Is there a wire remote shutter for my t3? I tried the rc-6 remote and it wouldn't work wirelessly with my camera. One that I can use for long exposures without having to touch the camera. I am using it to create the photo of my car below but I was holding down the button with my hand so it makes them blurry.

The Canon RS-60E3 Remote Switch will work. http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …S_60E3_Remote_S​witch.html (external link) You can just use your self timer on your camera.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Many choices on e-bay, With or without timers.

I have the same camera and have used the 2 second self timer and live view to effectively minimize any vibration that might be realized by touching the camera or "mirror slap".

Yes, but the timer does not work for long exposures right?

For exposures longer than 30 sec you are using Bulb mode. I doubt that an exposure of over 30 sec will be sensitive to mirror slap... As far as the touching the camera and throwing it off target (?), well... handle with care...

I just hate having to have 2 people one to do the light and one to hold down the camera button....it is annoying having my dad sit there and hold it down as he jumps around trying to fight off the mosquitoes and knocks the camera off. :oops:

Sounds like you WILL have to spring for a remote (and some insect repellent, I chuckled when I read the description).

I have the Satechi Remote/Intervalometer. It would work perfect for your needs, as you can program how long you want the exposure to be, even when to start. It can be used as wired, or as wireless with the (included) receiver.

Look it up in the Internet. I got it through Amazon from Satechi. $64 incl. tax

Imagine him also jumping around and slapping his legs at the same time. You can imagine why the camera shifted, LOL.

Is this the remote you are talking about?

I got this

http://www.amazon.com …eywords=satechi​+remote+T3 (external link)

which I think is compatible with XSi and T3.

It is a little bit more expensive than the other one, because it has the wireless module.

The T3 will not work with a wireless remote which sucks. :( I tried the RC-6 remote and it wouldn't work.

No, you don't understand! You plug in the receiver piece to the camera, where you plug in the wired remote.

Then with the wireless piece in hand, you control the camera which thinks that it is talking to a wired remote! :D
