From everything that has been said here, it seems to me that there are inherent flaws in the design and/or construction of these products. I was tempted, but now I'm minded to stay well clear! How about the 'sun sniper" range? Any better?
I wound up buying a Sun Sniper strap.
Their swivel hardware is 100x better than the Black Rapid stuff that has been pictured in this thread.
The Black Rapid hardware looks a lot like the low end stuff you can get at a hardware store.
The Sun Sniper swivel piece is stainless steel and made in Germany.
I have had BS from a DS CS
... it reminded me of the box where my 5D mk II with 24-70 was in, that was also a pretty large one.I didn't know there was a 24-70 offered as a kit lens. Was it in North America?
I have had the same experience with Amazon up here in Canada. It is better for them to set a longer expectation up front and over deliver rather than the opposite.
Just confirming what others have said, Amazon overestimates their shipping dates to be on the safe side. I figure they do this so when they do ship it out, it makes us happier thinking it was bumped up.
Wow those are huge boxes!it takes quite a lot of space to put a camera body + 24-105 lens inside
...399 for the one you're looking at. This aspect makes a difference - you will shoot many frames making a decent timelapse. I believe they both allow "unlimited" exposures when not set on the timer, but you will have to manually stop the sequence. My experience is you set the intervalometer up, walk away and return later when all is over.The link says "Number of shots 1 to 399,-- (unlimited)"
I have the wired version - works great. As long as the functions are turned off, the battery drain is minimal (like a digital watch.) Note that your link (and the one I have) is a Nikon style with a Canon plug. A Canon style is also available if that means something to you. The Nikon style version has a larger maximum number of shots if memory serves me right.Thanks for the insight. The I posted says "YONGNUO MC-36R/C3 Wireless Timer Remote for CANON 5D II 7D 1D IV 50D 40D 30D 20D". Where do you get Nikon reference from?
There is nothing wrong with the build quality of this item - it's built as good as any full-priced factory product of this type of item. I have not been disappointed with the build quality of anything Yongnuo makes.
Get this one http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Pixel-TW282-Wireless-Timer-Remote-Canon-EOS-1D-/310318118552?pt=Camera_Camcorder_Remotes&hash=item484066b698
Much more sophisticated and better build quality!
looks interesting does the handpiece have power on off?
i have the cable version exact same handpiece and functionalityThanks.
it works well however the only thing that bugs me alot is there is no on off switch so you have to take the batteries out when you stop using it. really stupid design IMO
Not sure on how much benefit the wireless vs cable version is though the cable version is alot cheaper
