckstrap; does its job very well
    Cons: Price

    Summary: Though I'm hardly a great photographer, one thing I've always loved ever since beginning to use an SLR is taking long-exposure shots. I love setting up the tripod and taking pictures of lightning streaking through the sky during thunderstorms, or ... read more

  • Makes things a lot easier

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: tiny, lightweight, freedom of movement
    Cons: none

    Summary: Being a photographer, I am always looking for products that will make my life easier. I had been wanting a remote control for my Canon Elan film camera for awhile but I had not decided which one to purchase. Previously I had been using the ... read more

  • Inexpensive solution for group photographs

    Feb 6, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works well, small, easy to operate.
    Cons: Easy to lose, a little flimsy.

    Summary: The RC-1 remote control from Canon can be used to operate the shutter release on many popular cameras including Elan II/e and EOS IX. This wireless remote can be used up to 16 feet (5 metres) from the camera infront, or from a few feet behind. This is a ... read more

  • SLR goes wireless!

    Dec 22, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: X-Ray like infra-red reception, great range, cheaper than wired remote, comes with batteries.
    Cons: Cheap plastic casing, continuous shooting not available via remote.

    Summary: Bought the RC-1 for long exposures with my EOS Elan 7E, in which pressing the shutter can potentially move camera and fuzz the exposure (no matter how rock steady my tripod may be). I had a hard time deciding between this and the wired version of the ... read more

    Pros: digital display, removable base, even cooking, large
    Cons: mine kept shutting off in the middle of cooking for no apparent reason

    Summary: I loved this electric skillet at first. It has a digital display. It is LARGE. It has a clear top so you can see what you are cooking without opening the top. It seems to heat evenly. You can remove the skillet from the base for easy cleaning and ... read more
