Cable release (stupidity) for 5D mk1...
« on: January 24, 2012, 08:03:58 AM »
Apologies for such a daft question, got given a new RS60-E3 and wondered if I need an adapter to use it on the mk1?? Does it even work on this? Never really done any long exposure stuff and was really excited to get it but I think I'm being an idiot. Cheers

Does not seem to work on 5D1, neither Amazon's nor B&H's list of compatible cams does list the 5D1.

Most probably no adapters available...

Google is your friend.

Your release fits:  Compatible with G10, G11, G12, EOS Digital Rebel series, 60D, Elan II/IIE, Elan 7/7E, Rebel Ti /2000/G/GII/X/XS, IX/IX Lite

You need the RS-80N3.

Not sure I have seen "adapters" for these, though the release I use for Calumet sells the release and the cable separately, so if your many camera has different connections, you just buy other cables.

I would list your RS60 on Amazon and pick up the RS80 or look at the Calumet solution perhaps.  There are a lot of cheaper shutter releases as well, so you may be able to sell the Canon, get an Opteka or something similar and come out a few bucks ahead

I believe Rs60-e3 is meant for 350D and the like.

I have a classic 5D and use a generic Hahnel cable release similar to the Canon Rs80n3 ( which is suitable for use with 5D).

I happen to have a Canon release I bought.  Friend bought me some knockoff intervolimiter for a present and now I have two releases.  Just as easy to use the timer release as it is the first one, and I don't need two.  Let me know!  It's crucial to have let me tell you.
