Are there any recommendations for the best remote shutter release timer for a t2i? I was recently given a TC-80N3 which seemed to have all the features I required, except for the correct jack. Are there any other remote timers which deliver the same features as the TC-80N3 for the t2i?

Thanks!!

You can do wireless for $40.00 http://www.dealextreme​.com …samsung-canon-2-aaa-54761 (external link)

Or you can do wired for $24.00 http://www.dealextreme​.com …10d-k10d-more-2-aaa-51745 (external link)

There are quite a few different clones of these around. I've seen them on e-bay for $8.00 plus shipping.

The clones are good for the Rebel series. People go crazy when they see I spent the full monty on the TC-80N3, but I tried just about all the clones for my 7d and the one thing the Canon version is far superior for is the connector. The e3 connector on the Canon timer is bomb proof, good quality rubber with a metal sleeve that locks the connector on your camera. It's worth it for me.


If you must know...

Take a look at Phottix's offering. I have been quite satisfied with their Cleon product.

You can do wireless RF release for about $40 (Vello Freewave from B&H) and wired release for about $5 (from Amazon, B&H). I have both and both work quite well, unless you are looking for something that goes beyond the cameras shutter capabilities. Either of these will work with anything the camera shutter release is designed to do, half press and full press.

If you need something with a built in time delay, then I can't help you.

I am looking for a clone of the TC-80N3 with the same features (ie timed shutter, time lapse, etc) but for the rebel series. Any recommendations Jethro?

Exe,

I have been looking for one as well. Found this one on Amazon, seems to get decent reviews. Thinking about trying it out but haven't pulled the trigger yet.
