So I just upgraded to the 5D3 from the 60D and figured out my shutter release from the 60 doesn't work on the 5D3 . I've also been interested in doing some time lapse star shots. came across this intervalometer on B&H

Does anyone have it or can give any advice on a different one they like? Thanks in advance

Yeah, it's a good one. Plus, the camera cords can be obtained separately so if you need to use it with a different camera type down the road, it's a $8 cable not a $80 release.

I've got a Shutterboss. Extremely easy to use and reliable.

Went ahead and ordered the wireless shutterboss from B&H. It the Really surprises/frustrates me Canon didn't incorporate an intervalometer in to the 5D3 for the price tag it carries especially when the competitions( D700 and 800) have one built in and there cheaper! but oh well.......

Canon doesn't incorporate an intervalometer into their cameras because that functionality is satisfied by a first party accessory (external link) sold at >1000% markup.

Which is exactly why you should buy mine second-hand!

To the people who use intervalometers, what do you prefer...wired or wireless?

Also, what do you use your intervalometer for?
