The RC-1 is small, light, inexpensive and highly useful. Point the Canon RC-1 Wireless Remote toward the front of the camera (line of sight only) and take full control the shutter.

The RC-1 may also be used to activate mirror-lock and bulb-shutter functions."
The picture above shows the two parts of the Canon RC-1 Wireless Remote. The back may be threaded onto a camera strap for storage/transport. Unclip the remote release for use.
No more vibrations caused by physically pressing the shutter release. No more running to get into the picture after releasing the self timer. No more running back to the camera for the second just-in-case-your-aunt-blinked shot. Stay near your subject to assist composition (or ease stress).
Powered by 2 CR-1220 Lithium button batteries, the Canon RC-1 Wireless Remote is a very useful device.
