Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 Review
So you want to mount your Canon Digital SLR on a tripod to get better digital pictures. Excellent – now you need a way to trip the shutter without moving the camera. You could use the camera’s built-in self-timer, but your subject may be long gone until it fires. The Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 may be the answer for you.
The Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 is a very simple device – it simply plugs into the side of compatible (there are many) Canon EOS Digital SLR cameras. Compatible cameras include the Canon EOS-1D, 1Ds, 1DS MARK II, 1DS Mark III, 1D Mark II, 1D Mark III, 5D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, D30, D60 … Missing an N3 port, the Rebel series (4xxD) models as of this writing are not compatible. Try the Canon RC-1 Wireless Remote Release for at least most these models).
There is one button on the Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3. Like the camera’s shutter release, the RS-80N3 supports a half-press or full press – which releases the shutter. In addition, the remote release button slides forward while pressed in – this will lock the shutter open in B (Bulb) mode.
Pictured above is the Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 beside the larger, more expensive and more capable Canon Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3. The Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 is very light but relatively expensive but valuable to own – it is a valuable piece of kit to have.
