One of the most important Add-on Equip. for me
« on: December 17, 2013, 08:55:35 AM »
Dear Friends.
One of the most important add on equipment( for me) of all EOS DSLR Cameras including this EOS-M are the Remote control for shutter operation, Both Wire and Wireless, When I shoot with Tripods in the night time or at Golden hours= for the most sharpest photos, with slow shutter speed, Plus when you want to shoot your self where no one around you.
Yes, I have so many Remote shutter controls, But This One  is so cheap and  very small, that I can slip in my shirt pocket--Opteka RC-4 Wireless Remote Control, Made in China = $ 6.95 US Dollars, And Can use with EOS-M, 5D MK II and 7D.
Yes, I highly recommend to you.
Enjoy
Your Friend, Surapon

Dear Surapon,

Can you please share some info about the purpose of 'S', 'W' and 'T' buttons in the middle part this gadget?

(At the moment I still think that I'm happy with old RC-1 remote. I like that I can conceal it in my hand (while taking group photo with myself in picture) without any efforts...)

EF: 50/1.8 II | 17-40 | 24-105 | 70-300DO / EF-S: 10-22 | 18-55 | 18-55 IS | Sigma 30/1.4 (old one) / EF-M: 11-22 | 18-55 | 22
I also own few Canon flashes, remotes, blends, bags, cases (including waterproof one) and even batteries! :)

Dear Zlyden.
The  manual  of this equipment are very poor written,  For Canon DSLR include EOS-M,  we can use only Upper small rectangular Symbol ,  S= Shoot as set per Canon Setting = 10 Sec.,  and 2S = Shoot at 2 Second delay--------BIG BUT = The Large Rectangular symbol below are not for Canon Regular DSLR, But for Canon Point and shoot( ???---Not for my SX160 IS), which  have Power Zoom Lens, W = Wide angle and T = Telephoto----Ha, Ha, Ha---Do not work with Lens that we need to use our fingers to rotate the zoom ring.
But Less than 7 US Dollars , I do not care, Just Press and Shoot.
Nice to talk to you.
