Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote Control Review

Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote Control Review
Note: The Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote has been replaced by the Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote.

The Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote is a tiny infrared wireless remote controller for compatible Canon EOS DSLRs including the following:

Digital Rebel T3i / 600D
Digital Rebel T2i / 550D
Digital Rebel T1i / 500D
Digital Rebel XSi / 450D
Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi / 400D
Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT / 350D
Canon EOS Digital Rebel / 300D
Canon EOS 60D
Canon EOS 7D
Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Measuring only .25" x 1.25 x 2.5" (6.5 x 32 x 63.5mm), the Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote easily fits in even a small pocket.

The RC-5 will only operate in a 2-second delay mode. Because the newer Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote Controller is the same size, the same price and allows you to choose between taking an immediate shot and using the 2-second delay, I recommend you purchase the RC-6 (or the Canon RC-1 Wireless Remote instead.

Point the Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote toward the front of the camera (line of sight only) within 16' (5m) and take the shot when you are ready.

Using a wireless remote release eliminates camera motion related to pressing the shutter release - and allows you to be a subject in your photo. Being able to stay near your subject to assist in composition (or ease stress) is another benefit. The RC-5 may also be used to activate mirror-lock and bulb-shutter functions.

The Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote is powered by 2 CR-1220 Lithium button batteries. It is a very useful device - but again, get the Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote Controller instead.
