Are there third party remotes for the 7D?

I have always used third party remotes, work just fine without spending +100 dollars for a Canon brand one. But I was looking for one that had a time interval options for time-lapse video without spending +100. More like under $50, but I couldn't find any results except for this one.

Someone posted a review saying they used it on their 7D, but it didn't say anything in the title, so just curious. Thanks!

Pretty good on the review.
I had those ebay triggers. Works well if you never drop it.

If it has the N3 connector, it'll work equally well on any Canon that needs the N3 connector.

What's an N3 connector? I know it's riskier to try to go cheaper, but I've honestly been pleased with them. Some are more plasticy or don't have a nice LCD screen, but for a hundred dollars difference, it still does exactly what I need it to do.

What ebay triggers are you talking about?

The N3 connector is the one that fits the 7D, and the rest of the high-end Canons (oddball 3-pin press-fit). Basically, any remote for a Canon EOS other than a Digital Rebel or the 60D.

I use this unit, yes it works fine on my 7D. You will find yourself ref the manual a bit, it's not very intuitive to use, but has quite a lot of cool timing features. You just have to go through a lot of button presses kind of like setting an old cheap digital watch with the date lol! Oh and you will want to pull out a battery when not in use, there's no dedicated on/off switch.

There's some wireless ones out there using the exact same remote you linked that don't cost a whole lot more so keep that in mind if you have any need for remote triggering.

It works good but as mentioned above it's not the most intuitive, you'll have to actually read the manual or struggle with it for quite a while.

Just make sure you're buying one with the right connector for your model like Jon mentioned

If still in doubt about the N3 connector, you'll find a picture of it on this site:
