I am soon going to buy a 50D to replace my xti. That said I'm going to have to replace my remotes. I want to get a timer remote. I found on ebay two diiferent types of timer remotes. One is the Phottix TR-80 C8 which appears to be a clone of the Canon RS-80N3. http://cgi.ebay.com …A12%7C39%3A1%7C​240%3A1318 (external link)

The other is the Phottix TR-90 C8 which appears to be a clone of the Nikon MC-36 (It appears to be Nikon's timer equivalent of the RS-80N3 for Nikon cameras) http://cgi.ebay.com …A12%7C39%3A1%7C​240%3A1318 (external link)

They both have the proper Canon connectors, are roughly the same price, roughly the same size and weight, and seem to do the same thing. Anyone know which one would be the better pick?

according to the comments at the end of this review

http://churchillphotog​rapher.blogspot.com …r-80-generic-version.html (external link)

the TR-80 uses a CR2032 button battery and can take up to 99 shots

the TR-90 C8 uses 2xAA batteries and can take up to 399 shots

i think im going to be getting the TR-90 :)

I saw that review earlier, but didn't look at the comments. Good catch on the Tr-90 having a much higher shot limit. I'm curious if their are any ergonomic differences between the two in actual use. The 80 has a control dial, the 90 has a 4 way pad.
