Can anyone give me an opinion about a very good wireless remote for the 30D?
Thanks and Merry Christmas

I bought this one (external link) from Gaget Infinity Universe. It works good and is cheap. Only problem is it ships from Hong Kong so it takes a couple of weeks for delivery.

One thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have an option of a 2 second delay after you push the trigger, which some other models have. This can come in handy if you are trying to take a self-portrait and want to get your remote control out of the picture.

I got one off ebay from Hong Kong and it won't work. It will focus but won't actuate the shutter. grrr. It would likely cost me more to ship it back than I paid for it, close enough. I didn't deem it worthy of shipping back.

I hear I may get a wired one for Christmas.

do you use pocket wizards for any lighting?

If you do you can buy a $90 cable to make your PW a wireless trigger.
