Thinking about buying the remote in the link. If you have it, does it feel like junk or is it a decent remote?
I guess you can't hold the shutter open with this?

I want to play around with the bulb mode on my camera but also thought this would be good for self portraits when we do family pics or even vacation. I will Finally be in the pictures!!! :lol:

for $20 I'd get one of the no-name RF triggers. IR is line of sight only, so it can be a PITA to have to point it directly at the IR receiver on the front of the camera, depending on the shot.

I have this remote... I don't like it. You cannot hold the shutter open with it. It is really a PITA to use. I finally gave up and just started using the 10 second timer.

I've had good luck using this remote in bulb, I press the button once and the shutter stays open till I press it again.

So would an RF-603 work for a shutter release?

This looked like it might be a good deal??

should work, the RF-602 works fine with bulb mode on the 60D - be sure to get the correct plug

Yes, if you had a set.

If you don't need wireless flash triggering, too, there are cheaper solutions.

How do you know what to get when you don't know what to get?!?

I've searched and read then searched a little more but I have no clue what I want/need.
I do know after searching and watching videos that I DO want to be able to trigger one or two remote flashes. But I still want to control the shutter as well.

The Hahnel Combi TF is probably the way to go for you. It is able to trigger remote flashes and also works as a remote release. The nice thing is that you can buy separate receivers for additional flashes as required. Just be aware that you will have to set the flash output on manual power as it is not TTL.

I also use the Canon RC6 remote and highly recommend it as it can be used to record videos for recent EOS cameras with Digic 5 and later chips.
