Canon Remote Controller Advice

Fri Dec 03, 2004 7:52 am

Hi Guys,

Looking to buy an accessory for my 20D that I can plug in and set to avoid camera shake when mounted on tripod etc by delaying the shutter release. I've had a look at the TC-80N3 - would this do the job...or are there others you'd recommend?

Cheers

Henry

The TC-80N3 is the more expensive remote controller, I have the RS-80N3 and its more than adequate for what I do. Simple but effective.

On a related note, what use(s) would that remote have for aviation photography ?

The only thing I managed with the G5's remote so far was missing the Rhaa of shot - no batteries inside (duh!)

Yeah for me I like doing night stuff, and with winter drawing in it'll probably be a useful buy!
